Fun list! I'm off to add it to my blog...

Fonda said...

very interesting! Don't forget you rescued Ellie and started IASAR!

Sarah C. said...

Glad you played along and LOL at the adds. I've worn 2 different colored shoes at the same time, too - one teal and one peach Chucks high tops when I was in elementary school. Yeah, I was cool. LOL :D

Wait I don't understand - is there highlighting on the original list? OK I just went to Heather's & I can see the highlights on hers. Maybe my computer screen's just not good enough. Maybe I need to change the tilt or something.

Seen a sunset or sunrise - hasn't EVERYONE done that? Or more importantly, hasn't everyone eaten frosting out of the can?!?!?! OK, so my own kids haven't actually done that (that I know of) since I found out what-all it was made of before they were born & don't buy it. :-0

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Nope. Even tilting my screen all around I still can't see any highlights. So what numbers are they???? I'm all kinds of curious now. Also, I'd like to add "Directed someone ELSE to go the wrong way down a one way street while giving directions" underneath the one way street one. :-) :-) :-)

Janet said...

Jill--My DD had trouble seeing it on her laptop, too!! Sorry! I added stars so you can see the ones I highlighted, lest you think I've done ALL of these things or NONE! lol

Cheri said...

I better get to work...I want in on this action too! I'll try to comment again after I've been through them all 1 by 1.

Cheri said...

Ok, I played along over on my blog. My big question (and I know you said don't ask, lol) is why you helped with a hemorrhoidectomy...at least I have an excuse;)

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Hey thanks, I can see it now!
