Your life seems as boring as mine....but it was fun to read!

Cool list!

I wish I could say "published a book", but with this new child protection law, my publisher might go out of business before my first one goes to print. I'm pretty bummed, to say the least.

You've never had chicken pox???

I like that you are a scardy cat like me with some things.... sky diving, bungee jumping... no thanks

Theres a show over here "The Farmer wants a Wife" - where a bachelor farmer has all these women hoping to marry him, last year, one took his "Top 10" skydiving as the first "group date" - that would have ended it for me....

Very cool list. Is that human cart thing you referred to a rikshaw??
