  4. This animal you killed and ate. What was it wearing?

  5. Interesting list...it would also be fun to make your own list of things you have done. I am sure it would be very interesting.

  6. i've seen these lists in the blogosphere before but yours is quite amazing

  7. This time I didn't do any of the one's you didn't do.
    You certainly have lived a very full life.

    Tom: Ew, don’t like basements, especially at massacres.

    Jeff B: Especially when you run out of other ideas.

    Doug: A gold and silver tiara.

    Mo’a: I think some of the more interesting things never make it on lists.

    Juliana: I have inherited good jeans.

    Dr. John: I have been around, as they say.

When I volunteered in a hospital I was part of a team who saved several lives, but I can't take full credit for any one. That is amazing!

  10. Actonbell: It has and still is a very good life. Yeah, I got a funny one for a change.

    Tsduff: I took this a couple of ways - Once someone dropped to the floor with a gran mal (sp?) seisure and everyone panicked but me (until after it was over.) And once I deflected someone strung out on speed from attacking others, that kind of thing.
