99 Things

I stole this from Deals. And I'm not ashamed of it. This weekend was insane, and maybe I'll tell you about it someday, but for now I'm tired and not feeling all that creative.

Here are 99 things, that I've done, want to do, or want no part of. And here are how they're coded:

Things you've already done: bold
Things you'd like to do: italicized
Things you haven't done nor wish to: regular text

Whaaaat? You don't want to see the Alamo in person? Say it isn't so!! :P

Heather said...

deals - Oops, I guess I missed that one. Yes, I want to visit the freaking Alamo. Calm down. Though I suppose I would freak out if you said that you had no interest in visiting the Upper Peninsula, as it is glorious.

Waayers said...

This is fun! I might copy you and send this to all my friends. Because I am totally BORED!

I love my job....

Deals On Wheels said...

Um...what's the upper peninsula?

mush said...

I know, I know... what's up with the annoying questions:
13. Watched a lightning storm at sea. Do you mean when the storm is at sea or when you are at sea?
17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty. Are you old enough to have walked to the top of the Washington Monument?
32. Been on a cruise. Just my opinion, but unless you are going to Alaska, I think it would be BORING AS HELL.

Heather said...

waayers - I know!

deals - You're just messing with me, right?

mush - Some of the scenarios are a little confusing, I agree.
13. I took that to mean standing on the beach and watching the storm. I'm sure that some people would want to be in the middle of it, but those people are insane.
17. My brother and mom walked to the top of the Washington Monument when I was little. My dad and I wanted to go see more at American History :)
23. I agree. I would love to go on a cruise near Alaska. I've seen whales in the Atlantic, and I think that I should see them in the Pacific, too!

Heather said...

mush - Nicely done! I should be taking a cue from you!

a said...

you have too had your portrait painted! it's hanging on your parents' wall! okay, well...drawn maybe? what is that, anyway?

Heather said...

a - You are exactly right. I completely forgot about it. It's in charcoal, so I suppose that it counts...
