the list!

One of my favorite things to do is make lists. My longest and most important list consists of things I’d like to do in my life (don’t call it a bucket list or you’ll get a swift kick in the face – i started this before that awful movie which I have proudly not seen). Some of them simple, some of them complex. The list changes as I mark things off but it always stays at 100 or so. For your perusal:
