I found this post from September 2008 when I was searching my posts for something recently. Let's see what has changed in 9 years! The bold is the original list.

#85 and #184 surprise me that they aren't on your list.

I just might have to do this. In some ways it makes my life look interesting. In other ways it makes it look boring. And there are a lot of interesting things not on the list that I've done too.
