Just for you I went ahead and did this too. It actually was kinda fun and I enjoyed learning stuff about you that most people never really learn unless they hangout a lot and have been friends for a long time.

How about the catagory of 'things you did but didnt want to/wouldnt do again'?
For instance, going to Disneyland.

@Liz: Funny thing is, some of these, even my friends wouldn't have known, simply because I didn't deem them interesting enough to share. I'm looking forward to reading yours.

@Sophie: Interesting. I suggest splitting that into two further lists.

Things I'm glad I did, but wouldn't do again:
Caving (Spelunking for you Yanks)

Things I wish I'd never done:
Studied Economics
Watched Titanic
Bought a pager
Got assaulted by a gang

etc :)

Okay, I was bored too. There's only so much snow you can watch before it starts getting a bit too repetative.

LucyTolliday said...

Yes, I've done one as well. (I've kinda forgotten most of my economics classes other than a few curves such)

It's terrible , I was going to go through & tick each off.
So many US specific ones made me wander off & go do something else though .
