Um...seriously friend, #9? YOU HELD A BUG EATING BUG? ((shudder)) and I'm SO with you on never bungee jumping.

It was fun to see your list; see which ones we have in common, which ones we don't. Geez, I'd sure love to swap out my food poisoning episode (thank your lucky stars!) for flying in a helicopter! Who was the famous person you met? Mine was Jody Sweeten... you know... Full House? I was a huge fan when I was little, lol.

Blessings, Carolynn

I've only done 39 of them. Now, I am feeling dissatisfied with my life.

I lost count about half-way through... I reckon I'm below 50% but hopefully I'm also less than 50% through my life!

I was at the Great Wall of China in September, it's a tourist trap but it's still one of the most amazing places I've been.
