      Your score is 53.
      Still so many things to do!
      White House, the Great Wall of China, not published books & not made movies are waiting for you :-D
      Be in a hurry ;-)


      P.S. Me? To forget you? IMPOSSIBLE! I visit your blog & QBB all the time. Really miss you...

      Can't believe you actually counted them! How many have you scored??

      I am not looking forward to either White House or Great Wall of China, but there are a few things I'd like to do. Like, visit Hawaii and check out Mona Lisa. And perhaps a helicopter ride (with this being very popular in Dubai, I could have already done it.... so perhaps I don't really want it that bad). And a few of the ones I've done I didn't enjoy much. Like bee stings and cruises). Still, so much to do, so little time!

      Missed you lots ;-)

      Yes, I counted it twice :-)

      I have tried very few things from the list till now.
      On the other hand I could write my own list :-D

      Wonder, where can I realize no.66...

      I like your list, I have been going through a dry spell for blog posts, I am going to borrow it for my next post. Be sure to check it out :-)

      Not all the things on the list are worth doing :) I would like to read your own list though.

      Don Veto,

      I read yours - it's beyond hilarious! And I am ever so jealous!! You've done a few things I have been only dreaming about! Not telling you which ones tho!

      I am guilty of all those things in plain lettering.
