11-20 of the things I've done in my life

In an effort to show up my sister, which lets be honest-both our blogs are purely a contest to outpost one another, I have to update tonight because she updated tonight. After this list though you'll be begging for me to not post again. I'm boring!

11. Bungee jumped - Does Lagoon's skycoaster count? I don't think it does, so no. But I have jumped off a childhood home porch with a homemade parachute.

12. Visited Paris - In Las Vegas and it was okay.

13. Watched a lightning storm at sea -Not that I recall. But if someone has is it supposed to be beautiful or downright frightening?

14. Taught yourself an art from scratch - I believe everything I need to know I learned in kindergarten, so no. Plus classes are so so so informative. I just wish no one would take them but me. I don't like it when others take up precious time by asking, deemed stupid by me, stupid questions.

15. Adopted a child - Wrote a paper about how adopting would relieve the over population of the world.

16. Had food poisoning - I think most people mistake "the 24 hour flu" as food poisoning. I don't think food poisoning actually happens that often.

17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty - I've never even been to New York. The farthest east I've ever been has been Pennsylvania, west Pennsylvania.

18. Grown your own vegetables - No, but I do want to try, and succeed, at some point in my life.

19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France - Somehow, the Mona Lisa wasn't in the Paris I went to.

20. Slept on an overnight train - No, but apparently it might be happening this summer or sometime soon.

I didn't do a single thing on this list!!! I hope I fare better on the next ten.

But I don't want to end on a boring note. Did you know only 9% of the entire worlds population is left-handed? I heard this tidbit of info on NCIS, but I had to know if this is the widely accepted percentage. So I googled. Which of course led me to Wikipedia, one of my favorite sites. I don't know why I just don't start there? And indeed, it corraberates the statement. One of my sisters is left-handed, so-way to represent that 7-10% of the population!

I never realized how I take being right-handed for granted. Knives, computer mouses, guitars, pianos and cameras are all items that are easier used right-handed than left. Of course you can get left-handed versions of most of these, but at a higher cost. Thank goodness I'm right handed.


  1. Blog on (corny version of game on)! Beat you out again tonight. I don't think you will be able to keep this up.

    As for the Lagoon thing, as I recall you were all big and brave to do it but then when it came time to tell them who would pull the cord I had to step up and fill those shoes. I miss it though, totally want to do again. I want H to enjoy it too but I am scared he gets to scared on some rides. I don't want to scare him out of never riding on something again or trying another as he gets older.
