But yes I have ridden an Elephant :)

Dreamybee said...

What a fun list! And what a lot you've done!!

beastmomma said...

That is very impressive. I only completed 42.

lilly said...

I love the list! I think I'll do it, maybe it'll give me a kick to actually do more in my life.
If I do fill out the list, is it going to be okay to put it up on my blog?

Stephanie said...

WOW, and I thought my three trips to Hawaii were a lot!

Bogsider said...

Now I have seen this list around many places and seriously wondering if I should steal it :-)

Ramya said...

i was considering doing this list and then i realized that i haven't really done too many things on this list..so decided to stay away..:) congrats on your impressive 52!

cali said...

You've done three things I'd like to do but haven't yet: hold a lamb; stand in Times Square and; sleep on an overnight train - I love trains. I wonder if I've done anything you'd like to try...

softdrink said...

Lilly and Lou and Dreamybee - it was fun...go for it!

Ramya - hopefully #88 (chicken pox) is one of those things you haven't done!

Stephanie - the boyfriend loves to surf (and watch the pro surf competitions) so it's a popular vacation spot for us. Although after 5 trips in 5 years, we decided to skip a few years.

beastmomma - Ah, but I'm pretty sure I'm older than you.

Cali - I only know about the lamb because I have a picture somewhere. I think I was 3 or 4 at the time.

anne said...

Wow, impressive that you've done 52 of these things! Very cool list!

Ramya said...

lol! Thankfully no! but I have done #99 (twice!)(not fun!), #100 (fun!), #78 (totally fun!), etc.

girasoli said...

Very impressive! (sorry it has taken me so long to finally comment. So who did you meet that was famous? Next time you come to Hawaii, we will have to get together :)

trish said...

Oof. I've only done 23. But I haven't traveled much, so that eliminates like half of those things. Oh well. Gives me something to shoot for. :-)

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
