Fun list! Where'd you find it? What an array of stuff on here. I'm going to go through it later and answer for myself. Some are pretty simple ~ reading a book in a day, for example. Others...well, suffice it to say if you ever, EVER see me bungee jumping you can assume I'm either highly medicated or being forced at gunpoint. LOL
