    100 Things Meme Comment
    Gregory Morris, 12/3/08 5:32:37 pm
    Ok. I'll do it. I hear there's a new blogosphere law saying you must participate in one-meme-a-month.

    *1. Started your own blog. - Check.
    *2. Slept under the stars. - Not yet in FL, but all the time in WV.
    *3. Played in a band. - Don't ask.
    4. Visited Hawaii. - 'Spensive. Maybe when I win the lottery.
    *5. Watched a meteor shower. - Some of my fondest memories are laying on top of a mountain, in the middle of nowhere, on top of piles of blankets with a bunch of friends staring at the night sky.
    *6. Given more than you can afford to charity. - When you make a commitment, you follow through.
    *7. Been to Disneyland. - Just got back.
    *8. Climbed a mountain. - Oh hell yes. WV doesn't have any Kilimanjaros, but I've topped out thousands of feet above where I started.
    *9. Held a praying mantis. - One time we found a nest in our christmas tree. We saved it until spring when it hatched. Baby mantises (mantii?) are super damn cute.
    *10. Sang a solo. - In honor choir in 6th grade. Dork? Me?
    11. Bungee jumped. - Meh.
    12. Visited Paris. - Double Meh.
    *13. Watched a lightning storm at sea. - Thankfully we passed through a narrow gap between two huge thunder storms. At night.
    *14. Taught yourself an art from scratch. - Er, lots of things are considered "art". I taught myself most of what I know.
    15. Adopted a child. - Might happen some day.
    *16. Had food poisoning. - Uck.
    17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty. - I'd like to some day, but it requires visiting New York City.
    *18. Grown your own vegetables. - Used to have a damn nice garden in WV. Here in FL, gardening is more complicated.
    19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France. - Meh. See #12.
    20. Slept on an overnight train. - Been on plenty of trains. Never an overnight train though.
    *21. Had a pillow fight. - Who hasn't?
    22. Hitch hiked. - Nope.
    *23. Taken a sick day when you’re not ill. - I call them "mental health" days.
    *24. Built a snow fort. - I feel sorry for people who grew up in the deep south and never got to feel a snowball thwack against the back of their head.
    *25. Held a lamb. - In my belly.
    *26. Gone skinny dipping. - Duh. Besides, I have my own pool.
    27. Run a Marathon. - Hah!
    28. Ridden in a gondola in Venice. - Maybe some day. My brother did, and said the canals stink like nothing else.
    *29. Seen a total eclipse. - Built numerous little contraptions to watch it, from pin-holes in shoe boxes, to double-layered exposed film viewers.
    *30. Watched a sunrise or sunset. - Oh, come on. I would bet it would be less common not to have seen a sunrise or sunset. After all, they happen every day.
    *31. Hit a home run. - In the park. In T-ball.
    *32. Been on a cruise. - I hate cruises, but I've been on two.

    38. Seen the Leaning Tower of Pisa in person. - Meh.

    *41. Sung karaoke. - Only after a few drinks.
    42. Seen Old Faithful geyser erupt. - Definitely on the list.
    43. Bought a stranger a meal at a restaurant. - No, but I've bought beer for strangers.
    44. Visited Africa. - Also on the list.

    *53. Played in the mud. - I also feel sorry for anyone who's parents were so over-protective that they never dove head-first into a worm-filled puddle.

    60. Served at a soup kitchen. - No, and now I feel guilty.
    61. Sold Girl Scout Cookies. - No, but I do admit to eating more of them than I ought to.
    62. Gone whale watching. - I'd love to watch whales sometime, but I'm not sure I'd be able to handle being around filthy stinking hippies for that long.
    *63. Got flowers for no reason. - Well, I've never seen a reason, but they sure do cheer my wife up.
    *64. Donated blood, platelets or plasma. - Once. I hate needles.
    65. Gone sky diving. - Meh.
    66. Visited a Nazi Concentration Camp. - On the list. History is important.

    *71. Eaten Caviar. - Not my favorite.
    *72. Pieced a quilt. - Yes, I know how to use a sewing machine. Don't you?
    *73. Stood in Times Square. - And it took a week to get the smell of piss out of my clothes.

    80. Published a book. - Nope.
    81. Visited the Vatican. - Again with the Europe stuff.

    *87. Killed and prepared an animal for eating. - Fish count. Never anything warm-blooded.
    *88. Had chickenpox. - A miserable right of passage for a child.
