w0w! Very interesting, Hootergirl. I may steal this from you and do it on my blog.

Sayre said...

I did it! You've been a busy girl, too...

Fleur de Lisa said...

I think I did this one a long time ago. I wonder if it's changed?

Hope Rachel has a fantastic trip!

Tookie Tail said...

I would be freaking out too if my daughter left the country without me. It's a mother's right! :)
Loved your meme! Think I might try it out too on my blog. Thanks! I hope your daughter has a safe trip!

Trukindog said...

You have never passed out cold or crashed a party....COME OOOOOON !

I have, I have.
I've done 1,3,6,8,9,12,13,14,15,17,19,20,22,24,25,30,31,33,34,etc. tot. 63 out of 150? Geez, I've got some living to do. Look's like most of it needs to be in other countries! And I have been on 2 continents, too many countries to count, and almost got to add another state to my travel list in the US. (I was this__close to Utah.)
Yes, J suggested I should just go + drive there, but at $4.00 / gallon for diesel, that would have been a pricey trip.
At least I got to drive through the rockies - a 1st for me.

Craig - That is a compliment. You don't do memes very often.

Sayre - I'll be over shortly to check yours out.

Lisa - Thanks. I'm sure she will have a blast. It's just her mother who's a nervous wreck.

Tookie - Yes, "freaking out" would be a good description of me right now. You should have seen me at the mall last night. I was a little out of control with the spending. I will come over to see your list shortly.

Truckindog - Sorry, I've hardly even ever been drunk. And if I ever crashed a party, it must not have been any big deal 'cause I don't remember it. You didn't even tell us what YOU have done.

Sexy Trucker - You've held a tarantula? Ugh. Can we do #7 and #13 together sometime? I'm glad we've done #8! XXOO!


Trukindog said...

I swiped it to do next wensday at my place.

Mr. Fabulous said...

i would be surprised if anyone could go five days without food...

Canadian flake said...

lol thanks for sharing...this list reminding me what a boring life I have led...lmao.

Wanted to also thank you for the kind and thoughtful words of support on my meant more to me than you will ever know.


HoosierGirl5 said...

Truckindog - I anxiously await your answers!

Mr. Fab - Yeah, what's up with THAT one? I can't even go a day.

C.Flake - I know what you mean. My list is pretty boring, too. And as for supporting you, you are welcome.

The average male with above average BMI can go 20 days without food.
Sorry Ladies, and you skinny types; your time is critically shorter.
The key element here isn't food, but water and lots of it in place of food.
Oops, I'm just saying.

Oh yeah baby,
we can do it.

If we are able to.

I'm getting old and fragile. Those candles can lead to a serious chafing situation. Not to mention "the wax job"

There's a new job situation for me, for you to agree on.
Wax on, wax off! + I'm a happy camper. agh, no. (No happy campin now!)
