    And now it shall be mine as well. (Thanks — adorable picture! How can you not want to pinch that baby’s cheeks 24/7?)

    Interesting meme. I’ve done some things you haven’t (and of course, vice versa.) I wish I were half as well-traveled as you are!

  3. purple chai Says:

    Thanks, I have Andersonville in the library, if I want it, which I don’t, and R supplies all my Nick Hornby needs. When I was a kid in 8th or 9th grade, the boy who sat next to me in English was reading Andersonville and I took a good long look at it, and crossed it off my list for life.

    I’m pretty sure I can say I will never complete #87.

  5. Elle Says:

    Oooh, good meme. I, too, will steal it for my own. Regarding #87, we do that all the time — the crawfish & crabs are still kicking when the boiling water arrives.
