The Mac has the photos. Patience is on the Mac. So thanks to Sarah at Just Me and Lucy at Dimishing Lucy, I have decided to jump on the list bandwagon for today!

Instructions: The post is a list of 99 things you could have done, and you are supposed to bold the ones that you yourself have done.

3. Played in a band

4. Visited Hawaii (okay, technically a flight change in Honolulu...)

5. Watched a meteor shower (I was still living at home, and Dad, who gave us our love of science and nature, dragged us out of bed at crazy o'clock to see it. Amazing.)

6. Given more than you can afford to charity

7. Been to DisneyWorld (no, but like Lucy, I'm counting DisneyLand. Fun!)
