I am drawn to the copied post, however, because it involves a list. A long list. And I like lists. If you are not familiar with the concept, the blogger is supposed to copy these 100 items, paste them into their own blog entry, then re-do the font so that the bold items communicate activities that the blogger has experienced. I will comply, with annotations.
1. Started your own blog
Honestly, do you need this item? How many people posting this to their blog have not started a blog? I guess someone else could have started their blog for them...
2. Slept under the stars
Yes, a couple times, most notably on a trampoline.
3. Played in a band
Is there a band I haven't played in? I mean, besides those things that most people think of when they hear the word "band."
4. Visited Hawaii
Alas, no. And don't remind me, either, I'm a little touchy about it.
5. Watched a meteor shower
Define "shower." I don't know.
6. Given more than you can afford to charity
How can you give more than you can afford? You can only give what you have, and you can't give any more than that. This one makes no sense.
7. Been to Disneyland
Multiple times. I know Disneyland.
8. Climbed a mountain
Define mountain. I may or may not have, depending on the definition.
9. Held a praying mantis
Did I ever hold one? I can't remember, though I've held all sorts of other things: fish, snails, caterpillars, pill bugs, spiders, mice, rats, hamsters, cats, dogs, rabbits, lizards, snakes, frogs, toads, guinea pigs, ducklings, chicks, other birds, etc. I'm going to assume that I've held a praying mantis as well.
10. Sang a solo
Multiple times. Is there a specific venue indicated here?
11. Bungee jumped
Boo-ya. I was eleven or so. It was great. They gave me a shirt that said on the back, "Jump this!" in kind of the same style as those "No Fear" shirts that were popular back then. I didn't wear it much, for fear someone would take it literally and jump me.
12. Gone on a hot air balloon ride
No, but wouldn't that be great?
13. Watched a lightning storm at sea
No, but I've watched from other places, like from my bed, under a blanket.
14. Taught yourself an art from scratch
What is meant by "art"? And what is meant by "taught"? Can you become skilled in any art without outside human interaction and study? I don't like this item. I denounce its assumptions.
15. Adopted a child
Well, that's an unqualified no.
16. Had food poisoning
I have no idea. I have a rather strong stomach, so if I did and it was slight, I might not have noticed it.
17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty
This would presuppose that I'd ever been to New York City.
18. Grown your own vegetables
With parental guidance (I was a kid).
19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France
Yes, and what a thrill that was. Take it from me, folks: if you want to get a close-up, save yourself a couple thousand dollars and a big headache, and buy a print.
20. Slept on an overnight train
Almost, but no.
21. Had a pillow fight
I generally lose, however, since I don't like actually hurting people.
22. Hitch hiked
No, but I gave a hitchhiker a ride once. Well, actually he was just a homeless man who asked me for a ride, and I said yes. But that's technically hitchhiking, is it not?
23. Taken a sick day when you’re not ill
Mentally, or physically? Because I think the standard measurements for illnesses and qualifications for sick days are severely limited in the case of mental breakdowns.
24. Built a snow fort
I would claim a geographical disadvantage on this point if it were not for the fact that my parents took us each year to play in the snow, and also that I've lived in Utah for the last ten years (more or less).
25. Held a lamb
Wouldn't that be a great experience? I've had a calf suck my thumb, but I've never held a lamb.
