Many thanks to Katie, for inspiring me to do 101 things in 1001 days. Check out her list on her blog, This Side. Please note that some of these are taken from my list of Things to do Before I Die, which really accomplishes 2 things at once. Two lists. Whatever.

    I’m not convinced that #12 is doable. How old will he be by Apr 2012? And be sure that you teach him BAAANH-WEE-UH! (#23)

    Great list! I love it! I forgot to put the original site on my blog (I should go do that now). It’s from http://www.dayzeroproject.com and you can paste your link with your list on the master site, and it lets you download a time ticker and everything. I really liked a few of yours and may make them “honorary” goals.

    you should join us at http://www.worldswapping.com

    It would be great to add to a 101 list
