  1. Great post. I like the quick and to the point approach being a BIG fan of lists. When I get a moment, I’ll have to make my lists. I’ll be sure to let you know. We share lots of similar things like black turtlenecks, wishing I could run, positive attitude, being artistic and creative, and fear of driving fast next to cement pylons (to name a few).
