100 Item Bucket List

I recently saw this post on Christine's blog. I'm sure you all have heard of the bucket list. Instead of doing things before I die, here is a list of things I have already done.

Wanna play? All you have to do is copy the list and highlight (or make it bold) of all the things that you have done. The comments in the parentheses were made by me. I always have to comment on something. It's like a sickness or something. :-D

I have...

1. Started my own blog (on August 28, 2008)
2. Slept under the stars (one of the many camping trips I took as a child)

Christine said...

I like the one where you've bought a stranger a're all heart really. And that you know CPR...good for you (and the child you saved)

Lilly said...

Wow you have done a lot - thats impressive. And I would like to know about any lucrative ebay business. Could do with something like that! Great bucket list. I might give this one a try too.

BIBI said...

I was very terrified, but she's okay now and getting on my nerves as of now! :D

Thanks for visiting PunkyBean. Thanks for the comment as well.

I try Christine. *SIGH* It is so hard when you see soooo much suffering. I think that is why I moved into the country.
It breaks my heart when I go into the city and see lots of homeless people.
But you really can't escape it, and this is what I am trying to live with.

BIBI said...

Thanks Lilly. Yeah eBay has been good to me thus so far. Thank goodness!

BIBI said...

Tehehehe Speedcat. You're funny!
Can't sing, sound like a prepubescent boy with a cold! :P

Ben said...

If I can't come up with 100 does that mean I'm lazy or am going to die soon or both?

BIBI said...

Hiya Ben. Welcome and thanks for your comment.
Haha! I don't think it matters. Good luck with your list! :)
