07. Taken a candlelit bath with someone.
08. Said “I love you” and meant it. (Too many times to count. :-)

11. Visited Paris
12. Watched a lightning storm at sea
13. Stayed up all night long and saw the sun rise.

22. Watched a meteor shower
23. Gotten drunk on champagne
24. Given more than you can afford to charity. (Not unless you count being in debt, as in, large credit card balance, but still gave.)
25. Looked up at the night sky through a telescope (That reminds me, we need to get our telescope back from a friend of Mr. Mo’s
26. Had an uncontrollable giggling fit at the worst possible moment. (I've definitely gotten the giggles before, but not at a really bad or inappropriate time, thank God.)

28. Bet on a winning horse
29. Asked out a stranger
30. Had a snowball fight
31. Screamed as loudly as you possibly can (Oh yeah. In the middle of the street when I was a wee bairn. My next door neighbor and I would scream in unison and hear that weird "third" screech. Don't know what I'm talking about? You'd have to be a girl, or a young lad before your voice changed, to get the effect. At least I think it only works with high-pitched screams.)

53. In a restaurant, sat at a stranger’s table and had a meal with them
54. Visited Japan
55. Milked a cow
56. Alphabetized your CDs
57. Pretended to be a superhero. (As a kid, and also in H.S., when I was Supergirl at a Halloween party. I didn’t feel like a super girl, though. I hadn’t ever had anything to drink prior to that except a sip of champagne on New Year’s eve. Someone spiked the punch with grain alcohol, and I didn’t know it. I only had 2 ½ 8 oz. cupsful, but that was enough to make me sick as a dog. I had lost the ability to walk on my own, and two of my buddies were supporting me on either side, as I limped to the car. So I've definitely been on the receiving end of being taken care of while drunk. )
