    Cool list, but I'm not stealing it, I've obviously lived a pathetic sheltered life--LOL.

    Off Topic, your weatherpixie says it's 12 degrees--OMG it's winter.

    Sandie ~ I'll go check out your answers :-)

    Tara Marie ~ I thought I'd been pretty sheltered until I'd seen all the things I'd done. Then I thought, "Well, no wonder I'm tired!" :-) Yes, winter's sneaking in on us. We went shopping a little last night ~ snow flurries and all.

    Some I've done, some I have no desire to do, some I really do want to do. I think maybe I'll re-create my life list and start checking things off :)

    Thanx for sharing.

    I'm like Tara Marie on this one... I've lived a very boring life too :D I don't think I did anything on this list... ^^;

     
  • At 6:57 PM, Blogger Jenster

    I just want to know what movie you were in!! How exciting! :o)

    Jen

    I copied the list, but don't know if I'll post it. Maybe I'll just post the highlighted items. Hmmmmm...decisions, decisions.

     
  • At 7:16 AM, Blogger Zeek

    I saw this on c2's blog too! Gonna have to steal it for mine!

    "Slept for more than 30 hours over the course of 48 hours"

    WHOA! You must have be TIR*RED!

     
  • At 8:20 AM, Blogger Isabel

    Nice list. I agree with Zeek, you must have been verra tired.

     
  • At 8:23 AM, Blogger Devonna

    Stacy ~ There's a lot on this list I'd love to do. Maybe someday...

    Nath ~ Heck, I still think I'm boring ~ with or without this list :-)

    Jen ~ When I was a nanny I was an extra in 2 movies ~ all made for TV. One of them was with Morgan Fairchild ~ I don't even remember the name of it. We just happened to be at the Sherman Oaks Galleria at the time and the director told us that instead of standing around and watching to make ourselves useful. That's how I accidently got in that one. I was also in a movie called "When We Were Young" (I actually got paid for that one). It had Cindy Gibb, Grant Show, Stephen Weber, Eric LaSalle. I sure wish I could get a copy of that movie ~ you can actually see me in it. :-).

    Rosie ~ Well, it's helpful when you don't have a thing to post about :-)

    Zeek ~ Not so much tired as being young, stupid, and drink a 5th of Tequila all by myself (FYI ~ the smell of that stuff still turns my stomach).

     
  • At 8:24 AM, Blogger Devonna

    Hey Izzy ~ Nope, not so much tired. But I sure don't remember much about those days. :-)

     
  • At 9:51 AM, Blogger Lori

    This looks like fun! I'm gonna have to steal it :)

     
  • At 10:37 AM, Blogger Kookie

    Hmm, I was thinking of stealing this one but I thought better...what am I gonna with it? There really isn't much I could edit into bold. LOL! Lame, lame, lame.

     
  • At 12:21 PM, Blogger Devonna

    Lori ~ I'll have to go check out your answers.

    Kookie ~ Hmm, maybe make yourself a list from this list of things you want to do? Maybe that's a meme for another day :-)

     
  • At 4:01 PM, Blogger Jenster

    Like, oh my gosh! You were, like, at the Galleria and they, like, filmed a movie while you were there? (that was my sad, sad rendition of a Valley Girl.)

    Very cool, Dev!

    Jen

     
  • At 4:07 PM, Blogger Devonna

    Jen ~ Like, gag me with a spoon :-)

     
  • At 5:08 PM, Blogger Jenster

    Like totally!

     
  • At 8:11 AM, Blogger Zeek

    LMAO! Ok Dev, now that I think about it, I may have been there too! The smell of Yukon Jack turns my stomache to this day for the same reason!

    BTW, what booth will you have at the fair this year?

     
  • At 8:31 AM, Blogger Devonna

    Zeek ~ We're actually going to do a few of them. For the Strawberry Festival, we're going to have fancy chocolate covered strawberries; then for the Farmer's Market we're talking about having a lunch table (aka fancy sandwiches) and also have some homemade goodies. Those types of things sell fast at the Farmer's Market. We're going to rent a portable fridge unit (they're relatively inexpensive) and then you can rent the kitchens at the local shelters, etc., for very cheap ~ so you virtually have very little overhead. We figured if we're really serious about opening our own catering business, it's a great way to get our names out there.
