maybe this is better for a profile page. but i need blogging material. this came from one of those mass forwards my granny likes to send. feel free to use and send your own mass emails or post on your blog like i did.

Hit forward and place an X by all the things you've done and remove the X from the ones you have not. Answer the 30 questions at the end and send it to your friends (including me).

(x) Skipped school - only sort of but with mom's permission and it was to go to the library to do research for a school assignment.
(x) Watched someone die - the memory is still too fresh. it'll be the anniversary next week.
(x) Gone on a blind date - i get a kick out of them
(x) Been to Mexico - lived there 5 years
(x ) Been to Florida - wish i could remember - i was only about 2
(x ) Been to the Caribbean - doesn't puerto rico count? i'm counting it.
(x) Been overseas
(x) Been on a plane
( ) Jumped out of a plane
( ) Been on a Helicopter
(x) Been on a train - took one to ny with my 7th grade math class - crazy fun - what were the teachers thinking????
(x) Been lost - metaphorically and all
(x) Been on the opposite side of the country - every side imaginable except alaska and hawaii
(x) Gone to Washington, DC - heck i'll be there in two weeks to visit the sis - hooray!
(x) Swam in the ocean - learned to swim in shark infested waters no less!
(x) Cried yourself to sleep - tears happen
( ) Played cops and robbers
(x) Recently colored with crayons - does the last year count as recent? i'm hoping so
(x) Sang Karaoke - ah, those college days of residence halls association conferences
(x) Paid for a meal with coins only - my parents bought me breakfast of good 'n plenties out of a vending machine when i was a kid - we were on the road - it was food.
(x) Done something you told yourself you wouldn't - the only thing coming to mind was getting my master's - how did that happen?
(x) Made prank phone calls - i imagine i did this when i was kid - pre caller id days - but it sure was a long time ago.
( ) Laughed until some kind of beverage came out of your nose
(x) Caught a snowflake on your tongue - well, i've tried to plenty, but i can't say i was totally successful - that i can remember.
(x) Danced in the rain - i love the rain! but never formally danced with a partner - just solo danced. it would be a dream. where's that jesse?
( ) Written a letter to Santa Claus
( ) Been kissed under the mistletoe
( ) Watched the sunrise with someone you care about
(x) Blown bubbles
(x) Gone ice-skating

It's Missouri Jon once again - love your "travelogue"... if I did one it would begin at some point in time and space, and would be hundreds of pages long, and would never end... sort of like my existence... when I'm always thinking, "are we there yet???"
and damn, if anyone would ever read it...

anyhoo, I will be in SLC in August (13-17th) so I hope to see many of whoever's left there... it could be like the Sex and the City girls getting together once again, or better yet, the Led Zeppelin reunion movie...!

by the way, be sure to skip the Indiana Jones movie, but do NOT, by any MEANS miss the Batman movie this summer...

hasta entonces...
