    I loved the entire list; it was no problem getting to the end! 🙂 I love lists too. And I am tagging myself, although I think that I will save this list for a few days from now.

    love your list Kelly! I saw Holiday with Laini last weekend at Bridgeport and you know how in the last scene it opens with Kate Winslet and her bro dancing together in the living room and Diaz and jack Black dancing together? I turned to Laini and said, “Well thats a weird ending! the brother and sister are a couple now, weird!” We never saw movies together in Portland when you were here but you can always count on me to make a ridiculous comment somewhere during the flick, or after, or both. But don’t worry ! Mostly I am very quiet! I actually liked the film- a sweet, mindless if predictable fun two hours.

    Great list. And as a list maker myself, I’ll give it a try in the next few days.

    Kelly Rae, you are always interesting but I especially enjoyed reading this list. (my Outback is a 2000 white one – loved that coincidence) And lucky you; all those museums right in your area.
