The List

The instructions are as follows:

Copy the list, bold the ones you’ve done (with explanations if needed), share with friends.  I also think if there are ones you’d like to add to the list, you can.  I’m not sure where the list orginated from, but I’m sure there are some additions that would make for pretty awesome stories.
