    What a great list! I’m pleased to say I’ve done a substantial number of these things. I shall ponder my own list now…

    Great list, some very specific, some more open. Meet a hero: wonder whether the hero you meet will be one of those you have now (there’s profound for you.)

    This is a totally inspiring list! Anything that covers both owning a vending machine and skinny dipping is pretty rad.

    I’ve done 5 of the least exciting things on here. Most exciting being crying over a novel…which is actually not that exciting considering that I’ve cried while watching Clifford the Big Red Dog.
