If you’re going to steal, be honest

That is my mantra of the day, and it is the reason that I’m admitting that I stole this list from Grannymar. I’m not a big one for email forwards, but I thought I’d give this a go here where it can just sit and not bother people who choose not to be bothered with it.

The idea was to:-

Hit forward and place an X by all the things you’ve done,
remove the x from the ones you have not, and send it to your friends. So being a good sport, I am prepared to share it with all of you:

This is your life:

  • (x) Shot a gun (not very well…)
  • ( ) Gone on a blind date.
  • (x) Skipped school (and generally got caught)
  • (x) Watched someone die (too many, and some too recently)
  • Visited any of the following:
  • (x) Europe (well, duh)
  • (x) Africa (Egypt)
  • (x) Asia (Malaysia)

  • ( ) Antarctica
  • (x) Canada (quality skiing in Banff)
  • (x) North America (New York, the south west and Colorado)
  • ( ) South America
  • (x) Flown on a plane (a great many times, but not yet enough that I’m bored of it)

  • (x) Made prank phone calls (the fun that only the Scouts can bring, eh…)
