procrastination

I stole this from Jenni’s blog and made a couple adjustments. Just boldface the items that you HAVE done, and leave the rest normal…. Or do what I did—boldface the items you have done and color purple all the ones you’d really, really like to do someday. And write the words “I think” in parentheses if you’re pretty sure you’ve done it, but you can’t really remember because half your brain cells have gone the way of ___________ (I forget the rest of the cliche).

    No, duhhhhh. #95! Sorry.

    Drive-in movies are great fun in Texas – we take our picnic blankets and snacks, and lay out in front of our cars on a beautiful night. In high school (70s), the local drive-in had a $5/carload price, so we’d take the largest car we could come up with, stack ’em deep inside and pack the trunk! Then we’d watch the movies from the swingsets in front of the theater.

    Oh gosh – I think I may be a redneck… 🙂
