Listy List: Things I've Done

I love lists. They lead to ideas.

Alicia did this one over at her blog. I've done the things in bold. If you want to play, copy the list, bold what you've done, and let somebody know you've posted. (Oh, and delete my comments!) This got me thinking to things I wanted to add...

I liked "Played in mud" best.
Would like to do more of that!
A fun game and a terrific way to avoid me getting back to my editing..........Hm.......

Jennifer Thermes said...

Ah yes, always lots of creative ways to procrastinate! ;-)

Alicia Padrón said...

You know? I have not played in the mud! What does that say of me?? Boring? no fun at all? hyper clean? LOL! haha, don't know. But I should play in the mud!

I think I'll do that, right after kissing hubby in the rain.. haven't done that one either! ;o)

This was fun Jen! I see you have not sang Karaoke... ohh.. we have to get together girl! Hee, hee.. :o)

Jennifer Thermes said...

Yeah-- I think I'd be okay at karaoke... you should hear me when I'm hollering along to Juanes or Julieta Venegas! ;-)

Now go get muddy, Alicia. Would a mud treatment at a spa count??

Alicia Padrón said...

Oh, c'mon Jen, together!

tengo la camisa negra
por que negra tengo el alma,
yo por ti perdi la calma y casi pierdo hasta mi cama
cama.. cama.. cama..."

Hahaha! That was fun ;o)

A mud spa treatment, now you are talking!

Jennifer Thermes said...

Jaja, Alicia-- me hagas reír!

Y vayamos al spa, okay? (O es "vamanos?"... no sé...) :-)

Alicia Padrón said...

"Vayamos" está bien dicho. Tambien puedes decir simplemente "vamos" :o)

Ok, I'm grabbing my purse as we speak...! ;o)

Jennifer Thermes said...

Ah, sí, "vamos." Lo pensaba después de mi "post!" ;-)
