MAKING LISTS

It seems that almost everywhere I have visited today, people have been making lists. Not one to be left out of the latest craze ( not by my choice anyway), I figure I will jump on the latest bandwagon and post a list of my own!! The only problem is I don't know what to make my list about. I have seen lists of gratitude, which I think is not only cool, but very important to all of us in recovery. I have seen lists of stuff about a person. One guy, I think dAAve, made a list containing various facts about himself, I think he based the number on how old he was. On another site I saw a kind of music 'list', (well it might not really have been a list, but kind of was, so I will include it in my examples, just deal OK). Anyway, she had asked questions about what kinds of music people associated with different activities, Mackey's post I think. On jobthingy's Blog the other day, she had posted a list of ten questions too. Stuff like "What is under your bed?", hmmm, interesting! On another site the Blogger had asked his reader to ask him questions, I guess he was having a slow Blog day!

Well as usual, my intentions were good. I like the idea of making lists, I do it in my everyday life. If I am going to the store, I will write a list of things I need to buy. On paydays, I will make a list of bills that need to be paid. At Christmas or birthdays, I often jot down ideas of gifts to get for people. So yeah, I am all about the list thing, but having sat down at my computer, I have drawn a blank. I just dunno what to list for you. I remember once when I was in treatment (for anorexia/bulimia), my shrink told me to make a list of ten things I liked about me!!! Well that was a lesson in futility, I was not having a great week at the time, and if he would have asked me to walk to China instead I gladly would have complied. A list of stuff about me???Not just any stuff, stuff I liked... cruel and unusual punishment I thought!

So yeah, I like the idea, but have no idea what to list, any suggestions? Keep it clean though, occasionally Devilteen honours me by actually reading my Blog! Yes I have proof, she has even commented a time or two! Well on that happy note, I think I'll sign off for the night. Don't grovel for me to stay, it is really not your finest moment! But hey, if I see any cool suggestions in my 'comments', I will surely be back...Good night all!

I like to read lists about idiosyncrasies. Quirky things. It's always interesting to see what weird things you have in common with people. :)

You did make a list! Of lists that other bloggers had... a metalist, if you will.

At last a photo. That's a start.

The one that's been flying around (I got tagged by Dorky Dad last week) is Six Weird Things That Have Happened to You. I'll bet you could come up with some good stuff!

Ha. Everyone else is being nice. You're going to dislike my suggestion. I think you *should* make a list of 10 things you like about you. You can do it...no, it might not be easy. But you can do it.

Hey, neato!! I came here just now to copy your blog address to tag you for a list I was just tagged with - using the alphabet! So I'll still tag you now since I know the list things are so "in". I didn't know I was being so trendy...
