you really can't curl your tongue??? I can't eat menudo's gross. Just reading the rest of your lists, I can see we don't have everything in common. viva la difference!!

I really like this meme and I see we share quite a few things in common.

I had fun reading your lists because we share so many. I forgot about the pots--I tried in my 20's and would like to try again. Love Anne Lamott and say the 'f' word way too much. Sigh. And those things you do now are so admirable.
Happy Wednesday!

I liked reading your first list. I would like to see Paris again! I was only there for 3 days. And, I went to Niagara Falls last week! LOL

I would also like to write a book. Or at least publish one with my beadwork... someday! :D
