Hi Margo

I was cursing you on my way to work yesterday morning after I'd stayed up until 3:00 AM finishing TM. Loved it, of course - am I mistaken in guessing that you quite enjoy wielding the author's almighty dominion? Smite here, bless there, spread a bit of wealth thataway, a little misfortune thisaway ... Not that I would blame you for enjoying it. I found myself envying the sweep and grandeur of your powers.

Do you think I could get some of them for the office?(Just kidding)

Fun "meme" too:

1. Started your own blog
(kept it for about a week before I realised that I didn't need to reveal to the whole world that I'm an old fart with attitude) 2. Slept under the stars. 3. Played in a band. 4. Visited Hawaii. 5. Watched a meteor shower. 6. Given more than you can afford to charity. 7. Been to Disneyland/world. (Mother's Day, 1981 - watching the mothers was more fund than the rides). 8. Climbed a mountain. 9. Held a praying mantis. 10. Sang a solo. 11. Bungee jumped. 12. Visited Paris (very unadventurous item - why not liven it up by making
it "had an affair in Paris"). 13. Watched a lightning storm at sea. 14. Taught yourself an art from scratch. 15. Adopted a child. 16. Had food poisoning. (Beijing, 2003 - not pretty) 17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty. (starting to get a bit US-centric - how about walked around, but not to the top of Uluru). 18. Grown your own vegetables. 19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France. (small - conveniently tea-towel size, in fact) 20. Slept on an overnight train. 21. Had a pillow fight. 22. Hitch hiked. 23. Taken a sick day when you’re not ill. 24. Built a snow fort. 25. Held a lamb (this means a live one, I presume). 26. Gone skinny dipping (Five weeks ago, in the Blue Mountains - location very "Sirens," the participants less so). 27. Run a marathon. 28. Ridden a gondola in Venice. 29. Seen a total eclipse. 30. Watched a sunrise or sunset. 31. Hit a home run (Hmmm ... next we'll be fleeing bulls in Pamplona). 32. Been on a cruise. 33. Seen Niagara Falls in person. 34. Visited the birthplace of your ancestors. 35. Seen an Amish community. 36. Taught yourself a new language (language learning happens when someone is patient, desperate or reimbursed enough to endure your mistakes and mispronunciations. Happily, I've met lots of people like this, and thus acquired a couple of foreign languages). 37. Had enough money to be truly satisfied. 38. Seen the Leaning Tower of Pisa in person. 39. Gone rock climbing. 40. Seen Michelangelo's David in person (it's on the list for 2009). 41. Sung Karaoke. 42. Seen Old Faithful geyser erupt. 43. Bought a stranger a meal in a restaurant. 44. Visited Africa. 45. Walked on a beach by moonlight. 46. Been transported in an ambulance. 47. Had your portrait painted. 48. Gone deep sea fishing. 49. Seen the Sistine chapel in person (they shut it at 1:00 PM on the day I was there). 50. Been to the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris (whole lotta climbing up things here). 51. Gone scuba diving or snorkeling. 52. Kissed in the rain. 53. Played in the mud. 54. Gone to a drive-in theater (US-centric and dated). 55. Been in a movie (but our awful flat in Berlin was in the opening shot of Herr Lehmann). 56. Visited the Great Wall of China 57. Started a business. 58. Taken a martial arts class. 59. Visited Russia. 60. Served at a soup kitchen. 61. Sold Girl Scout cookies. 62. Gone whale watching. 63. Gotten flowers for no reason. 64. Donated blood (bastards won't let me). 65. Gone sky diving. 66. Visited a Nazi Concentration Camp. 67. Bounced a check. 68. Flown in a helicopter. 69. Saved a favorite childhood toy. 70. Visited the Lincoln Memorial. 71. Eaten Caviar. 72.

Sat on a jury (the defendants pleaded guilty, so they sent us home again). 91. Met someone famous. 92. Joined a book club. 93. Lost a loved one. 94. Had a baby. 95. Seen the Alamo in person. 96. Swum in the Great Salt Lake. 97. Been involved in a law suit. 98. Owned a cell phone. 99. Been stung by a bee.
