I wish I could do the last one... I wish I could believe I am good enough as I am so I didn't have to measure myself and get my so very lacking self-image through what I believe is other people's standards. Oh well, social phobia in a nutshell. :)


I miss writing and receiving real life letters. I got boxes full of them still :-D

I do try and write one every so often, to friends far away. I still have boxes, too :) It's always such a thrill getting a real letter!

It's always such a thrill getting a real letter!

Especially if accompanied by a jar of Vegemite, eller hur?

Even then! :P

From one listy~listerson to another

I do like this list idea. Some of the bits are so kewl, like not having regrets and not worrying over what other people think of you. I especially like not vacuuming up cat hair.

Three down and two up need some serious alteration though. lol.
I may have to make my own version of this list. Thanks for the idea Liz. And thanks for the list.

Re: From one listy~listerson to another

I completely agree with you!! I have started writing letters once a month to various friends (usually while I'm waiting at Karin's karate class and it's raining so I don't want to walk) and it's a lot of fun.

Re: From one listy~listerson to another

I keep trying to get myself to sit down and write letters too. I write "correspond" on my "To Do" list with regularity, but I seldom get past adrressing and stamping the envelpoes. Now I have a kazillion of those envelopes that I need to put one cent stamps on.

Post cards I'm better at. They are do~able, so recently I have been focusing on those. And I love postcard shopping.

I still get the Sunday paper for the coupons, but I'm ashamed to admit - I rarely ever read it!

I'd like to have a big, fat, beautiful, bound dictionary in my library some day for instant, non-digital reference.

I went through a not-watching movie phase but I decided I had to make time for it. I just love a good film.

I don't play boardgames nearly as much as I like. Clearly you're the Scrabulous champion, but what else do you play?

Nothing exciting :) games, Spider Solitaire, Pandora's box...that sort of thing.


Oh, some of those expired things I still do (write letters: I write one each day to my best friend and my paternal grandmother)--and I just fell in love with Polaroid. But I see one thing on your list that I know I really, really need to do, and that's to no longer worry what other people think of me. A very brave thing, indeed.


Love this list. Especially: "have regrets" and "vacuum cat hair" both are equally useless. :) xo~!
