Wow. 17 out of 101. That's depressing. I should get busy. Or stop doing these reviews.


  1. I need to make a list like this. I don't think "wear false eyelashes" will be on my list, unless I just do something really crazy.

    How do you survive without a cast iron pan???

  2. It's great. It helps me focus on the things I need to do. You should google to help you make the list. It's hilarious/disturbing what some people put on their lists.

    And I don't know I've lived without a cast iron skillet either. It's shameful really.
