TheBooBooKitty says If I we ever meet at a noder gathering I will let you drive my convertible. So you can fullfill #3 on your list of things to do.
Chihuahua Grub says (If we ever meet at a noder gathering, i'll show you how to steal TBBK's car.)
NotFabio says Mr.100%, I sail semi-professionally for Naval Academy Sailing Squadron and Annapolis Yacht Club. If you were ever in the area and able to waste two weeks in the summer, maybe we could work something out for #8 on your to do list...
pylon says If you come to Siena, I can take care of #18 from the life list. Siena college has some spare ones sitting around that I have faithfully discharged. Yep, I confirmed the presence of an unattended fire extinguisher here. Although, I probably won't volunteer to get soaked since it's a compressed CO(2) powder/gas thing :o)
pylon says and there's a nearby Dunkin' Donuts which I have frequented at early morning hours. Perhaps you could even knock off #5. :o)
