You know what I think is funny? That you say being in the news counts as being in a movie, but doesn't count as being on the news as an expert. You're so weird.

Bientje said...

Hello Christine,
This is not the first time I come reading here... In fact, you poked my curiosity several times with your witty comments on my sister's blog. Yes, I'm Jientje's little sister an I doubled up with laughter reading your comms on the Trinny and Suzannah story! So recognisable those hubbies! And those situations! Shopping with my husband is a nightmare! He has it all in one hour and even manages to squeeze in coffee and a pancake in that same hour! Horrible!
So long!

jientje said...

Hehehehe, I see you've met my sister!
There's a lot on that list that I have done already - want to do - would rather die than do that - can't remember having done that! #1 would be one of them!

Margaret said...

I will do this blog for you, Chris, but I did post a new blog. :)

Avaelyn said...


Just kidding. You could have sold a painting for $200? What were you thinking?! Actually, if it was my first, I may not have either.

Sandy C. said...

Wow! You've covered quite a bit on this list :) That is very cool about the news and them replaying it.
That's amazing you saved a drowning boy. You really are a super hero ;) I loved this list...I may have to steal it one day for a post!

Eve said...

Great list. I don't think I've done as many things as you. I've done mostly different things than you. Someday, when I'm at a loss, I'll post this on my blog. Then you can see just how boring I really am.

Christine said...

Eve: You are defiantly not boring. Do the post and highlight any thing that comes close! Hehehe!
Becky: I was on the news as a whistle blower not an expert.
Bientje: That is hilarious!
Jientje: I would love to be there when you buy all the drinks
Margaret: I am going to go and read your post right now!
Sandy: looking forward to your rendition of this list :)
