Another thing to add to my "Why Didn't I Think of That?" list.

I am a compulsive list maker and I'm also fascinated by other people's lists. If I find someone's discarded grocery list while I'm shopping, I'll stop what I'm doing and read the whole thing. If I find someone's to-do list in the parking lot at work, I read that ever so personal piece of writing and wonder if they got it all done.

The following blog is all about to-do lists and they're even going to make a book out of it. Why didn't I think of that?

The To-Do List Blog

I think I have listaphobia, I have an inherent fear of writing lists. Probably because if i wrote it down, i would feel obligated to actually do the stuff listed... Can't have that going on!

Hope ya had a happy turkey eatin' day!

You migh be happy to hear the Cats Meow is reopened! I was down in the quarter last weekend and walked past it. Doesn't look any different!

Ooo, I always look at lists I find in my shopping cart! I'm a list maker too, there's always something going next to my mousepad. And the lists a few days before our big TFT events? 8-1/2 x 11 sheets of paper taped across the entire counter, with a great big fat black marker on top of the whole shebang, adding and crossing out items that have to be packed and chores that have to be done.

I love lists, too! Lately I've been trying to come up with my 100 things in 1001 days because it kind of fits into my 3 year timeframe here in England (and my penchant for deadlines).

And then there's John Goddard's famous Life List.

Se7en - Happy Turkey Day to you, too! You know I'm always interested in Cat's Meow news. You know, we wouldn't want it to change too much. ;)

Gnight Girl - I don't know how people get anything done without lists.

Just... - Thanks for those links! Very nice.

Leslie - I knew you'd be a list maker, too. :)

When I walk into WalMart with a list, I lose it within 5 minutes. There must be dozens in that store, I wonder how many of mine you've read.

Peggy - Hahahaah!!
