Great list! Maybe you should start a squirrel cult. ;)

#26: What kind of dance piece do you want to choreograph? Is this a dance you will do or do you want to choreograph it on other dancers? Choreographing was always fun. I'd love to see what you come up with when you do this one.

#30: which drive in? The cottage view? I would totally go, the last time I actually went to the drive in I saw the Land Before time and Sister Act. I can never find anyone who wants to go, the movies there weren't so good most of last season though.

I want to choreograph for other dancers. My dream would be to choreograph something for Mad King Thomas.

Vali-Hi. Cottage View has too many bugs and does only double-features. Vali-Hi still does triple-features!

Wow, I can't believe 3 years have gone by already!

Your list always gets me so excited because I see so many things on it that are so easily crossed off.

Some suggestions before its finished:
#6 and 8 involve fulfilling a certain number of items that won't get accomplished all in one day. Perhaps you need an itemized list afterward track your progress toward fulfilling it.
As for #33, I think you will find this very hard to achieve. The specificity was a good idea but basically what you want to say is "throw out a bunch of junk" and I giving it a number will make it not attainable. Are you really going to count 100 things? Plus, you throw out more than a hundred things every time you clean the litter box. Just saying.

--I can give you restaurant suggestions.
--You could make things off of your list for your friends' presents. Do any of them want a tutu or a cocktail?
--46. you will do without trying. All the weird companies pop out for Fringe. Perhaps considering altering the goal to out-of-state or something.
--I also need to do #66.
--Mpls Community Education offers Ballet and Tap classes this coming quarter. Very inexpensive. Also Swing dancing (to meet a lady...?)
--Sounds like you want to do a lot of cleaning. Cleaning and organizing is my super power. If I can find time, I can assist.

I don't count Fringe shows as way to fulfill #46. That's kind of cheating. I'm planning a trip to St. Cloud to see a show at Pioneer Place and I'm also seeing a Blank Slate production. Both would be first-time (to me) theater companies.

I do plan to itemize 6 & 8 as I go along. (As a matter of fact, I've already done one of each!)

The 100 items thing is from a "100 Items Challenge" that was in the NY Times about a year ago. My rule for counting a "thing" is that it has to be at least as large as my fist. So chucking a paper clip won't count but tossing a broken desk lamp will. It's a decluttering idea. I intend to photograph all 100 items and put them in a big collage.

I keep my eye on St. Paul Community Ed. (I'm not sure I'm allowed to take it in Mpls - other side of the river, you know.) Most of the partner dance classes require registration with a partner. I may go to Zenon though; their ballroom/salsa class does not require a partner.

I'd love help with cleaning and organizing. Last night I went through 2 of my 3 kitchen drawers. One is now completely empty and the other is well-organized.
