I thought this was a fun idea, so I stole it from you! :)

Disneyland is in Cali! Disneyworld is in Florida! :)

I always get those two mixed up!!

Money Funk said...

Who was the famous person?

And I bet watching a lightening storm at sea would be awesome and scary!

What a fascinating list!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi there-fabulous list, some great ideas!

Northern Living Allowance said...

Hi Money Funk - Now you've asked me and now I can't actually think of who I've met. I used to "hang out" at the band entrances during the crazy '80's with my best girlfriend and we got autographs from the Thompson Twins, The Spoons, Frankie Goes to Hollywood...does that count as "met?" :P

Hi SharonRose - thanks! It was fun!

C - The Asian Pear said...

I stole it from Canadian Saver too. :)

Thanks for commenting & adding me to your blogroll. If you don't mind, I'm adding yours to mine too. :)

Canadian Saver said...

I could never remember DisneyLAND and DisneyWORLD either til a teacher told us that Disneyland is in California (Land comes before World in alphabetical order and California comes before Florida...). It's the only way I can ever remember.

Great list, you've been to some neat places!

Northern Living Allowance said...

Hi Asian Pear - thanks and of course you can add me to your blogroll.

Hi CS - Clever! I'm going to have to try and remember that. That's a good way to do it.
