30 Before 30

This is the year that I go from being young, fun, and attractive to being old, and bitter, and wrinkly.  To make this transition a little more fun and less depressing I decided to make a list of 30 things I want to do before I turn 30 in November.  I got the idea from my friend Joanna who did this a couple of years ago when she was turning 25.  Some of them are small and easily accomplished, some are things I've never done before and I've always wanted to, and some are going to cost a lot of money.  But I've got to live it up now because as soon as I'm 30 I'm just going to be boring and middle-aged!

so fun - but really? 30 is bitter and wrinkly and old? Yikes - I didn't realize that's where I had been living for the past 6 years.

Nice, Jamie.
But are there any drive-in theaters left??

Wow, Jamie-- you are ambitious! 500 batches is a lot of batches. Let us know if you accomplish your skinny dipping and if any cops show up.
