#38 - Keep a plant alive from 'The Auction' from one year to the next. I was SO close but unfortunaley Berry kicked the bucket. Poor lil Berry... he tried so hard! Well, I swear if they have a porthos at the auction this year I'm soooooooooooooooooo getting one becuase I keep those alive.

#21 - Save a part of every paycheque - done.

#94 - Read every day - done! Some days this was definately just the free papers but I did also manage to start 3 books: Summer Sisters by Judy Blume, War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells and The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss

#92 - Learn/Discover something new every day
This did happen of the past 3 weeks but unfortunately for Monday Sept 3/07 - Sunday Sept 23/07 I don't have it recorded. I did learn how to name songs in iTunes, that the side seats on the main floor of the Bader are great but the upstairs ones are obstructed, during the festival they have popcorn (!) at the Elgin, how to use my new computer and that seeing 6 films in 1 day is a little much - even for me.

Wow! Ooteeni! Check out your Jawa!! That is the best!

And woot on your laptop! That is so very cool. Cannes, anyone?

And I'm shedding a tear for Berry. He was only weeks away. That is really too bad. Poor Berry.

And holy moly, the movies you've seen this year! I wonder how many you will have seen total in 2007.

Isn't that jawa great? It's a toy of a coworkers son but I freaked out seeing it yesterday so she said he could keep me company for the day. The eyes light up when you squeeze him :)

I'm so sad about Berry too. It was very close. I'm stumped because I have kept plants alive that long but none that I got at the auction. I think I'll see what they have this year.

OH man! Now I want to know how many movies I've seen in 2007!!! I'll have to check my DB.

Shannon said...

Because I am compulsive and had to check, I've seen 181 films this year so far.

That is just the coolest Shannon, I can't believe you have a jawa with eyes that light up! OMG! I just love it, LOL.

Oh, so sad about Berry Shannon, I'm so sorry for your loss. :(

I saw 3:10 to Yuma too! I really like Christian Bale, I thought he was great.
