Good God there's only three days left...

Okay so here's the deal. I got all caught up in moving into the new house, and the subsequent parties, messing and general camaraderie that goes with that (Beerpong rocks by the way), so I still haven't finished The List. This is vexing, since I've got three days till the start of the Project (that's right, I said vexing, it's a real word, and I'll use it even if you are judging me). So I came up with a cunning plan... Baldrick Style... The Project starts on Wednesday, my 26th birthday, as planned, and I fill in the other 98 Things I need before I run out of days to do them in. This way, I still get to beg for your help, and I get to do fun stuff. Who loses? Nobody. Except society.

So, the problem now, if you want to call it that, is that I don't know what to start off with. I was going to go with smashing a guitar, or maybe a horse racing meet, but I'm open to all manner of suggestions... wink wink. See what I did? I made a sexy joke...

Updates on the progress of The Project starts officially this Wednesday. hands up if you're excited about it...
