  1. LOVE number 26, but then I’ve met the man and he is amazing!!


  3. #’s 3 and 16 are dreams of mine, too. What a lovely list.

  4. Awesome list! #26 cracks me up. Getting on NPR was totally one of my dreams too, so you know why I was so excited to be on Science Friday (that it ended up being about SCIENCE is one of my life’s great ironies.)

  5. pps- I can’t believe with a list like this you hated Eat Pray Love.
