"The List"

This is part of why I love NaComLeavMo (feeling too lazy to type links, go to the sidebar if you don't know what I'm on about)
Not only do I love getting comments (and I hope some of you will hang around as promised!), but I read lots of cool posts.

This one is stolen from Our Journey to Sophie.
