101 in 1001

I keep seeing blogs where people are working on a 101 things in 1001 days list.
My friends and I each made a list at New Years in 2009. I was calculating and realized it should have ended this month!
I found the list, which I had much forgot about but it kind of makes it exciting to see what was actually accomplished!
Bold equals success and gray is comments
