101 / 1001

I began drafting this list, a la triplux, inspired by woodwitch, on July 11, 2006. I will begin to cross things off on July 15, 2006, and I will finish on April 11, 2009. I thought it would be nifty to have two elevens, and a nine reflecting that six.

Standard rules apply; I will complete each item to the best of my ability, but if anything is disqualified for some reason, I can replace it with a similar item from my possible extras at the bottom of the list, which I will continue to develop as time goes on. Any time span or number mentioned implies a prepended “at least as long as”, or “at least the number of”.

Some of the items, you may notice, are private – so unless you think I’m likely to tell you what they are, you’re just out of luck on those accounts. I’ve gotta have some mystery in my life! ;}
