    quite an impressive list. i have 209 on mine. I believe i will steal a few of yours. Having your interests in one column alphabetically makes the list look wholistic and impressive. However, I have a hard time reading more than 20 at a time. I suggest you break them into categories and run them paragraph style with commas. Much easier to read. Humans (in our society) like to read large gobs of text left to right in paragraph style instead of a long list.

  2. Flower delivery London October 28, 2006 at 11:20 am #

    What a long list. Reading through it all will leave me with a debilitating ennui. So I’ll make my own and see if you can read it 🙂

    moose, breaking it out into categories makes it too much like your typical myspace/friendster list. Having them alphabetical makes it more… i dunno… interesting to have them all mashed together. I added line breaks between letters to make it a little easier to read.

    I miss A&W Drive-Ins!

    How could I not have coins on this list! Man. Looking at coins is the best. In fact it’s so much fun, let’s make it two items –coins –looking at change in my pocket I’m making this two items, because there’s a distinct difference between the two. “Coins” is like the history and trivia of coins. And the “looking at change in my pocket” is what I often do when I’m standing around. Man, I should make a blog post about looking at coins.

    I like adding stuff to this list. It’s neat to remember things that I like. And plus it makes for a neat record of things that I discover that I like. So let’s add this one to the list: –Keeping track of my favorite things Or should I call it: –Listing my favorite things One entails the keeping aspect of it. The other focuses on the listing aspect. The more meaning is in the keeping. But when it’s in alphabetical list, the “listing” falls into order better. Oh man. What to do. What to do. Ah. Let’s go with keeping. Oh another thing. Even though I have “classification” on this list. Let’s drop in: –ontololgy
