Life is What Happens When Your Busy Making Other Plans

3. See my name in the ending credits of a movie.

4. Live in a European country for a few months.

6. Be able to and donate a year's salary to charity.

Wow, what an INCREDIBLE list!

And I'll help you out with Numbers 27 and 37. Heck, I'd even be up for seeing U2 in the States.

We should hit up a DMB tour! He just released "Stand Up", so he'll be going on tour before the year's over.
