Bucket List, or, Watch Me Fail at Tagging People Despite the Built-in Instructions

Bucket ListShare
Place an X by all the things you've done and remove the X from the ones you have not, then tag your friends (including me).

And--If you're copying this list from Xuan, you should also delete my comments from the list items.

(To do this, go to “notes” under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, do the list and tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.) If you don't see the Tag people in the upper right hand corner you are in the wrong place.)

Things you have done during your lifetime:
(X ) Gone on a blind date
(X ) Donated Blood

(X ) Serenaded someone --define "serenade". Does it have to be done outside someone's window at night? I sing at people all the time....though annoying jingles left on voice mail might not count as serenading them. Neither do my happy good morning songs I bet.
