As it turns out, putting together a list of 100 things to do before I leave the earth is no small feat. I had to cut my losses at 75 - which seemed a satisfactory, large-enough number - and besides, I'm working really hard this year on not sweating the small stuff. So 75 it is, and at 75 it shall remain.
