  3. Can I say how cool your list is? Not that anyone needs to know this but I have:
    lived in 400 sq ft, visited Paris, taken a trip with my mom (not yours, but I’m sure she is wonderful!), seen Duran Duran, read the autobiography of Malcolm X, appeared in the thank-you on book sleeves, but not cd-sleeves, i would die happy if i met Johnny Depp, i am trying to raise a wonderful kid, and i would love to be your assistant & would happily accept the keys to your kingdom.
    thx, Robby! that was totally fun. And, became all about me….Sarah

    • Lord – that was meant to read ‘the keys to the castle’ – not kindgom. i should really pay more attention now that i’m going to be your assistant.
