I like lists. Grocery, projects, swaps, to do. I like being able to tick things off, one by one. Gives me a (false?) sense of accomplishment, I guess.
I guess I'm rubbing off on Rebecca, because here's the list she came up with for us when we went to IKEA last weekend to get some lamps. Not quite sure what the last thing is, but I like the illustration at the end.
I also like lists that other people compile, like AFI 100 or the American Top 40 (Casey Kasem, remember him?), even if I don't always agree with their picks. One of my favorite lists from way back when I was studying for the GRE subject test in Literature was their recommended reading list... but wow, was it daunting! I was originally going to post it here, and highlight the ones I'd read, but that was too depressing, so I found another list from TIME magazine, and a pair of lists (fiction and non-fiction) from the Modern Library. Actually, it's more like two pairs of lists, since there's a reader's choice version, too.
