All Lists, All the Time: Random Lists of Stuff
PAGE ONE
November 2005

Timely as always, Bobby. Tard.

Y’all should be able to guess by now that I have a bit of a mania for list-making. It’s the Virgo Rising thing. I have lists in notebooks, lists on scratch paper, lists in neat word files on my computer, and lists crammed in bags where I’ll never find them and will merely list anew.

So, inspired by one of the chat threads at one of the post-Fametracker places, here’re some of my random lists of random stuff. Just ‘cos!
