Talky Tuesday: 101 in 1001

As I mentioned back in April, I finished my third 101 in 1001 list in March. I spent a few months thinking about my next list and finished it up in time for my birthday. I like to start on/a little after my birthday, just because I never got over a very childish obsession with birthdays.

The new list is after the cut, and also tacked up here.

My last list was noteworthy for being in progress when The Election happened. (And also for being the first one where I lived in the same place for the entire list.) This list will be noteworthy for carrying me through to the end of the current presidential term. Insert all the jokes here about the 2020 election and 20/20 vision and etc.

In a way, that's reassuring. I felt like my first three lists really flew by, so maybe this one will, too.
