* golfed well
* tried one of those ice cream coffee things they serve at Starbucks
* bought store brand peanut butter
* listened to At The Edge, the commercials really creep me out
* sat through a horror movie without covering my eyes or screaming

  2. Hmmm. Some of these are really surprising to me. Like the snowmobile one. Weren't you saying how some kids ride snowmobiles to school in your neck of the woods? Do you have a snowmobile and just never hoped on? For the record, I never rode a snowmobile either. ;)

  7. Ohhhh. This is such a good line of questioning! You are a genius! I'm so caught up in playing Questions that I never thought to play "I Never."

    I repeat, GENIUS.

  9. Some "nevers" I would like to accomplish, like go on a cruise.

    Other "nevers" can stay that way: been arrested, played poker, been divorced.

  10. I'll have to think about this one. It might be a post all its own. However, I recommend Jane Eyre. After you read it, then read The Eyre Affair. Funny.

  13. Let's go to starbucks together some Tues/thurs morning and try one of those drinks. Then I'll take you for a pedicure, since I can't reach my own toenails anymore without getting a cramp, so there will be two things off your list! ;) My birthday is coming up...it would be a great morning out!

    let me know....

  14. I've never ridden in a helicopter - but my husband has.

    I've never gone bridge jumping - but my husband has.

    I've never ridden in a plane that landed on water - but my husband has.

    I've never seen the alps - but my husband has.

  17. I've never been to a Yankees game even though I'm the biggest fan! Hoping to mark that off my list someday soon!

  18. I've never smoked tobacco.

    I've never cross-country skiied (too much work; see "downhill")

    I've never lived with a dog (see: carnivore indoors)

    I've never been to Europe. (Oh, boo-hoo!)

    I've never read anything written by Dickens. (My bad.)

    I've never jumped into clear air from any vehicle or structure, not even on fire, nor have I ever dangled from a cliff.

    I'm really pretty boring. ;)

  19. Never painted your toes??? Funny, in my view that's the most shocking item on your list! My toes never go naked, not even in the dead of winter when I am the only person to see them un-socked.
