Berkeley List Slam Friday Night

Listmakers unite at the world's second-ever List Slam this Friday night. A List Slam = a Poetry Slam, but instead of poetry, people read lists. Bring a list to read or share.

Mrs. Dalloway’s

Friday, November 16, 7:30pm
2904 College Avenue
Berkeley, CA

Friday night doubles as the Berkeley release party for To-Do List: From Buying Milk to Finding a Soul Mate, What Our Lists Reveal About Us. I'll read a selection from the book and others will read their lists.

Also on Friday: I'll be on ABC's (channel 7) The View from the Bay talk show between 3:30 and 4 pm talking about to-do lists, unique and shocking lists in the book, and what lists say about us. The segment is supposed to be the lead-in to Oprah! They stream the show live. Watch it online here.

Finally, check out this slideshow of lists from To-Do List on Glamour.com. Of course they chose some of the juiciest ones.

Hi,



I was just wondering if you have ever received a to do list that ended with "Commit Suicide " ?

Talk about an ordered life .

As a longtime keeper of lists, I congratulate you on recognizing how important they are, signifying in many cases who we really are, what our priorities are, and how important it is to "dare to dream," so to speak. Even if we have not accomplished everything on our list, as most of us rarely do, sometimes the act of writing it is significant in itself. And sometimes, I make myself an "easy" list, so I can have the satisfaction of checking off all the items! For example: "brush teeth, watch favorite tv show, talk on phone,...etc." In any case, I wrote a blog entry highlighting your new book (see link below) and wish you all the best. http://musingsbyapple.blogspot.com
