Listography: the ultimate journal for list makers and my newest blog feature - #101

While shopping on the Cape, I happened upon this new series of journals called Listography: Your Life in Lists. My first thought was what a great gift for my mother-in-law, the queen of list making. My second thought was that this is perfect for those of us with an aversion to keeping What a fantastic way to chronicle and share bits of my life in an easy to digest format (the made for TV version will come much later).

I bought these two copies. I need to buy more...and for many different people. [friends/family spoiler alert: this is your next gift.]. Since I blog, I decided that I'd add my listography as a blog feature. These will be evolving as I know I'll come back and add to the lists. After all, part of the reason I have to make lists is because of my forgetfulness. So, join in the fun...leave me comments with your own additions to each listography post. Today's list:

What were your favorite childhood shows?

Gilligan's Island - (I liked Mary Ann)
The Brady Bunch - (found Jan disturbing)
HR Puff and Stuff
Captain Kangaroo - (loved Mr. Green Jeans)
Sesame Street - (all time favorite)
Electric Company
The Banana Splits
The Partridge Family
The Monkees - (Micky Dolenz was my fav)
Land of the Lost - (spent countless hours pretending to be in the L of the L) a 'tween...
The Twilight Zone
Fantasy Island
Charlies Angels
Love Boat
Love American Style
Carol Burnett

  1. What a great idea! It makes a great keepssake, too!

  2. This is a very good idea. I've always liked lists as a way to stimulate thought, trigger memories or come up with new plans.

  3. What a great idea and great lists! So fun. You can learn a lot about a person from the lists they keep!

    I'm going to have to get my hands on one of these!

  4. Great idea. Have you seen the Wreck Me Journal? I've been working on it's "destruction" for weeks! It's great fun.
