---------------------------------------------------------------
Last night, we started this list together. 

 We watched No Country for Old Men and Cars.  NCfOM was great until the end.  Both J and I were REALLY disappointed with the ending - otherwise, the acting was convincing and the basic storyline was intense. 
Cars is always a favorite choice.  It's such a happy Disney Pixar movie.

I am very much looking forward to this list, even though some aspects are really daunting!  I will be sure to blog about each item and keep a link on the Day Zero Page.  Enjoy!!!

Looks like fun, maybe I'll gather motivation to start one. I have my bucket list to transfer :-) plus there's a lot on your list that overlaps mine. We'll converse about those soon! Happy Monday!
