WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5th, 2011on lists.

So we're taking stock of our goods during our annual inventory, which requires a lot of counting and a lot of lists. (Plus we have daily lists of the "to-do" and "grocery" variety.)

...from "Top 10 Greatest Art Crimes" via listverse.com:
4. Theft: A remarkable fact regarding the 1911 theft of the Mona Lisa is that Pablo Picasso himself was briefly questioned in connection with the missing painting.

...or create your own with the help of our new favorite little journal (like "fruits one can balance on one's head," etc., etc.):
