Get in line, pal


Another list thread, with a few differences...

1. Save your place in line by adding your name to the Next in Line list. When one list is finished - ten items per list - the person at the top of the Next list starts the next list.

2. All lists must contain one item from the previous list as the starter for the new list.

3. When you start a new list, remove your name from the top of the Next list. You may add your name to the bottom of the list.

4. Your name may not appear more than once on the Next list.

First list...

Get your brain started

1. Do a Google search

Should there be a time limit attached? I'd hate to have my name on a list and then let the thread linger for a day when it's my turn and I haven't logged on.

We could put a 24 hour time limit on it. If a list ends, and you're at the top of the list, if you don't start a list within 24 hours, it goes to the next person. How's that sound?
