List Mania

Okay, so this is old.
But I figure if I posted it before, way back in the way back, nobody will probably remember anyhow. I know I don't.

And admittedly it's just a little begged, borrowed and ... all right, maybe stolen.

But I don't think Unkawill will mind.

Everything bolded - I have done:
