to-do list

via kightp, who says:
The instructions say: Bold the ones you've done, add three you've done, and two you want to. I'll add italicize the ones you haven't done but want to, just to make things more interesting.
And I'll add "underline the ones you haven't done and don't want to, and strikethrough the ones you have done and wish you hadn't."
