a) All very true, couldn't agree more!<br />
<br />
b) Are you glad you can now make lists in comment boxes? I am!<br />
<br />
c) I take it you're not odd like I am, in that I always try to make my lists have a certain number of items. 3. 5. 10....

i keep small notebooks (3"x5", spiral bound with perforated edges) EVERY where; bedside table, kitchen, purse, table in living room, desk, laundry room. i write things down immediately as i think of them. each day i go through every notebook making a master list of things to do. each week i do the same but for a grocery list. sure does ease the short term memory loss and as you said ... there's a certain satisfaction and sense of achievement when you put a line through a task or better yet when you're able to throw the entire list out due to completion!
