NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Lists aren’t only for jotting down things you have to do, they can be used to remember old times.

Lifelong listmaker Lisa Nola has penned Friends Listography (Chronicle Books), a journal of blank lists to be filled out by friends, sort of like an old school slam book.

Random lists include which friends “Remind You Of Certain Animals,” which friends could be which characters from The Breakfast Club, and confessions of embarrassing moments.

Nola, who runs listography.com, says lists are a great way to bring back funny memories.

She recently made her own lists of the songs her parents listened to when she was a kid and of all the crushes she had in elementary school, which made her chuckle.

Nola says the list topics that usually get pens flowing the most are anything about music, like which songs people want played at their funeral and which jams they’d most like to strip to.
