The winners who will get to determine those 20 pointers will not be selected until the current challenge is over then I will contact them and post tasks as soon as they send them to me. Also additional 25+ pointers may be added as more players complete the challenge.

We did birds this season so no I want animals that actually live in the ocean.

Since you have a private account I can't message you directly about this so hopefully you will see this - you already claimed points for 20.1 with The Loser's Guide to Life and Love- A.E. Cannon so you can't get credit twice.

I was really looking for things that say what you are not what you are not.

Patricia wrote: "How about A Woman of Independent Means because I'm a working professional woman?"
That works.
