sure.  you can try something like this (note the modification to your
list.  items don't take arguments -- they're tokens, not functions.):

\item Ice cream
\item Fuzzy kittens
\item World peace \label{worldpeace}
\item Fluffy clouds

As you can see by \ref{worldpeace}, I like pipe dreams.

see if this does what you need it to do.  if not, i'll think about it
some more.
