My 100

Recently I have noticed that several people have reached 100 posts on their blog. I never realized that I hit this milestone until they made note of it on their own blogs. Evidently, there is a ‘100 Things’ pseudo-ritual of some sort related. Well, I’m a little behind then (he he, I wish) so, I sat down and tried to think of 100 interesting things about me. I found 100 things, but I don’t know how interesting they are.
