100 things about me

Well, I'm going way off as far as blog etiquette goes, but I figured this was probably the best way to get me into this whole blogging thing. I love to hear about other people's lives, but have a hard time thinking people are going to want to hear about mine. However, if you do have any interest in hearing about my life... instead of having to wait until my 100th post to hear all this, you're going to get it on my third! (well, only barely third, since I still haven't even figured out how to get pictures on here).
