My 100th Post...So you think you know me?

We interrupt our regular blogging to bring you....(cue drumroll and bugle fanfare please) my 100th post! I have discovered that many bloggers celebrate this monumental occasion by a special post. 100 Things About Me. I really gave it some thought as to whether I wanted to do it or not. It doesn't seem very humble. A little self-serving perhaps? Or just totally weird. I wasn't sure about it. Then I started wondering if I could actually come up with 100 things about me. And I did. Kind of. And I'll be honest, it was even harder than I thought it was gonna' be. Anyway, here it goes. 100 Things About Me.
