101 Things About Me

All right, there has been pressure from those not to be named (yes, there has been more than 1 person) asking for an entry already. As a first real post, I'm using an idea I've seen in several blogs as a "get to know you" dealie. Hopefully it will satiate all of you for now. ;) Tho I am playing the waiting for labour to start game, so I may find myself on here more in the coming days. THEN you'll be sorry you asked me to post to begin with.
