100th Post!

I can't believe I have come up with 100 different posts already. So let's have some fun. Instead of 100 things about me, here are 100 things I have done. Kinda lame maybe, but oh well. I tried not to overlap from my 100 things about me post, which I'd link if I could since Snavy and BS were kind enough to try to show me how. But I am either too dumb to make it work or my Mac browser and Blogger just don't like each other.
