Holy Crap we are at 100!

We have reached a moment people.  A moment that I was not expecting and feel slightly unprepared for today.  This is my 100th post.  I know, I can't believe it either!  It's so big to me that I it gets a big picture...I'm just saying.  I have a lot to say (obviously) but I didn't think anyone would care...apparently 35 of you do enough to subscribe and read my random rants on an inconsistent basis.  SOOOOO, in light of my 100th post, here are 50 things about me that you may or may not know and may or may not care to know...broken up into sub-categories because that's how we roll around here.  (I was going to have some profound reason for picking 50 but really it's just because I couldn't think of any more)  Enjoy and have a Happy Easter!
