What that? 100 posts?!

Woah, 100 posts snuck up on me quick! Especially since I usually post just a few times per week and am prone to dry spells, this is fun for me to reach such a milestone.  I’m taking a page from K.E. who once sent me a “100 things about ME” list that I loved. Don’t bother looking for rhyme or reason, there is none.

1. The last fiction book I read was the Life of Pi
