So, I totally stole this idea from How Could You Not? I am not original in any sort of way...but that's okay. I don't mind using ideas from other people. Isn't that what the blogging and the internet is all about...sharing information and ideas for others to use. But, anyhow!

Therefore, to celebrate 250 posts to my blog, I thought I would share 250 random facts about me. I know, it's totally vain, but I've discussed my vainness (is that even a word) on here before. Read only if you wish to really know random things and if you are okay with learning t.m.i. about me!

Woot! 250!
