This is my 101st posting. Tah-dah!
I was tempted to just leave it at that, but that's not really fair to you, my loyal readers, now is it?
So then I thought, how could I make this post special? I could make it exactly 101 words long, or I could post 101 pictures, or I could make it really introductory.
But I decided that in honour of 101 posts (most of which in some way bitch about shit that bugs me, or people that piss me off), I'm going to turn over a new leaf. For one post.
So, here are 101 of my favourite things. In no particular order (because that would be way too much work).
1) The sound of Patches purring on my pillow.
2) Nurturing my love-hate relationship with The Young and the Restless.

4) When Hubby adds "midget" to the grocery list.
5) Jenny The Bloggess.
