  4. Love it. (Was that 100 or are you doing installments? Or will that just about do it?)

    You've been prolific as of late. I started to say, I enjoyed the post about your cousin. But enjoyed is the wrong adjective.

    Are you going to BlogHer?

    I'm going to make a mighty list.

  5. I've been working on that list for a couple of weeks, and I think that's it, although it certainly is open to editing.

    One really great thing I realized while writing it was that I've done some REALLY cool stuff in my life so far. It was a good reminder.
