So when one is tagged, the deal is … at least amongst compulsive bloggers… is that you must answer 101 questions about yourself… being honest, but also not putting the reader to sleep or cause them to become nauseous over your self indulgent, sappy musings.  I have likely utterly failed already on both counts as I am a poor liar and a total bore…. regardless, here it be.
