A List of 101

Lest you all think I'm super-egomaniacal, this list is part of a meme for the Alchera Project, which I am particularly fond of. The goal is to make a list of 100 useless facts about yourself. In essence, A 100 Things About Me. Well, I am changing it a little to be 101 Useless Facts About Me That You Would Have Known If You'd Have Read My Blog. How's that for a ridiculous title?
