100 Things about me the 2007 Edition

  2. I was born in Kansas.
  3. I am the oldest of 3 children.

  5. I have lived in 11 different towns in my life.
  6. This summer I will make that an even dozen.

  23. I admit I allowed myself to be that, and sometimes took pleasure in the attention being the victim got me.
