95 Things I Like

I'd considered compiling a list of 100 Things About Me, as it is seems to be S.O.P. for most bloggers. But you know what? That's way hard. And, to come up with 100 things, I think I'd need to have some stuff up I'd rather leave off the interweb, thankyewverymuch. So I thought I'd make a list of 100 things I like, or that make me happy. And it took me a couple months but I came up with ninety-five. Yes, it's not 100. Consider it Amish. Or a clever reference to the 95 Theses. Whatever.
