Hello there bandwagon

Hello there, bandwagon. Mind if I ride on ya?

No, I am not finally going to try to shove my behind in skinny jeans or rock a pair of orange crocs. (oooo...I feel a post coming on about sensible shoes). I created a 101 in 1001 list. On the one hand it seems kind of silly because it's anti any real effective goal setting "principles." But it's fun so I've filled it with mostly frivolous things. So far, I only have 75 things on my list, but I figure it's better to it over a few weeks rather than a day or two, so for now, they'll stay blank. I'm leaving work goals off this list. So here it is (so far):


1. Invest in matching hangers.
2. Sell or rent our house in Richardson.
