Project 365: Day 72 - 100 Things About Me.....

So I saw this post from another blogger a while back and thought it would be a neat thing to work on. Can I come up with 100 details about myself??? Let's see:

1. I like beer. (First thing to come to mind 'cause I'm drinking one right now)
2. I have imaginary conversations with people often.
3. I have imaginary conversations with myself even more.
4. I think this might be because of the beer. (note to self - don't drink and type)

33. I am very impulsive.
34. I cut my own hair.
