In 2008, I will attempt to start blogging again regularly. Really. And to get started, I'm going to do a questionnaire proposed by sundry, then done by Babs and my sistah and Steph, to name a also seems like a really appropriate way to close out 2007, which was a really big year for me :) So, I present to you:
