This is my hundredth blog post. To commemorate, I thought I'd share some highlights of the past 100 posts.
In February, I had my first emo-ish introspective semi-rant. As far as I know, nobody bothered to read it, because, at that point, I had no readers.
Until.....Catering, written a few days after my 16th birthday, when Vicky first became a regular reader, at the time, my only reader. My birthday also marked when I began posting daily. Soon thereafter, I got my permit and began terrorizing the roads. I was also terrorized by high schoolers who lacked physical contact boundaries.
Then, in May, two important events occurred. Firstly, Mario became a regular character, and Nyx and Gretchen joined the club, with Gretch even starting her own blog. I also shared both dirty jokes and nerdy jokes. We also discovered both the Debrahs and the Jillians of cyberspace. We also learned about tampons and my subconscious.
It has been, to say the least, a very eventful 100 posts.

NOW, just for kicks, I looked up 100 random questions. I'm going to post the questions here, then answer them in a comment.

Oh gosh...I think that the jokes about the Oregon trail video game would get old realllllllyyyy quick, and then you'd just be stuck in Oregon (actually, it could be really beautiful there, I have no clue) ...give me your opinion on this though, which alternate name for Hannah Montana is best? it does relate to Oregon...

Morgan Oregon (pronounced, moragin oragin)
Alexis Texas
or Elaine Maine...???
I know, they're all pretty great!

In other news, my mom and Hiemlech/mini coop saw Star Trek and DIDN'T like it?!?! I know, and they were like, "how could you ever recommend that movie?!?" BUT, I stood by my beliefs and stood up for Star Trek...I still think it was great...

One of my friends spent a good amount of time brainstorming these in eighth grade when she wanted to be the next Hannah Montana.

and WHAT??? Star Trek was AWESOME. My parents loved it, anyways.

lysander and demetrius (boy on my bus) are trying to get a group together to go see star trek in imax...

startrek in imax sounds like it would be AMAZING, in my personal opinion
