Lover of Lists

So, I’m a pretty massive fan of To-Do lists. Any of my friends can assure you I’m the kind of person to write something down that I’ve already done, just for the simple joy of crossing it off. So I figured what a better way to get a blog rolling then with some good ol’ go to lists. At least they’re not to do lists, right?
