Tagging a certain number of blogs is like picking a team on the playground when you were a kid: who is the kid that gets picked last? or worse yet, who doesn't get picked at all? So, to relieve you of the angst of not seeing your blog listed here: if you've read this far down into this post, consider yourself tagged and join the fun.
