    Hey, I made it through! (I feel sorry for me too. 🙂 Actually, I’m a very curious person, so would probably read any of these “however many facts about myself” posts that were out there — even of people I’ve never heard of and would never hear of again. Yeah, I’m weird that way.

    That’s cool that you sent wedding invites to celebrities — I would have *never* thought of that!
