Holy crap - you actually did it!

I'm impressed. Most people I know get to about 20 and can't think of more. Which is sad when you think about it.

We should easily be able to name 100 things, no matter how small, that are blessings.

Good job Atnevon - I'll work on mine too!!

We all eat, drink, piss, shit, fuck, and die. Someone mind tellin' me the punch line?

I got up to 9, that's about all I could think of. I'm sure I could make 40 if i really tried and stole all of Sanctuary's coffee supplies for the next 5 months.....

Not even worth listing it, but if I get past 50 i'll consider it....
