  5. So, I definitely remember doing this, because my best friend from high school and I did it together, when she was visiting me at school on spring break, but I don’t remember tagging anyone to do it or anything, so when this post popped up in my RSS feed, I suddenly felt famous. So, yay to you doing it.

    Also, I’m going to go ahead and say that I’m more than a little sad about ysmarko going offline. I’ve definitely gleaned some valuable knowledge from your blog over the past few years of reading it, but I definitely understand the need to put your family first. So, double yay to you for getting your priorities in order.
