99 Things - What Have You Done?

I found this list on one of my fav blogs, Dropped Stitches.  Erin gives credit on her blog for finding it on someone else's ... "found this list on Somebody Heal Me by Diana E Lee. Diana is a chronic migraine sufferer and her blog is about updates in migraine treatment, study, etc. Then there was this cool list. I SO had to do it!"
