Alright, Alright

I've been tagged 4 times since this blog started. Well, technically this is both Erik's and my blog, but lets be realistic, I've pretty much kept this going myself. Most recently I was tagged by my mother. Well, I can't ignore that, so to be fair, I went back and did all four of the tags I received. I'm officially done after this, so I would appreciate if no one tagged me again. My brain hurts from doing this.
