  1. I’ve not done tons of them I have to say. I’d done about five by the time I got to number 23 so I gave up. I did get drunk on champagne last week though . . . in work. Hehehe.

  2. rs27: It’s not terrible at all. Maybe I’m just an over-achiever. Though I didn’t count how many I’d actually done…

    Paula: Drunk at work can be fun!

    Matt: Thanks man!

    NSJ: It WAS really long!!

    Alexa: Haha thanks! I AM a stealth nerd–what can I say?
