101 in 1001

Perhaps you've already seen this around the blogosphere, but you haven't seen it here. I figured that I like bands AND wagons, so why not, right?

Starting today I'm going to to try and meet 101 goals in 1001 days. I am not a great goal keeper, so we'll see how this goes. Plus, I have built in a penalty (eek! see #36) for each goal I don't meet so maybe that will keep me motivated.

And if you want to do one too (and help me complete #98), then just let me know and I'll direct you to this site which might help you come up with some goals of your own.
