Usually I don’t do meme’s and such, but I’ll make an exception for this one since I don’t have a particular topic to blog about today and it happens to be Jan. 11 it seems fitting to post 11 Random Things. However, I won’t tag anyone specifically - if you wish to participate and share the meme feel free (you can let me know in comments with a link and I’ll drop by to read post).
