What have YOU done?

Found this on a friend's blog, and it looked like it'd be fun to do. Which is funny, because I don't usually do these things. Like, you know, tags, or email forwards. I guess I figured I had better post something, since it's been nearly a week, and anything else I would have posted about today would have likely been a rant, and I think I've written enough of those lately. So here you go. Feel free to do one yourself. Just copy and paste, and highlight all the things you've done! :D
