my 101 in 1001 days

I have 1001 days to complete 101 tasks. So, I have until Monday, June 20th, 2011 to complete all these things!

Some things should probably be a little more specific than others and are difficult to measure, but such is life. If there are still spaces open, they will surely stay that way for a short time. I also have yet to pin down the consequences for not finishing a task, but it will probably be donating $5 per task to a worthy cause.
