Last Tag of the Year (Promise!)

Jess said on her blog: "I'm not going to tag anybody to do this list, because I'll be able to hear the groans from here! So, instead, if you *think* I would have tagged you for this list (or you would just like to do it), please feel free to do so and let me know so I can come and read.

I remember where I was on the day of Diana's death, too. I know I cried.
