I’m not one of those people who would jump into a volcano if everyone else jumped into it, but I was asked by Impulsive Buy fanatic, Mellie from Golly Blog Howdy to do this meme, which seems to be really popular right now in the blogosphere.

At first, I didn’t want to do it, but it’s the giving season, Mellie is one of the Impulsive Buy’s biggest fans, and Mellie said it would be like me doing a product review on myself.

So here I am, jumping into a volcano…
