Tag - I'm It?

I saw this thing making the rounds on some of my friends' blogs, and knew it would get to me eventually. And it did. I need to make it clear up front that I don't mind doing this at all -- I take it for the fun and harmless thing it is. But lately I've been finding myself completely without anything to say. I can't explain it, and I'm not even sure I understand what's happening. I think it's just the season in my life that I'm currently in, and so I'm having to push myself to complete all these answers. I hope I don't come across as mean or grumpy about this, because that's not really how I feel at all. Sometimes written words just don't properly convey subtle underlying elements like sarcasm and such.
