I swear I will not do these things anymore. Between the 25 Random Things About Me that I did three times (here, here, and here) and now this, you have almost 125 tidbits of knowledge about me. And some of you (and you know who you are . . . hint, hint, hint) haven't yet done the 25 Random Things yet.
I'm doing this because my friend Fran of FranIAm blogging fame tagged me on Facebook. I love her and you should too. She writes a thoughtful, insightful blog that always makes me think. And she's witty too.
Here are the rules - post this list on your profile (in Notes) replacing my answers with yours.
Tag 25 people to do the same thing.
If I tagged YOU, it's because I want to know more about YOU!
