25 Random Things

This is a facebook thing going around, so I thought I'd jump start and post here too before it starts going around on myspace and email too...

Here are the rules - post this list on your profile (in Notes) with 25 random things about you. Tag friends you would like to know more about.

I keep getting tagged for this, so I guess I will participate!
