25 Random Things

Since joining Facebook, my blogging frequency has dropped considerably. Realizing that, I'm trying to find ways to combine the two platforms and the easiest way I can think of is to post some things both places.

Recently, Jill Helfrich tagged me on Facebook in her note, "25 Random Things." I'll post my response here and on my Facebook page. To find out who I tag, you'll have to check out Facebook. If you haven't joined Facebook yet, you should really consider it - it's a great way to keep in touch with people you don't see very often.

25 Random Things:
Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.
