I’ve been receiving these Facebook entries from friends this past week or so that consist of a list of 25 things we don’t already know about them. They’re really interesting. I’m seeing and learning things that I don’t think some of these folks would bring up in casual conversation. The confessional and personal nature of Facebook seems to let the floodgates open.
In the non-mocking spirit of such a list, here are 25 things about me you may (or not) really want to know, but are being rewarded/punished with as a faithful reader of this blog.
