Well, thanks to Daryl Mendelson and Debi Thomas for asking me to write 10 random things about myself, I am nearly halfway
done with this project...
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.
(To do this, go to "notes" under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your
25 random things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.)
