Last Friday LOLMolly tagged a bunch of us on her Facebook to write 25 things about ourselves. It’s Monday Tuesday, and people are still continuing to share! I read every one of my friend’s lists and decided to share, 25 – well a little more than 25 things I learned about them.

  1. I had so much fun reading this! I don’t know half these people but I laughed some, smiled and even wished I knew some of these people personally they seemed that interesting. : ) I guess this is from your list of 25 things you did on Facebook. I didn’t fill mine out because I had already done mine about a month before you asked me to and I didn’t want to bore anyone reaing my 25 AGAIN! lol


  2. I’m still on the fence about joining this meme. I love your list, Mona, just the same. For me it’s not “what you don’t know about me” but rather “what do I want you to know about me”. In 54 years there have been more than a few experiences I’m not sure I could share comfortably, not knowing who’s reading it.

    I’ll give it some more thought and see what happens.

  3. Jack – I am looking forward to it. :) Share as much as you want or don’t want, no pressure! Though please note, I love interacting with you on FriendFeed!

  4. Mona,

    You are THE awesome.

    Not only cataloging all of these lists but extracting their essence to include your post.

    Thanks so much for that! I’m bookmarking this post.

  5. …haha! Thanks Mona; was a pleasure to read so many other “facts” too. I really like that you have collected so many here so I can learn a bit more of those I missed.

    @Charlie – proof is in the pudding! Let’s see it. :)

    Thank you.

  6. Thanks again for this list, Mona. It’s been great to learn so much about fellow friendfeeders. We are an interesting crew, that’s for sure!

  7. You guys – I loved reading everyone’s and compiling this list. I still have a BUNCH more to add, but glad that everyone’s enjoying it as much as me. Thanks for the comments and hopefully you found someone new to sub to! :)

    @Parth – that may possibly be the sexiest thing someone’s said to me. Wow – flattery will get you everywhere. ;)
