Getting To Know All About You (Or, Me)

Another wacky Facebook data mining experiment: If you've been tagged or you are reading this, you have the honor of copying all these goofy questions, writing your own response, and tagging 25 other victims. You have to tag me so really you just need 24 more people. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you - but not in a creepy stalker kind of way.


To do this, go to “notes” under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your title as "Getting to know each other!", tag 25 people including me (tagging is done in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.


CATHY'S DISCLAIMER: Please don't feel obligated on my account. I've gotten this from a few people so I figured, okay, why not? Really, I'm not sure these are the questions to ask if you want to get to know me. But for now, they will have to do...
