post script-- I did finally tag back all the people who 25-things'd me on Facebook, and in all the pressure to come up with a list that was equal parts self-deprecating humor and dry sharp wit I completely forgot the two most defining aspects of my existence:
1. Sneezes, to me, are like fingernails on a chalkboard. I try to keep my recoiling disgust in check but inside I'm writhing in discomfort.
2. I eat a lot of candy, and my preferences tend toward the kinds targeted at eleven year olds--no artisan dark chocolate truffles for me, thanks. I'll just grab that box of Spree.
So there, I didn't tag you in the original 25, but you got the good ones anyway.
