This is a copy of the note I wrote on facebook. It's much easier to link to this page than the facebook page, so I thought I'd post it. The instructions were to list 25 random things about yourself. It's kinda fun.
1. I will see "Phantom of the Opera" at the Kansas City Music Hall in 70 days, 19 hours, 17 minutes, and 18 seconds.
2. I wish I had more time to play the piano.
3. I spent nearly two months of this past summer in Alaska.
4. I have been known to take over 800 pictures in a very short time--say, 2 hours.
5. My favorite movie(s) of all time is Anne of Green Gables.
6. I love to read, and wish I had more time for it.
7. I will never go white water rafting---scares me to death.
