25 Things About Dave

One of the current trends, buzz, or viral happenings lately at all the social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook is the “25 Things About Me” tag.

Your friends write 25 things about themselves and “tag” you to do the same. Normally, I don’t join a lot of the “apps” and tags at these sites, but I found this one interesting because I could talk about myself AND I learned some things about my friends.

Here’s my version of the “tag” as it was reproduced at “My Face.”

I was tagged by Saul Colt and Mark Largent to share 25 random things about me. Normally, I don’t do this stuff or take the silly surveys on MySpace, but maybe this’ll be interesting to someboby

Rules: 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.)
