50 Things

I don't always do memes but I have a lot of new friends lately, so here I am...

I've seen this on several journals today and thought I'd join in. I'd love to hear in comments whether there is anything that came as a surprise. Several answers stolen from asecretchord where I copied this from.... looks like I found a brain twin!




Ack! Changed my LJ password and in trying to edit that, lost my edits when I tried to cross post from Dreamwidth! Meep!
