Y'all remember how back in 2008 there was a fad going around on the old facebook where people would write a note of 25 random things about themselves? It was quite the craze. So big, that Us Magazine, my favorite of the tabloids, instated a regular section called "25 Facts you don't know about me" and every week they have a celebrity list 25 facts that, shockingly, we don't know about them.
It is a favorite of mine when I flip through the magazine. I love to see what I have in common with the celebs. Alternately, I love to see how random some of them are, and what freaks others are.
The point is, a few weeks (months?) ago a friend of mine Posted on her blog her 25 random facts and I was howling with laughter. After some encouragement, I decided to grace you all with the presence of my very own list of "25 facts you don't (already) know about me."
Without further ado....
1. I cannot sleep without a fan. I travel with one. I do not camp because there is no electricity. When we lose power, I simply do not sleep. I MUST HAVE A FAN.
2. Egg yolk is creepy. I only like it in the form of deviled eggs.
3. I love the half-popped kernels of popcorn more than the full popped pieces of popcorn.

5. I can fit my fist in my mouth.
6. I cannot sleep at night without reading. I fall asleep every night with a book on my face.
