A fellow blogger tagged me in her blog listing eleven things about herself plus answering eleven questions...I guess it is time for me to play along...
Anyways, here goes and I am going to break the rules here -- If you read my blog and want to do this on your own blog, feel free. If not it is cool.
The Rules of the Game
1. You must post these rules
2. Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
5. No tag backs and you legitimately have to tag 11 people. (Eh whatever...I break the rules!)
