25 Random Things about Me for Spammers

1.    I took an online survey once, and it said that my porn star name would be Chi-Chi Monticello. Isn't that funny?

2.    I liked my first pet so much that I named my banking password after him.
3.    My favorite actor is Morgan Freeman. Interestingly, he has the same last name as my mother had, although Morgan and I are not related.

4.    If I had to see just one Morgan Freeman movie, it would have to be "The Shawshank Redemption." That's definitely my all-time favorite movie. Ironically, Shawshank was also the name of my high school. 

5.    The last four numbers of my social security number are the same as the year I was born, 1979. I bet that doesn't happen too often!

From The Christian Science Monitor: Anti-Social Networking

Here from the relative safety of the printed word, I would like to announce that I am a failure at Facebook. I've had a Facebook account for three years now, and I have a grand total of four - count 'em - four friends. That's an average of just over one new friend a year. You have to be either incredibly discerning or incredibly unpopular to fail so magnificently at social networking.
