This is one of those Facebook thingies that Kelly Brown did.

Let others know a little more about yourself, re-post this as your name followed by "ology" Then tag 20 people of your choice. Once you have been tagged you must do it and then tag the person that tagged you!

Well, I ain't tagging nobody. (That being a double negative, does that mean that EVERYBODY's tagged?)
