Tag.. I'm it..

I was always "it" because I ran so slow... oh well.

Ok... so I've been blogger tagged, and I'm a good sport :-)  - thanks Kathy!! Here are the rules ...
1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions set for you in your tagger's post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blogs and tell them you’ve tagged them
6. No stuff in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you are reading this." You legitimately have to tag 11 people! (I left it at 5...)
OK... here are 11 random facts about me:

I grew up outside of San Diego (with a few years in Japan), went to middle and high school in Alaska, lived in Seattle for 18 years.. now in Colorado
