Eight Things

January 13th, 2008

My super-sweet, super-fun and super-awesome friend Raesha tagged me with this meme. I was reading it and thought it was so neat - I had actually planned on swiping it. But no crime was committed since I saw that she tagged me at the end. I’m not going to tag anyone, but rather make an open-tag. So if you wanna play on your blog - leave a comment saying you’re playing.

8 Passions in my life:
My family
My friends
Living a good life
Quilting - sewing - embroidery
Eating food other people cooked
Being cozy at home surrounded by family

8 Things to do before I die:
Own a huge piece of land and live in my own village with everyone in my family.
Go to Paris, London, Spain and the Iowa State Fair (really)
Go back to Germany
Build a big studio
Learn to read music and play the piano
Lower my cholesterol
Get a de-boob job
To witness and live on a planet with no war

8 things I often say:
I love you
Holy crap
Shit, no shit and oh shit
The F word (sparingly though - I hope)
I’m pretty sure I was doing 55, officer.
Where do you want to go to dinner?
I’d like 2 yards please.

8 books I’ve read recently:
Books? How ’bout what I’ve just plain read lately…
The Target ad
Instructions on the Ikea chive sauce mix (WTF??? I need 1.77 oz of butter?)
Crate & Barrel catalog
FEMA forms, contractor bids and insurance papers
Debbie McComber’s “street books” series (I’m up to #3)
The Daily Astorian
The Oregonian
My latest cholesterol results (which have improved)

8 Songs that mean something to me:
Where You Lead - Carole King
Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton
Dear Mr. President - Pink
Not Ready to Make Nice - The Dixie Chicks
Candle in the Wind (the Dianna version) - Elton John
All Kinds of People - Big Mountain
Oh Bla Di Oh Bla Da - The Beatles
Hawai‘i Pono‘i - written by King David Kalakaua

8 Qualities I look for in a friend:
This is Raesha’s list… but it’s exactly what I would say.

8 TV shows I never miss:
Amazing Race
Nip / Tuck
Big Love
Entourage (oh yeah, oh yeah)
Project Runway
The Daily Show and The Colbert Report
Jimmy Kimmel

8 Radio shows I listen to:
Adam Carolla (and Teresa Strasser) - KLSX
Heidi, Frank and Frosty - KLSX
Daria and Mitch - KRSK
Fresh Air with Terry Gross - NPR
Car Talk - NPR
BBC World News - NPR
Ooops. That’s six

Thank you Rae-Rae!

Edited in:
I noticed there were SIX things on my EIGHT things list. So I added two of my own after the six from Raesha’s. Not very creative on my part - but it’s something I like to read about from everyone else.

  10. The fabulous Angela (Cottage Magpie) allegedly said:

    Awesome, I love this post! And check this: I was at IKEA yesterday, noticed the cinnamon roll mix there, picked it up–it calls for THREE STICKS of butter. THREE. No joke. As my husband says, “they don’t mess around.”
    ~Angela :-)

    I don’t know that I’ll ever do another meme - mine are SO BORING, and yours is the funniest ever!! I so heart you, my friend! You are the best!! I say many of the things you say, that’s for sure! LOL!
    I think my favorite is “To witness and live on a planet with no war” - heavy stuff, sister! I agree whole-heartedly.

  16. The fabulous Alicia P. allegedly said:

    “Instructions on the Ikea chive sauce mix (WTF??? I need 1.77 oz of butter?)”

    Still laughing (read it out loud and now he’s laughing too) :-)

  17. The fabulous Carol allegedly said:

    That large piece of land with all your family sounds a little like a commune…I’m just sayin’.

    I think I will tag myself because my blog just sucks lately and I am out of original material. I will probably lie and say that you tagged me though because I will sound pitiful otherwise.

  18. The fabulous raesha allegedly said:

    Dirty Jobs
    Project Runway
    The Office

    That’s it…during the day at work I just listen to my ipod or the regular radio. I’m so boring.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
