Who comes up with these anyway? 8 things? Why not 9? Or 39?
I’ll have to bring out my handy dandy button today. Here you go.
And just so you know... there’s only 6 categories in the 8 things MEME? Isn’t that kind of…off?
8 things I have a passion for:
8 of them.
8 things to do before I die
Like a mini bucket list? How cute.
Live for a whole year in
See A Sunday Afternoon on the
See the actual
Meet Barbara Kingsolver.
There’s more but you don’t care do you?
Eight things I say a lot.
So. I say so a lot. My sister makes fun of me for it. So there.
A lot. I say a lot, a lot. And I always want to spell it alot instead of A LOT.
And if I’m being really honest. I say Shit. Sorry. I do.
(a story). My dad was speaking in church.
He spoke right up and said he was raised in a ‘Damn and Hell’ kind of family and that’s just how it was.
My whole family crawled under the pews and nearly died.
8 books I’ve read recently
I won’t make fun of this, I’m serious about books.
Faith Preceeds the Miracle, By Spencer W. Kimball
Fablehaven, By Brandon Mull
Life of Pi, By Yann Martel
Eat, Pray, Love By
The 3 book series by Nancy Turner:
These is my words, Sarah's Quilt, The Star Garden
The 5 book series by Phillippa Greggory:
(Start with ‘The Constant Princess” and read “The other Boleyn Girl” second.)
That was more than 8, so sue me, a lot, I’m a nerd.
8 movies I’ve seen 8 times.
Die Hard 1 and 2 (of course I saw the 4th one, you don’t have to ask.)
Three Amigos (I can sing the buttercup song, can you?)
Saturday the 14th. But these last two don’t count. They’re from way back when cable was new for my family and they were the only two movies on. We watched them because we could. NOT because we liked them.
8 people to invite to do this meme.
Nope. Not gunna do it. You can’t make me.
Go Meme yourself instead.
And I’m going to have to add the extra two categories since it’s just way too short with only 6 in a list of 8s? Equality and all that?
8 reasons Memes are weird.
1) The title. Meme is dumb.
2) And unpronounceable
3) Let’s call them: Get to Know You’s.
4) We could add theme music from The King And I.
5) I really hate the music from The King And I.
6) Which reminds of that Jr. High Siam joke.
7) Where you say ‘WhatanAh” before everything, and then say it before
8) 8 is too many anyway.
8 Plants in my garden. Because they make me happy.
1) Purple Coneflower
2) Crimson Daylily
3) Yellow Cannas
5) Blue Mist Spirea (Bee attractor I dub thee)
6) Korean Spice Viburnum (Absolutely NOTHING smells better than this flower in spring!)
7) Basket of Gold
8) Jupiter’s Beard (Who comes up with these names?)
And lavender. Because it is bursting out there right now.
