Eight Is Enough Is An Understatement


8 is not enough. 8 is too many. What were these people thinking?

I've been tagged with an 8 Things Meme by JCK over at Motherscribe. I know many people aren't fond of these but I like 'em. Even though when I started to really think about it...isn't the person tagged "it" in the game of tag; the loser? So, without further ado, here is the 8 Things Meme about my loser self.

8 Things I'm passionate about:
1. My children, husband, and family (kinda goes without saying)
2. Helping those in need (I should do more)
3. My intense dislike for GW Bush (elevates my blood pressure)
4. Writing (is my release)
5. Equality (for EVERYONE)
6. Tolerance (can't we all just get along?)
7. Chocolate frosting (best when kept in the fridge)
8. Clothes (fashion is my passion)
8 Things I want to do before I die:
1. Go to Paris and EAT TREMENDOUS AMOUNTS OF FOOD (French food is my favorite)
2. Meet the Queen of England because I think she's classy and I'm impressed by her
3. Kiss George Clooney on the mouth - open if possible
4. Fly as a passenger in a private jet, preferably with the subject from #3
5. Own a home on a beach
6. Be a grandmother (just not right now)
7. Get published and/or optioned
8. Attend Fashion week in New York, London, Milan, or Paris...I'm not picky
8 Things I say often:
1. Totally (I was a teenager in the 80's in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles...it stuck)
2. Like (see above)
3. Oh my God (this is getting redundant)
4. Sorry (I'm always apologizing unnecessarily)
5. Holy Smokes (in an effort to curb profanity I've become Batman)
6. Good Grief (and Charlie Brown)
7. What (I should really get my hearing checked)
8. Stop (with 3 kids this needs no explanation)
8 books I've read recently:

1. Twas the Night Before Christmas
2. Twas the Night Before Christmas (I read it twice, different authors and illustrators so it counts)
3. Rebels on the Backlot by Sharon Waxman
4. On Acting by Sanford Meisner
5. Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx
6. Why I'm Still Married: Women Write Their Hearts Out on Love, Loss, Sex, and Who Does the Dishes by Karen Propp and Jean Trounstine
7. How Not To Write A Screenplay by Denny Martin Flinn
8. Various and countless magazines. I'm out of books I can remember, guys.
8 Songs I can listen to over and over:
1. Woman by John Lennon
2. Imagine by John Lennon
3. Fire by Jimmy Hendrix (best driving fast song ever!)
4. Beastie Boys entire Licensed to Ill album (totally cheating but I cannot choose)
5. Come On Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners
6. Strip by Adam Ant
7. Stayin' Alive by the Bee Gees
8. Jesse's Girl by Rick Springfield (don't act like you don't. Everybody loves this song!)
8 things that attract me to my best friends:
1. Their scent (No. Not really. But I freaked you out for a second, didn't I?)
2. They make me laugh. A lot. Like Julia Roberts guffaw style.
3. Our history (We've all been close a couple of years shy of 2 decades)
4. Know how to have a good time
5. Laid back attitude
6. The ability to pick up where we left off when we last saw one another
7. Their intelligence
8. Their ability to take it to the grave or let it stay in Vegas (and "it" is none of your bidness)
8 People who should TOTALLY do this meme:
Okay. I'm totally breaking the chain and some horribleness may befall me, but I've tagged too many people with memes lately and I don't want to tick anyone off. So I'm tagging exactly zero people. If you'd like to partake, g'head! Let me know and I'll come read. Promise!

3. Kiss George Clooney on the mouth - open if possible

If this ever comes to pass, swear, right now, on a stack of Holy Bibles that you will send him on to me. I'll take your sloppy seconds.

Holy Smokes, Batman! I just wrote about Queen Elizabeth too! And when I was 13 (or whatever) I TOTALLY did extra chores forever so I could buy Jesse's Girl. I think I love you.

Madame Queen said...

Strip is one of my all-time, absolute favorite songs ever!! I used to have a real thing for Adam Ant.

George Clooney is the one real celebrity crush I have. So when Mrs. G. is done with him, maybe you pass him this way?

Ladies, I just don't think I can willingly share The Clooney. You will have to do whatever IT is you're gonna do when I'm not looking.

Adam Ant was freakin' HOT!

Nora Bee~ I get all goose pimply whenever I hear those opening cords of "Jessie's Girl" come on the radio. I've been known to sit in my car in the garage until it is over. I cannot turn it off until it is done.

LOL guffaw. 'Nuff said.

Karen said...

Holy Smokes, who doesn't love George Clooney? He's totally hot. But I wouldn't want him because my man is totally hot, too. And after all you ladies are done with him I fear he'd be a broken man.

JCK said...

I do remember Adam Ant being hot. Probably good that you didn't tag anyone. I'm still suffering the whiplash of slammed blog doors. :)
