Crazy Eights

Geez, I miss a few days of reading my favorite blogs and return to find myself 'tagged' by Hula Girl. Since I don't have time to think up any topics to blog about, this works for me, so here goes:

8 THINGS I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT:
1. My wonderful family (especially Kilowatt, who is spending father's day cleaning the OUTSIDE of the house!)
2. Reading
3. Scrapbooking (and scrapbook supplies)
4. Computers and the Internet
5. Horses (and their unique healing powers)
6. Business Ethics (and leading the next generation to be more ethical than my generation)
7. Freedom
8. Music

8 THINGS I WANT TO DO BEFORE I DIE:
1. Write a book
2. Finish my coursework and dissertation
3. Take a world cruise
4. Spend a year traveling around the US, hitting off the beaten path attractions along with the major ones
5. Catch up on my scrapbooking!
6. See Diva graduate from college
7. Make one of my high school reunions
8. Ride a mule in the Grand Canyon

8 THINGS I SAY OFTEN:
1. "Meanwhile, back at the ranch" used when I ramble off on a tangent from the current discussion
2. "Just a sec" This one has come back to bite me, as now whenever we ask Diva to do something, the response is invariably "just a sec."
3. "Brush your hair"
4. "Don't forget to check BlackBoard" if you know what I mean, your either a college student or a college professor!
5. "I need the phone" if you are the parent of a pre-teen girl, you know what I mean
6. "Yes, my husband and I have different last names" I never dreamed how difficult this concept would be for others to accept. We are married, really!
7. "Thank you, God" Okay, I don't say it often enough.
8. "yes, I can do that" and I really need to learn to say 'no, I don't have time for that.'

8 BOOKS I'VE READ LATELY:
1. Extraordinary Circumstances - Cynthia Cooper
2. The Legend of River Mahay - Deborah Cox Wood
3. Race Across Alaska - Libby Riddles
4. Executive Orders - Tom Clancy (for about the fifth time)
5. Jade Island - Elizabeth Lowell
6. Great Family Vacations: Northeast (it's summertime!)
7. 1000 Places to See Before You Die
8. Fraud Examination (yes, professor, I read my text)

8 MOVIES I'VE WATCHED 8 OR MORE TIMES:
1. Dirty Dancing - my favorite 'guilty pleasure' movie
2. Christmas Vacation - our annual tradition
3. Star Wars (original) - and at least six of those on the big screen
4. ET - ditto
5. High School Musical - I'm the Mom of a ten year old girl, what can I say?
6. Hairspray - Diva's current favorite
7. Mulan - MY all time Disney favorite
8. Grease - Diva's past favorite

8 PEOPLE TAGGED TO PLAY ALONG:
Given that on a good day (that being Fun Monday) I'm lucky to have 8 readers, not sure how to handle this one! Can I cheat and make up names?

Thanks for playing along! Ha! I forgot about "I need the phone" when I made my list. I say that all of the time, too.
