Crazy Eights Tag

Oh bother. I was tagged. Tagged twice. Connie Hall and Danyelle Ferguson both got me. At almost the same time, too.

I will be a good sport and participate even though I have an almost OCD – “Monk” level aversion to these taggy things. Let me put on my gloves. Anybody have a hankie?

Here be Da Rules:
1- Mention the person(s) who tagged you.
2- Complete the list of 8’s.
3- Tag 8 other bloggers.
4- Tell them they have been tagged.

Rule number 5 (for my list): Don’t be reading anything into the order of things. Except for maybe the very first entry. Food rules.

Eight Things I Look Forward To:

1. My next meal
2. Going fishing in the summertime
3. Spoiling grandkids rotten and then sending them back home
4. Church on Sunday
5. Being independently wealthy so I can go back to school as a perpetual student
6. Traveling to Israel someday

Crazy Eights Tag — 6 Comments

  1. Gee – thanks…

    Well, at least I wasn’t double-teamed like you were! Poor thing, I hope they didn’t knock you over when they tagged you. Those two can be pretty rough and tumble! LOL

    Alllll-RIGHT. I’ll do it… maybe not tonight, but I’ll do it!

  2. Would you prefer I say I want to bow out?

    I appreciate the gesture across the waves of etherness, but I just don’t wanna play right now.

    Really busy with my edits.

    I do want to hear what you are working on next though. Later.

  3. Anything that drives a person to chocolate can’t be all bad. I’ll do it, too, but maybe not before next Friday. (I do have a personal blog, but it’s more a “theory” than a place I actually post.)

  4. Thanks for participating, Daron! I’m sorry I put you through such an horrible thing! 🙂

  5. Loved the 8s you wrote. =] The perpetual student was my favorite, I won’t lie. =]

  6. Healing is going the way it is supposed to, or at least that is what I hope. Thanks for the tag…you can search back on my pages and find mine…I think I did it in Aug, Sept or Oct. I know it was in the fall at least!
