8 Things...

I've seen what fun everyone has been having with the new meme that's doing the rounds, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Heaven knows, there can't be much left that you don't know about me by now, but here goes anyway.

Eight things I am passionate about:

1 My son
2 My friends
3 Equality
4 Education
5 Music
6 Crisps
7 Books of all kinds
8 Perfume (strange one, huh?)

Eight things I want to do before I die:

1 See my son grow up
2 Visit Australia
3 Work with street children in the Phillipines
4 Graduate
5 Write a novel
6 Find love
7 Run a marathon
8 Learn to drive

Eight things I say often:

1 Fuck
2 You have got to be kidding me
3 Absolutely
4 Goodnight my angel
5 I thought I had made myself clear

3 Somewhere Only We Know by Keane
4 Going Underground by The Jam
5 On My Own from Les Miserables
6 This Years Love by David Gray

8 Be My Love by Mario Lanza (really)

Eight things that attract me to friends

1 A sense of humour

Right, Rainbow, and Belle off you go.

Excellent! So many people seem to want to write a novel these days! I hope they all do. Including me!!

Saying "Of course you can come and see me" is one of those things I say often and really wish I hadn't.

I hope so too, Crystal. Am dashing over to yours because you've been posting like mad & I need to catch up

Nice list Tina, and reading it made me realise I'd forgotten the 8Songs I Listen to Over and Over.

I've put them on now, but they aren't as posh as yours, obviously.


Tina said...

That's me, SM, posh as nobody's business...

Am done, am done! Do I get a prize for doing it so quick?

Have noticed - may take me a while but I'll get to it!! xx
