Eminent Eights

Written By: Jenn - Jan• 10•10

Thom tagged me with this Lucky Chinese Tag called “Eminent Eights”, so I guess I need to step up and do it!

Here goes:

8 TV shows I like to watch: (I don’t watch a lot of TV. Hrm.)

  • Heroes
  • Chuck
  • House
  • Breakfast Television (Toronto)
  • Little Mosque on the Prairie (shocker, eh?)
  • Anything Star Trek related
  • Home Reno programs on HGTV
  • The Weather Network (I did mention I don’t watch a lot of TV, right?)

8 Favorite Places to Eat & drink:

  • Brydens (a local pub we frequent after most rehearsals) – they have awesome nachos!
  • Cora’s (have a lunch date there this afternoon in fact!)
  • Moxie’s
  • Troy’s Diner (love to support a supporter!)
  • Kelsey’s
  • Montana’s (Wee One calls it “Hannah Montana’s”)
  • Picnics in the park or on the beach
  • Someone else’s house (What time do you want us over? What can I bring?)

8 Things I Look Forward To:

  • The first hug from my kids in the morning. In the Teen’s case, it’s sometimes an after-noon occurrence…
  • Singing with my group (another shocker, I know)
  • Traveling of any sort (love getting out of my comfort zone)
  • Good hugs
  • Romance. Maybe. Someday. *sigh*
  • Walking in the woods
  • Laughter
  • Growing old with someone who loves me

8 Things that Happened Yesterday:

  • Power failure that took out a big chunk of our town, above the water tower. Got mighty cold in here!
  • Went to the bank and panicked before discovering I had the Teen’s debit card instead of mine. Whew.
  • Played chauffeur to the Teen, and the Teen’s BFF (how is that different than any other day tho?)
  • Cleaned the cabinet that houses my many sets of bar glasses and cookbooks. Put aside a good many to get rid of, too! (ShaMoo, dearest, you’re a wino you drink wine, do you want some new glasses?)
  • Broke in my new hiking boots. Or rather, they broke ME in.
  • Made plans with Knarf to go GeoCaching next week with our dogs. Wonder if we can entice the rest of the group to come with us… that would be a hoot!
  • Spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how Wee One scratched her face so badly… she has no idea.
  • Visited my grandmother in the hospital – she’s rallying, can you believe it? I can, that is one strong lady.

8 Things I Love About Winter:

  • Cosy sweaters
  • Curling up by the fireplace
  • Snow ball fights
  • I don’t have to shovel snow (isn’t that why we get married, after all??), so I can enjoy it
  • Christmas music (until Dec 26, then I’ve had enough)
  • After it snows, how clean and fresh everything looks
  • Watching the kids have fun building snowmen and snow forts
  • Yeah, I got nothing else. Sorry.

8 Things I Am Passionate About:

  • My family
  • My group
  • My friends
  • Music
  • Travel
  • Photography
  • Child safety issues
  • Oh yeah… and blogging! Wow, almost forgot that one!

8 Words/Phrases I (too) Often Use:

  • Awesome
  • You’ve got to be kidding
  • Anyway…
  • So, I had this dream last night… (ShaMoo, did you just choke on your coffee??)
  • Sure, I’ll do it (Note to self: learn to say NO)
  • Bite me
  • Are you out of your mind? (usually to the Teen)
  • What NOW? (usually to Wee One)

8 Things I’ve Learned from the Past:

  • Keep your mouth shut (ok, I’ve yet to learn that)
  • Think before you speak/email (erm, yeah, need to work on that too)
  • Tomorrow will NOT look after itself – plan ahead
  • No matter how much you want something, you just might not get it. Deal.
  • Life is short. Live.
  • Do one good deed per day, no matter how small.
  • Do things that make you happy. Make life worth living.
  • Always have something to look forward to, no matter how small
