Crazy Eights

So I was over at Blue Momma's Page the other day and I fell in love with her Crazy Eights Meme, which she did not tag me for, so I tagged myself. Don't worry, I let her know. She deemed me tag 8.1. Because as we all know 8.1 rounds down to 8. At least Blue Momma and I know this, because we work in the accounting field (or once did) and we are smarts like that. And then just as I was about to tag Bren over at Three Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, I saw that she had tagged me for this too!! Yay!!! I love being tagged. So if you are ever sitting around wondering, " Hmmm, who wants to be tagged?" The answer is ME! ME!
So anyway here are my Crazy Eights. Please read Crazy Eights in the voice of the old Price is Right anouncer guy, because that is totally the voice that I am writing it in.

I'm passionate about Angelina Jolie starting to eat again! Girl looks live Olive Oil these days. She's not so much making me want to switch teams anymore.

And I also made note of the you like to be tagged thing. Be careful what you ask for.....

OH HOW I LOVE YOU!! Peter Gabriel's In Your Eyes is "our" song & was my favorite before that. Good to know about tags. Did you get the awards from Sat from BM & I??

Oh, and when you are done with Outlander, please let me know, as I LOVE IT. Interesting to read it with Time Trav's Wife concurrently. I didn't like TTW after O.

Bren said...

I love James Blunt's You're Beautiful! I like him a little less after reading about him and Lindsay Lohan but still...love that song!

JUST A MOM said...

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Good meme. Have to admit that I gave up on the Time Traveller's Wife. I just didn't like it.

Momo Fali said...

I love reading about YOU YOU!

Mom Chatter said...

I so MISS Bob Barker!! :(

Is dirt cake, the pudding stuff? If so, LOVE it!

Making note that you like to be tagged! (I like it, too... but I WON'T admit it... oops!)

I'll get on this... probably won't post it until the weekend though... the BIG 100 is on tap for this week! :)

Amanda said...

Thanks for sharing and also tagging me. I'll enjoy doing this one.

Phat Phannie said...

Time Travelers Wife - I remember being confused a lot, but it was good.

And you know I can relate to wanting to own a house!

Oh, The Joys said...

I loved The Red Tent and Middlesex.

Dana said...

Oh, Yay! Thanks for the tag!

I liked James Blunt right up until I read Bren's comment about him and Lindsay Lohan. I also used to like John Mayer up until the whole Simpson escapade. What are these people thinking?
