peices of eight

November 30, 2007

MLE tagged me and because I love having a real important excuse to do a meme, here it is:

8 passions in my life
taking pictures
reading (books, blogs, etc)
the Internet
being aware of larger things going on in the world

8 things to do before I die
backpack in southeast asia/eastern europe (not on the same trip)
travel to Australia and New Zealand
get a Masters (preferably in Library Science)
own a kitten
fall in love
find a job that I love
plant and tend my own garden
attend an Olympic event

8 5 things I often say
“maybe, yes”
“shhhh” what can I say, I work in a library
“like the dickens”
“float your boat”

8 7 books I read recently
Fragile Things by Neil Gaimen
Of Beetles & Angels by Mawi Asgedom
Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together In The Cafeteria by Beverly Daniel Tatum (for class)
Crossing Over To Canaan by Gloria Ladson-Billings (for class)
The Right Attitude to Rain by Alexander McCall Smith
Cell by Stephen King (picked this up in a hostel this summer)
J.R.R. Tolkien: A Biography by Humphrey Carpenter (bought in oxford, devoured in scotland)

8 songs that hold some meaning for me (and by songs, you probably meant, movies, right?)
Good Will Hunting
Schindler’s List
Cool Runnings
Undercover Blues
The Truth About Cats & Dogs
Little Women
Boondock Saints

8 qualities I look for in a friend
an ability to find my dorkiness amusing
ability to make me laugh
willingness to alternately go to pubs on a friday night and make me forget to be bashful or to curl up, make popcorn and watch movies

8 people I’m tagging to go next
Katie (I can’t link to her, because she has a secret blog, but trust me it is very good and you should be sorry you aren’t reading it right now)
and as an awkward way of saying, “hey I just started reading your blog and I think it is really cool”
