the 8 things meme proper

After much (well, okay some) consideration, in no particular order (despite the ordered lists):

8 Things I Am Passionate About

  1. My babies
  2. Don
  3. The view from my balcony
  4. Food
  5. Music (and dancing about my house)
  6. The detective/crime genre (books, dvds, I care not what medium)
  7. Baking (desserts and cakes and roasts and traditional anglo things and such)
  8. Learning (anything, I adore to learn stuff)

8 Things I Want to Do Before I Die

  3. Travel regularly (and lots! and I don’t care where!)
  4. See my babies do well
  5. Buy lots of art (sculpture mostly)
  6. Own an awesome collection of mid century modern furniture

8 Things I Say Often

  1. “Ohmigod….”
  2. “[list of things]….and such”
  3. “Totally!”
  4. “I can’t believe … well, I can believe, I really should stop saying I can’t believe things when I totally can believe them, anyway…”
  5. “I’m going to Italy!”

8 Songs I Could Listen to Over and Over

  1. City Middle The National
  2. Goodnight Lover Fluke

I had rather a lot of trouble limiting it to 8 – these were just totally off the top of my head. In fact, I think a quite good blog project would be listing 64(82) songs I could (and have) listen(ed) to over and over.

  1. I’m liking her so much better than Agatha Christie. I really like how her style evolves from the 30’s to the 70’s. I think the later novels (say post-1950) are infinitely improved, but still quite like the 30’s ones – particularly I love the slang (I really need to adopt it for every day use).And, yes, Scales of Justice was rather awesome.
