THE BIG 8 MEME

Tagged by KELLEY over at MagnetoBoldToo!

8 Things I am Passionate About

  1. My Kids - They are parts of me, they always come first.
  2. My dream land & home - I want to just pack up and disappear into the outback, no traffic, smog, noise (well there will be natural noise, that i don't mind), no blaring street lights all night.
  3. My SEXY MAN - who will read this and get cranky that I called him that :P
  4. My degree - I will be a Registered Nurse by the end of 2009!
  5. My Country - WHY DO WE NEED TO DOWNGRADE OUR HEALTH SYSTEM & EMPLOYMENT SYSTEMS JUST TO BE MORE LIKE AMERICA MR HOWARD???
  6. My environment - Why do we need to use and abuse our planet?
  7. Good Hygiene - I was born to be a nurse lol cause i cant stand people not washing their hands after toileting or playing with pets or gardening etc.
  8. NO SMOKING - it doesn't just hurt you, it hurts people around you, like me who cant (and hasn't other than 10 mins the night i turned 18) go to nightclubs without a trip to the hospital just because other people smoke in enclosed spaces or in front of the only door into the shops etc, causing people like me to have asthma attacks etc. If you must abuse yourself with chemicals, choose one that only hurts you - eat heaps of apple seeds or lick a toad/frog etc!

8 Things I want to do before I die

  1. Get my 100+ acres & live in a big shed home with no close neighbours or traffic
  2. Give my kids what i didn't have - nice weddings, help getting their first home, grandparents to babysit or help with sick kids, someone to confide in.
  3. Visit Ireland, England, Scotland to drool over accents and quaint architecture
  4. Visit Ethiopia to see the archaeological wonders and to eat really hot Dorowot with traditional Teff Enjerra's.
  5. Visit Egypt, see archaeological wonders and visit one of my friends from high school.
  6. Find Tammy Dunstan and say sorry for standing there and not stopping the so called popular girls from humiliating her when we were 14.
  7. Have my dream wedding, before the eyes of god, family and friends, but no idiotic govt paperwork.
  8. Tell centrelink (the system, not the staff) to go shove their paperwork and regulations cause i don't need them ever again!
8 Things I say often
  1. SHUT UP!!!! I can't hear myself think!
  2. I told you to GO TO BED!
  3. WASH YOUR HANDS!! WITH SOAP!!!
  4. What part of NO do you NOT understand????
  5. Hurry Up or you will be late for (school/soccer/athletics etc.)
  6. (said to DBF) It's YOUR fault I'm a hormonal mess, You didn't give me enough Sex today!
  7. I NEED MORE CHOCOLATE!!!

Hey babe,
I think the freight free offer is *still* on - I know with my order it didn't show up until I went through the checkout. Just thought I'd mention it in case you do order and in case you're close to $65 or something. Mine came through as a credit equal to the freight amount.

Thanks for tagging me. :-)

OK, your music choices scared the living heck outta me. No freaking long car rides with you my girl!

Except for Enter Sandman. That rocks!

You did really really well. Everyone but me did. I am feeling a little sheepish about my half arsed attempt now!

No free freight for me, they musnt love me as much as Lightening, but thats ok, cause I am still happy to have found labels for clothes and stuff and hopefully going via that link means Lightening gets a little something from it, so there you go, a Christmas present from me! Mwuhahahaha!

And Kelley! Kelley!! Kelley!!!

WHAT do you mean you didnt do well?? I didnt realise it was a competition and I enjoyed reading your answers to the meme.

Oh and the music choices, well it only let me list 8, i have over 400 favourites in my mp3 list from every genre excepting rap and a total of 4000 that i can happily put on random and listen too, including all the 20,s and 30,s jazz, 50's early rock, 60's hippy stuff like Creedence Clearwater Revival, 70's and 80's disco and rock as well as the 90's and onwards.

I like most music, there is very little i dont like, most musicians and bands i like at least one of their songs, like Korn, I like a few of their songs, but not all of them, Rap is the only genre i hate with a passion, eminem and that crap. Only time i like rap is when its mixed with real singing and done well, like some of the Mariah Carey duets or Black Eyed Peas stuff.

Hahah I also like Britney Spears and Michael Jackson and Prince (although the latest album is weird and we won three copies of it lolol).

Me in a long car trip, well I have a 12 stacker cd player, so can have a huge variety and hit it on random. BUT I prefer music I can howl along with, which is why all the girls get higher preference, because I have the "gospel" vocal range, I can imitate Mariah, Celine etc with little to no difficulty, even the high pitch squeaky bits, however I am stage shy, to the point of losing my voice totally, so you wouldnt be likely to have me inflict it on you lol. it has taken me over 3 years to be able to sing along to my own music in my own home when DBF is here!

LOL so if we ever have to go on a freakin long car ride together, i promise to let you have 6 full cds of music of your choice and we will see who the random selector prefers (we have noticed it prefers my music over DBF's even when we have exactly the same number of songs and discs as each other).

Hugs!
