I got a Cami tag… five memes ago… and I am finally done with it!!! And then I got another 8 things meme tag from Meherenow just the other day! Laawwwwd… am I a sucker for attention or what, bunnies??!? Anyhoodle, the easiest part of this list to complete was the books and the music… in fact the music list had to be DRASTICALLY whittled down to just 8, and of course my “top 8” changes every other day too!! And then I added a list of eight random things to the bottom of the list to match up with your tag, Meherenow!

And to finish it I’m adding 8 things for MeHereNow… sheesh… so what don’t you know about me yet? This gets tricky after more than two years…

    1. I adore diamonds… I plan on buying my own stone one day as a celebration of how far I have come! My dad doesn’t get it.
    2. If I am ever serious enough over someone to consider marriage… I’ll simply have a canary if he proposes on Valentines Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Valentines Day, my birthday or New Year’s Eve!!! No offence to those who have done or are planning to do so…
    3. I maintain my physically handicapped nephew’s “fan club” newsletters and blog, and I love doing it.
    4. I am a stickler for the rules. I stick to the speed limit and the road rules as much as I possibly can, I don’t drive inside the emergency lane, I indicate, I give way for bikes and pedestrians. I don’t litter. I don’t park where I’m not supposed to.
    5. I am either on time or a little early. I loathe tardiness in myself and anyone else… I get that from my daddy darling.
    6. I only once bunked school (played hookey) in my entire school career, and that was by accident. The one day there were several excursions on the go and most of the grade 11s weren’t going to be at school. I was driving to school with Damien’s father everyday and when I arrived at his house dressed and ready he was still in his jammies and his mom had already left! So I nabbed a T-shirt, we got back into bed and pretty much stayed there for the day.
    7. I have smoked grass three times in my life and once ate several “enhanced” brownies… and was sorely disappointed when nothing happened!!! I gave it up as a waste of money and stuck with cigarettes.
    8. My 21st birthday was celebrated a month in advance of my actual birthday at what was then (and still is though it no longer exists) my favourite hang out- The Robber’s Dog Tavern. I took some liver capsules so I could prepare myself, drank everything I could get my hands on- my dad even made me stand on a table to deliver my speech and then down a “sex on the beach”- and I was still sober at 3am. So I found me someone on the dance floor as my friends had had enough and gone home, and asked him to take me home. We ended up being chased all over the suburb I live in by the cops ‘coz we kept stopping on the side of the road to shag in the car!
