Yay for me! Now I have something for Tuesday. BTW, who is hosting Monday tomorrow? I can't remember. Oh, & know what? The way I told Pup SD was coming was ala Love Shack. I had Cheesecake Factory write "Tin roof rusted" in chocolate on his plate. Crack me up. The twinning continues.

Bren said...

I used to love playing Crazy 8 with my dad.

mjd said...

This Eights thing looks like thought provoking-work. You like an interesting variety of songs. Love Shack is one of my favorite dancing tunes.

Toni said...

Great post; fun to learn something new about you. I, too, am going through the Harry Potter books and Poisonwood Bible is one of my favs!

Devilish Southern Belle said...

Thanks so much for playing along! I love learning more about my net friends via memes!

Sweet Baby James - yes - every summer camp night had this song.

And Shook me all night long - every dance in middle and high school had THIS song :)

Serina Hope said...

Love Shack is my favorite. if it is possible, I now like you even more.

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

Oh, yay! This meme looks like it'll be fun to fill out. Thanks!

It is wonderful that your #1 thing you say is "I love you." If more people could claim that, the world would be on its way to being nice....

Emma in Canada said...

Oh tanks Blue Momma! Now I have something to do this week. i should probably keep a list of memes so I have something for those days where I have nothing. Like today. So I did a poll.

Debs said...

Love the lists :)

buddha_girl said...

Holy moly! I love 5-7 on your music list! AC/DC is one of Buddha's fav groups! Good times.

I'll find some time laster today or tomorrow to do the Crazy 8. Oy vey, I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off!

buddha_girl said...

I do a MEAN Love Shack when I'm wasted and have a Karaoke microphone within arm's reach.
