Eight Things Meme

I have been tagged by Mudhooks as a recipient of this meme. This is one of two memes I have been tagged for recently. The other one will be done tomorrow.

8 things meme

Rules are simple, list 8 things you look forward to, 8 things you did yesterday, 8 things you wish you could do. Then tag 8 people and let them know they’ve been tagged with the meme.

8 things I look forward to:

At the moment

  1. being able to walk more than a couple of hundred meters
  2. Being able to walk without crutches
  3. Returning to work (honest!)

In general:

  1. Friday afternoons when I know there is no more damned work for a couple of days! (Yes I know this contradicts 3 but are we not all a quilt work of contradictions!)
  2. Taking a stroll in one of my favourite strolling places
  3. Charging up my camera batteries and taking a few good photos
  4. A relaxing bath scented with Ylang ylang oil.
  5. Good food, good drink and good conversation with my friends

8 things I did yesterday

  1. Lay in bed resting an aching knee
  2. Cooling down same knee with an icepack
  3. Visited other photo hunt bloggers
  4. Offered moral support to the not-wife and her dad while they erected a new rose arch
  5. Watched two recorded episodes of Mad Men
  6. Listened to part of The Commodore by Patrick O Brien on my i-pod
  7. Drank my first alcohol in over two months (a beer)
  8. Looked up recipes for making naval grog

Wow that was an exciting day, eh?

8 things I wish I could do

  1. Paint (more than stick figures)
  2. Sing (with a better voice than a castrated wildebeest)
  3. Dance (or at least dance better than a hippo in its hind legs!)
  4. Take better photos
  5. Afford a larger house with perhaps a hectare of grounds
  6. Find the works of the great philosophers anything more than an insomnia cure
  7. Gather together my acolytes of evil and put my plan of world domination into effect
  8. Bend forward and.... Err perhaps this one is not for a family friendly blog (even if that family happens to be the Addams Family)!

8 shows I watch on TV (I don’t watch a lot of TV any more)

  1. Battlestar Galactica
  2. Heroes
  3. Mad Men
  4. The I.T. Crowd
  5. Dexter
  6. Re-runs of the Star Trek series (except Voyager and Enterprise)
  7. Re-runs of my favourite sitcoms (Black Adder, League of Gentlemen and Father Ted)
  8. Programmes about ship wrecks, volcanoes, serial killers and kittens (the not-wife’s favourite viewing)

Now Who to tag? I always find this a major problem so I will throw it open to anyone who wants to do this meme

Nice answers. Your looking forward to in general is pretty much the same things that I look forward too :-)

and... "Gather together my acolytes of evil and put my plan of world domination into effect".. Exccccellllent... [fingers drumming together], always willing to offer myself as an acolyte of evil.

Thanks for doing this! I never know when I am going to put someone out by asking them to participate in one... like sending people chain letters.

It's a while since I've seen any memes around.

Poor Jams, walking is all you can think of I'm sure.

Funny how for some of us our computers have become our entertainment instead of TV.

jams o donnell said...

True jmb. Walking is high on my wish list at the moment! The computer and the internet certainly has become a focus for myself and the not-wife
