Crazy Eights

Tagged by MidLeah, this one looks like a lot of fun, so.....

Eight Things I Have A Passion For:
  1. Sushi
  2. My Family
  3. Music. Most kinds, mostly isn't popular, but I like some popular music that fits my blend.
  4. Academics. If I am going to learn something I want to learn it well.
  5. Golf. A recent addition. I don't like the stuck up, hoighty toighty, elitist aspect of it. I like the act of playing a simple yet challenging game in the great scenery. Golf relaxes me, even though I am not very good at it.
  6. Dancing.
  7. Foreign Cultures and Cuisine
  8. Computers, the inner workings is fun stuff

Eight Things I Would Like To Do Before I Die:

  6. Contribute something meaningful to the World, doesn't need to be big, if it is a legacy that helps out my kids it will be enough.

Very nice!

Always a pleasure seeing another Grisham fan, too. There don't seem to be many of us left.

Superwoman said...

lol- honey can I get . . . SO true! Just when I think you have all the games and stuff you want, another one comes out. I'll work on the tag tonight.

Nobody™ said...

Zed's dead, buddy, Zed's dead...

Is Grisham still writing? I like his books, but they mostly all seem too much alike.

(I refuse to accept the tag. I'm lazy)

BigSister said...

I'll take Nobody's tag - this looks like a fun post to do.

Sushiboy said...

ML - There isn't many Grisham fans left? Wow, I must be living under a rock. After I few internet searches I've come to the same conclusion. Grisham fans have dwindled. Oh well, I've always liked him, since I read The Client way back in the early 90's I picked it up at a family friends house while on vacation, and finished the whole book in about 6 hours. I couldn't read fast enough.

SW - So sad and So true.

Nobody - Yah Zed is dead, and so is Dr. Mom. I just leave them the occasional tag for ol' times sake.

BgS - Great, can't wait to read your responses.

Sushiboy said...

isn't = aren't, I should really learn to proof read before I hit Publish.

Tug said...

I'll let you know when I get it done!

Grandkids are a blast...but enjoy YOUR kids while they're young enough that you all still like each other - LOL.

(I kid...kind of)

Sushiboy said...

Sage advice Tug. I'm working on it, but as I'm sure you know (having been through all this parenting stuff) that I could always do a little better at it. But its good times and worth it.

Superwoman said...

HoosierGirl5 said...

Hey, I'll do it. And I'll get Truckindude to do it too....somehow.
