Tagged again!

So, I'm one of those people who typically rebels against anything chain; as in chain letters, chain e-mails, chain forwards or anything that requires more energy in the little spare time that I have. However, it seems that Carey is hell-bent on having me share a little more about myself.

So here are my lists for the crazy 8's:

8 things I’m passionate about:
1. family
2. Google
3. environment
4. traveling
5. cooking
6. laughing
7. education
8. reading

8 things I want to do before I die:
1. bring Celeste Fenit home
2. enjoy exercising
3. win a spelling bee (ha, ha, ha)
4. retire in the coast of Spain
5. change legislation (any legislation)
6. get rid of our television
7. become a voice over artist
8. have my parents move in with us

8 songs I never tire of listening to
1. I will survive (Gloria Gaynor)
2. Hey Jude (The Beatles)
3. Amante Bandido (Miguel Bosé)
4. Limón y Sal (Julieta Venegas)
5. Manu Chao
6. Antonio Flores
7. My father signing flamenco
8. Edith Piaf

8 things that attract me to my friends
1. Good looks (hee, hee, hee)
2. Intelligence
3. Honesty
4. Funny
5. Willing to be total dorks
6. Obsessive Compulsive (about anything)
7. Self awareness
8. Independent

8 things I learned in 2007:
1. Patience, patience, patience
2. The world will may not come to a screeching halt – and I may not I lose friends – if my house is messy, but although all who see our mess will say its ok, they will talk about it among themselves.
3. "it's only one disposable diaper." is the biggest lie. The first disposable diaper is still in existence today.
4. Adoption is an environmentally friendlier option of increasing family.
5. It isn't what happens to you, it is how you choose to react to those challenges.
6. While traveling on leisure, leave electronic devices behind.
7. Work can and will go on without you; really, it can and will!
8. The truth cannot be held against you

8 things I say often:
1. You know, in California, kindergarten is not a required grade
2. Ugly words I cannot write here
3. Dorkasaurious rex
4. te adoro
5. fantastic
7. que?
8. when do you want to schedule that?

8 TV shows I recently watched:
1. Boston Legal
2. Grey's Anatomy
3. Mystery Diagnosis
4. New Adventures of Old Christine
5. Late show with David Letterman
6. Anything animal planet
7. Anything Discovery
8. Anything documentary
And for an added bonus round…
8 new parenting tips I’ve discovered for myself
1. water evaporates, so don't get upset if it spills
2. our children are the MOST important thing
3. our only job as parents is to keep our children safe (this applies to anything)
4. 2 choices are more than enough
5. our children don't get a choice about EVERYTHING
6. bring our children to sleep with us, because when they get older they won't want to
7. get caught boasting about them
8. tell them you may not like their actions but you love them no mater what
