8 Things

The Red Deer tagged me!

I must admit that when I realized I was tagged I had that split-second of sheer terror that I felt playing tag on the playground. I don't know why being tagged scared me so much when I was little... I don't think I was a terribly fast kid. Anyway... being blog-tagged is not nearly as scary.

Without further ado, here are several things you might be interested in. (And do know that since I started completing this list some time has elapsed. I'm currently enjoying some of my 'looking forward to's.)

8 Things I'm looking forward to:
1. Having a kick-ass Masters Degree at age 23
2. Seeing the family
3. Baking the next batch of cupcakes
4. Getting a job (pretty please?!)
5. Filling out forms with an "occupation" other than "student"
6. Peeling this blood orange
7. Having time for unassigned reading
8. Packing the apt. and driving to VA

8 Things I did yesterday:
1. Took a shower
2. Read 68 pages on the FARC
3. Took a nap
4. Played with fondant
5. Wore shorts all day in Maine in April
6. Ate sherbet for the first time in years
7. Discovered a three-piece suit that I've never worn is now the wrong size
8. Tried a new fruit and loved it

8 Things I wish I could do:
1. Remember the wierd name of the fruit I tried yesterday and loved
2. Make a living by baking and blogging about it
3. Make a spectacular soy latte at home
4. Look good while running
5. Present at CCCC
6. Fast forward 5 days
7. Teleport
8. Make cakes and cupcakes for kid birthday parties

8 Shows I watch:
1. Biggest Loser
2. Dancing with the Stars
3. Bachelor/Bachelorette (whichever one is on at the time)
4. Grey's Anatomy
5. The L Word (does this one still count?)
6. Jeopardy!
7. Wheel of Fortune
8. The Tyra Show (I wish I didn't. But I do.)

Okay, so there you just got your overload of Amanda for the day. :) I did enjoy filling that out though. It wasn't nearly as scary as real tag. So now I have to tag 8 other people. (In real life, most of these people would outrun me and I'd just have to give up or pass out. Not in the blog world!)

Evan of Fatally Ambiguous
Kate of The Domestic Empress
Rachel of So, In a Nutshell
Amber of Newly Domesticated
Jess of Family is a Funny Sort of Animal
Kira of Kira Disapproves
Matt of Enigmatic Argyle
Bridget of The Life and Times of a Walking Disasterpants

I'm glad I've converted you to oranges (and blood oranges!). Now, if only you could remember what that other fruit was...

Hmm..I come over here to give you big props on finishing your MA...WOO!! And find myself implicated in your blog post. Interesting. What does this mean?

Also, is that the three piece suit you bought at H&M, or a different one? Because if you have worn all the pieces separately, that kind of counts I think... :)

Amanda said...

Evan: It was a minneola! I think...

Kmari03: Sorry... I didn't really explain. :) The ppl I just tagged (you included) now have to post your own 8 things in each of the categories above. It's fun. Just do it.

Amanda said...

Oh, and the suit is the H&M one, but I only ever wore the vest. :(

Ash said...

Amber said...
