Tagged...8 Things

Cool! I've never been tagged before. And, despite Kristin asking me to do the 4-4-4 that Andrea tagged her in, I am going to let her do that one, since I wasn't tagged in that one. However, I was specifically mentioned in this tag, so here we go.

8 FAVORITE TV SHOWS I LOVE TO WATCH
Heroes
The Office
Survivor
The Amazing Race
(four more. . . seriously?)
America's Funniest Videos
Myth Busters (I don't see this one very often, but I like it a lot)
Law & Order (this always used to be on at mom and dad's)
And one guilty pleasure. . . Wizards of Waverly Place (forget all about this one, please).
8 FAVORITE RESTAURANTS
Happy Sumo
Carrabba's
PF Chang's
Fortune Cookie

8 THINGS THAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY
I went to work
I got a flu shot and though I wasn't the first one there (I had the first time slot—there were about ten people per time slot) I was the first one to have my paper work filled out, so I got my shot and was out of there before anyone else
I drank a vanilla soy protein shake for both breakfast and lunch (this will play a roll in a later activity—ewww, not like that)
I convinced a sick co-worker that she needed to go home
I stayed at work an hour late dealing with one of the most frustrating clients I have
I watched Survivor and The Office with Kristin
I worked out using our new Wii Fit, and found that I had lost an additional 2.2 pounds since the day before (thanks in part to the soy protein shakes).
I finished the evening by playing Wii Music for way too long.
8 THINGS I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO
The Holidays
The end of the semester
My dad's 50th birthday party
Our baby's birth
Our baby's firsts (first smile, first laugh, first tooth, first crawl. . .)
Graduation
Getting a job in my field
Reaching my goal weight
8 THINGS ON MY WISH LIST
A house
A biweekly maid to do all the deep cleaning
More time with Kristin
My own website for my freelance work
Travel outside the US
That more people would adopt the attitude that "I may not agree with what you have to say, but I shall defend to the death your right to say it."—I just feel that I can't express myself and my values in Utah County without having daggers thrown at me a lot of the time. It would just be nice to have a discourse without resorting to over-simplifications and name-calling.
Live completely debt-free
Win a 5K race
8 PEOPLE I'M TAGGING
RaeLynn White
Shannon Heath
Mikey and Karie Peterson
Mae Miller
Mike Painter
Devri Granados
Jackie Sarager
Ryan Goulding

YAY! FUN! And...I can't believe you think all those things you *insert unnecessary name calling* goofball!

If people didn't have different ideas than we would be participating in Satan's plan for us all, right?

:)

love you and thanks for doing it!

It's perfectly fine to disagree, but people shouldn't belittle another's view because they don't agree. State your own point of view, back it up if you can and then be respectful of each other.

That goes for lots of things, not just politics.

agreed on your commentary about respect and points of view and letting voices be heard :-)

Anne,

Thanks for reminding me of that quote! It is so brilliantly stated!

I don't agree with being respectful. People should be as mean and arrogant as they want. It's even better if they don't know what they are talking about and swear when they try to defend themselves.

Just kidding.

Ok, this was fun to read. Off I go to do my version!
