Crazy 8s (a tag)

I was tagged by Sarah almost a month ago!! I wanna tag someone who will do this (even if it takes a month or two!). How about Janice??

1. The Office (really, the only one I do watch currently)
2. Arrested Development (on dvd)
3. So You Think You Can Dance (cannot get enough of this!)
4. SNL (every once in awhile)
5. Mad T.V. (sometimes)
6. um.

5. A few gigs on the Hill, which I can't remember
6. Cardwell's (in St. Louis)

8. Pretty much any good Thai restaurant

8 Things I look forward to most in the morning

1. Coffee
2. Smelling Jillian's stinky breath (recently smelled like a hermit crab's aquarium. no joke.)
3. Cuddling with Miles
4. Seeing Avery has already managed breakfast for himself (I find his independence adorable)
5. Looking to see if it has snowed
6. Calling Brent to see if he made it to work, and how he's doing, and tell him I miss him already
7. Thinking new thoughts
8. Going to bed early (because I never do, but I always think I might with the hope that I will wake up more refreshed than I am in that moment...)

2. Lars and the Real Girl
3. King of Kong/Fistful of Quarters
4. Bottlerocket (again)
5. Persepolis

8 Things One Might Find Interesting or Peculiar about Me

1. I remember names, as long as I learn the first and last name. If you say, "My name's Heather." I'll forget it immediately. If you say, "Hi! I'm Heather Winklerschmidt." It's locked in forever.
2. I used to be a morning person until we had kids.
3. I LOVE order. I live in chaos. It's maddening, I tell you!!!
4. I didn't read for pleasure until I was in my mid-twenties. I have so much catching up to do on good reads!!!
5. I'm not much of a planner. It's a necessity, but I get kinda depressed when all my days are filled up before I get to them.
6. I'm indecisive. big time. For example, I've been wondering if I should dye my hair for five years. I mean, I've decided not to for five years??? No. I'm just undecided.
7. I've never been overseas. Don't even have a passport. Wish I did...wish I could...
8. It took me 15 minutes to come up with #7.

8 smells I love

1. the ocean
2. horse barns (leather, horses, hay...all of it. I miss it a lot!)
3. clean clothes
4. coffee
5. neutrogena sesame body oil
6. pipe tobacco
7. onion and garlic sizzling in olive oil
8. my children, clean or stinky

I like this, Jenna.

I laughed at Jillian's breath smelling like a hermit crab aquarium...

I always thought (or my husband always says) that babies' breath smells like blueberries. :)

Sarah said...

I agree....the one about Jillian's breathe got my heading tossing back for a good cackle. The dying hair bit...ugh...I think I've been pushed over the edge...my greys are getting so coily and noticeable. Ponytails are no longer an option because you REALLY see the patches. Decision made.

I enjoyed this so much...I love lists like this...honestly, I think ever blogger deserves a good tag every 6 weeks.

Yvette said...

Oh I totally get the indecisive point. I get made fun of for that quality...often.

Joel said...

yes,
coffee
pipe tobacco


unfortunately, I've given up both.

as of recent, Elizabeth's breath (at all points of the day) has been straight bumpin'. I'm not even sure what that means, but I heard it once in reference to some boys breath.

Did you think baby's mama was good?

danielle said...

i agree with all of your shows. how about scrubs???? totally love it.

JPB said...

I love it that you love the smell of pipe tobacco AND stinky children.

Kim said...

With a name like Winklerschmidt how could you not remember the last name. Also I love that SYTYCD made the cut of your fav TV shows and when I read Cafe Latte I cried because I wanna go there and have a big piece of chocolate cake. Also how could one of your fav smells not be your the smell of your own brand? I am just saying...
