Eight, on a date, went out and ate, ain't it great?

I know.

I said no more memes for a while, dammit. But I was sucked in by the charm and flattery that is the Evil Genius. How can I say no to a declaration of love? Plus, you know how I love me some evil.

One more, than my moratorium on memes is back, dammit.

8 Things I’m Passionate About
1. Any and all pork products.
2. Being right, occasionally.
3. Wine
4. Jake Ryan
5. Bargain shopping- I dig through racks like I’m collecting evidence at a crime scene. Every freaking inch gets searched, cataloged and tagged as evidence.
6. Perfect carrot cake and my homemade mac & chz.
7. Making time to do nothing but lay around the front porch and read magazines.
8. Singing badly, often.

8 Things I Want to Do Before I Die
1. Win the lottery.
2. Become infamous.
3. Open another restaurant.

7. Kick Dick Cheney in the balls.
8. Clive Owen.

8 Things I Often Say
1. “Awesome”
2. “um…”
3. “douchebag”
4. “are you going to finish that?”
5. “yes, I’ll have another glass”
6. “where are my damn pants?”
7. “Fuckety, fuck, fuck”
8. “No, I don’t mind. Not at all.”

8 Things That Attract Me to My Best Friends
1. We all stopped giving a shit a long time ago.
2. Our love of VH1.
3. They drive much better than I do.
4. Our mutual adoration of Top the Tater and Doritos.
5. Extravagant birthday gifts.
6. Nice tits.
7. They hold their liquor much better than I do, and that is worth noting.
8. Forgave me for peeing in the plant that one time (see #7).

8 Things That Drive Me Crazy
1. Tall, dark and handsome.
2. People that can’t just get to the fucking point in a reasonable amount of time.
3. Badly cooked eggs.
4. “Texting”.
5. Bold, blatant selfishness.
6. Fat dudes with no shirts on the first few warm days of spring/summer.
7. The smell of bacon cooking.
8. When I lose my pants.

8 People I Think Should Go All "Crazy 8's" on Us
Tagging innocents for memes makes baby Jeebus cry. Do this if you want, don’t if you don’t. I’m not the boss of you.

We have well established by now that this is where memes go to die.

And, more memes for a looooong time, pretty please. Please? Even if I give you a virtual french kiss?
No tongue.

Happy Friday, my eight-legged, hairy creepy-crawly thingys.

"she's always lookin' at me. I think it's kinda cool the way she's always lookin' at me."

McGone said...

oooo...Good call on the Elliot Smith.

But I think you said "The Smiths" just to make Evil Genius fall even harder for you.

McGone said...

Do me a favor and pretend there's a second "t" at the end of "Elliot" in my last comment.

Iheartfashion said...

Mmmm...Clive Owen.

And I'd join you in beating Dick Cheney!

domboy said...

Nikki Sixx wrote a book? Did you like it? I used to adore him.

Whiskeymarie said...

dguz- How sad I have the whole movie memorized...

McGone- I hesitated to put the Smiths down, but dammit I love the song. Guess a girl can always use another stalker.

iheart- I'll invite you to join in the kicking, for sure.

domboy- LOVED the Nikki Sixx book. Dirty, trashy fun.

Fran said...

Good lists. And never hesitate to add the Smiths for God's sake.

LM said...

How did you like The Heroin Diaries?? That's been on my list to read. Worth it?? I'm thinking it has to be - it's Nikki Sixx!

Suze said...

Thank God it's a meme. I thought your post was going to be about that terrible fruit, the dreaded date. Don't scare me like that.

gorillabuns said...

Oh, how I loves me some 80's "near death dude: metal and The The.

and Jake Ryan. He's the stuff that fantasies are still made of.

Ben said...

ELO, good stuff right there. Mr. Blue Sky is my fav of theirs.


Butrfly Garden said...

The word "douchebag" has become pretty freeflowing in my vocabulary. It's starting to creep out when I'm around the kids and becomes "douch-it-it-y." They already know what 'shitty' means. I really don't want to have to explain what a douchbag is. :)

Freida Bee, MD said...

WhiskeyMariski- When we finally meet, even if it's when we're 74 year-old bloggers, we must...

-thrift store shop together
-work on that infamy thing
-Drive around (I'll drive, 'cause you'll probably be tanked, 'cause I want to see you lose your pants up close and in person.)in one of our electric hoover cars, crankin' ELO.

(Oh, and DCup should be there so we can all take turns with sitting in the back seat with Clive.)

Distributorcap said...

how can anyone not like the smell of bacon! or do you like it and it drives you crazy

Whiskeymarie said...

Bacon = my one true love.

And Freida? You're on.

Lollie said...

Do small boobies mean I will never be your true friend?

Mommy Lisa said...

My DD song I could listen to over and over is "The Chauffer" and either the original or the update they did in the ninties. I love both and Simon Le Bon.

Chiada said...

Jake Ryan?!? He's a Senior! And he's taken. I mean really taken.

Oh how I cracked up several times on this post. I know you don't like doing memes, but I'm glad you did on this one. Way to go!

*snap* Beat it, pencil neck.
Female extraterrestials?
Black and white..capture the moment.. awwww
Lake! Big lake!
She get meweed!

:) Oops. Must.make.myself.stop.quoting.movies!

Evil Genius said...

You realize this is only encouraging me, right?

The Grand ChaHee said...

I'm glad I'm not the only person left who is passionate about JAKE RYAN!
