too much information

How fun!... I was tagged by kate8085 of Where Eagles Dare (thanks!) a few days ago in the theme of eight , and thought what a great way to share some random facts. So to accompany the random lists is a flashback image of one of my old random collages (circa sometime in the 90s... eek!) so here goes...

8 things I am looking forward to:
· seeing my hubby when he gets home from work everyday
· going camping this weekend... yay!
· getting a new high end printer, so that I can start making art prints
· going on our next big foreign vacation (went to Vietnam this year, next one is still tbd)
· the release of Where the Wild Things Are movie
· sleeping in on weekends
· starting a little family
· buying a house with a porch one day, with a separate studio and small yard for a garden

8 things I did yesterday:
· worked on more collages
· worked on an illustration and cd design for a client
· tended to the garden (it's a patio garden, so that didn't take very long)
· one load of laundry (whites) in our new machine that I am obsessed with.. yay front-loaders!
· online banking
· listened to Lykke Li
· dug out some camping equipment for the weekend
· went for tea at the local coffee shop with my hubby

8 things I wish I could do:
· travel all the time
· live past 100
· speak french fluently
· play the drums like a superstar
· be a better swimmer
· eat whatever i wanted and not gain any weight
· cook like a chef
· do big air tricks on my snowboard

8 shows I watch:
· Arrested Development (on DVD, since its now over... sadness)
· It's Only Sunny In Philadelphia
· The Hour (with George Strombopolous - love him!)
· Flight of the Conchords
· 30 Rock
· Lost
· Gossip Girl (yes, it's a bad guilty pleasure) 
· Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations

Hmmm... perhaps that was all too much information. Do you have a random fact you'd like to share? ;)

No random facts right now. It's interesting reading these posts though!

So fun to learn more about you and to see your collage from the 90's. :)
I, too, love Arrested Development, would love to cook like a chef and travel more.

Very interesting post, I love to hear about people's interests! I also love gardening, traveling, and all of those t.v. shows! Your collages are so cool! What printer are you thinking about getting? I need one also!

Bianca said...

you have great taste! I too want to travel all the time, speak better french, and was deeply saddened by the loss of arrested development. They're working on a movie though! Oh and it's always sunny, best EVER.
