Tagged again: 8 Things

I once said no mo' memes, but I was tagged by Competitive Eating Sensation Steakbellie to share 8 various Things with you, and I've got big plans to embed myself in his entourage when he's famous, so I'd rather not jeopardize a viable future of globetrotting sycophantasm.

8 passions in my life
Formula 1

8 things to do before I die:
Daniel Craig
Rob a bank and buy a ticket to an F1 race.
Travel to New Zealand and Australia.
Have my photos published in a popular magazine. Like Hustler.
Pay off my Visa.
Stop putting Baby in a corner.
Invade Holland (and take their stash).
Eliminate strollers on public transit. (Slogan: Got a fucking kid? Get a fucking car.)

8 things I often say
Get off me.
I'll have another.
Bitch, you're killing me.

8 Books I read recently

8 people who I'm passing this on to
Bitch, you're killing me.

When did you become friends with Morgan Spurlock? I liked that "30 Days" show.

Formula 1 before cocktails and porn? That's a [some term for something illegal in Formula 1 that I'm too lazy to look up].

I feel like our lives and goals are diametrically opposed, Ms. Rocket. For example, you love Rush.

Also, I plan on keeping Baby in a corner for the rest of her life even though I know damn well the only time she truly feels alive is when she's dancing.

Furthermore, there were no porn mags in your book list.

I am going to try and accept your differences, but we all know how good I am at that.

I didn't list my 8 things in order of importance. I think we can all assume at this point that porn and cocktails are vital to my existence.

The f1 term you were looking for is "black flag"

Who is Morgan Spurlock? And where can I buy a t-shirt that says "Who is Morgan Spurlock?"

I believe that's the guy who did "SuperSize Me." Mr. Steakbellie is a dead ringer for said man, though it could just be that I've only seen 2 dudes with that sort of goatee in the past decade.

Leonesse said...

I think it is a stunning reverse goatee.

Next time, maybe you should combine your love of cocktails and F1 racing with your hatred of strollers. Just grab the stroller as soon as they are off the bus and try for the pole position. It could bring some real interest to your day.

Snooze said...

Great lists. And I like how Daniel Craig fits in.

The Guv'ner said...

I love those asses who insist on taking that stroller on the subway at 8:45 in the morning rush hour. Thanks for that, people. You couldn't wait till 9? NO?

I don't get the Daniel Craig love. I have several friends who'd beat you to a bloody pulp over him but I'm all "Meh. Seen better." Because the Guv'ner is a freaking supermodel herself.

Baby needs a knee to her knackers.

Morgan Spurlock's doctor in the movie SUPERSIZE ME is my doctor. He's a little, fat, bearded South African who mumbles. The doc, not Morgan. Though after all that Mickey D's who knows?

Dale said...

I like that '30 Days' show too! I also like the qualities of generosity and cool hair. And porn. And stuff.

steakbellie said...

I'll bet we could have a very interesting conversation comparing your F1 racing to my Bicycle Racing.

Of course we'd have to be all kinds of fucked up first.

I think I'd do Daniel Craig too.

Hustler is a very popular magazine in the Miller home.
