Crazy 8's

Both Olga, the Traveling Bra, and Meleah tagged me for the Crazy 8's meme. Great minds think alike, right? So here I go.

8 Things I’m Passionate About:
My family
Cultural Identity
Freedom of Choice

8 Things I Say Often:
I love you
I'm here
I'm tired
I'm hungry

8 Books I’ve Read Recently:
Lately, I have started many books, and not finished any of them. The last books I remember reading from cover to cover were the first five novels in The Dresden Files series, The Tipping Point and Stumbling on Happiness. And I am halfway through The Dew Breaker.

8 Things I want To Do Before I Die:
Visit the ruins of Pompeii
Travel to Buenos Aires
Write a book of short stories
Go back to school for fun
Do pottery
Take a road trip across the continental US
Learn Catalan

8 Songs I can listen to over and over again:
Ten Years Go By
Beast of Burden
Boricua en la luna
Ahora me despido
Plany al Mar
Periodico de ayer

8 things that attract me to my friends:
A dry sense of humor
An open mind
A sense of adventure

8 things I learned in the last year:
I am fickle, and that's OK
I like blogging
There is a lot of pervs out there
When in doubt, it's better to take a risk than do nothing at all
Home improvement projects are a colossal source of stress
I really, really hate wall-to-wall carpets
I am not invincible (go ahead, laugh)
My move to Texas, seven and a half years ago, has changed me. I sometimes don't know if I fit anywhere.


  1. Damn.

    I forgot to include on my own list: family, I love you, and fuck...

    Oh well.

    NICE JOB Grrl.

    Thanks for playing!


    (Olga and I do think alike!)

  2. You did a great job on this meme, Ingrid! Again, I learned more about you, how you think, how you feel, and how you see yourself. There is so much I can relate to. I hope that as time goes on, you begin to find your comfort zone in the new life you created when you moved here from the island. Every year brings changes and new understanding. I'm determined that 2008 is going to be my best ever!

  3. I thought this meme was kinda tough...but you did a great job! Beast of there's a song I can relate to!

  4. I was just chuckling at your post about the keyword searches that get people to your blog.

    My personal favorites for my blog are naked doctor's girlfriend and
    girlfriend sleep sex. Also, being Indian and dating a white guy--it seems to bring interesting people to my blog. :-P

    I just found your blog and I look foward to reading more. :-P

    Happy Holidays!
