Crazy Eights-The Meme

I'm IT, I'm IT.........Remember when we were kids and we played tag in the backyard with all of our friends? Unlike most of those kids I loved being tagged and then being IT. Being IT made me feel special I know this sounds crazy but go with me here. It meant I was the center of attention, everyone looked to me for the next chosen one. I felt important.

Well I've been tagged and now I'm IT. Snooty at Snooty Primadona's Sparkling Outlook tagged me in the Crazy Eights Meme. Thanks Snooty, I love being IT.

Did you really watch all those movies 8 times? I can only think of three maybes: Wizard of Oz, Footloose and Dances With Wolves. I can't think, off the top of my head, of any others I've watched more than 2-3 times.

Hey...thanks for the tag...I will do it at the end of the week:)

Hey, I always liked being *IT* too. I remember playing Kick The Can in our neighborhood alleys until after dark in the summers and those were such good times.

Okay, this is just a guess here... but I'm thinking you must have HAD to watch Dumb & Dumber with some kiddos. I had to but they had to tie me up to make me stay after the 4th time. I love Practical Magic too and still have Rosemary planted by my garden gate for good luck. I'm still waiting.

Great job on the meme and some of the answers surprised me, which always makes me smile.

That is a neat meme!

Treasia said...

Blogarita-Yes I have watched them eight times or more to be honest. Some I may have been forced to watch due to only one tv in the house however.

Snooty-You hit the nail on the head. Dumb and Dumber was the one forced upon me.

Kacey said...

um, you know how you love to be it? I hated being it. Really. Isn't that weird??

Hm, there's a lot of "nice, a**" being said around here too. I'm really a butt person... Little known fact, and there you have it.
