Apparently I’ve been tagged…

Thanks to SharePoint Dan/UVAGeek for tagging me. Something to get the mind wandering a little on this beautiful, cold winter solstice.

8 TV Shows I Watch
  1. Scrubs. I had never watched an episode until the summer of 2007. Now I own all seven seasons on DVD. It's been moved to ABC and hopefully will end it's eight-year run properly now (NBC really screwed Bill Lawrence over). It's remained well-written and funny throughout the years. Kudos to Bill.
  2. 30 Rock. Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin. *giggle*
  3. Saturday Night Live. It's still funny, usually. I'm going to miss Amy Poehler.
  4. 60 Minutes. We always watched it at home when I was a child. I think it made me appreciate good journalism all the much more.
  5. Dead Like Me. It's no longer on TV, but I just discovered it so it's new to me. Dark, funny commentary on the human existence.
  6. The Simpsons. Sure, I don't watch recent episodes every time they're on. But I have through season eight on DVD and it still makes me laugh. Purple monkey dishwasher.
  7. Lost. A simple (yet complex) pleasure.
  8. Moonlighting. Probably the best thing ABC ever produced. And my favorite show of all time. It's got David Addison. Enough said.
8 Favorite Restaurants
  1. Le Mistral. Only been there once, but I'd eat there weekly if we could afford it.
  2. 2941. Also only been there once, but ooo la la!
  3. Rabieng. One of the best Thai places ever. 
  4. 2 Amys. Warren, where are you?
  5. The Italian Store. Right alongside 2Amys for the best pizza around.
  6. Sushi Taro. Best sushi I've had in the DC area, besides the sushi counter at the Harris Teeter. :-)
  7. Bojangles. Still love that greasy fried chicken.
  8. Sammy T's. Have to make a pit-stop in Fredericksburg anytime we're driving up or down I-95. Always good food and lots of vegetarian choices too.
8 Things That Happened To Me or That I Did Today
  1. Was woken up multiple times by poor, sickly Zachary. He has yet another yucky cold.
  2. Cleaned up the attic. (Yesterday was basement cleanup and classic technology reorganization day.)
  3. Updated Windows Live One Care with a new prepaid subscription. That'll be the last time, seeing that Microsoft is dropping the product and offering a free anti-virus download sometime next year.
  4. Watched some football!
  5. Got Zachary to sit up, with assistance, for a little while. He's getting stronger.
  6. Prepared some gifts.
  7. Took more Tylenol and Sudafed for this cold that just won't quit.
  8. Lit the menorah for the first night of Hanukkah! Benny enjoyed it. 
8 Things I Am Looking Forward To
  1. Christmas.
  2. Zachary sitting up, crawling, and walking.
  3. Benny mowing the lawn.
  4. Windows 7.
  5. SharePoint 14.
  6. The new PKI module.
  7. A vacation.
  8. Retirement.
8 Things I Wish For
  1. Zachary will sit up, crawl, and walk.
  2. Benny will always be so sweet and silly.
  3. Good friends.
  4. Good neighbors.
  5. Financial security.
  6. A fun car to drive.
  7. A sense of humor.
  8. Sanity.
