I hope you don't mind but I borrowed your idea.

I read your other comment you left (btw, thanks) and was wondering if you're an insomniac too. I can never sleep. If I get 5 hours of sleep then it's considered a "good night".

Any day you can mention trips to Manila, Singapore & Istanbul in one post is a good day.

I must, however, think about the 8 things.

I am going to have a hard time with you right now because of the Istanbul trip. Yes, I am insanely jealous.

I am not sure if I can come up with 8 things right now because my Sudafed is wearing off, but right now I am glad for Ben n Jerry's ice cream (most flavors), my dvd player and my friends. And that I have not sneezed in a whole hour and I still have Kleenex.

PS. I tagged you for a meme and then neglected to tell you. Oh Relyn, that goes for you, too. You have to complete this before you go to Istanbul.

Hmm.
I forgot all about 08/08/08.
And now it's 09/08/08.

But I was well aware as a photographer that it was THE DAY for weddings...the whole infinity thing and all.
