I LOVED Journey. Now I have that song in my mind. I'll do my 8's. That should be fun.

Great list. I don't really like doing lists like this because some of the categories are hard if I'm honest, but I think everyone should at least think about what their answers would be (even if they don't post them on their blog). It helps us grow.
