General Taggert strikes again

Aaron recently tagged me, and I’ve ignored enough of these requests over the years to finally be inclined to respond to one. I don't know how well I've done, though. Apparently the theme is 8, so here it goes:

8. Thanksgiving—past/present/future

Eight people I tag:
This part always feels creepily like a chain letter or pyramid scheme—even though it’s the only way that these surveys get perpetuated—so how about if you’re reading this, consider yourself next up. No pressure, though.

Is the T.V. list really true? I know Golden Girls is your favorite but you don't seem like a Gossip/Gilmore girl type. I realize things aren't always what they seem.
