7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 Things

Angie http://www.bigredcouch.com/journal tagged me to do this meme, so here goes:
Edit: I just got an email from a friend who read this. He wrote his lists for me and added a new section: 7 people whom I would like to kiss my butt. It was so funny! Feel free to add a bonus round to your lists too!
Seven things I hope to do before dying:
1. See the Pyramids
2.Tour all of Egypt and cruise down the Nile
3. Visit Italy and Greece.
4. Watch my baby get married
5. Be alive for the birth of all grandchildren to come
6. Be debt free
7. Meet some of my fellow bloggers.

Seven things I can do:
1. Arrange flowers
2. Play the piano
3. Draw stuff
4. Grow stuff
5. Run my business
6. Sew
7. Read 2-3 books at the same time
8. (Had to do 8): talk, talk, talk

Seven things I cannot do:
1. Swim well
2. Give a sick cat a pill
3. Cook well
4. Suffer fools easily
5. Sleep standing up
6. Higher math
7. Lower math
8. Know when to shut up (see # 8 above!)

Seven things that attract me to the opposite sex:
1. Intelligence
2. Straight, clean teeth
3. Good hair (or none at all)
4. A pleasing disposition and a streak of humor
5. Reasonably color coordinated
6. If they dance well, I'm putty in their hands
7. Cleanliness is a requirement!

Seven things I say most often:
1. Let the cats out, please
2. Hand me the remote control, please
3. I told you about that last week! Oh, yes I did!
4. What did you say? (I'm hard of hearing, sometimes)
5. Let the cats in, honey
6. I'm sorry, will you repeat that, please? (see above)
7. Hello, Baby (to my younger daughter, on the phone)

Seven celebrity crushes:
1. James Spader
2. Richard Gere
3. John Travolta (as Vinnie)
4. Paul McCartney (in 1963)
5. I just can't think of anyone else right now.
6.The young Al Pacino.

Wow, I feel I know you better. I love blogging and meeting so many interesting people like you!

Michele sent me, but I would have visited anyway :)

I know you can do math if you run your business..I know, it's just humility. I can give a cat a pill but can't draw or arrange flowers worth anything. If you visit Italy you can bypass Sicily. My brother was there for a couple of months and he wasn't impressed. Florence, however is another matter. I could have stayed there for six months and not seen everything.

I had to laugh at the things you say most often...my mom and dad go at it about what they told each other and what they didn't. Both are a little hard of hearing. Mom has one hearing aid and Dad needs one.

Have a good week.

Yet more proof that lists are a good thing - both for those who write them, and for those who read them.

Thanks for the insight, Judy. I need to do some dreaming, too.

Visiting from Michele's while my wife smiles at me from across the room. Surreal and cool, all at the same time.

Jamie Dawn said...

I'm with you on wanting to visit Italy and Greece.
It's the romantic in us, I guess.

I'm sure you are a good cook. I can't imagine you not being a good cook!

Great list! I wish I could play the piano. I began lessons as a child but had to quit due to time and distance.

Mar said...

Let's see: Visit the Pyramids, cruise the Nile, visit Italy and Greece, marry off the child, swamp the grandchildren with presents, get out of debt....

You see any conflict here?

Nice. Interesting.

Laura said...

hey, i learned to give a cat a pill when I worked for a veterinarian years ago. I was terrified the first time I had to do it. cats are ornery when they DONT want to be part of what you're shoving down their throat. lol

great list! I was also surprised to see # 4 on things you cannot do, i put the same thing down! ^5! :)

great list, Judy! keep playing that piano too.

"Good hair (or none at all)"

I like that one. I qualify. LOL

I posted 10 things about aspen today. Maybe I'll do this one when I get home. This is the first time I've been able to blog visit in about a week! It feels good to say HELLO!

Arethusa said...

Oh can I relate to the blabbing syndrome. I just don't know when to shut it. Great answers for the meme kenju!

How about that Jude Law? I had to dump him post-adultery myself.

Huw said...

Can anyone give cats pills easily? Not me.

Here's hoping you get all of that first 7 done!
