Taking a Page from Jules' and ~D's Blogs....

I saw this thread on Jules' and Danna's blog, and since I'm currently at a loss for words (a rarity), I thought, 'why not?'

7 things I would like to do before I die:
1. Dance at my sons weddings - all 3 sons (and hopefully only 1 wedding each).
2. Lose another 20 lbs.
3. Find my 'art' (am I painter? writer? actress?).
4. Get over my "house-envy"and learn to love the little tiny, dinky box I have that, by the way, stood up admirably to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
5. Find a really good fitting pair of jeans (see previous posts).
6. Learn to read - and understand - the Bible ... or at least parts of it.
7. Quit worrying so much about what 'other people' think.

7 things I cannot do:
1. Cook.
2. Remember shit.
3. Keep my mouth shut (but I'm getting better).
4. Dance. Elaine Benes on 'Seinfeld' (Julia Louis-Dreyfous' character) has *nothing*on me!
5. Speak in public - sweaty palms, knots in the stomach, nausea....
6. See without glasses or contacts (stealing Danna's reply. I'm legally blind.)
7. Let go of the past.

7 things that attract me about other people
1. Sense of humor
2. Honesty
3. Compassion
4. Openness to other peoples' ideas
5. Sense of adventure
6. Intelligence (but not the hoity-toity kind)
7. As old fashioned as it seems, a sense of honor, duty and loyalty (as long as it's not misplaced).

7 things I say most often:
1. Zachary Daniel!!!!!
2. Go to Sleep!!!!
3. I'm sorry.
4. I love you.
5. I don't THINK so!
6. Give Momma a kiss....
7. "Dear God, (fill in the blank)".

7 Favorite Celebrities:
1. Ioan Griffudd
2. Billy Boyd
3. Christopher Meloni
4. Sean Connery
5. This is a hard subject!!!!!

7 Guilty Pleasures
1. Cha-Cha-Chocolate ice cream. Save-1 Grocery's generic brand. It had chocolate brownie chunks, chocolate bits, and a ribbon of cinnamon - I ate a lot of it during my evacuation to Lafayette, LA.
2. Iced Caffe Mocha (decaf and skim)
3. Watching "Dancing with the Stars" - John O'Hurley and Charlotte were robbed!
4. Watching "RockStar INXS" - I can't believe they picked JD over Marty or Mig!
5. Tom & Jerry Cartoons (better yet, The Pink Panther)
6. Bubble Baths
7. Gift-with-Purchase Time at the make up counter of my favorite dept. store

7 people I want to do this list:
1. Jules, who already did
2. Sugar
3. Danna, who already did
4. Renee
5. Lisa
6. Erika
7. Andy (good luck with that one)

I keep needing to update mine... came up with a few good more! I don't know who those celebrities are except for Sean Connery!

Billy Boyd is the Scottish actor who played "Pippin" in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I saw him in a little independent film several years ago and became a fan. Ioan Griffudd is a Welsh actor - my kids and I like the A&E "Horatio Hornblower" series. He played the title character. Unfortunately, he decided to sink his career with such films as 102 Dalmations and The Fantastic Four. I'm not esp. attracted to Sean Connery, but he's a good actor.

Oh and Christopher Meloni is on Law & Order: SVU. The tall cranky looking dark haired guy.

Sugar said...

Y'all! I did mine! :)
