how about a pretty picture to distract you?

This week is KILLING ME, so I shall push off posting for another little bit with this meme that I said I would do a month ago. Work is nutso, and I've been feeling a bit under the weather, and this week is also Passover so my inlaws are coming to visit, and my house looks like I dumped all the closets out into my living room. Help me?

Seven Things To Do Before I Die (umm, this is really hard!):
1. Have a child (by any means)
2. Travel to Egypt
3. Live abroad for a lengthy period of time
4. Become a professor
5. Write a book
6. Love myself and stop criticizing
7. Be happy

Seven Things I Cannot Do:
1. Hurt someone intentionally
2. Be confrontational
3. Hit someone
4. Stop procrastinating
5. Sleep without a blanket
6. Skydive, or do anything that has to do with heights
7. Be away from Josh for a great length of time

Seven Things That Attract Me to Blogging:
1. Clearly, the fame.
2. Sneaking a peek into someone else's life
3. A creative outlet to my often uncreative worklife
4. The friends!
5. The wonderful writers I read daily
6. The advice and comments
7. Umm, the fame again?

Seven Things I Say Most Often:
1. Motherhumper! (I say this one a lot)
2. Sweetie, can you...?
3. Tango, NO!
4. Look at what Murray (or Tango) is doing!
5. I love you!
6. Tout de la fruit (when I say goodbye)
7. Ojo! (I say this with a smirk and pulling down the edge of one of my eyes- it means "watch it!" in Spanish)

Seven Books I Love:
1. A Gift From the Sea
2. The DaVinci Code
3. Harry Potter(all of them)
4. Pride and Prejudice
5. Dereliction of Duty (made me love history)
6. The Secret Garden
7. To Kill a Mockingbird

Seven Movies/DVDs That I Can Watch Over and Over Again:
1. Dirty Dancing
2. Notting Hill
3. Sex and the City Seasons
4. Friends Seasons
5. Lord of the Rings
6. Scream
7. The Exorcist

And now seven other people need to do it, but I have no idea who has and hasn't done it. Someone? Anyone?

I'll bite. I just did it for the first time. Thanks!

Nancy said...

I love Notting Hill too. Makes me want to go back to London again... sigh.

I also want to learn to stop criticizing myself before I die. I hope I live for a very long time so I can get that wish fulfilled. ;-)

I could never answer all those questions. I'm just not that deep!

This was so fun. I love OJO! ha ha ha I haven't done this exact one, so I just might.

Hope you have a nice week y que se te tranquile la vida un poco.

now I loved Notting Hill, but I found it great that Mike loves it too...I bought it for "us" and it cool when I walk in the room to find him watching it. I have a movie "soul mate" I think at times.

funny, I used "almuerzo" in an email to you (I may have mispelled - it's been a few years)and no idea if you knew spanish. apparently I'm psychic.

Thanks for stopping by my site! Yes, I love Confederacy of Dunces. Weird, I know. But, I'm from Louisiana, so that's the major connection.

I like the 7 Things I Say Most Often. It reveals so much about you ... I can imagine what it must be like to chat with you in person now. You sound just that much more fun now! ;)

I don't quite get the "6. Tout de la fruit (when I say goodbye)"

hmmm.....methinks it requires some explanation..:*)

Fun to read these types of lists...they're great to help us get to know our favorite internets!
