Seven List

Yikes! I've been tagged for a meme by the fabulous Ladybug. I've never been tagged before. What should I do? Answer the quiz I guess...

1. Seven things I plan to do before I die
  • Stand atop the misty peak of Machu Picchu
  • Write a book
  • Find inner peace
  • 'Walk like an Egyptian' amidst the pyramids (walking like an Egyptian is very important)
  • Become fluent in a language other than English
  • Unlock the mystery of the universe
  • Visit Russia - lecture Lenin's corpse on the failings of his doctrine
2. Seven things I can do
  • I can swim strongly
  • Self deprecating humor comes very easily to me (there is a lot within my self to deprecate!)
  • I just self deprecated (that sounds rather like pooing in one's pants) whilst stating that I'm good at self deprecating, ergo I can 'do' two things at once
  • I can gargle the Australian anthem. Gross, I know.
  • I can write serviceably
  • I can hold a reasonably competent conversation on politics and global affairs
  • I can dance in complete ignorance of the disapproving stares from around the room

3. Seven things I can't do
  • I can't say goodbye to girls that I love
  • I've never been able to stick to instructions when constructing something
  • Talking with other guys about cars is something I'll never be able to do
  • I have a bad back and, consequently, I can't touch my toes
  • I can't speak another language (yet!)
  • I can't play the banjo with my teeth (nor with my hands for that matter).
  • I can't accept phony, trumped up wars on terror.
4. Seven things that attract me to the opposite sex
  • Mystery
  • A dry sense of humor
  • Intellect
  • individuality
  • A good taste in music, film and literature
  • Quirkiness
  • Well placed tattoos
5. Seven things I say most
  • I have a theory...
  • That is CRAZY!!!
  • Are you serious?
  • Does maniacal laughter count as something a person 'says'? Possibly not, but I laugh maniacally quite a bit...
  • Here comes an avalanche of bullshit...
  • Wowzers! (I haven't been able to stop saying that since I first watched Inspector gadget when I was 12 years old)
  • Hell's bells!
6. Seven celebrity crushes
7. Seven people I want to take this quiz

I say 'yowza' a lot...so almost twinsies.

I guess 'yowza' could be the feminine alternative to 'wowzers'. Twinsies it is!

wayna picchu! WAYNA PICCHU!! :P

seeing as i am still sans-computer at home, i am unable to participate in the meme fun (not that i didn't try burning some time here at work to play along... that whole "7 things you look for in the opposite sex" thing made me question my entire dating history and pulled me off-track enough to dent my brain a little...) ...

but, well, long story short... bad idea. :P

What is going on with the computer thing? Wasn't it covered under your insurance?

Don't worry about the meme thing - I didn't really expect anyone to do it - it is just a good opportunity to give a few other blogs a plug.

I'm sorry if thinking about the opposite sex dented your brain. ;P

it is covered under insurance, but insurance companies being what they are, and $7,000 machine that it was... things are a tad ugly. have to see what they will give me before I put out the moolah for a new one. sigh.
