Tag- Your It! Bwahahahaha!

The Meme

Karl tagged me a few days ago. He’s one of the sleepers on my blogroll- a very interesting and articulate guy; sometimes dark, sometimes very funny in that earnest young man kind of way that reminds me of my son. I swing by there every four or five days to see how his life is progressing and I’m always rewarded. Anyway, this morning, as predicted I’m slightly hungover- a rarity for me. Same with memes. And today, because I’m a tad ornery, I’m going to tag people, too.

7 things I plan to do before I die:

1. Get my photographs in order
2. Honeymoon at the Hotel at Banff (we haven’t gone on our honeymoon yet.)
3. Avoid cruise ships like the plague
4. Take Ed to Hawaii
5. Snuffle a grandchild
6. Get through menopause, already
7. Bury one parent, help scatter the ashes of the other.
8. Live simply, close to the ocean
9. Learn to count

7 things I can do:

1. Listen
2. Weave and knit
3. Cook
4. Grow things: flowers, food, children
5. Identify many bits and pieces of Mother Earth
6. Emote- in all directions
7. Save money for the future

7 things I cannot do:

1. Mend my children’s hearts when they break
2. Get my hands on a baby Panda
3. Celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary
4. Stop with the cycles, already
5. Golf with only one eye
6. be of constant good cheer
7. get everything done in the day

7 things that attract me to the opposite sex:

1. intelligence
2. a cozy neck (you’re right on this one , Karl!)
3. a ready smile
4. laughter
5. calm
6. reverence
7. irreverence

7 things that I say most often:

1. here kitty, kitty…
2. (wailing…) I miss my baby!
3. RICH!!!!!
4. Can’t anybody else clean the pig but me?
5. I love you
6. Look! Look at that! Did you see that?!
7. TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES!

7 celebrity crushes:

1. This is bad
2. I can’t think of one…hmmm
3. I had a crush on my 7th grade biology teacher…
4. but he wasn’t a celebrity
5. Same with Rich…
6. Maybe Pierce Brosnan in The Thomas Crown Affair
7. Definitely Hoss. (Happy Birthday, buddy!)

Okay, on your mark, get set, go:
Bonnie ,SRP, Mistress Mary,Edgy Mama  AND my lurker from Australia! (Identify yourself! I know you are there, day in and day out…). Please come back and tell me you’ve done it (or that you have no intention of doing it). But I would really like to know these things about you…and you and you and you. So E, Chris, Kimberly, Laura, Angie- go for it. EVERYBODY JUST GOT TAGGED! (creeping back to bed now.)

  1. V., I did this like two weeks ago–twice! So, how are you feeling this morning, girl?

  2. You think you have a headache this morning – just wait until the SPARTANS are finished pummeling the Wolverines. You will indeed be singing the BLUES!

    After I get my SPARTAN game on and take the family to “Salmon Days” and coach a piano quartet I will consider that meme.

    I love getting to know you, Vicki, as you are full of surprises!! Golf with one eye?? Does Rich know that your love runs so deep that it might conquer amblyopia?! Better keep your (good) eye on the (foot)ball today!

  3. Am I that Angie? I was looking for something to post tomorrow. Thanks lol

  4. “Things I say most often” had me laughing.. #4 are you referring to an actual pig? just checking.. because I say that about my HOUSE from time to time.

    Echoing Angie.. Am I the same Laura or is there another one on your list? just checking!!
    and this will give me food for fodder. I have two other posts in mind that I am messing with and they need time to ferment before they go to press… er, blog submission. 😉

    as for #7.. you can’t be of good cheer? Why not? That’s hilarious actually.. in it’s own little weired way. You must really be ornery today! 🙂

  5. Or was it Dr. Laura’s Worst Nightmare that you meant to tag? I just went to her site. That was so entertaining, she is just amazing!

  6. Laura and Angie- it’s you two! I’m just getting to know you and I want to know more! It’s true, Laura- I can’t be of CONSTANT good cheer- but I am actually a pretty cheerful person most days. These days the only things that really set me back are if the kids are upset about one thing or another or HORMONES. I don’t think you’re actually supposed to file petitions for things like this but there are days when I’m muttering, “Dear Lord, PLEASE let me be done with this! At 55 enough is enough!”
    Yes! It’s Millie the guinea pig. She too, has gone on far longer than anyone expected. She’s blind and ancient- but she is always of good cheer. A happier, more stupid creature does not exist. Everyone likes to pet her, hold her and feed her carrots but no one else will clean her.
    Bonnie- I’m sure you’re tortured enough by today’s score- I won’t rub it in even though you came over her to gloat a little early in the day.
    AF- Well, I missed your memes. Or forgot them. I wonder if I commented? This morning I was mildly headache-y and couldn’t think straight- better as the day and football games go on…

  7. OK Vicki, mine is up over at my site. Bye, Bye.

  8. I’m earnest? I saw a play once that suggested that it was very important to be Earnest…

  9. I’m earnest? I saw a play once that suggested that it was very important to be Earnest…

  10. I don’t handle it well if my kids are upset or hurt either and would like to also be of better cheer. I TRY, but don’t always succeed!

  11. i promise that i was NOT stoned when i did the meme thing- despite appearances to the contrary. it’s up on my site. i’m not so good at this yet, but it was kind of fun!

  12. Thanks for more kind words.

    On your list of 7 things to do before you die, you need an addedum in case you pop off before Jan and Bud do:

    “…or, in the alternative, have Bud and Jan bury half my body (like Bud) and cremate the other half (like Jan), and throw the ashes somewhere in Hawaii, but not where I put Ed; that would be unseemly.”

    How come I always have to come to the rescue? Oh, and I see UM nipped Agricultural and Mining on Saturday. Scientists probably are telling Bonnie this is “too bad.”

    I visit two guys in Ozzie land. This is strange. I don’t think your lurker is either one of them, and I’m pretty sure there are only two bloggers in Australia. Maybe your lurker is in Austria and you’re jet-lagged and can’t read it right?

  14. There is a lurker in Austria, but she lurks on mine looking for posts about my brother. HE has a groupie that follows him from country to country going to all his operas. I met her in Florence, Italy and she is a bit strange. It couldn’t be Stephen, he lives in Vienna but he’s been in Germany and Switzerland since July.

    I did an update on the rainbow maker. Found several places online to get them, although I have forgotten where I got Nyssa’s. One had a double crystal…that was interesting.

  15. Ok, mine is up, Vicki.

  16. I’m with you on the cycles and the good cheer thing. Sometimes I think being of constant good cheer is highly overrated and I’m suspicious of folks that can do it. I’d like to improve my average, though.

  17. Alright!@ mine is finally up! sorry about the delay but I was battling a trojan horse problem on the computer all weekend, as well as miscreant family members who must be destroyedddddd… 😉
