7 things I want to do before I die:
Own an apartment along the Seine in Paris, preferably East Bank so my view is the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris, and everything else on that side of the river.
Learn Japanese
Travel Asia
Own multiple awesome cars
An entire Tori Amos tour
Live in NYC
Have sex in every state of the union

7 things I cannot do:
Speak a non-Indoeuropean language
Sit still through church meetings
Desire to sit still through church meetings
Go to "extra church" without a bad attitude (This would include any Saturday meetings, firesides, ward and stake correlation meetings, General YW/RS conference sessions.)
Miss an episode of 24 at it's regularly scheduled hour
Drink white milk or eat mayonnaise that is blatantly out there in all of its globby, gross, icky sounding glory. I can ingest mayo (AND MIRACLE WHIP...THEY ARE THE SAME!) only when used sparingly in chicken and tuna salad, if it is the base of really good ranch dressing, and in some amazing tartar sauce.
Touch raw meat. GROSS!

7 things that attracted me to my spouse (Okay, 7 things that WOULD attract me to my spouse if I had one):
His smile
The mischievous grin he gets when he knows what I'm thinking and wants to put my thoughts into action.
We have the same sense of humor. He knows exactly what will make me laugh.
His giddy laugh.
The way he wears his pants.
When he exerts his authority over my stubborness and pride (without being a total jerk, natch).
The way he strokes my hair.

7 things I look forward to every day
A phonecall to/from Becky, Yolande, Mark, or Jan.
Crossword puzzle
Going to the padres' house and getting love from my cat
Being with friends
Being with parents
Learning something new

"Yo momma's so fat, the horse on her polo shirt is real."


"Yo Momma" cracks me UP! Also, I might be acquiring a slight crush on Señor Valderrama as a result of watching so much of it.

You might be a redneck if...

...the only "decoration" in your wood-paneled living room is a stuffed bobcat.

I went to Arkansas today. Nuff sed.
