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

7 books I love:
Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
The Harry Potter series by you-know-who
A Year in the Merde by Stephen Clarke
Les fleurs du mal by Charles Baudelaire
Dictionnaire des idées réçues by Gustave Flaubert
L'aventure ambigüe by Chekh Hamidou Kane

7 Movies I Could Watch Over and Over:
Waiting for Guffman
Best in Show
This is Spinal Tap
Drop Dead Gorgeous
Galaxy Quest
and many, many more.

7 People From Whom I'd like to hear 7 Sevens of their own choosing if they can be bothered:

The OED is a legend.
And Paris sounds good, although the Îles seem nicer (and hugely more exensiver).

And as for stuffed bobcats....

Dang it! I've been 7'd!

OED!! OED! I adore the OED. Dad has the compact at his office. I could sit there and read it for weeks on end.

It is fascinating. I plan to own the whole shabang one of these days. That's a really nerdy goal to have, but one of the coolest at the same time.

I very much like your goals. I'd settle for having sex 50 times in one state.

At 14:10, Blogger Kiki said...

Yes, but I plan on having a map on a corkboard on my wall. People will come in and see it with the pins or flags or wrappers or whathaveyou in each state, and they'll be all, "What does this mean?" And I can say, "I knew someone there." And they'll be like, "You only know one person in each state?" And I'll be thinking, "Exactly!"

I loved reading what you'd love about your (imaginary) spouse.

Enough is enough! Post another blog! Frances says she wants a new one. I offered her the new crack I scored, but she said no, SHE'S SO UNGRATEFUL.

Has anyone seen my underwear?

You served in San Diego? Did you ever serve in San Marcos?

At 21:43, Blogger Kiki said...

San Marcos is actually part of the Carlsbad mission, so I never served there. I was on the Mexican border areas (Imperial Beach and Yuma, AZ) for 13 months of my mission, and then I was in an area that comprised El Cajon, La Mesa, and Santee. Are you from San Marcos or something?
