Like I have time for this...

Men women love to love often turn into men who do things that piss us off. Douglas, I just became buddies with you today. It's way too early in our "relationship" for a meme. Sigh. (And grin.)

Seven Things To Do Before I Die:

1. Kids through college.
2. Walk around my clean house wondering how the kids (now 7, 3, and 1) grew up so fast.
3. A week at the Four Seasons, Boston
4. (tearing a page from Douglas) Win the lottery and send all of y'all up to Boston with me for a first class blogger party.
5. Actually exercise every once in a while. (see number 2 for my excuse)
6. Four words: Knitting. Cruise. Greece. Alone. (or with Akabini, Dena, and AL)
7. Scott Simon or Al Franken interview me about Blue Gal and I make them laugh.

Seven Things I Cannot Do:

1. Botox. Ever. I earned this face, get it?
2. Knit all the yarn in my stash.
3. Spend less time blogging (apparently).
4. Declutter my house (also apparently).
5. Respect George W. Bush or anyone with a W sticker. (again from Douglas)
6. Say "bless yer heart" as an insult. Southerners have a way with that.
7. Forget my friends, living or dead. I don't know what I do to deserve you. Yeah, even you, Douglas.

Seven Things That Attract Me To My Spouse (or Significant Other, Best Friend, etc.)

1. His intelligence.
2. He gets the job done. A wonderful writer.
3. Smart enough to listen to me.
4. Understands me most of the time.
5. Endures my moods. (but that is so mutual it's hard to credit him)
6. Is the jealous type, but tries to hide it. I like that.
7. Loves the kids as much as I do.

Seven Things I Say (or Write) Most Often:

1. Panties, panties, panties. (while blogging)
2. Do you have poop? Are you poopie?
3. Sleep. I'm going to sleep now.
4. No.
5. Yes, I did kiss you goodnight.
6. Sigh, I should be knitting (while blogging.)
7. You ARE poopie!

Seven Books (or Series) I love: (hopefully authors count)

1. Jane Austen
2. Elizabeth Berg before she was discovered by Oprah
3. Wiggles videos
4. Douglas Adams
5. Captain Underpants
6. Margaret Atwood. I won't commit suicide as long as she might write another book.
7. the original Poldark.

Seven Movies I Would Watch Over and Over Again:

1. Pimpernel Smith, a wonderful Leslie Howard WWII propaganda yarn.
2. Truly, Madly, Deeply. (but it bumped Brief Encounter off the list)
3. Tammy and the Batchelor, 'cause it's a big dumb movie.
4. Sound of Music and Pillow Talk, again with the big dumb movies (tie).
5. Meet John Doe
6. The Apartment. The heroine is named Fran and it's wonderful.
7. The latest Pride and Prejudice. I really, really loved it.

Seven People I Want To Join In (Be Tagged)

Primarily because I'd love to know more about them. So I hope I'm not pissing them off:

1. AL, admit it, you'd be mad if I left you out. You tag Karen, okay?
2. Abby
3. Yoga (panties, panties, panties)
4. Hey Jenny Slater
5. Blogenfreude
6. Sp3yyclad
7. And he won't be able to answer seriously, but go ahead, Michael Gregory Steele. We'd love to hear all about it.


  1. I love Tammy and the Doctor. Like, LOOOOOOOVE.

    I shall now hang my head in shame.

  2. As a kid, I used to watch Pillow Talk over and over again. How I ended up not gay, I'll never know. Anyway, I don't have a good enough body to be gay.

    I'm glad you're not too tweaked about the meme. Just think how good it will feel to get me back.

  3. Blue Gal, I'll get started on the list!

    Yoga "Loves Panties" Korunta

  4. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  5. Knitting cruise around Greece... ...ah.... ...can we do it when all those beautiful kids are grown? I'll be a bit distracted until then... I foresee your oldest and mine making it into independence at about the same time :-)

    And knitting up your stash: Stephaniesays that if you've reached stash acquisition beyond life expectancy (SABLE), this does not mean you have to stob buying yarn; only that you have to update your will!

    (Lovely memories from Cyprus... ...a honeymoon involving a youth hostel, way too much hiking, and not getting to the project at hand, which involved translating, I kid you not, book 1 of the Illuminatus trilogy. Misplanning, much? But the main errand, getting married, was achieved admirably.)

  6. Didn't know if you'd check back on the comments at my place, but as long as we're on the subject of gay blogs, check out Faggoty-Ass Faggot. He's funny as hell.

  7. Not that you really need more political blogs on your blogroll, but you might want to check out Jeff Huber's blog, Pen and Sword. He has a unique perspective, and he's on the side of the angels.

  8. nope ... not pissed off. but I am going to send you some of my medication. swallow it with vodka, or a nice white burgundy if you must ...

  9. F.A.F. is hilarious...thanks for the tips, Douglas. And Blogenfreude, what makes you think I don't have your medication in the economy size? BTW, have you tried Tanqueray 10 yet?

  10. Men women love to love are often men who love to love other men.

    Makes me wonder why we're all not gay.

    Would be far less complicated.

  11. You know I'd do anything for you, BG. But, I can't sit on any GD-boat, even if it is a cruise ship in the Mediterranean. Hell, I can't even stand a dinner cruise on a lake. I'll meet you anywhere in Greece, though, as long as my feet are on land.

  12. Aieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    Give me a one sentence answer for a meme and I can get it done. This one makes my brain hurt! I have a simple mind.

    Hope you have a good Christmas.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
