seven things tag

this post is not cancer-related per say but ties in with my earlier post about living each day to the fullest. thanks to hope for including me with this.

seven things to do before i die:

1. run and finish a marathon
2. learn how to cook fancy and impossibly rich desserts
3. travel outside of the united states
4. hike in denali national park, alaska
5. find a job/career that is challenging and fulfilling
6. renew vows with my hubby
7. move back to hawaii

seven things i cannot do:

1. make a "poker face"
2. deal with being lied to
3. eat red meat (i grew up on a dairy farm and had many cows as 4h projects/pets as a child)
4. sing, although i like to pretend that i can
5. see an animal in a shelter or rescue without wanting to adopt it
6. deal with overly excitable people
7. listen to those who tell me that i can't or shouldn't do something that i want to do

seven things that attract me to my husband:

1. his eyes and the emotion that they show
2. his strength
3. his willingness to support me on whatever crazy mission i'm on at the moment
4. his hands
5. his warm and strong bear-hugs
6. he's always honest with me, even when the honest answer is not the one that i may want to hear
7. through his journey with leukemia, he and i have learned a little about what is and is not important in life. and i feel lucky for that every single day.

seven things i say most often:

1. "no worries"
2. "i love you"
3. "that is not ok!!" (to my kids at work, when they are being slightly less than angelic)
4. "whatever we gotta do"
5. "ok...what now?"
6. "how ya doin'?"
7. "no worries" (this is spoken often enough in one day that it warrants having two places on the list.)

seven books or series i love:

1. "lullaby" by chuck palahniuk
2. "god bless you, dr. kevorkian" by kurt vonnegut
3. "diary" by chuck palahniuk
4. "america: the book" by the daily show writers
5. "the kid" by dan savage
6. "i want to grow hair, i want to grow up, i want to go to boise," by erma bombeck
7. "the prince of tides" by pat conroy

seven movies i would watch over and over again:

1. eternal sunshine of the spotless mind
2. kill bill #1
3. kill bill #2
4. silence of the lambs
5. dogma
6. chasing amy
7. clerks

seven bloggers to tag:
minerva, being made, and lori, who are all remarkable women. and anyone else who is inspired to write their own list after seeing mine, if there's anyone out there.

Chasing Amy made my movie list too. There are so many good lines in that movie and so many deep things to think about.
