7 x 7

Simon went and tagged me to do this meme, So here goes, here it is.

Seven things to do before I die:

Visit Australia & New Zealand
And Canada and China
Revisit Mexico
Retire and enjoy it
See my children grown, happy, healthy & succesful
Be totally debt free & solvant enough not to worry
Have time to read all the books I want to

Seven things I cannot do

Eat cucumber
Live without Insulin
Tolerate Bigots
Afford to go on a Foreign Holiday
Paint a wall (even though my father is a painter and decorator and keeps trying to teach me)
Touch the end of my nose with my tongue
Not check my blog every day

Seven things that attract me to my wife:

Love of Literature
Ability to express herself
Long dark hair
Courage of her convictions

Seven things I say most often:

Can I have the news on now?
(insert employer's name here) are idiots!
You're beautiful/clever/fantastic (to the kids)
Yay you (to the kids)
Can we go to Mexico?
can I have.....(insert gadget here)

Seven books, or series, that I love:
This one was difficult (just like for Mrs.A) because I love all books. We own nearly 3000 books, and all of them are great.

The Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett
The Belgariad/The Malloreon - David Eddings
The Deverry series by Katherine Kerr
The Wheel of Time Series - Robert Jordan
JRR Tolkien
Bill Bryson
The Dragon Stories by Anne McCafferry

Seven movies I watch over and over again:
This one was difficult because I just watch so many

The Blues Brothers
Pirates of the Caribbean
The Princess Bride
Strictly Ballroom
The Empire Strikes Back
Local Hero

Other Seven's meme's I know about:
Mrs Aginoth

Never done this one and probably never will! Yours is very very interesting and you and Mrs. A are sure well matched, Mr. A.

I think you have my same library. Particularly the Dragon Stories. Those are comfort books for me.

Nice list! I'll pop in from time to time. Tryin to learn how to blog. Well, blog and not bore everyone (including me). :)

Gosh...I just had to answer the door, and it was a solicitor. When I told him to go away, he told me to F**** myself.

Well! When did salepeople get so-rude? It's gated for Crissakes. You broke into my apartmentproperty, essentially.

It is so nice to see a man say he likes long DARK hair! So few like brunette hair (like I had).

Do you really like the Deverry series, Aginoth? It's all a bit ... crap to me. Other stuff good though! (in my ever-so-humble opinion, of course).

I tried to watch the Princess Bride with my four year-old. He got scared in the fire swamp, and I had to turn it off. Great movie. Can't say I agree with your other choices!

Michele sent me today.

PS We have some things in common. We both ramble, and neither of us can afford 'foreign holidays' yet would love to do so!

You'll have to come to Canada with the missus. We're going to go skiing then watch the Princess Bride!
