All the small things.
Do you want to play?

A se7en nation army couldn't hold me down.

I knew as soon as I read this meme on Blogography that I was eventually going to get nailed with it.  Surprised it wasn't Dave himself who did it.  But it was still stuck to me by SJ.  So, here goes...

Se7en things I plan to do before I die:

  1. Have kids.  Helps to be alive to do this.
  2. Tool around Europe and Australia with Katie.
  3. Have some movie reviews published in a newspaper or magazine and not just my Web site.
  4. Buy a motorcycle.  I'm sure Katie is saying "over my dead body" right about now.
  5. Be league champion in both fantasy baseball and fantasy football.
  6. Rebuild a muscle car ('69 GTO preferably).
  7. Strengthen my Spanish speaking ability and learn another foreign language.

Se7en things I can do:

  1. Write what I consider to be fair movie and book reviews.
  2. Love my wife.
  3. Enjoy life.
  4. Understand, for the most part, what is being said when I watch Telemundo.
  5. Cook.
  6. Paint and do some minor work around the house.
  7. Learn just about anything that someone is willing to teach me.

Se7en things I cannot do:

  1. Stand Tom Cruise and Kate Cruise right about now.
  2. Work on a car other than to check fluid levels and change tires.
  3. Tolerate spiders.
  4. Vote Republican (for the moment; gimme McCain and that could change).
  5. Listen to or look at pictures of Britney Spears.
  6. Drive stick shift (I'm in the same boat as you, SJ).
  7. Afford to buy a new Mac... yet.

Se7en things that I find really attractive in the opposite sex:

  1. Sense of humor.  Katie has a great one.
  2. Eyes.
  3. Lips and kissing ability.
  4. Athletic ability (don't need to be a world-class sprinter; just willing to be active).
  5. Voice.
  6. Legs.
  7. Breasts (Katie insists I'm a "boob man").

Se7en things I say the most:

  1. "What'd I do now?"
  2. "I love you"
  3. "Literally, figuratively, and everything in between."
  4. "Yeah, okay, whatever."
  5. "Bite me."
  6. "English speak well very I."
  7. "Sunset Racquetball and Fitness Center.  This is Kevin.  How can I help you?" - although the frequency is down quite a bit from what it used to be.

Se7en books I love:

  1. Lamb, the Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore.
  2. Gates of Eden by Ethan Coen.
  3. Different Seasons by Stephen King.
  4. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.
  5. Dune by Frank Herbert.
  6. Last Breath: Cautionary Tales from the Limits of Human Endurance by Peter Stark.
  7. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold.

Se7en (minus four) people I would like to see answer these questions:

  1. Johnny C at A Mind Awake
  2. Kazza
  3. Carol at Shopping for Sanity - might have to e-mail her this one; not sure how involved in the blogosphere she is anymore.
