Seven things

Seven sevens:

1. Seven things to do before I die:
        Go to London
        Publish a novel
        Drive a Miata
        Go to Thailand to visit my missionary relatives
        See the Grand Canyon
        Drive across the country
And one more thing: Take a trip or do something cool with my best friend before she dies.

2. Seven things I cannot do:
        Higher math
        Hammer a nail straight
        Walk and (zip coat, roll sleeves, chew gum -- fill in routine task here) at the same time
        Think of the perfectly cutting thing to say at the perfect time to say it (see "You've Got Mail")
        Back a car in a straight line
        Parallel park
        Understand the attraction of NASCAR

3. Seven things that attract me to my husband (or significant other or best friend):
        His wacky sense of humor
        How he listens to me
        His encouragement of me
        His kiss
        His way with our kids
        His passion for God
        His intelligence

4. Seven things I say most often:
        Good grief
        Good night!
        Holy cow!
        Anyway …
        Well duh
        Stop fighting
        Go to school

5. Seven books (or series) I love
        The Lord of the Rings
        The Left Hand of Darkness
        The Chronicles of Narnia
        Little Women
        Jane Eyre
        To Kill a Mockingbird
        Peace Like a River


6. Seven movies I watch over and over again (or would watch over and over again if I had the time):
        The Goodbye Girl
        Tootsie
        While You Were Sleeping
        A Charlie Brown Christmas
        About a Boy
        Safe Passage
        Notting Hill

7. Seven people I want to join in, too:
        Megan
        Gary
        Brad
        Rebecca
        (I can't seem to think of anyone else ...)

I would also love to visit London, but am afraid it would be disappointing. But how could it be? :-)
We used to live between two NASCAR fan families. There would be trails of people with potluck going into their houses some races weekends. We didn't get it, either. It's a race between machines, for goodness' sake!

And the thing that gets me is that the cars are driving in circles! Maybe it's fun if you're there, but why on earth would you want to watch cars go in circles on TV?

London is great. I went there for the first time last March and it was better than I imagined. The Tube's a little rough around the edges, but the rest is fantastic. I can't wait to go back

Those races were invented by men. Who don't take directions from anyone when driving. Think about it.
