The Sevens

Both tshsmom and Great White Bear say they would have tagged me with this had they known I was back from vacation. I guess I'll be nice and do it anyway. Their lists were slightly different, so since I saw tshsmom's first I'll use hers.

  1. Finish the final Harry Potter book.
  2. Go back to Sedona again.
  3. Meet some other bloggers. (besides the ones I'm related too)
  4. Finish all the half-started books that I have around the house.
  5. Finish the French Course that I got for my birthday a few years ago.
  6. Figure out a lucrative job that I love and can do from home.
  7. Start having real goals so lists like this aren't so hard.


  1. I can sing well.
  2. I can blog.
  3. I can play various musical instruments.
  4. I can do pretty well at the regular Trivial Pursuit.
  5. I can be pretty persuasive at times.
  6. I can use a computer well enough to do what I need to.
  7. I can usually get along with just about anybody.


  1. Program computer software.
  2. Deliberately hurt someone's feelings.
  3. Stay away from my favorite blogs.
  4. Feel comfortable driving in a city that I don't know.
  5. Read/write most of the world's languages.
  6. Not read the whole of the new Harry Potter book the day it comes out.
  7. Most sports. (total klutz here)


  1. A good sense of humor.
  2. Good conversationalist.
  3. A bit of a twisted sense of humor.
  4. Nice ass. (it HAD to be said)
  5. Caring nature.
  6. He doesn't waste his time watching or following sports.
  7. Gentle nature.


  1. Well, technically...
  2. What do you think?
  3. How did this suddenly turn into such an emergency?
  4. Better get back to blogging.
  5. I don't know, what do you want to do?
  6. Is it time to go home yet?
  7. Hi, how are you doing?


  1. Davy Jones (when I was age 10)
  2. John Cowsill (when I was age 12)
  3. Michael J Fox (no more ages listed)
  4. Keanu Reeves
  5. Kurt Russell
  6. Harrison Ford
  7. I can't think of anybody else. I'll let you know if I do.

That's my list. If anyone feels like tagging him- or herself just let me know.

So I'm not the only one with half-finished books lying around?

Hi Ern, there is a leaning tower of books by my bed. That doesn't count the ones that I stuck back in the bookcase. Too much fun doing other things. The worst part is that I sometimes re-read other books that I've already read. Does that say nerd anywhere?

I've seen lots of "The Sevens" postings, and really enjoy that you have made attainable goals!

I believe I've completed the goals I set out for myself as a child, and now I'm in the process of making new goals.

You forgot Mac Davis on your list of celebrity crushes.

Sierrabella, I'm kinda lazy and I don't like to set goals. When I do, I want them to be easy enough that I'll accomplish them. Don't like too much pressure. :-)

Bucky you're lucky I missed you. Ick! Now I'm gonna have "Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me" going through my head. And I didn't like it then, either!

Baby, baby dohn' get hooked on me... OMG! I had not thought of that in y-e-e-a-r-s...and I hadn't missed it, either. But now, thanks to the deadly duo of Bucky and Squirl, it will whine around in my head for the rest of the day.

I'm soooo getting you back -- when you least expect it I'll pop in with a Barry Manilow ditty.

Now you're scared, aren'tcha?!

Damn, forgot ALL about the Cowsills(Barry for me) and Kurt Russell. I've had a crush on KR since I was 8 and he's aging SO WELL!
I'm blessed with a man that doesn't get into pro sports too. Shoulda thought of THAT for MY list too.
As for the Things to Do Before We Die; at our age we've either accomplished them or have lost the idealism(too tiring) to come up with new ones.

Hey! Where's your 7 Songs I'm Currently Digging?

We, the Internet as a Whole, demand to know.

Eclectic, believe me, Mac Davis music in my head is never a good thing. Bucky would do that to anyone. Actually, she used to play Barry Manilow when she was a kid. I could take anything of his over Mac Davis. Sorry you got caught in the crossfire.

tshsmom, oh yeah, the Cowsills were big with me after the Monkees. Maybe I thought my family would do something like that, who knows? You're right about not having a million lofty goals by this time in life. Tiring is a big part of it. And, yes, Kurt Russell is still one of my crushes.

Bucky, I said I'd use tshsmom's list. That wasn't on there. Right now I've got a song from Something Anything by Todd Rundgren in my head. It's called Dust in the Wind and has NO relation to the song by Kansas, thank goodness. Oh, I'll think about it. If I can come up with seven I'll post them. In the meantime I'll just type umegbus so I can post this comment.

Lucrative employment at home - SEE I TOLD YOU WE SHOULD HAVE OPENED THAT BROTHEL!?!?!

I want someone to explain to me how Squirl could do a post that ends with the phrase, if you feel like taggin yourself, and Bucky hasnt commented on it.

What is the world coming to?

Fine, I will pick up the slack here,

Why Squirl, your posts are so good they always make me feel like taggin myself.

Now was that so difficult?

Kitty, darn, another missed opportunity.

Jess, I'm just thrilled that my posts are so good that they make you want to tag yourself. :-)

Taking up the slack for Bucky. lol

Hey! Did I feel my slack get touched in here?


My slack hasn't felt this good in years!

So you don't think Sean Connery is at all good looking? C'mon--he's a bit old for me, but not bad! And Michael Douglas--you can flesh (haha) that list out a bit, can't you? And Denzel Washington--ooh, I think I should stop now....

I'd like to meet other bloggers too (other than fam)

Trivial Pursuit! Fun--some of the questions are a bit too tricky for me--but I like it!

Love your list!!

Blogger Squirl said...

Bucky, just don't always expect your slack to feel so good here. It's only when good Pope Jess is able to visit.

Effie, you know, I was gonna put Sean Connery on. Don't remember why I didn't. And Michael Douglas, Denzel Washington, lord girl, what was I thinking? Or not thinking. :-)

Bucky, I guess for the tunes it's between the stuff on Something, Anything by Todd Rundgren and the music from the musical, Kismet. Nothing cool at all.

You are one talented chickie.

Thanks, Kranki! I hope you're feeling better.

Wow, I LIKE your list . . . wishing I could play various musical instruments.

Nanina, thanks! But I didn't say how WELL I play them. That's always in doubt.
