The Seven Wonder meme

Oh look, another meme opportunity. Again, this comes courtesy of the now New Yorker soon to be Californian, NYPaganChick. This one was actually a bit more difficult to complete than I first anticipated.

Precursor:

Things I plan to do are what I want to accomplish in the next two years. I was going to list under things that scare me clowns but they just creep me out.

7 Things I Plan To Do:

1. Get married ... finally!
2. Get our finances in order

7. Learn American Sign Language

7 Things I Can Do:

1. Talk like Alvin, Simon, and Theodore (what a talent)
2. Math
3. Cook, but not bake
4. Solve wrought-iron bar puzzles (e.g., remove the ring from the two horseshoes)
5. Fine arts (i.e., sculpting, painting, drawing)

1. Juggle
2. Whistle really loud using my finger and thumb
3. Dance
4. Ski (water or snow) or skateboard

1. Bridges
2. Deep water
3. Losing my child
4. Large objects (i.e., cargo ships in the water, blimps, etc)

5. Heights

7 Things I Say The Most:

1. Nope, didn't hear a word you said (or "Nope, not a clue")
2. Alright!
3. Really?
4. Well then ...
5. I see
6. And your point?

7. Good job!


Tag 7 People:

No one. I honestly can't think of seven people I wish to torture with this. Do it if you want.

Well your fear of airplanes is one shared by many. I love taking off, it is my favorite part - probably helps that I'm an airline employee.
And I'm impressed you can cook - one skill I have to start learning ASAP!

NYPC - No prob!

VG - I love cooking. It's one of the few things that I know I can do well.

ASAP? What, you running away?

Rowan - I'll find the sound link to the only way any American kid growing up in the 70's learned how to recite the Preamble. it starts off "We the people, in order to form a more perfect union, ..."

And I love horror books too. I just throw them under the category of sci-fi.

Vanilla bean ice cream? I thought for sure it was chocolate. The only way I know the preamble was by Schoolhouse Rock. When we had a test-the whole class was humming it. My teacher made a comment like, "I see everyone watches their Saturday Morning Cartoons!". I have to get them on DVD for the girls.
