MEME Sunday

Content? No content. It's Sunday, there are memes to be done:
Book Meme
from Knits & Grits
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open it to page 161.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

The nearest books next too me actually don't go up to 161; they're my tattered and trudged-around copies of various Calvin & Hobbes comic collections, um 7, none of which go past pg. 127.

#8 however, The Days Are Just Packed, is one of the "anniversary" collections. It revealed this gem:
"I've never really thought about butt muscles before." (Calvin)

7X7 Meme:
(I had to do a search on my blog to see if I'd done this one already, sheesh!)
from: Felt Like Knitting
I won't do the footwork for you, but if you do some "link following" there's a contest somewhere :)

Seven things to do before I die:
1 Be a part of something special.
2 Go to New Zealand.
3 See ALL the I
slands of Hawai'i (3 down).
4 Go to Europe. Not picky here, at this point any place across the pond will do.
5 Write out my mother's story
6 Figure out what I want to do when I grow up.
7 Teach again, long enough to maybe possibly earn tenure somewhere?!?

Seven things I cannot do:
1 Keep "my room" clean (office, classroom, playroom, etc., if it's "mine" it's messy).
2 Do that rolled/tube tongue thing my mom and everyone else in the world can do.
3 A cartwheel.
4 Deny a craving (like the ice cream, even on a cold blistery day, or strawberries, even if they have to be frozen, go to a yarn store, like even through a blizzard).
5 Make a deadline by anything but the skin of my teeth. If I need something done "early" I convince myself the due date is earlier than it actually is.
6 Say no to Tiramisu
7 Along the same lines, but there actually has to be room for it, say no to chocolate cake.

Seven things that attract me to my husband: Sooooo, I need to change this one...How 'bout 7 things that attract me to a fella? Or something, you get the idea?
1 A good sense of humor.
2 Patience (with me esp.).
3 His smell.
4 Adaptability.
5 Honesty.
6 How he treats others.
7 Willingness to hold my hand.

It's a bonus if he's cute too : ).

Seven books that I love: (SEVEN! ONLY 7! Egads!)
1 Calvin & Hobbes Collection books (and I'm cheating by "bundling.")
2 The Phantom Tollbooth
3 Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass (it's pre-bundled)
4 Harry Potter et. al.
5 The Princess Bride
6 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy "Trilogy"
7 The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings (Come on, they may as well be one!)

Seven things I say:
1 Yeah, no.
2 Shut u-u-p.
3 Yes, dear.
4 Shhhhh!
5 You're stu-u-uck
6 Keen!
7 Cabron! (Which spell check really wants to be "carbon" tee hee.)

Seven movies I've loved
1 The Princess Bride
Can we say child of the 80s? YES Cheating again, can't help it, sorry.
2a The Breakfast Club
2b Ferris Beuller's Day Off
2c Pretty In Pink
2d Sixteen Candles
3 Bladerunner
4 2001
5 The Iron Giant
6 Princess Mononoke
7 Serenity

Seven people I'm gonna tag:
You know I do have that no-tag rule, so if you want, do. But let me know so I can stalk you, I mean read your answers.

Beth said...

The bad thing about memes is that I see answers that I should have listed on my meme! I love The Princess Bride movie, too. And how could I forget the Harry Potter books? I wonder if I could get away with updating my meme... I did see several movies and books I haven't seen/read and will have to check them out.

Are you feeling any better today?
