Today Is Brought To You By The Number Seven

A tag from al

7 things that scare me:
1. Severely enclosed spaces, especially ones that are dark. Hello, claustrophobia!

7 random facts about me:

3. I make excellent banana bread with chocolate chips and walnuts
4. I sleep on my tummy, with my arms tucked in by my side

7. Grow old with Mark

7 things I can do:
1. Type pretty fast, without looking at the keys
2. Block out external noises, including entire conversations, whilst watching TV. This is a self-defense technique learned from growing up with 3 noisy sisters.
3. Count to 10 in English, French, Spanish, Italian and Mandarin.
4. Run 10k
5. Touch my nose with my tongue
6. Install WordPress!

4. “What do you want for lunch/dinner?”
5. “So, what’s the plan?”
6. “tall Americano with steamed soy please”
7. “Rosie, SIT!”

7. Celebrity Crushes: *Pah* don’t feel like doing this part. I can’t remember which celebrities I like. It changes all the time, and it has more to do with the roles they play in movies/on tv than the actual actor/person themselves.

7 people who could do this:
I know this is really really long, but if you’re free/seeking a time-wasting activity… :o) It’s taken me a few chunks of time here and there to get through the whole thing, but every now and then I need a brain break, and this has been a welcome foreground distraction while my processors are working on more complex issues in the background.
1. Andrea
2. Tricia
3. Jeff
4. Kris
5. j-a
6. Rob
7. Troy

Ps Yeah, so I’m back to WordPress….

  1. Is that Troy me? I was tagged a while ago and I’ve been working on it. It’s been taking longer than I expected 🙂 I’ll get working on it though (and if it was another Troy you were tagging forget this comment) 🙂

  2. yes…that troy is you! i unfortunately copied and pasted the wrong URL, but have corrected it now. 🙂

  3. thanks for doing this! i can’t sing all the words to American Pie but i have a story related to Don Maclean and Vincent… er, never mind. =)

    i see you’ve tagged j-a. MWAHAHA.

  4. I like the new format! I’ve been a bad blogger lately (can you call someone a blogger who never posts?), but I’ll try to get around to posting this one soon.

  6. So you made the leap to Word Press, eh? Looks good! I got my MT fixed, so I’m OK for now…. Let’s hope it doesn’t spontaneously break again or get overloaded with spam! Thanks so much for the offer to help me switch. I may take you up on that if I discover more quirks!!!
