So, here goes as I join in tagged with the 7x7 Meme:
Seven things to do before I die:
Buy my son a grand piano; hold a grandchild in my arms; sing at an open-mic night somewhere; live by the sea; visit Rodos with Shimon, Gilad, and Ronnie; remember my orphanage? and, visit a Buddhist temple in Asia.
Seven things I cannot do:
Say no; revenge; slide down a water slide; ski; talk on the phone for a long time; eat snake; and, watch violent movies in a straight sitting (that is, I have to run to the bathroom or kitchen and hide from time to time all the while crying out, "What's happening now?").
Seven things that attract me to (...)
... becoming a nun:
The robes; not having to be beautiful; not having to buy new clothes; helping the sick and needy; the guilt; driving a Land Rover in Africa with my habit flying back in the wind; and, having time, in fact, being required to reflect.
Seven things I say most often:
Shmulik! Rubbish! I wish I had been a good mother; hello my sweetheart (in a weird, cutesy voice to my cats as they enter a room); people who have been brought up by adults need therapy; it's never okay to hit a child; and, don't leeeeve me (spoken in a whiny voice with the stress on the word leave).
Seven books (or series) that I love:
Appetites: Why Women Want; Franny and Zooey; A Room of My Own; The Alexandria Quartet; Little Women; Educated in Romance; and, You Can't Say You Can't Play.
Seven movies I watch over and over again (or would if I had the time):
Two for the Road; Agnes of the Gods; Magnolia; The Hours; Hitch; Get Shorty; and, The Shop Around the Corner.
Seven people I want to join in too:
But they really do not have to, nor will they, I am sure ... and that's fine too ... but a girl can want, no?
