Lucky Seven

Since I don't want my sister-in-law to consider me a "pinecone" for the rest of my life, I'll respond to her "Lucky Seven" tag. (For those of you who don't understand why being known as a pinecone is a serious matter, let me explain. Growing up, when someone was acting really grouchy or crabby, we would refer to that person as having a pinecone. Like, "Gosh, what is wrong with you today? Why do you have such a pinecone?" Or "Stop being such a pinecone!" It really is a useful little term).


7 Things I Can Do:

1. Play the piano
2. Make rolls
3. Memorize easily
4. Drive a stick shift
5. Give myself shots (impressive, no?)
6. Repeat all the dialogue in the movie "Clue"
7. Win at Boggle

7 Things I Can't Do:

1. Follow a map while I'm driving
2. Turn the right direction when I walk out of a hotel room
3. Ride the twirly rides at amusement parks
4. Stick to a diet
5. Resist the call of chocolate (see #4)
6. Balance on one foot
7. Step on a cockroach

5. He was appreciative of everything
6. He put a lot of time and thought into dates and gifts
7. He's cute

7 Things I Say The Most:

2. Any new e-mail?
3. Pinch your little cheeks
4. Do not bite me or you will go to time out
5. Let's go!

7 Celebrities I Admire Most:

Um, if you've read my blog in the past you'll know that I don't have much admiration for celebrities. This is why:

1. "Smoking kills. If you're killed, you've lost a very important part of your life." - Brooke Shields

2. "I get to go to lots of overseas places, like Canada." - Britney Spears

3. "So where's the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?" - Christina Aguilera

4. "Twenty-three is old. It's almost twenty-five, which is, like, almost mid-twenties." - Jessica Simpson

5. "I make Jessica Simpson look like a rock scientist." - Tara Reid

6. "Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can't help but cry. I mean, I'd love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff." - Mariah Carey

7. "Is the world flat? I never thought about it." - Sherri Shepherd

Where do you find all these crazy quotes? I love your take on celebrities.

I have the same question -- Where the heck do you find this stuff!!? I love it. Also, I can totally hear you saying "Pinch your little cheeks," that is definitely a Bonnie-ism. And I am super impressed with the giving yourself your own shots bit. It took me 20 mins to work up the courage to do ONE shot once.

Love the quotes. Notice how all my celebrities were dead? So true.

We had a similar saying about pinecones growing up, with a "small" variation. It was "why do you have such a pine cone up your butt?" Snicker, snicker...

Yes, Bonnie, you CAN make rolls. It's been years since I have had the pleasure of eating any of them, but I still fantasize about them in weak moments. In fact, I refuse to try to learn how to make rolls (especially the cinnamon variety) because they'll never be as good as yours.

PS, the above paragraph wasn't a plea for cinnamon rolls next time you're in town... really. It wasn't... I promise... seriously... LOL!
