It's Time For Memes!

Hey, y'all! I've been tagged by Jen- and although th' ol' blog is still dormant, I'll answer this tag, just because Jen is outstanding. Ready? Let's go! Yay!

(And be aware that all of the responses are in no particular order.)

Seven things I want to do before I die:

1. Raise my kids to be good Christians and successful people.
2. Get promoted. Several more times.
3. Make a heckuvalot more money than I do now.
4. Go to college and get a degree.
5. Keep going to college afterward, and get a better degree.
6. Be an elder in my church.
7. Continue to love my wife more every day.

Seven things I can do:
1. Whistle. (Sort of.)
2. Chew gum and walk at the same time.
3. Fix a radar with one hand and kill terrorists with the other. (This one isn't proven yet, but I'm pretty sure I could if I had to.)
4. Read a 200-page novel in one sitting, given the time.
5. Pray.
6. Lift my kids up almost all the way to the ceiling real fast like a rocket ship.
7. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Which is not a real good setup to the next list...)

Seven things I cannot do:
1. Run worth a crap.
2. Blog with any regularity, apparently.
3. Do the rocket ship thing with more than one kid at a time. And with three toddler boys, that can become a whole lot of rocket ship rides.
4. Jump out of a perfectly good airplane. (Yes, Airborne, I am a LEG with an Eighty-Deuce combat patch. Ha.)
5. Betray my country.
6. Turn my back on my God.
7. Stop loving my wife and kids.

Seven things I say a lot:
1. KILL!
2. That's frickin' hooah.
3. Denied! Resubmit thirty days for further disapproval.
4. 'Sup [insert name of person I'm addressing here].
5. Amen.
6. I love you babe. (To my wife.)
7. ...In Jesus' Name... (Either before, after, or in the middle of various statements throughout the day.)

Seven things I find attractive in a female:

See, now here's where the simple, organized lists start breaking down, and I go into "My Blog!" mode. So- it's time to start revising some rules.

If you want to know what I find attractive in a female, well, I could just describe my wife- but, uh, that's for me to know and you to find out. Wink wink nudge nudge know what I mean?

Seven celebrity crushes:

Yeah. I'm kinda with Jen's answer here. When I was dumb and single I had a list of celebrity crushes that topped fifty, at one point. Then I grew up. Then I got married, so I will no longer speculate on any alleged crushes. However- I will alter the question however I see fit:

Seven celebrities I respect:

1. Bishop T.D. Jakes.
2. My Commander-in-Chief, President George Walker Bush.
3. LL Cool J, for that one line in S.W.A.T.: "Yeah, we'll see how liberal you are when he's breakin' into your place."
4. Toby Keith. When he's not singin about being a drunken idiot.
5. Tom Clancy.
6. Mel Gibson.
7. Darryl Worley.

Geez, that was a hard list. Moving on...

Seven people I feel like bugging:

Are there even seven?

1. CD.
2. Kate.
3. Humble DevilDog.
4. Jay.
5. basil.
6. SarahK. (Don't know if she's into being tagged, but I'm seriously running out of names here.)


I don't know anybody else. My bloggy circle is too small. sniff

Oh, what the heck. I'll bug Jeremiah. If I can't use the "But I'm not really blogging right now!" excuse, then neither can he.

And by the way, being tagged by me does not mean anyone is obligated to respond. I don't play by that rule, either.

Well- that's the post for this month, I suppose. I like the way it was set up- seven sevens. Did they do that on purpose? Seven's a good number.
