ARGH, post eaten


Unfortunately, my 7×7 meme post got eaten. So here I try again, below the fold. No guarantees they’ll be the same as I posted before.

*Seven things to do before I die*
* recover from pneumonia
* leave the North American continent
* live in the mountains
* run my own yoga studio, or some similar business
* publish a damn paper
* do the “scorpion”:http://www.santosha.com/asanas/scorpion.html (the variation with the feet on the head)
* be out of debt

*Seven things I cannot do* (argue for your limitations, and they’re yours!)
* Draw anything more complex than a straight line without assistance
* the “scorpion”:http://www.santosha.com/asanas/scorpion.html
* watch another minute of ??Dora the Explorer??
* walk more than 5 feet without getting out of breath while having pneumonia
* stay up two consecutive nights
* sing
* compose poetry

*Seven things that attracted me to blogging*
* If someone wants to punch me in the face for what I say, it’s their money buying a new computer monitor
* Journaling, looking at old posts
* I’ve tried posting public thoughts before, but it was difficult, static, and dry. The dynamic form of blogging (including ability to comment and trackback) makes this much more exciting.
* Cool geek factor (at the time)
* Great way to vent frustration about world events, as long as you’re fairly careful
* Ability to respond to viewpoints I think are extreme or ridiculous
* Another excuse to spend time on a computer

*Seven things I say most often*
* Holy cow
* Did he pee AGAIN?!
* Don’t make me repeat myself again.
* You’re going to need a larger sample size to do that.
* Eat your food.
* Time for bed. (I say this at least 20 times a day.)
* Get that out of your mouth.

*Seven books I love*
* ??Dune?? by Frank Herbert (??Heretics?? and ??Chapterhouse?? are pretty good out of the series, too, but the others are mediocre)
* ??Lord of the Rings?? trilogy and prequel by J.R.R. Tolkein
* ??Radical Acceptance?? by Tara Brach, Ph.D.
* ??Jonathan Livingston Seagull?? by Richard Bach
* ??Anguished English?? by Richard Lederer
* ??As I Lay Dying?? (or ??Sound and the Fury??) by William Faulkner
* ??Finding Flow?? by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (yes, I copied and pasted the name)

*Seven movies I watch over and over*
When I have an actual chance to watch an actual movie at home, chances are it will be one of the following.
* ??Groundhog Day??
* ??What the Bleep Do We Know?!??
* ??Lord of the Rings??
* ??Harry Potter??
* ??The Princess Bride??
* ??Breakfast at Tiffany’s??
* ??Star Wars?? (any)

*Seven people to whom I pass this meme*
* “Brian”:http://phillybri.blogspot.com
* “Brian”:http://www.livejournal.com/users/cavafy if he ever gets back online. School’s over, dude!
* “Maguire”:http://www.livejournal.com/users/maguire708
* The folks at “Stinging Nettle”:http://stinging-nettle.blogspot.com
