Today, fill your cup of life with sunshine and laughter.

28 July 2007


I unashamedly stole this meme from Sanni. I think memes may be the answer to getting me blogging again. They're fun and I don't really have to think very hard. Perfect, huh? Hope you don't get bored ...

1. meet my dear, precious SP friends
2. adopt another child
3. write a novel
4. travel (anywhere at all would be fine)
5. be completely debt-free
6. go to a Van Morrison concert
7. get another degree, just for myself, not for the job

Things I can do

1. make my son laugh, any time
2. teach anyone to play the piano
3. curl my tongue into a tube
4. bake a perfect double chocolate cheesecake

Things that attract me to the opposite sex

1. gentleness (been the other route ... never again)

2. Jamie Foxx (ahh hell ... everything about him)
3. Richard Gere (onscreen kisses that melt my fillings)
4. Gerard Depardieu (the aww-shucks demeanor, the accent, the nose ...)
5. Alan Rickman (the voice ...)
6. Rowan Atkinson (anybody who can make me laugh like that ...)
7. Bond (and we're not talking 007 here ...)

Great answers there Coco...glad to see you back posting.

Thanks, Vinny. It's good to be back. As for being a celebrity, why don't we take a poll of Your faithful readers? :-D

Travis said...

You are so musical, and play so many instruments - but you can't play chords on a guitar? Wow.

I'll bet you could learn pretty quick though.
