A meme . . . and some GOLD

Angie over at Dipsy Doodle tagged me with a meme a few days ago. I figure a dark, rainy Sunday is a great day to reflect, so here goes. (These are all in no particular order.)

Seven Things To Do Before I Die:

  • figure out what I want to be "when I grow up" . . .

Seven Things I Cannot Do:
  • a cartwheel
  • give a good massage
  • say "parenthesis
  • be patient
  • have a messy house
  • spend a lot of money on something I can make myself
  • stop worrying about EVERYTHING

Seven Things That Attract Me To My Man:
  • his big heart
  • his silly sense of humor

  • how he makes me feel
  • well . . . EVERYTHING about him!!!

Seven lovely ladies I'm gonna tag: Okay, I never know who to tag for these things. If you don't like doing these (or have done it already and I've forgotten), don't feel obligated. But if you do - here's who I'm tagging: Marie, Ragan, Katt, MelissaJoon, Heidi, Karyn and Zonda.

Okay, on to Project Spectrum. I don't have any pictures for you today, because it's been too dim to get good pictures. So I'll tell you about some gold . . .Olympic gold . . . on Friday night. We had front row seats to Champions on Ice!!! Front row is wonderful not only because you are practically right on the ice with them, but also because at the end of the show they skate around the perimeter and smack our hands as they skate by!! Unfortunately, not all of the Olympic Gold medalists were in the show this year, but Tatiana and Maxim were there and "smacked" us. And then there's Evgeni. I will admit to having a soft spot for Russian skaters. And maybe I get a little loud when a skater I like comes out. And maybe . . . just maybe . . . . I screamed so loud that he looked me straight in the eye and pointed at me!! And at the end, he looked for me again and blew a kiss. Pea didn't think it was all that funny, but hey, I"m not about to run away with a Russian skater . . . . even if he wasn't already married.

So is there a story behind your love of ice skaters/skating??

Noey D. said...

Interesting! I love learning these little tidbits of information about people!

Cathy said...

Well Karen, it seems as though we have some of the same tastes in movies and books :) Thanks for sharing! Have a good Monday.

I really enjoyed reading through your list of 7's!
Wow, front row seats for Champions on Ice, now, that's something truly special! And ohhh, Russian skaters! Okay, I'd go for (or run after, LOL) hockey players in that case, but hey, they also skate :)

MissyJoon said...

Thanks for tagging me--It was fun to read about you, and it was fun to think about how I was going to answer!

Elizabeth said...

Oooh - you went to the skating! I was tempted because we were north of Boston visiting my mother-in-law, but couldn't fit it in. I'm so envious, especially being right next to the ice. I'm always amazed at how fast they skate; it doesn't seem like it on TV.

I'm torn between mocking being so excited for seats in the front row for Champions on Ice and jealousy.


Patti said...

Thanks for the comment you left for me, liked that bug story huh? Pretty gross! Sounds like you had a blast at Champions on Ice! We went to a couple of hockey games where we were a few rows off the ice, and it is unbelievable! They never look like they are going that fast on TV.

You and your skater boys! That sounds like so much fun.

Ragan said...

OMG! I just noticed that you tagged me. BAD ME!!! I will do that today!!!
