Blog meme

Tom tagged me with one of those blog memes. This one wants me to list:

Seven things to do before I die
Seven things I cannot do
Seven things that attract me to (…)
Seven things I say most often
Seven books (or series) that I love
Seven movies I watch over and over again (or would if I had time)
Seven people I want to join in, too.

Here goes:

Seven things to do before I die

Buy a registered machinegun, like this one (I’d do it now but they’re pricey and I’m about to be unemployed – that one is $13K)
Go skydiving. I’ve bungee jumped 379 times but have never once jumped from a plane
Kick Chuck Schumer’s fat ass – I really hate that guy
Lucy Liu
Win the Powerball/strike at rich – Not only is life too short to be poor, it’s too short to be affluent
Drive a car in excess of 200MPH
Cure cancer – unlikely, but since I’m wishing, I may as well do something nice that isn’t for Lucy Liu.

Seven things I cannot do

Fly a plane
Drive a motorcycle
Tell a joke well. Delivery is everything and I ain’t got it
Stop buying guns, it’s an addiction
Lucy Liu, apparently
Stop blogging
Wrap presents, seriously, I suck at it

Seven things that attract me to Guns (duh, what’d you expect?)

I link to tinker with mechanical things
They’re fun to build
I enjoy shooting
They go boom
To ensure I have the best means of protecting myself and my family
They scare bed-wetting pansies who deserve to be scared
They annoy liberals

Seven things I say most often

No (dogs and kids, you know)
The F bomb (I’m a potty mouth)
The fervent prayer that people think is taking God’s name in vain.
Beat it (code word to dogs for get off couch, bed, etc.)
I don’t know
Hey, pretty girl (wife and baby)
What? (my wife mumbles)

Seven books (or series) that I love – not big on fiction, really

Incarnation series by Peirs Anthony
Lost Rights by James Bovard (love to read it but not what it says)
Art of War by Sun Tzu
Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader series (I like random facts)
Gun Laws (seriously, I read those a lot – not a book though)
The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

Seven movies I watch over and over again (or would if I had time)

Big Trouble In Little China
The Princess Bride
Amazon Women On The Moon
Monty Python’s Holy Grail

Oh and Raising Arizona is a strong number 8

Seven people I want to join in, too.

    “To ensure I have the beast means of protecting myself and my family”

    Is that some kind of Freudian slip? 🙂

  2. Jay G says:

    What’s scary is that if you switch “The Blues Brothers” for “Amazon Women” that is my movie list exactly…

  3. SayUncle says:

    Oops. Could have been a slip.

  4. rich says:

    “strike at rich”

    Why? What did I ever do to you?

  5. Manish says:

    You’re about to be unemployed? That blows…

  6. SayUncle says:

    Tell me about it.

  7. Les Jones says:

    Rich: not only does Uncle strike at rich, he fires at will.

  8. david says:

    Seven things to do before I die? Well, #1 will be “Yell for help.” 😉

  9. Drake says:

    Jack Burton: Black blood of the earth? You mean oil?

    Egg: No! I mean black blood of the earth.

  10. tgirsch says:

    I actually saw Big Trouble In Little China in a theater when it first came out.

    [/I’m getting old]

    As for Amazon Women, I’ll never be able to look at David Alan Grier without picturing Don “No Soul” Simmons.

    Believe it or not, I haven’t seen Unforgiven or Tombstone (generally speaking, I hate Westerns), or Goodfellas (or any other mafia movie), or Raising Arizona. And I hated The Princess Bride. Of course, had Wesley died a graphic, painful, bloody death (preferably at the hands of Andre the Giant), it may have been one of the best movies ever made.

    Come to think of it, it shouldn’t surprise me too much that SayUncle likes a movie in which an egotistical, smarmy prick is the “hero.” 🙂

  11. SayUncle says:

    You need to run out and get those movies, asap. Unforgiven is kinda slow and the rest just kick ass.

    Hey, I resemble that last remark

  12. tgirsch says:

    Does it matter that I detest westerns and am totally disinterested in mafia movies? I’ve seen the last 20 minutes or so of Unforgiven, and while I missed all of the context, I still didn’t see what all the fuss was about.

  13. SayUncle says:

    I’ve never been a fan of westerns myself but I like those two. Still, get Raising Arizona, trust me.

  14. […] The wife then tells me that it’s not any jealousy sort of thing. And tells me that she knows I find Lucy Liu hot and she concurs that Lucy Liu is in fact hot. However, she says Laurie Berkner definitely is not hot. So, maybe it is just me. […]
