NEWS: 7 things

My good pal Siel at tagged me with this meme and so what the hell...figured it might be nice for y'all to know a bit about me.

7 things to do before I die:
Get healthy, camp with my wife and son, learn basic bushcraft skills a la Ray Mears with my family, go off-grid, grow my own food, explore the UK thoroughly & finally read everything on my reading list.

7 things I can’t do:
Speak another language, fly without wings, be a pessimist, play pro Soccer or American Football, tolerate evil, read everything on my reading list & finally sit still for more than 5 minutes.

7 things that attract me to blogging:
writing, evangelising, the web, freedom, working for myself, community & finally making a positive contribution to our world.

7 things I say most often:
..., namaste, bugger, grrr, sorry, thanks & finally, sure, why not.

7 books I love:
Sheesh...tough one, this is by no means final, ask me again tomorrow and it would be a different list but these are the most influential books on my life so far - that is the only way I could pick books I love - what a question: Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien, Stark by Ben Elton, Childhoods End by Arthur C Clarke, The Development Dictionary : A Guide to Knowledge as Power by Wolfgang Sachs The Sea Around Us by Rachel L. Carson, The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield & finally A Rulebook for Arguments by Anthony Weston.

7 movies I watch again and again:
ARGH!!! The Matrix Trilogy, Contact, The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

7 people I want to join in, too:
Hmmm, not sure they will but here goes: Jeff @ Sustainablog, Deb @ Outonthelimb, Ian @ Spinneyhead, Marigolds @ Thebluevoice, Don @ EvanEco, George @ DirtyGreek & finally Jerome @ BlackBearSpeaks

So now you know...thanks Siel!

oHO my dear Hippy, you have tagged me too! I'm not sure such a thing as this would belong in The Blue Voice, but I may give it a try in my own journal on AOL or my not-really-a-blog on Blogspot, Quid Nunc. I'll let you know, anyway. Actually sounds like fun. I certainly enjoyed reading yours. -Mary Ellen, aka marigolds2

Wait -- Does this mean that you're not currently healthy? Let me point out here that drinking wine and smoking pot is beneficial to your health, in my opinion --
