Radiogurl a la Carte

At Sixes and Sevens

This meme shamelessly stolen from nicim, who had no say in the matter. (See if she still threatens to fix me up with somebody again, neener neener!)

6 Things I Want To Do:

  1. Finish writing and publish at least one book.
  2. Visit Europe, with enough time to really get a feel for the place.
  3. Visit one of my best friends in Canada and go with her to walk her family's property in the abandoned Outports of Newfoundland.
  4. See my oldest daughter graduate from college and regain custody of her son.
  5. Go see Poolagirl's play opening weekend.
  6. Lose about 80 lbs.

6 Things I Can Do:

  1. Finish writing and publish at least one book.
  2. Lose about 80 lbs.
  3. Find positive ways to channel anger and hurt.
  4. Budget myself better.
  5. Take a yoga class (hopefully soon!)
  6. Handle 99 percent of computer fixes myself.

6 Things I Cant Do:

  1. Fix my car when it breaks down.
  2. Make anyone love me. It's their decision.
  3. Control the whims Mother Nature. She's still in charge.
  4. Write PHP (yet!)
  5. Un-elect our current President, no matter how much I disagree with his policies.
  6. Eat pineapple (deathly allergic.)

6 Things That Makes Me Attractive To The Opposite Sex:

  1. Blue Eyes
  2. Thick, healthy hair
  3. Sense of humor
  4. Sense of adventure
  5. *Stares at chest.* Figure that one out for yourself.
  6. I work for a living and think it's unfair for a man to pay for everything if we're involved. I fully expect to share responsibility for paying if we're going out. I usually end up paying more. Apparently that's also unattractive to the opposite sex. Some guys view it as a control issue. Hell, maybe they all do and that's my problem.

6 Things I Say All The Time:

  1. Let me see what I can do.
  2. Piece o' cake!
  3. I guess.
  4. Oooookayyyy...
  5. I just calls 'em like I sees 'em.
  6. That's seriously weird.

6 Celebrity Crushes (in no particular order):

  1. Michael
  2. Dangerspouse
  3. Brendan Frasier
  4. Josh Groban
  5. Poolagirl
  6. Christien Anholt

If I were putting that last sequence in order, Michael and Dangerspouse and Poolagirl would be tied for first place in this list and the others would be juggled all around. I have distant connections to all of the above people except Brendan Frasier. This list is kind of a compromise, because I would always choose lunch with a friend over lunch with a total stranger who happens to be a celeb. I just have a friend or two who fit more than one of the above categories. Most of them I've never met in person and they would never know me if we passed each other on the street.

6 Strangers That I Tag:

I won't tag anyone. On Diaryland we tend to be pretty much self-motivated. You want it, it's all yours!

Before - After

In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
