Seven Things...

Well, no more postponing it.  Nearly a month ago, Olddog299 (in his new incarnation) tagged me with the Seven Things meme.

You'd think that having had three weeks to think this one through I would be able to come up with decent answers.  Yeah, that'd be wrong.

-(This one's for you, mom.)  Marry the perfect guy.

1. Why can you do Romeo's part? Did you play him once?

2. What the frell is a scratch pin?

Love your last line!

Ha ha.  I know the feeling.  I am my parent's technical support line for all things computer related.  Once when my dad called, Brett brought me the phone and as he walked of, he said in a voice like Mr. Mackey from South Park:

"Ummmmm, my computer's broke, umkay?"

I got the giggles and could hardly get through the conversation with my dad.

"Marry the perfect guy."  geez.  high, high standards.  but then, you wouldn't be you if you didn't.  plus the fact that I have total confidence you WILL meet this goal.

The "twisting the elbow" thing -- OUCH!  That's all I can say.

"A body that makes me drool" -- now you are talking my language.  :-)

Halle Berry -- :-)
