My turn

Shifra tagged me for the 7 meme. I don't know what a meme is, but I seem to be in a blog slump, so I may as well do this.

7 things I can do
Clear the intermediate level of Minesweeper in under 40 seconds without cheating
Tell jokes at a funeral (but I do get kicked by my wife)
Make up songs that get kids to laugh, mostly by either singing about throwing up, farting, or other good clean fun
Sit and listen to my kids all talking and not hear a single word they say
Answer any question you have about the first two seasons of the OC (Except the last five episodes of season two, I haven't seen them yet)and the first two seasons of Gilmore girls
Use computer programs without using a mouse
Drink a large glass of water and chew through an entire ice tray on a typical friday night

7 things I can't do
Type without looking at the keyboard ocasionally
Stop crying when I watch the Rookie or Miracle
Sing on tune
Understand women
Understand how my daughter can be standing next to the toilet and peeing on herself instead of just sitting on the toilet and peeing in the bowl
Take a subway to work
Hold a pen without putting it in my mouth

7 things I want to do before I die
Write a screenplay
BBQ something huge that takes 8 hours to cook
Fry a turkey
Hunt down all sports talk radio hosts and lock them away on an island that the military uses for target practice
Attend a Superbowl Championship parade on Woodward
Learn how to do flash animation and create something that the whole world forwards to one another
Send a bill to a credit card company for my time spent reading and trashing all the junk mail I get from them

7 Things I Say Often
Good morning
Do you wanna
Marginally
Whats for dinner
Yes
No
Maybe

I'm supposed to tag seven people, but all the blogs I read have been infected with this meme, so you are all off the hook. Feel free to leave a list of your things here.

AT-
You mentioned BBQ-ing something huge that takes 8 hours to cook. That got me thinkging that you might like this show/website. It's a cooking show called BBQ University on public television that my dad worked on. Honestly, I have the DVD of season 1 and havent watched it yet - so I don't know how helpful it is to kosher households- but if you are interested I can see about getting you a copy.
p.s. - my brother-in-law (of the chicago wedding) is in chicago by his in-laws for yom kippur-chol hamoed. He has called every single time he has been in Ken's so far just to make us jealous. jerk.

that sounds good. If you can send us a copy that would be cool.

I can't understand how you could have something like that and not watch it.

When I find them BBQing on the food channel I always linger.

BY the way, I don't think your brother in law is a jerk. I think he is giving you something to aspire for. But if he doesnt bring anything back for you he goes to the top of the jerk list.

MEME - Meaningless (Meaningful?) Expressions of ME?

no idea what it means.

He claims he can't bring anything back because they're coming home on Friday and its not open on Fridays (in the winter). Hence the jerkiness.
Don't worry- I'm probably going to Chicago in May for a 5 day conference - then it will be payback time. Do you think Ken's will deliver to the hotel and convention center????

doubtful. But it is worth blowing off the conference for.

I'm totally with about not being able to now cry at Miracle. Every time I watch it, and Al Michaels says: "5 seconds left... Do you believe in miracles?!?" Gets me every time.

Anon, don't forget to lift your head out of your a$$ before you cross the street. A car coming at you at 45 mph could really ruin your day.
