I got tagged...

Well, thanks (or no thanks), to a certain D-Guy, whose blog I read religiously, I have been "tagged." Like email chain letters, I am supposed to post it and tag 7 more fellow bloggers. However, seeing as how I "know" a whopping two people who blog (only one of whom I've met in person), no can do on the tagging part, but I'll be brave and post it here for all the world to see, so that it will forever embarrass me.

7 Things

7 things I plan to do before I die:

1. succeed as an artist (whatever that means…)
2. fall in love
3. have a one-person gallery showing of chicken and horse (and other critter) art in a “big” gallery
4. own a Friesian (or maybe a half-Friesian… think Shylah would go for that idea?) :-)
5. finish the Standard illustrations
6. win Best in Show with a BBRed Rosecomb
7. be somebody’s inspiration, change somebody’s life

7 things I can do:

1. draw
2. bake desserts
3. be quiet and listen
4. find a downside to everything
5. tell the truth, even the brutal honest truth, even if I can’t say it to your face
6. write somewhat intelligently
7. waste time like it’s going out of style

7 things I cannot do:

1. talk and type at the same time
2. sing (well)
3. “throw” pottery more than about 4 inches tall
4. gracefully accept a compliment, or take anything without a grain of salt
5. keep my room clean
6. resist sugary things
7. make an instant decision and not change my mind a zillion times

7 things that attract me to the opposite sex:

1. honesty and trustworthiness
2. genuine mutual interest
3. intelligence
4. he has to like animals
5. big rugged cowboy-types! :-)
6. common interests
7. proportion and symmetry (probably only an artist would say something like that)

7 things that attract me to the same sex:

(first off I think "attract" is not the right word here... more like friend-qualifications...)
1. remind me of me (as in, not super-popular, quiet, horsey types, etc)
2. not “phony”
3. style, or more like lack thereof (thereby reminding me of me!)
4. common interests
5. not too needy or overbearing
6. practical, down to earth, not too girly
7. brains

7 things I say most often:

1. "um, no”
2. "so anyway…"
3. "cool"
4. "I don't know."
5. "Nellie, cut it out!/stop it!/go away!"
6. "we’ll see/don’t count on it/no promises"
7. "Gack!/Ack!/Ugh!/Bleh/Sheesh/Yeesh/Dang/Durn" (I know, I’m such a potty-mouth…)

7 Celebrity crushes (that I'm not ashamed of):

1. David Duchovny (yep, still…)
2. Brad Pitt, specifically in A River Runs Through It
3. Clinton Anderson (horsey people only will know that name)
4. John Corbett
5. Tobey Maguire
6. Heath Ledger
7. Adam from the old Bonanza series (yes, Little Joe was awfully cute, but Adam had brains too!)
