7 things I plan to do before I die:

  • Have at least one moment in time where I am not afraid to go to the dentist, optometrist, or doctor because I don’t want to hear that I have cavities, an outdated prescription, or an ulcer.
  • Make a movie or short film.
  • Learn the basics of auto maintenance.
  • Have a computer with internet access or at least a television in a house bathroom.
  • Read the Bible from front to end and at least one other religious text (Talmud, Koran, Book of Mormon, etc.) from cover to cover.
  • Get a dog or preferably two.
  • Learn another language.

7 things I can do:

  • Sing all 50 states in alphabetical order. The real states, that is. I can’t do that with the Trumanverse states. Yet.
  • Touch my nose and walk in a straight line no matter how plastered I am.
  • Make unbelievably good egg-based breakfasts and chili-based dips.
  • Make myself sound more educated and intelligent than I am by using unnecessarily long and obscure words without making myself sound like the intellectually insecure pompous prick sort of person that uses long and obscure words to sound more intelligent and educated than they are.
  • Find something to appreciate about any moderately coherent artistic work.
  • Block out the whole world in pursuit of a singular task for hours on-end some times and yet be completely unable focus most of the rest of the time.
  • See and understand both sides of an issue, even when I feel strongly one way or the other.

7 things I cannot do:

  • Keep my mouth shut whenever most appropriate to.
  • Be comfortable in a room full of strangers.
  • Keep track of time mentally.
  • Dance.
  • Let go.

7 things that [used to] attract me to another person [before I got married and lost all notice in women other than my lovely and talented wife whom I love more than all others]:

  • Intelligence.
  • Marches to the beat of a different drummer. I don’t get along well with normal people.
  • Competence. I am really attracted to people that are really, really good at something. This applies to friends, but moreso to significant others.
  • Patience. I couldn’t survive a relationship with someone that didn’t have patience.
  • Sociability. Someone needs to help me get out.
  • Mental instability. Hey, it doesn’t say that I have to like the fact I was attracted to a particular sort.
  • Red or black hair. Everybody’s gotta be frivolous sometimes, no?

how’s that for a disclaimer?

  • Very good
  • Very true
  • Very good and very true
  • The words of wise man
  • The very good and very true disclaimer of a wise man
  • A good way to get out of trouble.

7 Things I say the most:

  • “Outstanding!”
