7. Write a novel and/or more published short stories

Seven Things I Can Not Do:

1. Speak French other than a few words I learned way back in junior high
2. Make fudge - it never turns out right
3. Study unless I have quiet an little to no distractions
4. Go to Hell - because I have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Saviour and that guarantees me a one way ticket to Heaven :o)

Seven Movies I Loved:

Gosh, I don't know if I've really 'loved' many movies...can't even recall what ones I've seen, and haven't really seen any lately

1. The Passion of the Christ
2. That one with Russell Crowe in it as the prof who thought he was working top secret for the government but turns out he's only paranoid or schizo or something...forget the name of it.
3. Miracle on 34th
4. Radio...or something like that (the one with Denzel Washington - I think - who placed the guy who was mentally challenged or something and he helped the local high school football team and he loved radios...
5. ?
6. ?
7. ?

Seven People To Tag:

Well, I don't even know if I even really get seven people who read my blog so I will just tag anyone who wants to do it :o)

Hey Shelley,

Thanks for checking out my blog; thought I would return the favour - love it! I am looking forward to seeing your RED projects; I too do not know if I will do anything in pink (not necessarily my favourite colour although I don't mind it in a supporting role!). Talk to you soon!

Renee said...

Thanks for visiting Froggie Meanie! I know you might not have any Koigu or alpaca in New Brunswick (I'm from Newfoundland and lived in NB for 5 years so I understand) but you are in the home of Briggs & Little (one of my favourite yarns).

What's my Mission said...

You're killing me Shelley...
Russell Crowe movie is "A Beautiful Mind" and it's not Denzel Washington in the movie "Radio" but Cuba Gooding Jr.

What's my Mission said...

Love ya girl...

Stricken madchen said...

Thanks for visiting my blog too! ;-) Beautiful Mind is on ABC tonight, or maybe you own it? Have you read Jerry Jenkins series, one of the books is called Silenced? (sorry, can't think of the other titles). I stayed up too late reading all 3 of them...hehe.

Hello, I thought I would live a little note about movies, Shelley, remember the paramount double feature we went to. Long time ago. Give me a call I have a new computer and email. Heading to Michaels now.


Shelley said...

Elizabeth!! I was just thinking of emailing you...but if you don't have the old one they you wouldn't get it!

Mission Girl...LOL yeah yeah...I thought of A Beautiful Mind but couldn't remember if that was the name of it...and I thought that it was Denzel in, I'm not like a certain friend we know who knows all that movie trivia stuff lol...all I know is that I liked the movie LOL

Shelley said...

Stricken...I don't think I've read that series, but I have read the Left Behind Series which I forgot to mention. I enjoyed that one too.

Shelley said...

Renee I do have a skein or hank or whatever of B & L wool that I want to make into a hat. Thanks for stopping by!

Cynthia, thanks for stopping by!

Stricken...forgot to thank you for stopping by as well!

hi shelley! first time i read a perretti book was in high school - i was reading it in the middle of the night and i was FREAKED OUT OF MY MIND. it was good though. but i tend to stay away from anything terribly suspenseful (i'm a chicken, i know).

as for "A Beautiful Mind", i love that movie. i'm an MSW (social work) and i especially liked how they did their best to depict what schizophrenia would be like in the first person. after watching it, my husband (an MD) and i had a long discussion about the whole thing. =)

Brenda said...

Hey Shelley,
I just discovered your blog and am responding to your querries about Briggs & Little 2 ply yarn. It makes great socks. especially if it is their 'Tuffy' brand. Tuffy has about 20% nylon content. Anyway, it will make a thicker sock - more like a work sock. I us 44 stitches for me or 48 for DH. And 3.25 needles. They are super warm. But you will need two skeins for a pair of adult socks.

i read all the comments and i watched a beautiful mind on tv last night ;) great things to know about you... i love these sort on iquriees!

Rhonda said...

I've updated my page with a link to your Irish Hiking Scarf. I'll be linking to the pattern once it's done and I can properly show how it came out. If I didn't thank you before ... thanks for the pattern. I love it! And you're right, it is easy :)
