  7. ...Learn to stop procrastinating.

Seven Things I Can Do:

  1. Lick my own nose
  2. Put up shelves (far harder than you might think)

  4. Feign confidence

  6. Fake a convincing Scots accent

Seven Things That I Find Really Attractive About The Opposite Sex:

(I’ve never done the hettie thing, so this is a really tricky one. I suppose if “really attractive” can incorporate the qualities I admire in my male friends then I can give it a shot…)

  1. Single mindedness
  2. Confidence in their own geekdom
  3. Ability to tell jokes
  4. Indignance

  6. Open and unabashed appreciation of sex
  7. That I don’t have to have sex with them

Seven Things That I Find Really Attractive About The Same Sex:

  1. Soulfulness
  2. Emotional awareness and expressivity
  3. Strength and vulnerability
  4. Wit/humour (and women’s humour is not the same as men’s, that’s for sure)
  5. Curves – the more the better
  6. Soft skin…everywhere
  7. Taste *deep sigh*

Seven Things I Say The Most:

  1. Fuck it
  2. Bugger me blue!
  3. Er…./Mmmm/….Aaaaah (or indeed any other form of filled pause)
  4. OK? (rhetorical reinforcement, not an actual enquiry)
  5. Ultimately
  6. Shitfuckarsewank
  7. They were/it is/it could be “challenging”

Seven Books I Love:

  1. Trumpet: Jackie Kay
  2. The House of Sleep: Jonathan Coe
  3. The World’s Wife: Carol Ann Duffy
  4. Tales of the City series: Armistead Maupin
  5. The Winter’s Tale: Shakespeare
  6. The Passion: Jeanette Winterson
  7. Nights at the Circus: Angela Carter

And should anyone care to compare and contrast, I am setting this meme free!
Go! Run with it…
