more meme: 7 things

I got back from my 1 week trip yesterday and I’ve got nothing culinary to whip up & tell the tale. I was tagged by both Poco-Cocoa and Milk & Honey for the 7 things meme while I was away, so with the fridge and cupboards bare, now seems like the perfect opportunity.

seven things
7 things I’d like to do before I die:
1. Travel everywhere with Cornelius.
2. Write a cookbook.
3. Be in a band that sings only rounds.
4. Open up a breakfast restaurant.
5. Get paid what I’m worth.
6. Own a home.
7. Ride my bike from Vancouver to Seattle.

7 things I cannot do:
1. Run a marathon.
2. Eat a banana.
3. See my life without Cornelius in it.
4. Ride my bike hands-free.
5. Keep my desktop uncluttered.
6. Make a great pie dough.
7. Eat jello.

7 things that attract me to blogging:
1. Writing on a daily basis.
2. Having a reason to take more photos.
3. Organizing my recipes online.
4. Finding like-minded people over the interweb.
5. Keeping a record of what I’ve accomplished.
6. Feedback.
7. Getting inspired to try new things.

7 things I say most often:
1. Dude! (tho Cornelius says this phrase is past the ironic stage)

    Thanks Rachel! When I looked at your own profile, I noticed that we have very similar tastes in movies & music! I totally love Drugstore Cowboy and I’ve seen Apples in Stereo live so many times! Plus, I loved Sarah Vowell’s “the partly cloudy patriot” too.
