Three Things Meme - because I have absolutely nothing to talk about

Oh, my niece (wife.imp's brother's daughter) is visiting from the Philippines. Other than that -- I have nothing. Nothing new...soooo

here is the Meme which I first saw at Undercover Angel's blog (see link in right hand column):

Three Things That Scare Me:
(the books I can fill up with this...)
1. Disease (I have a lifelong balancing act with Hemochromatosis as it is - I really would like to not add to this list)
2. Heights (My siblings thinks this stems from the fact that I fell out of a few trees when I was younger)
3. Retirement (with the way the gov't is spending - I might not live to confront this fear)

Three People Who Make Me Laugh:
1. wife.imp
2. girl.imp
3. boy.imp

Three Things I Love:
(can we repeat answers? No?...)
1. Spring
2. Fall
3. Winter - but only when it snows

Three Things I Hate:
1. Winter - immediately after the snow stops and that time when it rains/sleets but does not snow
2. Most morning shows on the radio - talktalktalkblahblahblah----NOT FUNNY!
3. Mosquitos

Three Things I Don’t Understand:
1. Going to the beach
2. Why doesn't wife.imp ever smell a dirty diaper even though the odor eminating from boy.imp's rear could knock a buzzard off of a sh@@@ wagon at 30 paces???
3. Why so many people give a damn about 'Street Cred'???

Three Things On My Desk:
1. Broken Printer
2. Empty Ink Cartridge box for said broken printer
3. Digital Camera

Three Things I’m Doing Right Now:
1. Avoiding starting dinner
2. Wondering where today's paper got to so that I can start the crossword
3. Revising the last scene in my book...I need to get to it again tonight

Three Things I Want To Do Before I Die:
1. Eco-Tourist
2. Triplets - ahem - Run a Marathon
3. Purchase the Cleveland Browns

Three Things I Can Do:
1. Clean the wax out of my ears
2. Mow the lawn
3. Remodel the bathroom and kitchen in my house (wife.imp has the lists started)

Three Things I Can’t Do:
1. Squeeze Blood from a Stone
2. Feign interest in watching another episode of 'Law and Order'
3. Sing

Three Things I Think You Should Listen To:
1. Well written poetry
2. John Huston narrating anything
3. The Doctor

Three Things You Should Never Listen To:
1. Peer Pressure
2. Pop Culture
3. Connie Chung (HUGELY disappointed with her professional ethics)

Three Things I’d Like To Learn:
1. German
2. Tagalog
3. Sketch Art - using ink as the medium

Three Favorite Foods:
1. Tsynigang
2. My sausage stuffing
3. Ham Loaf

Three Shows I Watched As A Kid:
1. The A-Team
2. Shazam!
3. The Electric Company

Three Things I Regret:
1. Not going out of my way to at least say hello to a brother and sister in our school. She dropped out in 8th grade (it might have been earlier) because she was pregnant. Her brother hung himself from the rafters of a barn a year earlier
2. Not learning to ignore peer pressure earlier in life
3. Not following through with Fencing in college. I was invited to join the team but at the same time I really got into my major and thought I would not be able to handle the time conflicts

Three Reasons Why I'm Not Going To Tag Anyone:
1. Three people read my post and one of them already did this meme
2. If they did not do it, would it reflect on how they view me or would I find out that they did not read my post..? My ego might not withstand that kind of rejection :)
3. When was the last time I ever said 'tag you're it'?


Maria said...

Remodel bathrooms!!! If I send you an airline ticket, can you come to Nebraska? Because Bing has seriously fucked up ours.

Connie Chung? Agreed.

The Electric Company! I wanted to be on that show SO badly. I just knew I could be a star.

And all the regrets...wow. I was laughing until I got to that one and then I sobered up very quickly.

You fence? I like the masks. I like the bobbing and weaving stuff that they do. And those body suits...you have to be nippy to have them fit properly....

Thanks profusely for not writing: I tag whoever reads this..because then I would have to pretend that I didn't read it...

I am not fond of MEMEs.

I like reading them, hate writing them.

dennis said...

send the ticket...before i end up getting started on wife.imp's list of remodeling:
- bathroom
- laundry room
- kitchen
- garage
- front lawn
- new carpet in the family room
- paint house exterior/deck
- paint 3 bedrooms, family room

- purchase small condo in suburbs, move out and change name...

I'm an addict to Law & Order franchise, all three of them. I'm a sucker for those kinds of shows, I guess. And the little "ding ding" sound at the beginning of the show.

Connie Chung, what a joke!

Mark said...

Purchase the Cleveland Browns? How much you got on you?

I'm with you on Law & Order though. We used to watch it a lot, but it got tiresome, and I never could handle SVU.

Mommy de Gallo said...

There was no TV in our house when I was growing up. I know, pitty me!!
We finally got one when I was a Sophomore in HS.

My mother also refused to buy me Wonder Woman Underoos. CHILD ABUSE! I tell you!

Diana said...

wow about the brother and sister. wow. WOW. I hate when I think back to people I wished I had spoken to, and I actually tried to go out of my way to talk to everyone...but still...

creative-type dad said...

The brother and sister part is horrible...

Can't even imagine.

dennis said...

betty: Law and Order and now CSI, 2 shows that have so many spin-offs that I NEED to add to my dvd collection!

Mark: I don't have all that much mulah, but IF I did there would be new management in the Brown's front offices!!

MdG: thankfully, I was just barely too old for underoos when they hit it big :)

diana,tony: I actually had repressed those memories until this meme. I did not even remember the family name until this a.m.
I think this will spinoff into a new post...

Redneck Mommy said...

Connie Cheung...I've got nothing nice to say about her or her hubs.

But the A-Team, that's a whole other story.

Whatchu talkin' bout??

Ah, Mr.T, I could be your Ms.T.
