I have been tagged! How exciting, it's my first time, and it's thanks to the always charming Ellen Meister. (Ellen, btw, is at a very exciting point in her writing career, having just received the ARCs for her upcoming blockbuster novel. Check out her blog for more info.)

So the meme she passed along to me is called 7 things. Here you go:

Seven things to do before I die:

2. create a beautiful piece of art

4. dance a tango
5. quit smoking
6. kiss Keanu Reeves
7. come up with some better/deeper aspirations in life

Seven things I cannot do:

LOVE your responses, Susan. I would love to dance a tango but it's not in the cards for this woman who must lead.

So glad you played! And hey, we have Moonstruck in common! God, how I love that movie.

I'm digging your new pic and blog look, Myf.

Thanks for letting me play, E! It was fun. We'd have had other responses in common, but I didn't want to be a big copycat. Besides, I knew I'd never top your "cannot vote Republican" -- that was priceless.

And thank you both for not giving me the gears over Keanu.

That's some weird, eclectic book list you got there. I'm glad to see something silly like Christopher Moore made the list!

Look for my list soon.
