Love all the ones about the ball, especially, "Just give me the ball." I say that all the time, to my 49-year-old HUSBAND! He's broken so damn many things around here! Grrrr!

I think your list of 7 things you want to do is totally do-able. Go for it!

Well, I'm hugely impressed that you could name three British chefs. And I'm with you on the opposite sex list. And the 7 things I'm doing now. And eerily enough, on the 7 things I often say. Ya think it's a house-with-boys thing?

Mean Mom said...

Did you make awful coffee in the office, so that they wouldn't ask you to make it again? ;0)

LOL! I don't know why boys always want to play ball in the house, but it's annoying isn't it?

I couldn't help but notice that you don't seem keen on many savoury foods. Hmmm.... ;0)

Thanks for doing the tag. I enjoyed it!
