7×7 Facts About Me

We now interrupt your regularly scheduled programming with the Seven Meme, which Kelli of Love’s Cool asked me to complete. No food post today–just some idiosyncracies about me.

Seven Things To Do Before I Die:

  1. Visit Paris again.
  2. Go on a road trip, visiting every state in the continental U.S.
  3. Get married.
  4. Meet the “First Lady of Chocolate,” Alice Medrich.
  5. Learn how to cook good Chinese food.
  6. Go on another mission (goodwill) trip.
  7. Learn the rules of French pronunciation, so I can discuss desserts intelligently. I know you generally drop every last syllable, except __________ but not _________.
  8. (sorry, couldn’t narrow it down) See my favorite actor, Ralph Fiennes, perform live on stage.

Seven Things I Cannot Do:

  1. Work with chocolate without staining my fingers, clothes or face brown.
  2. Whistle.
  3. Enjoy alcoholic beverages. Every time I try, I contort my face as if I’m going to be sick because of the taste. I like cooking with alcohol, though.
  4. Live without the Internet.
  5. Be in a career that I’m not passionate about.
  6. Go through life without friends or family.
  7. Roll my “r”s.

Seven Things That Attract Me to Blogging:

  1. Meeting a bunch of cool people in real life, such as at the Amateur Gourmet’s second birthday party, Newsroom lunch with Nic (of The Baking Sheet), Clotilde’s (of Chocolate & Zucchini) NYC bloggers meetup, NYC bloggers potluck, and a dessert trade with Kelli of (Love’s Cool).
  2. Imparting knowledge to others.
  3. “Chatting” with people via comments.
  4. Learning about innovative restaurants, recipes and ingredients without the media hype.
  5. Improving the detail I pay attention to food.
  6. The freedom in writing about whatever I want.
  7. Telling people about my blog is a great conversation starter.

  2. Yeah.

  7. No way.

    Um, about your movies … does a trilogy count as ONE flick? I don’t think so, Su Good. 😉

    About you tagging me … OK. I’ll bite. I’ll do your seven things meme. Will try to post it tomorrow on Bite by Byte. Thanks for sending it my way!

    We have to start the campaign to get Pretty Woman running on TV again. For awhile it was always on, now I never see it. Glad to see someone else enjoys it too 🙂

    Shout if you want good Chinese recipes. I am not Chinese and do not use a wok but my friends prefer my dishes to those made by their Chinese friends! Mine are easy and low fat too.

    One of the things I don’t get to do on Slice or A Hamburger Today is participate in off-topic memes like this one, 7×7, which Jessica “Su Good Eats” just tagged me with. What do readers there care what movies……
