Seven Songs

I've been tagged my Meljoy. So here are

Seven Songs I'm enjoying right now
(well, now-ish!):

Tom Lehrer - I Hold Your Hand In Mine
Gogol Bordello - Start Wearing Purple
Radiohead - Karma Police
Genesis - Return of the Giant Hogweed
Jellyfish - The King is Half Undressed
Sex Pistols - Holiday in the Sun
Kris Kristofferson - Help Me Make It Through The Night

This is my first meme-tag thing, so I've no idea how you are supposed to tag other people. So if you're reading this - you're tagged!

I've also been tagged by Mary, so here's my list from her memes (much longer, this one):

Seven things to do before I die.
Dive with whale sharks.
Get solvent.
Eat truffles.
Direct a play professionally.
Play in a band.
Get Grand Master Bowman status at archery.
Stop breathing.

Seven things I cannot do.
Pick up a spider.
Eat tomatoes.
Spend a day without checking my email.
Listen to opera.
Watch ballet.
Touch my nose with my tongue.
Refuse a meme-tag, by the looks of it.

Seven things that attract me to my spouse/partner.

Her body.
Her sense of humour.
Her fabulous cooking.
Her patience.
Her smile.
Her musical taste.
Everything else about her.

Seven things I say most often.

I Love You.

Seven books (or series) I love.
Stephen King's Dark Tower series.
Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch novels.
Conan-Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories.
Harold Pinter's The Dumb Waiter.
Spike Miligan's war memoirs.
Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.
Anything by Bill Bryson.

Seven movies I watch over and over.

The Shawshank Redemption.
Duck Soup.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
It's A Wonderful Life.
Donnie Darko.

Seven people I want to join in.
Mel (this bit!).
Thom Yorke.

I agree with the hitchhikers on your best read list. Have you read the dirk gently stuff - i'm sure thats a yes. its just that i've reread it recently and thor with a fridge on his back is just Douglas Adams at his most bizarre. I miss that dude!!
Have you ever had a go at reading Harry Harrison? i.e Stainless Steel rat and Bill the Galactic Hero?

OK, I've done it.

But I didn't do the booklist cos I did one of those for someone else just the other day, which I'll post separately probably.

And I didn't do the spouse/partner bit because I have neither a spouse nor a partner (though I might make one up, because it would be interesting to pretend I'm a different person to the one my lists show me to be...).
