Seventy Times Seven

Suburbia has graced me with an award... and a meme. Probably best to do both at the same time.
Thank you Suburbia!

So. Sevens...

7 Things I plan to do before I die:

~Finish getting my pilots license (halfway now!)
~Speak Italian, French, Spanish and Japanese fluently
~Do photographic work in almost every country of the world
~Walk on the wall in China and ride the Orient Express
~Live in Europe for a while, then retire in Italy
~Perfect my tango
~Learn to play the violin

7 Things I do now:

~Dance & Sing
~Explore & dream
~Try new things, often

7 Things I can't do:

Can't is a 4 letter word that doesn't cross my lips.
I'll list 7 things I won't do.

~Invest directly in the stock market
~Lie, steal or cheat
~Use anyone; ever
~Give up when things are tough
~Live in the past

7 Things that attract me in the opposite sex:

~Thoughtfulness and kindness
~Honesty, integrity and honor
~Humour and wit
~Moral strength

7 Things I say most often:

~I love you
~Please and thank you
~Yay! Great! Fantastic! Beautiful! Wonderful!
~It's going to be alright
~Good morning
~Hello and good-bye

7 Celebrities that I admire:

Let's just go with famous people, not necessarily celebs.

~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
~Sojourner Truth
~Princess Diana
~Leonardo da Vinci
~Mother Theresa
~King James I of Scotland
~Amelia Earhart

7 Favourite foods:

~Fresh fruits & vegetables
~Honey & peanut butter
~Good wine

7 Bloggers who need to do this:

Ok, here's the deal. If you do the meme, then you get the award. Let me know if you do it, because I'd love to come by and read all about you!

And, as I have been errant in delivering this one from Vanilla to it's rightful recipients:

We haven't met anyone in the blogosphere that we wouldn't consider to be a friend. If you come here to visit Viaggiatore and I, then please put this in your pocket when you leave, our gift to you, from our hearts.

You sound like a very positive person, who squeezes every drop of enjoyment from life and makes it fun for those around her too......But we already knew that!

Boy, wanderlust is the perfect name for you, with all of that travel. :)

My grandma used to make me peanut butter and honey sandwiches. Yummy. Now she makes them for Maya.

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Hey Miss Molly!

Are you going to do the meme?


So... don't you still eat peanut butter and honey? YUM.

You inspire on a level that few attain!

Suburbia said...

Thanks so much for playing Scarlett, I so enjoyed reading your answers. What is Mexalianesethai? I don't think I've ever heard of it.
I think I could learn a lot from your outlook on life :)

Congratulations on the well-deserved awards, Scarlett!

I think I did this meme awhile ago or a similar one, but it was delightful reading your answers.

Do you not think it strange that Mother Teresa and Princess Diana died on the same day? I've always thought they were traveling together.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

I was wrong about the death dates, but it was the same week: Diana on August 31, 1997 and Mother Teresa on Sept. 5, 1997.

Hi! Cool answers! What was that long word in your favourite foods?


Wanderlust Scarlett said...


You inspire on many levels, all of them quite lofty. So, I consider myself humbled in excellent company.

Hey Suburbia!

*MUAH* Thank you. It was your idea, you know.
Mexalianesethai is:
Not all together, but when I don't have enough room to put all of my favorite foods, this one works well. Just scrunch them all up together.
Except that there isn't any chocolate in there, and that's a problem.

Dear Hearts,

I was just devastated when they died, I remember everything about it like it was yesterday. So tragic and sad.
It was like the world lost two of the rare angels who walk around in human form, and the stars shone less brightly for it.

Hey BS5!

Em... see my response to Suburbia just above this, she asked the same question...

Ooh I've never had peanut butter and honey together, but I just got a big jar of honey yesterday...what a coincidence ;)

I like this meme. I'll keep you posted on if/when I join in :)

You are ambitious and sooo very that about you and your blog!!!Not very many people dream of getting a pilot's license and speak various languages!!
