Did anyone else play the ball game sevens? You had to bounce a ball against a wall and do various tricks and whatnot? Well this isn’t the same :) Janine tagged me so I guess I’ll play along. All my sevens are in no particular order, and no one who is tagged has to play along.

    sorry for nominating you fence! i think my list would be different every day so if i had done it saturday instead of friday you may have escaped :)

    i meant to include buying a house. and buying a horse. that would be really cool and you could have your own racing colours and everything. i'm with you on the daddy long legs too! never read brideshead revisited. i watched it on tv with my mum though – the agony – it goes on *forever*!! :)

  4. Andi says:

  7. Fence says:

    Weenie, you can speak Chinese. Cool. Mandarin or Cantonese?

  8. Anne says:

    What new language?
    Can't believe I got the "kill you with my brain" reference. I've been reading you way too much, now.

  9. Fence says:

    Any new language. I want to learn Russian, but it looks very hard. French, Italian and Spanish are also on my list. Course maybe I should learn how to speak Irish properly first :)

    And seeing as you got that reference Anne I'll have to tell you that French people are getting a Serenity showing of their very own: french gobbledegook what I don't understand about the film, but according to whedonesque it is showing on Sept. 3

  10. weenie says:

    I speak an old dialect of Mandarin called Hakka. I can speak Cantonese too but not fluently, probably enough to get by. Regret not learning to read or write in Chinese though. Maybe that could be a new hobby…hmmm! :)

  11. Fence says:

    Ai ya, hwai leh

    See, tv does teach us something. These are from Firefly.

  12. NineMoons says:

  13. Fence says:

    Liou mahng? You're the liou mahng. I aint never had nuttin to do with gorram frogs

  14. NineMoons says:

    That's not what the graffiti on the walls of the bogs in Beaumonde say…
    But anyway, many thanks for including the new comments linkamadoo on the blog. It pleases me greatly, bao-bei.

  1. 24 February 2006

    […] I’ve been tagged. By the seven meme, which I did waaaay back in the mists of time. Actually, now that I think about it, it was in August, but some will have changed, so I’ll may as well do some of them again. I won’t tag anyone, cause I already tagged 7 or you. But if you feel the need then tag yourself. […]
