5. Oh hell, I’ll say it—hit the NYT list :diva:
6. See a Faberge Imperial Easter egg in person
7. Hold my great-grandchildren

Oh, and as an aside: 1 thing to do before I go insane: Find out WTF this Serenity thing is everybody’s talking about. *sticks big L to own forehead*)

7 things I can do:

    Whoo Hoo, Shan! Nice list. You know, It’s funny . . .I almost put Angelina Jolie on my list too. :nod:

    BTW. SERENITY is a movie, written and directed by Joss Whedon, based onthe series FIREFLY that was cancelled after one season. I saw it tonight! Great movie!! :cheer:

    Great list Shan. I liked Sasha’s too…I went and looked.

    And isn’t Angelina on all our lists? :wink:

    Working up mine now……

    I copied you, but left off Angie. She is HOT though.

    Another ditto on Angelina. She’s just a beautiful woman.

    My female crush is Queen Latifah. With Catherina C-Z a close second. Mebbe because I find more women worth looking at these days than guys? :shrug: Although Hugh Jackman goes a long way toward filling the gap.


    Anyway. I can’t read in cars, either, unless we’re on a straight stretch of Interstate. So Kansas is good, western NC not.

    My original engagement ring came from Tiffany’s (back in the day when you didn’t have to be Donald Trump to afford such a thing), but was burgled twenty years ago. :cry: Now my wish is for one of those wonker three-stone anniversary rings, but the last time we went to NY we actually went into Tiffany’s to price them (because, seriously, would I want to get one at Sam’s Club?) I realized it wasn’t gonna happen without a lottery win. Or the discovery of a hitherto unknown rich relative.

    On your “what attracts me to a guy” list, I’m with you on #’s 1, 3, 5 and 7. These days, though, I have to say being filthy rich wouldn’t hurt. :nod:

    Not that I’m shallow or anything. . .
