Seven Things

I have been tagged by Gary to do this, so here we go.

1. Seven things to do before I die:
- find a cure for baldness
- invent a cure for baldness if one is not found
- learn to be kind to those who are further down the road in baldness
- stop obsessing about baldness
- join the United States Supreme Court as the first Asian American Justice.
- after joining the United States Supreme Court, grope Justice Ruth Ginsburg and give Justice John Paul Stevens a big wedgie (Don't read into it too much, but I am kinda serious about the wedgie.)

- learn to ask for directions. It will become handy when I fulfill the dream of becoming a space ship captain. "Hey, wasn't that Saturn? I thought we were supposed to make a right after Saturn." "Shut up! I know what I'm doing."

2. Seven things I cannot do:
- drink coffee without spilling. I blogged about it here.
- cry to Hillary Duffy movies
- stop obsessing about the rapid depletion of my hair
- visit my dentist without getting yelled at (even though I brush and floss religiously)
- repair cars
- dance
- sing

3. Seven things that attract me to my wife:
- N/A
- N/A
- N/A
- N/A
- N/A
- N/A
- Okay, I guess I should mention at least one female trait that is sure to captivate and ravage my heart. Women who can write brilliantly with flair and creativity fascinate me endlessly. How a woman writes reflects not just her intellect, but also provides a glimpse into her inner beauty and heart. No matter how well men can write, I will never associate the term "inner beauty" with them because, well, they are men, and men are never beautiful to me. Sorry Brotha Buck and others like you. You too, Gary.

Now if you are a female blogger who feels tempted to think I am talking about you and to interpret my comments on your blog as romantic vibes, oh how presumptuous of you to do that. I mean, really.

4. Seven things I say most often:
- Shut up. I know what I'm doing.
- Okay, you win. I don't know what I'm doing.
- When is the baby due? (Actually not any more ever since the little episode involving a woman who wasn't even pregnant. I will talk about it one day, but not now.)
- I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and dogonit, people like me. (I say that just to be funny, not in pursuit of self-affirmation. Really. I'm serious).
- The Best Dog in the World
- That is ... like .... really weak. Truly feeble.
- I didn't do it (This after years of having a reputation of constantly plotting things).

5. Seven books (or series) I love
- The Lord of the Rings
- The Brothers Karamazov
- What is so Amazing about Grace
- Chronicles of Narnia
- Essays by Philip Yancy
- The Great Divorce
- The Screwtape Letters

6. Seven movies I watch over and over again (or would watch over and over again if I had the time)
- Office Space ******
- Twelve Angry Men
- Forrest Gump
- The Fellowship of The Ring
- The Chariots of Fire
- The Fiddler On the Roof
- Amadeus

7. Seven people I want to join in, too:
- American Girl
- Brotha Buck
- Elevated
- Emerging Grace
- Max
- Oricon

Ginsburg?!? Ewwwww.

Sooooooo -- you are obsessed with baldness eh? I can't tell it by your picture because I can't see it very well.

What is so amazing about Grace? Life itself. We cannot live without grace. Without Grace we all woulld be lost and that would be the worse thing in the world. Grace is forgiveness and we all need that. I could go on and on but I'll shoot you a break.

Did you ask someone who wasn't pregnant when their baby is due? That is not cool, David.

At December 08, 2005 6:55 PM, Blogger David Cho said...

Yes, Jeje, it was a total fiasco. Now, I don't acknowledge a woman's pregnancy even if her tummy looks extremely obvious until she brings it up.

Gig, thanks. What is So Amazing about Grace is a book by Phil Yancy. It is outstanding.

Love that C.S. Lewis made your top 7 pick of books more than once. He is an amazing writer with beautiful insight. I am extremely excited to see how they did putting together the movie "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" turns out. I am going opening night with the hope of magic!

#3 also said "your wife (or significant other or FRIEND)." How sad you don't have any friends.

Answer to your question on my blog. Is Buck taking me on the cruise? No, it is his younger brother, wife, and family. Buck did;; however,he did fly me to Texas this past summer.

I promise to answer this tag over the weekend, David. I have to get my computer back up and running at home. The wall socket needs to be I have no power to my puter. I'm fixing it this weekend.

I sure can't tell from your photo that you might be bald, or are you skilled with Photoshop?

At December 09, 2005 9:58 PM, Blogger David Cho said...

Well, the picture is pretty dark, so the hair looks thicker. No photoshop involved, but I should have taken the photo with more light

At December 09, 2005 11:27 PM, Blogger Gary Means said...

Photoshop? Did somebody say Photoshop?!! hehe Sorry, David, I couldn't resist. Bad Gary, Bad!

I don't know if I know seven other bloggers other than you all... I'll try (smoke rising from my ears now)

At December 10, 2005 10:29 AM, Blogger Elevated said...

Mean, mean man! Fine, I'll did it for Noah :P You didn't look bald to me. I was too distracted by that growth on your chin....anyone talk to you about that? kekeke JK!!!!

At December 10, 2005 11:33 AM, Blogger Gary Means said...


I took the picture of the bald David Cho off my blog. I'll send you a copy though.

At December 10, 2005 6:32 PM, Blogger David Cho said...

Oh no, Gary, that was beautiful

- learn to ask for directions.

This is the best part! When you can do this, you will be a real man.

Women who can write brilliantly with flair and creativity fascinate me endlessly.


Now if you are a female blogger who feels tempted to think I am talking about you and to interpret my comments on your blog as romantic vibes, oh how presumptuous of you to do that.

*sigh* A girl can dream, can't she?

I love Fiddler on the Roof. Tevi's dialogue with God is great. I love how he talks to him like he's his best friend.
