1. I had a B&W Avedon photograph of a topless Tilda Swinton I'd ripped from a New Yorker in my extremely lame stash of adolescent porn. times were tough back before the internet. and boobies were boobies.

This post affirms everything I thought about you before, MD. You truly are too cool for school. Thanks. Loved reading this.


Only because I LURRRRVE you... I'll do it. But probably not until tomorrow, because I want everyone to see my post from today first. ;)


Yay! The Bosslady speaks! Love your answers, darling. Especially about Colin Firth. I've never had a thing for Englishmen but I'm gaga over him.

And listen to MD. Start your own blog!


BossLady speaks!!!!!


You have excellent taste in women, MD. Why am I not surprised? I loved your eclectic choices. So glad to see you didn't pick any bimbos (like Pamela Anderson.)


BossLady in the house! Alright!


Dude. You're awesome, but WTF? Sigh. Okay, okay. I'm writing it, I'm writing it. Sigh. Fuck. Did I say WTF yet?

On a happier note, good to hear from the BossLady!


To my adorable BossLady,

Without a doubt, you are my favorite person in all the land. And since you comment so infrequently, I thought I should clarify a few things so that my readers might have a better understanding of you...

1. You cannot fart on command because you do not fart. Seriously, when was the last time you cut one? Ok...when was the last time you ripped one that actually made noise?

2. Can't run a 10-minute mile? (ahem) We've been married 4 years. Never seen you run. You get tired driving a mile in the car! How you keep your girlish figure is beyond me!

3. Cook everyday? Doesn't that imply that you cook on some days? Just wondering.

4. Must I hear about Colin Firth one more time? Isn't enough that I watch the 10-hour BBC version of "Pride & Prejudice" with you twice a year? THAT'S love, baby!

5. FYI...the BossLady is not only Marty's biggest fan (she actually called in and voted for him) but she also knows all the lyrics to Marty's song "Trees."

You rock, baby! Hey, I got a question for you. What's got two thumbs and loves blow jobs?

THIS guy!

Your adoring husband

p.s. I know. It's my turn to get her tomorrow morning. I'll be in bed soon. I'm just going to read for a little bit.


OMG...you guys are too funny. I think I'm developing a crush on both of you. Can I come live with you? With my hubbie and kids? Maybe we can make it a reality show and pitch it to one of the networks. Puh-lease!


Umm, Dutch? Are you sure that was the New Yorker? Are you sure it was Tilda Swinton? And are you sure you want to be admitting that on the internets?


yeah!!!! that was the ex-cheerleader in me excited to be part of this elite blogging crowd. answers on the way ASAP. just catching up on episodes of nip/tuck.
nice to meet you BossLady.


Hey, bosslady, great to meet you at last. But I'm confused. What DOES have two thumbs and loves a blow job? I just can't imagine what the answer can be. :-)

On the I Can't list

Ballroom dancing can be wonderful, and simple. But you've got to find a good instructor and give it time. In any ballroom class, 50% of the students -- usually him -- are there under duress. Fear of dancing probably ranks up there with fear of public speaking. My late bride (of 29+ years) and I enjoyed it AFTER I'd given it enough time. It's also good low impact exercise and if your dancing partner is your life partner will improve your intimate life together.


Virgo & BaconGrease,

You two bitches are fucking funny and did not disappoint! I loved reading your choices. Too funny.

I've never understood the enormous appeal of Colin Firth. I'm not going to start now.

Thanks for playing.


Weird. I think the 7 things that you want to do before you die are EXACTLY the same 7 that I would select. Trippy.

Anne Glamore

I think Bosslady has EXCELLENT taste for listing both Billie Joe Armstrong & Mr Darcy.



why are these fucked up meme things so FUN? urgh. i spared your robust readership listing my sevens in your comments and posted on my blog instead, but i, too, now have a crush on your bosslady. i'm not feelin the universal firth love, tho. i'm more of a zach braff kinda girl, but i forgot to put him on my list. who to kick off?

Pope Benedict XVI

These are some good questions--and definitely worth answering (especially so my biographers can know more about me). I'll post my answers shortly. Thanks, Metro!


BossLady - I've had the BBC Pride and Prejudice from Netflix now for 3 weeks and can't bring myself to return it. Something's wrong with me.
MD-The appeal of Colin Firth is wrapped up somewhere in the characters of William/Mark Darcy. The poor guy could be a complete asshole but he'll never shake the whole Darcy thing. Mouth. Still. Watering.
Cookie - I loves me some Zach Braff too. But only 7 choices....I'm with ya - who can you kick off??


Dude...you might be the only person weird enough to have a crush on Jhumpa Lahiri AND Sarah Silverman. I love it. But I'm surprised you can't tie a bow tie or ballroom dance. My image of you as James Bond is ruined!


Done and posted on my site, because I am a hits-whore.

Queen of Ass

Done! Thanks for the inspiration for a Friday post!


Sounds like you and the BossLady are a good match. Did you see Technolust? Tilda Swinton at her freakiest.


You are impossible to refuse. I did my "7" here: http://citymama.typepad.com/citymama/2005/10/metrodadbecause.html

And I so have a chick crush on Jhumpa Lahiri. I love her writing. I admit I bought her first book because of her picture on the back cover. I remember thinking, "Wow. She's pretty."


Pretty darn fine meme. I might have to do it. And if you land the Pope, I'll be really impressed.


mine is done now too.



Oh Bosslady and MetroDad, your love is an inspirtation to us singles! Much like bitemycookies and mims. My 7 are on my page...it's my first meme! Thank you for creating one that did not require 100 items...who the hell ever does that without repeating?


Tater tots with ranch... seriously, I thought I was the only one who did that. And have you tried Parmesan Peppercorn? Mmmmm...

Napoleon Dynamite

Are you going to have those tater tots?


This was a great post. I added my own List of Sevens to my blog. BTW, BossLady has awesome taste in her celebrity crushes. And in real life, too. :)


Metrodad, you have great taste. Your celebrity crushes are great. Or maybe you just understand female bloggers profiles. anyway, good for you! you like interesting women.


I think YOU are my celebrity crush, MD. That list was awesome!


Wow! If I didn't love you before, I certainly do now after reading your celebrity crushes. Those are the coolest female crushes I've ever heard a guy talk about. Not a single bimbo among them. You are truly a gentleman of taste!


Awesome list, my friend. And I second you on Billy Crudup. He and Ethan Hawke must be two of the stupidest men on the entire planet. They should form a club.


I did it, and posted it on my site. I purposely didn't read yours first. Then I came back here and laughed hysterically at the ballroom dancing thing...you'll see why when you read mine.


OH MY GOD... I just read the BossLady's. She said "sing to my grandchildren" and SO DID I.
