Scout Prime (whom you should be reading if you're not already!) has generously included me as one of the latest Eschatonians tagged on a little blogger survey. It's a welcome respite from the cascade of lousy news that's been coming down from both Madison and Washington lately. Contrary to what many conservatives believe, we liberals don't really want the Republicans to destroy our nation just so we can win more elections. We'd rather they just govern effectively and let U.S. politics become a competition of acheivement, rather than a race to the bottom.

Anyway, here we go...

Seven Things To Do Before I Die

1. Attempt to live forever. Failing that...
2. Write a novel (a goal all bloggers apparently share).
3. Finish my education.
4. Run for public office.
5. Be a guest/pundit on a radio/TV show.
6. Give Gifted-1 the fancy wedding she's always wanted.
7. Travel to every other continent (except Antarctica; I don't like the cold!).

Seven Things I Cannot Do

1. Play a musical instrument.
2. Win a public office.
3. Cook.
4. Understand the intersection between libertarianism and religious fundamentalism in the Republican party.
5. Work a job without access to the internets.
6. Sleep when one of my kids is crying.
7. Remember names (I stole that from Rorschach.)

Seven Things That Attract Me To...Blogging

1. The fame, the bling, the liquor and the wild women!
2. It helps me understand what I believe much more clearly.
3. Having a great group of people that believe what I have to say is worth reading.
4. Being able to contribute to the national dialogue, even a tiny bit.
5. It gives me good writing practice.
6. A feeling of community with other folks who care about the country.
7. It's free!

Seven Things I Say Most Often

1. "Liam/Olivia, why are you not listening to me?"
2. "Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket?"
3. "Enhance your calm, citizen."
4. "D'oh!"
5. "If you weren't already my kid, I'd kidnap you."
6. "Jesus H. Christ on a bicycle!"
