"Three Things" Quizzilla


I stole this quizzilla from another website. In its entirety, it features 20+ "three things" and I'll break them up over the next few weeks so as not to overwhelm.

1) Three things I plan to do before I die:
Write a book, spend a year in Italy, maybe raise some Alpacas

2) Three things I can do:
Play the piano (poorly), ice skate, whip up cold hors d'oeuvres on a moment's notice

3) Three things I cannot do:
Sing (well), snowboard, go to bed early

4) Three things I notice/find attractive about the opposite sex:
Eyes, humor/wit, lack of pretense

5) Three books I love:
The Awakening by Kate Chopin, The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway, The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion.

1) Three things I plan to do before I die: eat Taco Bell for the first time, learn when to use "effect" versus "affect", take Rosie O'Donnell with me.

2) Three things I can do: make a good sandwich, make LP go from loving me to wondering why she's marrying me in one sentence (see response to question #4), turn any movie title into a porn movie title in under 3 seconds (see why am i not rich blog)

3) Three things I cannot do: feign interest in work-talk with people i work with outside of work, make people's heads explode by staring at them (not for lack of trying), fathom how Arrested Development was taken on the air yet shitshows like Yes Dear last forever.

4) Three things I notice/find attractive about the opposite sex: Left boob, right boob, and yes if there was a third boob I would notice that too. (LP, we're still on for 5/6, right?)

5) Three books I love: Gone for Good by Harlan Coben, The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, The Stinky Cheese Man by Jon Scieszka.

1) Three things I plan to do before I die: visit/hike/see the Grand Canyon; run the Boston Marathon (check); retire.

2) Three things I can do: Become winded walking up a flight of stairs; have an uncanny ability to see an actor/actress in a movie and whip out some one-liner role they played in a sub-par movie years ago; make a mean bloody mary

3) Three things I cannot do: balance my checkbook; hit my driver off of the tee; listen to country music

4) Three things I notice/find attractive about the opposite sex: Smell; smile and (baby got) back. And the boob thing.

5) Three books I love: “In Harm’s Way” by Doug Stanton; “Darkness Take My Hand” by Dennis Lehane; and “A Good Walk Spoiled” by John Feinstein. I’m reading “Brutal”, Kevin Weeks’ book. Someone should run him over when they see him.

1. Finish my f-in master's degree, go to Africa, get a dog.

2. Curl my tongue, tap dance, and make a mean chocolate chip cookie.

3. Be early for anything, a backbend, say no to Entemann's crumb cake.

4. A freshly shaven face, back of the neck, strong arms.

5. "To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee is my all-time favorite book. "In Cold Blood" by Truman Capote, "The Year of Magical Thinking" by Joan Didion.
