7/7 challenge thing

I don't normally do these things (I lie) so here it goes, wither the soul, wither it goes. Always wanted to write that, no idea why:

7 things to do before I die:

1. Jump out of a plane, with a parachute.
2. Visit lots of Eastern European, former communist cities and See Lenin’s Tomb. And have a laugh at a bad idea badly executed, Communism - not the tomb, that's quite a good idea - while still thinking it might be fun to live under it for a few days.
3. Find some purpose. And motivation. And ambition.
4. Be more attractive to the opposite sex, without plastic surgery.
5. Write three novels, and win the Booker prize three times, then get a job on a building site.
6. To never take politics too seriously and become a pompous bore.
7. To read Ulysses for a laugh, or in order to impress some dullard who might think I am clever, wrong.

7 things I cannot do:

1. Eat cheese that is uncooked, it is wrong, so severely so.
2. Like Marcus Bentley’s voice (Narrator of Big Brother)
3. Like Madonna.
4. Mathematics, even basic level stuff.
5. Read the Daily Mail without throwing it on the fire after 3 pages.
6. Not laugh at people who like Celine Dion/Westlife etc.
7. Play Badminton. The cockleshutt or whatever it's called is not right, sports need balls not odd looking plastic things, yeah.

7 things that attract me to London:

1. I don't have to live there.
2. It's not the centre of the UK.
3. It has an airport that allows me to leave the country more cheaply, than say Birmingham airport.
4. If the M25 is quiet, you can leave it fairly quickly.
5. The charming unfriendliness of its inhabitants.
6. The Science and Natural history museum.
7. Downing street. I am convinced that when first visiting in 1988 at the age of 8, I saw Maggie going past in a car. Not that it indicates any type of approval for her, I was only 8.

7 things I often say:

1. Fucks sake
2. Like
3. Bollocks
4. Pehaps
5. For goodness sake (not sure why it's not "Gods sake", I'm not religious, but maybe I'm hedging my bets)
6. Tosser (I have a way with words, not a good way, but a way never the less)
7. Fair enough

7 books that I love:

Love is perhaps too strong a word for some of these, and this is off the top of my head.

1. 1984 by George Orwell
2. Money by Martin Amis
3. Live TV! The story of Tabloid TV by Chris Horrie & Adam Nathan
4. Enduring Love by Ian McEwan
5. Lenin's Tomb by David Remnick
6. The Wind up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
7. Servants of the People by Andrew Rawnsley

7 movies I watch over and over again:

1. Zulu. When I was 8 or 9, I used to watch this at my Nan’s al the time.
2. Masters of the Universe. 11 Years old or so.
3. La Haine. Watched this a fair few times, the DJ scene is the best.
4. Warriors. Used to watch this loads before going out with my mates when we were 15/16 (we didn't think we were them or anything sad like that).
5. South Park. At university.
6. I don't watch hardly any films anymore
7. They are too long.

Comments:
shuttlecock.

it has taken me about 40 mins to remember what the fucking thing was called.

thanks for that.
 
What about that film we used to watch?
