Start it off, Basil.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Surfing - on waves, as opposed to the internet, as I am currently doing.

Edit: With them...

I'm like Cold Stone: you either like me, love me, or gotta have me.

I could go for some volleyball right now.  Kind of windy, though.

Nice Q, pix!

With zero guilt, I wish I were spending the day hopping from one movie theater to the next seeing all the 2007 films I want to see but haven't seen yet: No Country, There Will Be Blood, Atonement, Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The Assassination of Jesse James, Juno, Michael Clayton . . . you get the idea.

That would be great!  I wish I could join you!

I have had the crafting/art bug BAD lately.  So I wish I was home playing with my rubber stamps and pretty papers and sewing machine.

I wish I were at The Profound Desire of the Gods, starting...NOW.  I was downtown and Lara called me from bed, sick, wanted me to make her dinner and chill with her.  Not that I'm complaining about that, but I can't remember the last time she requested some caretaking, and on a day that I was finally taking for myself (I did get to Atonement).   :) C'est la vie.
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

How about "mothering"?  ;) What you just detailed is a pretty decent description of my life as a mother.  :)

Reading something not about the "Age of the -isms"
