Ten on Tuesday
1. What two cities should be moved closer together?
All of them. I am too impatient to travel long distances to the places I most want to visit. And the places I most want to visit are always changing depending on the weather, time, hormones, etc.
2. What was the first plane ride you took?
I flew from Chicago to Washington (the state) to visit my aunt when I was 13. Scariest. Thing. Ever. I was convinced at every bout of turbulence we were going down. I might have screamed once.
3. What continent would you most like to visit?
Europe. No wait, Africa. Or South America. Oh, but Asia might be nice this time of year. But definitely North America and those Canadians, eh? And Australia. Antartica: hecks no.
4. What’s your favorite place to window-shop?
Aggie's, a boutique in downtown Saratoga. It's the closest I'll ever get to $200 jeans, a $200 t-shirt, and $200 underthings. Not sure what makes $200 unmentionables different than my Target ones, but whatever.
5. What’s the least fun you’ve ever had at a place specifically tailored for fun?
I went out on New Year's Eve to several establishments in which I assume others were having fun. So much fun they trampled me, threatened Corey, and pulled each other's hair out. It was super cool.
6. You’re stuck on an island with plenty of food, a companion, and a relatively stress-free lifestyle. What do you say when the rescue ship comes?
"Thanks for stopping by!"
7. Which day of the week do you look forward to most?
Friday. I wear jeans to work. My co-worker's babies come in to visit. I go home and put my feet up. I stay up late doing absolutely nothing, knowing I can sleep in in the morning (although I never do). And I treat myself to greasy, fatty, bloaty junk.
8. What’s your favorite place to enjoy the great outdoors?
I love, love, love the Adirondacks. There's six million acres to explore. For serious.
9. What’s on your “to do” list this summer?
Camp, hike, kayak, repeat.
10. Which natural disaster freaks you out the most?
This is silly. Remember the movie The Day After Tomorrow? Where NYC gets flooded and then freezes and everyone has to move to Mexico? Yeah, that is what freaks me out. I hated that movie, but I still watch it occasionally because Jake Gyllenhaal is easy on the eyes.
