Ten on Tuesday (vol. 13)

April 20, 2010 at 4:08 PM 6 comments

First things first:
Happy Birthday to my “little” brother Andrew!! I’m so sorry we can’t spend your birthday with you, Drew, but know we’re thinking about you!

Also, the first thing I found out today was that our flight out on Wednesday was cancelled 38 hours in advance. Darn it! We’re rescheduled for Monday, which is 10 days after we were scheduled to fly out. It’s also our 4th attempt to fly home.

And now, Ten on Tuesday:

1.  What two cities should be moved closer together?
Paris, France and Austin, Texas – without a doubt!

2. What was the first plane ride you took? 
I’m not 100% sure, but I think it was to visit my maternal grandparents in North Dakota. It’s likely that it was on a Northwest flight from San Antonio to Memphis to Minneapolis to Fargo or Grand Forks. From there, we would have had about an hour drive to my grandparents’ house.

3. What continent would you most like to visit? 
South America. If you ask me on another day, I might answer something else though. Today just strikes me as a South American sort of day.

4. What’s your favorite place to window-shop?
In front of a frozen yogurt shop window. Yummmm.

5. What’s the least fun you’ve ever had at a place specifically tailored for fun?
This is a good question, but I can’t think of an answer! I didn’t have much fun on my trip to NYC a few years back, but the city itself doesn’t really qualify as “a place specifically tailored for fun.”

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? 
“You didn’t bring Shiner or TexMex? Pfft. Try again.”
7. Which day of the week do you look forward to most? 
I think I look forward to Thursdays the most, because I look forward to a relaxed Friday at work (yay jeans!) and I’m excited about the promise of two days off from work.

8. What’s your favorite place to enjoy the great outdoors? 
That’s not even a question! Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland…look it up. It’s awesome.

9. What’s on your “to do” list this summer? 
Swim at several of the local outdoor pools, travel, sew a new duvet cover for our bed and maintain our garden.

10. Which natural disaster freaks you out the most? 
Right now? Volcanoes
When I’m not annoyed by flight restrictions? Earthquakes. This is due to their unpredictable nature. I was going to say hurricanes, but there are warnings on those suckers, so they got downgraded on the freak-scale.

    For my #1, I was all sentimental and chose the city where my best friend lives. Paris would definitely be tied for first though!

    I wear jeans to work every day… so Friday’s aren’t that special… except that Saturday come after that.

    WINDOW shopping at a frozen yogurt place??? No!

    I love your Europe answers! For some reason Europe didn’t pop into my head as an option when I was thinking of places… but I 100% agree on the Switzerland answer. If I could just go there whenever I wanted to enjoy the outdoors, that would be AMAZING!! 🙂

    Thursdays are good days… I must agree there!

    Yeah, volcanoes freak me out too. As do tornadoes.
