FridayQ: Escape

Posted on Friday, June 4th, 2004

Dave!What is your favorite way to escape from everyday life? A good movie, and it doesn't matter if it's in the theater or on DVD at home. As long as the story is absorbing, it's an easy escape for me. Oddly enough, if asked the same question just five years ago my answer would have been "a good book." Am I getting lazy?

When was the last time you made an escape? Just last night. Where did you go? I've recently returned home from a month of traveling, and pulled my motorcycle back out of storage then rode around town for about a half-hour. Every time I hop on my bike it's an escape.

If you could escape to anywhere on earth right now, where would that be? I'm tempted to say Edinburgh, Scotland because it's my favorite place on earth right now. But I've been there a half-dozen times already, so I would probably pick someplace entirely new... perhaps the Greek Islands.

FQ DARE: Post your passport photo (or your driver's license photo if you don't have a passport). I don't take very good photos to begin with, but any photo that you're going to be stuck with for 4 years (driver's license) or 10 years (passport), is guaranteed to be even worse that usual. Oh well. Given that most of the time people see my passport I am jet-lagged to a near-comatose state, the photo probably looks better than I do to the poor immigration agent...

Now go take the FridayQ yourself... I double-dare you.

    We used to go to movies all the time. Maybe we can go again sometime. I’m sure my husband wouldn’t mind! Then we can have pizza with fingernail clipping topping.

  2. Dave2 says:

    AHHHHHHH! I had finally erased that horror from my memory! Thank you so very much for making me relive it all over again! I could never decide if the fingernail clipping or the nudist thing was more disturbing. Perhaps it was the combination of both? As if I didn’t have enough trouble sleeping already…

  3. Michelle says:

    At least it would be a nudist with tidy fingernails.

  4. Dave2 says:

    That’s not helping…
