Going Out of Town

Hi! Being in Nebraska for July 4th is like being in downtown Beirut, so we're outta here! I've never been real wild about fireworks, anyway, and they are just horrible here. Our poor little dog, who has never been afraid of fireworks, peed in the house last year because every time she tried to go outside there was another huge BOOM from an illeagal, commercial firework. So, orginally, we made these plans to get her out of town. Now that she's gone, we're goin anyway.

So, I'll be out of commission for a couple of days. My hubby asked what I wanted to take to the cabin with me and I said, "A book." That's all I want.

So, to hold you over until then, I nabbed this off of Jay.

40 Questions

1. Have you ever been searched by the cops?
No—I’m waaaaayyy too ticklish for that!

2. Do you close your eyes on roller coasters?
Yes, because I’m a weenie.

1993 in Syracuse NY. Actually, we had the dog pull us on the sled.

4. Would you rather sleep with someone else, or alone?
I am such a bad sleep partner, my husband sometimes wishes I’d sleep by myself, I’m sure. The tossing and turning and talking in my sleep drives him nuts!

5. Do you believe in ghosts?
Yep. I even did a “cleansing” of our new house. I have a way too active imagination.

Yes. Do other’s consider me creative? Obviously not the people who hire and pay creative people.

Yes, for all my opinion matters on that subject.

8. Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie?

Not without a cheat sheet.

11. Have you ever been awake for 48 hours straight?

12. What's your favorite commercial?

Mountain cedar. The worst part of living in San Antonio.

14. If you're driving in the middle of the night, and no one is around do you run red lights?
No, cause I’d still get caught.

If anyone else knew, it wouldn’t be a secret.

That’s baseball, right? Are those my only choices?

29. What shoe size do you have?

30. Do you truly hate anyone?
Yes, but I’ve tried to move on. A person who does hateful things and enjoys it is easy to hate.

I guess Classic Rock. But if I hear Sweet Home Alabama one more time I’m gonna have to crawl through the radio wires and strangle someone.

32. If you could sleep with one famous person, who would it be?
The latest obsession is Tony Curran. He’s Marcus in Underworld Evolution. And he’s a Scotsman—I have a thing for Scottish men.

40. Have you ever been punched in the face?
Heaven forbid!

"5. Do you believe in ghosts?
Yep. I even did a “cleansing” of our new house. I have a way too active imagination."

But, maybe they were nice ghosts? Anyway, Sylvia Browne says to just tell them to "go home" when people ask her about ghosts in their homes.

Having been to and across Nebraska several times, where exactly is there a cabin where you can escape the fireworks? I can relate to your travails with dogs and fireworks. Our dog use to freak whenver there was thunder or anything that remotely sounded like thunder, including fireworks. He use to shake like a leaf (pardon the overused metaphor).

What book did you take? Was it any good?

JD--I swore I responded to this, but it didn't come up! Sorry about that.

You'll know by now that we went to Niobrara State Park, and it worked! We didn't hear a single pop or whistle.

I'm going to write a short review of the book I read. It wasn't all that great, but it was a pretty good little mystery.
