Today's Question(s):

What is your opinion on Roller Coasters ?

LOVE them! The bigger, faster, twister; the better.

Who here likes to ride in the font car ?
Don't mind it. I will ride anywhere.

Have you ever kept your eye shut during the ride ?
Fell asleep once on "The Shockwave" in Six Flags over Texas. Hot day, LONG night before, and that ride up the hill just lulled me to sleep.

Bonus Question:
What is your favorite Airport to fly into or out of ?

Haven't flown much, or in a LONG time. Never minded going into or out of DFW.

so of course we have to ask
What Airport to you try to avoid flying in or out of ?

Detroit or Atlanta. Both tie for me. Although I did get front row seats at a good show in Detroit one day. Sitting at a lounge waiting for a plane, one of the luggage trams caught fire just outside the bar. Stood in the doorway with all the other drunks and laughed and critiqued the performance of the Airport firemen while they put it out. They were pissed we didn't leave.


Just for Fun:
What was the last thing that had you "Hollerin'"

One of my sons for throwing a beanball to his youngest brother because he was "being a pain!"

Do you have one dominate color of clothes in your wardrobe ?
Probably blue.

Did you ever got to "summer Camp" when you were younger ?

LOL no! I grew up and lived where the "Summer Camps" were located. Never felt the need to "go" someplace just like my everyday activities anyway all summer.

Was it day camp or sleep over camp?
Life camp.

What is the silliest thing you have every taken to the beach ?
A big umbrella. I mean, isn't the whole purpose of going to a beach to lay out in the sun and maybe swim a bit. If I wanted to lay in the shade I wouldn't have to leave the backyard. I lugged that thing out to my spot, set it up and popped myself down in the shade and thought "well, this is just about stupid now isn't it!" Never brought it back out except when the kids were little.

I'm glad you posted early today Karla, I can answer it now and then not be tempted to come back on line tonight. I've really got to get some study done, just three days until my first exam!

Today's Question(s):
Since today is Roller Coaster day

What is your opinion on Roller Coasters ? I've never gone on a roller coaster and I don't plan to in the near future, I'm a coward when it comes to rides.

Bonus Question:

What is your favorite Airport to fly into or out of ? I like Coolangatta which is on the Gold Coast in south east Queensland, Australia. It's a beautiful view of Surfers Paradise and the whole coast line as you come in. I love flying though and enjoy the view from up there no matter what it is.

Coolangatta Airport...

so of course we have to ask
What Airport to you try to avoid flying in or out of ? I've only been to local ones in Australia so I can't think of any that I would avoid. Internationally I'm sure there would be a lot I would avoid.


Extra Credit Question:

How many time have you wanted to say to someone
(lol you may not be able to say it to them but you can vent here )

I know you mean well, but I really wish you would stop calling me all the time because your bored and want me to entertain you! I've got other things I need to be doing. There I said it.


Just for Fun:

What was the last thing that had you "Hollerin'" I never raise my voice, but I would say my daughter would be the last one to see my temper.
Do you have one dominate color of clothes in your wardrobe ? Probably blue and black.
Did you ever got to "summer Camp" when you were younger ? I went to a creative arts camp, it was great we learned all sorts of different mediums including film, drama, music, painting and sculpting. I loved it.
Was it day camp or sleep over camp? Sleep over, I was there for a week.
What is the silliest thing you have every taken to the beach ?
I can't really think of anything except alcohol. Not a good idea to drink and night swim, we were young and you never think anything bad could happen when you're that age. Nothing did happen to us but you hear all the time about people doing that and getting killed. Bondi (the Sydney beach where I lived) is notorious for really strong rips that can take you in an instant if you don't know what you are doing.

Word of the Day:
supererogatory \soo-puhr-ih-ROG-uh-tor-ee\ , adjective:
1. Going beyond what is required or expected.
2. Superfluous; unnecessary.

A bit like some of my answers


Today is:
National Fudge Day
Cracker Jack Day
Fresh Veggies Day
No Orange Clothes Day I think I'm fairly safe there, I never wear orange.
Roller Coaster Day
National Hollerin' Contest Day[/quote]

Today's Question(s):
Since today is Roller Coaster day

What is your opinion of Roller Coasters ?


They're fine to watch others enjoy, but I have no interest in riding them.

Bonus Question:

What is your favorite Airport to fly into or out of ?


When I can find a direct flight to my desired destination, which doesn't happen often, I prefer Dane County Regional Airport. Generally for long trips, though, we go to Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport. It's big enough to be a hub, but hasn't gotten to the point of being its own small city.

so of course we have to ask
What Airport do you try to avoid flying in or out of ?


Chicago O'Hare and DFW - they're both awful.

Extra Credit Question:

How many time have you wanted to say to someone
(lol you may not be able to say it to them but you can vent here )

I know you mean well, but I really wish you would stop
asking those ridiculous questions and making idiotic suggestions. Which is what I'd like to say to one of our committee members who attends EVERY meeting so that he can raise questions just to get a mention in the minutes. His questions are generally both disingenuous and offensive - but if anyone calls him on it, he acts totally surprised that he could be so woefully misinterpreted. Wish he'd just put a sock in it.

Just for Fun:

What was the last thing that had you "Hollerin'"
Err, ahem, can't really discuss that in a PG forum, sorry.

Do you have one dominate color of clothes in your wardrobe ? There are lots of blues and purples, some greys and blacks, and a few dark reds.

Did you ever got to "summer Camp" when you were younger ? Oh yes, many times, starting from when I was about 7 years old. My mom was one of the earliest to enter the workforce, and summer camp was a great way to keep me busy and supervised while she worked.

Was it day camp or sleep over camp? Both - I went to Roeper Day Camp for quite a few summers, and to Camp Narrin (a Girl Scout camp) for two-week resident camping sessions from the time I was 10 to about 13 or 14.

What is the silliest thing you have every taken to the beach ? Hmm, can't really think of anything. I'm not terribly fond of the beach so I don't go often.
