Thanks for posting, Laura, even though you probably don't feel much like it. I can relate.

1) Name 5 real people or 5 characters that are known for wearing hats or some type of head covering.

a. Roy Rogers
b. Santa Claus
c. Hedda Hopper
d. Carmen Miranda
e. The Pope


2) Do you have a face mask that is attractive or unusual? Describe it.
I'm not sure if it's "attractive" or "unusual," but I made some face masks from Mr. Bay's old flannel pajamas. They're brown and blue plaid on a gray background.

3) When planning a car trip to a set destination, approximately how many hours would the trip (home to final destination) have to be for you to decide the trip should be done in two or more days instead of one?
Mr. Bay has a low tolerance for long car drives, so we usually won't go more than two or three of hours before stopping.

4) In addition to the food not tasting that great, for what reason(s) would you not return to a restaurant?
Bad service, too crowded, overpriced, hard to find parking.


5) Is graffiti art? Explain your opinion.
I guess you could say it's a form of graphic art when it's done with style and flair and makes a statement, but I don't think most graffiti meets those standards. Most of it just looks like scribble to me and has no other message beyond "Look at me! I exist!"


6) When you go on vacation, do you tend to pack more than you need or are you the type that has to shop for something you forgot while you are away? What type of item are you most likely to have too much or too little of when on vacation?[/quote]
I almost always pack too many clothes and too many cosmetic items like makeup, lotion, etc.


Thanks, LauraC! I hope you get a good night's rest.

a. Diane Keaton
b. Stevie Ray Vaughan
c. Marlene Dietrich
d. Al Capone
e. Queen Elizabeth

2) Do you have a face mask that is attractive or unusual? No

3) When planning a car trip to a set destination, approximately how many hours would the trip (home to final destination) have to be for you to decide the trip should be done in two or more days instead of one?
About eight hours, give or take.

4) In addition to the food not tasting that great, for what reason(s) would you not return to a restaurant?
Bad service. If it's dirty I wouldn't have eaten there in the first place. I have been known to walk out once I got a good look at my surroundings. We hardly ever eat out anyway and when we do it's because we're on the road.

5) Is graffiti art? Explain your opinion.
No, to me most of it is ugly and lacks imagination. It all looks the same.

6) When you go on vacation, do you tend to pack more than you need or are you the type that has to shop for something you forgot while you are away? What type of item are you most likely to have too much or too little of when on vacation?
I tend to overpack, but since all my traveling is on the road it's okay, there's room in my car.

Thanks LauraC! Enjoy the weekend everyone!

Having a hard time keeping my eyes open so this will be shorter than usual. - Thanks for your time. I hope your trip went well!

1) Name 5 real people or 5 characters that are known for wearing hats or some type of head covering.

I just woke up but excluding many I could name who play sports the only one I am coming up with at this time is Ilhan Omar.

I don't follow Hollywood so I would not know famous characters who always wear them.

Just thought of another - the comedian Gallagher.

2) Do you have a face mask that is attractive or unusual? Describe it. - Nothing special but this is something I am interested in...


3) When planning a car trip to a set destination, approximately how many hours would the trip (home to final destination) have to be for you to decide the trip should be done in two or more days instead of one? - 12 hours.


4) In addition to the food not tasting that great, for what reason(s) would you not return to a restaurant? - Lousy service, rude wait staff.


5) Is graffiti art? Explain your opinion. - Not a fan, especially when it comes to body graffiti. To each his / her own as far as that goes.

I'm not in favor of defacing buildings or other objects like subway cars or randomness on the street. But if a city wants to donate space for that...
I view almost all of it as an act of vandalism and not "art."

6) When you go on vacation, do you tend to pack more than you need or are you the type that has to shop for something you forgot while you are away? What type of item are you most likely to have too much or too little of when on vacation? - When I use to travel a little it was usually more.
