Tigg's Questions

Tanya asked me some questions; here they are with my responses... (thanks tweets!) :)

1) What are you reading?
Leave it to you to ask this one... ;) Well, uh.. I'm sorta re-reading a somewhat dorky and rather formulaic fantasy series that Jason got me started on... it's by David Eddings and it's called The Mallorean, which is the follow-up to The Belgariad (which I also re-read). There are gaping holes in the story, it's fairly predictable, and after awhile you notice that every single character (among the good guys at least) is using the same, sardonic sense of humor as everyone else. But for some reason, I love it. Re-reading it is like visiting old friends and familiar places. :) When I'm done with this I may re-read Lord of the Rings...

2) What do you hope for?
Right now, to put on a good show tomorrow night at the block party... and eventually, to find out what love is someday.

3) Where do you want to be in ten years?
I want to have been lots of places... I'd love to have been a travel director at some point (sort of like a tour guide on cruises and tours and stuff...) I want to have a better idea of the world out there, and I want to be satisfied with myself for what I've done.

4) What is your proudest accomplishment to date?
Making a career choice... although often I ask myself "Why am I doing this????" :)

5) What do you fear?
Besides bugs and spiders? :) I guess at times I fear change... and yet at the same time I fear that I will turn 30 and everything will have stayed exactly the same as it is now... I fear for my family and friends... I want them to be happy. And I fear that I do not do enough when they are not.

6) Strongest memories?
Hmmm. You mean memories that have lasted the longest? I'd have to say growing up in that house on Kingsford for the first 16 years of my life... I still remember tiny details from that basement that my dad finished himself, I remember my room, I remember the yard... I remember it so much and so often that it is very frequently the setting for my dreams at night. Actually last night I had another one.

That was fun! Although I feel a little exposed... :)

Continuing on with the theme of suggestions for your blog, I would like to know what the top 10 places are that you would like to visit. You said you wanted to have been to lots of places in the next ten years and have a better idea of the world out there, but where specifically do you want to go? We all know you love Wales, etc. but do you have any desire to go to non-European countries? Also...what's one U.S. destination that you have always wanted to see but never have?

The U.S. destination question is easy: Boston. All of New England, actually. I want to eat crab and lobster in Maine and see the trees in fall and visit the famous places of our nation's birth. I've considered going to New England for my vacation coming up in October, probably using most of it to visit my friend Julia in NYC, if she's up for it, then maybe while I'm there I can take a little side trip somewhere...

Besides that... Well, Europe is pretty damn awesome. I need to go to Italy (Rome), Austria, Bavaria, and I should probably make my own opinion of Paris someday. But if not Europe? Hmm. I'd love to see the pyramids in Egypt (from horseback...not sure if I like camels). I want to visit the islands in the South Pacific. And of course, there's Australia and New Zealand, although I don't want to venture TOO far into the Outback. Bugs are too big. :) Then there's weird places like Greenland or Easter Island or things like that that not many people go to (we should've somehow taken that trip to Iceland, that would've been great. Me and my stupid hesitancy).

However, now that I have a puppy, these things become much more difficult...

Oh, here's another U.S. destination that would be cool: Alaska. I just want to experience the phenomenon of those super long days and nights, just to see what it's like. :)

Lisa and I just got back from Australia. We went to the Outback and there were no bugs whatsoever in winter. It was awesome! Just beware of the crocodiles...they were massive!

Uh.. I think crocs might be slightly worse than bugs...bugs don't eat you!! Glad you had a good time out there! :)
