Friday Five
That last post was pretty whiny, wasn't it? Here's something a little more cheery. I'll try to start doing these more often (thanks for the referral, Eliza). I liked last week's Friday Five too, so I'm doing both.

1. How much time do you spend online each day?
At work, more than I care to admit to. It probably adds up to 4-5 hours on a bad day, 1-2 on a good day, from a work perspective, that is.

2. What is your browser homepage set to? At work, Yahoo! At home, the MSN default.

3. Do you use any instant messaging programs? If so, which one(s)? I have both AOL IM and MSN at home, but don't use them a lot.

4. Where was your first webpage located?

5. How long have you had your current website? I'm new - just since June.

1. What's the last place you traveled to, outside your own home state/country?
I just returned from a family vacation to Myrtle Beach, SC.

2. What's the most bizarre/unusual thing that's ever happened to you while traveling?
Bizarre or unusual, instead of scary, would be the earthquake in Seattle. I was traveling for work in May of 1996 and was in my hotel room at just after 9pm when the curtains started moving back and forth, then a wave of movement swept over the room. Being from the East Coast, I had never experienced anything like this before. There was no damage, but it was a 5.3 quake, the largest Seattle had experienced in 30 years. The next day, I was brave enough to travel to the top of the Space Needle.

3. If you could take off to anywhere, money and time being no object, where would you go?
I would drive across America, taking my time, visiting all of the national parks and other sites, and visit all 50 states.

4. Do you prefer traveling by plane, train or car?
Depending on how far the trip is, and excluding this last trip to Myrtle Beach, I would say "car." You get to see so much more and you have more freedom.

5. What's the next place on your list to visit?
This list is very long. Dream list - the national parks in Utah. Realistically, we'll probably do a family vacation to Niagara Falls next year.
