FridayQ: Escape

| | Comments (0)

The other month, Dave2 resurrected his FridayQ posts.  I did many of these ten years ago (holy crap has it been that long ???) but I also missed a lot because I actually often found them too hard!  Often it required thought and brainpower that I just didn't have.  Anyway, I thought it might be fun to work through them for the next year (until I forget) and compare answers with ten years ago.  And I even still have a "category" in my blog, which is pretty disturbing in itself!

Friday, June 4th 2004...

FQ Topic: Escape

FQ1: What is your favorite way to escape from everyday life?
Movies, tv (to some extent), internet.  Jigsaws, although that gives me plenty of time to let my brain wander, which sometimes goes into fantasyland, sometimes about life in general.  Alcohol to some extent.  Travel, but not nearly enough of that :)

FQ2: When was the last time you made an escape? Where did you go?
Well our last proper holiday was to Hong Kong and Taipei.  Given that I did almost no planning for it, I guess you could say it was an escape.

FQ3: If you could escape to anywhere on earth right now, where would that be?
Gosh.  Probably Europe somewhere.  I love Europe.

FQ DARE: Post your passport photo (or your driver's license photo if you don't have a passport).
I *hate* my passport photo.  These days you're not allowed to smile for your passport photos which makes me look completely retarded.

    Well since it's the first of the year and all, thought I'd do this "First" meme I saw on Dawn's blog just today (even though it was posted a month ago) ...


    1. Who was your FIRST prom date?
    My first "prom" I didn't take a date too - that was our Year 10 formal.  For our year 12 formal I took my boyfriend of the time (Mark)

    3. What was your FIRST job?
    Shop assistant at a newsagent

    I saw this at The Pen the other day and collected the bits for it.  Then of course Dave beats me to it and of course him being a graphic designer and all somewhat out-does my effort.  Oh well.

    To play:

    1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
    The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

    2. www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
    The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

    3. www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
    The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.  Mine was from definetheline - "Light in the Darkness"
