Considering I had only ever left Texas twice before I was 18, and that to bordering states (Louisiana and Coahuila). But I made up for lost time:

visited 45 states (90%)
Create your own visited map of The United States

And north of the border, to my adopted Canadia. Working on it:

visited 3 states (23.0%)
Create your own visited map of Canada

I'm aiming to visit every county in North America. Here's my progress:

I really need to get out of North America more:

visited 3 states (1.33%)
Create your own visited map of The World

I took some of the National Geographic "Places of a Lifetime" quizzes, and I'm a little embarrassed: On the Toronto quiz, I got just 50%. I fared better in Montréal with 60%, and in Vancouver I scored 70% (even though I've never been there).

I felt better after scoring 100% on the Dallas quiz.

Rules: Post 3 things you've done that you believe nobody else on your F-list has done. Indulge in remorse if someone calls you out on a listed item.

1. Gotten airsick while turning tight circles over Southfork Ranch. (My one and only time to get airsick.)

2. Been to the amphitheater made out of "yield" signs in La Baie, Québec.

3. Observed New York from the observation deck at the World Trade Center.

Outside my window: Crickets. It's a surprisingly quiet complex for being in the middle of town.

I am thinking: that it's almost bedtime.

I am happy about: both drivers being unhurt in my car wreck.

From the kitchen: is about to come another nice cool glass of iced tea.

I am wearing: shorts. That's it.

I am creating: bumper stickers of flags found in science-fiction TV.

I am going: to Apollocon this weekend!

I am reading: Unwelcome Bodies by [ profile] jenwrites.

I am hoping: for love to return to my life

I am hearing: Fibber McGee and Molly

Around the house: I need to vacuum!

One of my favorite things: the postcard Hilary sent me from Wales (so many years ago)

A few plans for the rest of the week: paying bills (done); ordering from Deep Discount's 20% off sale; grocery shopping; beginning to clean for [ profile] adc14's visit.

LogoThere are
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

Apparently I died in Amarillo, TX, in September 2005, aged 87.

And I'm a supervisor at Weyerhauser.

And I was involved in a "unusual" purchase of cattle in Wisconsin in 1998.

And I teach math at Little Wolf High School in Manawa, Wisconsin.

And I'm a sales manager at Matrix Telecommunications.

So that's five, plus me... where are the other three hiding?

Your Result: Science/Math Nerd

(Absolute Insane Laughter as you pour toxic chemicals into a foaming tub of death!)

Well, maybe you aren't this extreme, but you're in league with the crazy scientists/mathmeticians of today. Very few people have the talent of math and science is something takes a lot of brains as well. Thank whosever God you worship, or don't worship, so thank no deity whatsoever in your case, for you people! Most of us would have died off without your help.
