I’m headed off on a road trip this weekend for a very special wedding. (Not mine!) Lots of driving, from which I need to take breaks now and then. On this trip, YOU can help entertain me on my breaks!
I enjoyed our last round of “Visitor Info” so much (and I think some of you did too!) that I thought we’d play again. You are very interesting people, and I like getting to know you a bit better, especially the quirky stuff!
What do you loathe the sound of?
I have a category of sounds I despise: eating noises. This includes ice chomping, chip crunching, gum cracking/popping, slurping, etc. And for some reason, my ears can pick up these sounds across a crowded room. It irritates me more about myself than the offenders.
What was the first concert you went to see?
Three Dog Night at Memorial Stadium in Memphis when I was around 12 or 13. It was the first concert I was allowed to go to with just my friends–no parents allowed!–and I was feeling quite grown up. (I’m now going to have Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog running through my head all morning. Not so bad given some of the alternatives…)
What is the worst song to get stuck in your head?
A music-loving friend was horrified to learn I’d gone on a road trip and hadn’t brought any music with me, so she made me a mix CD for the drive home. I didn’t put it in the player until about the 4-hour mark and subsequently found that the last song on the otherwise awesome CD was Welcome, Christmas from How the Grinch Stole Christmas. (You know the one: “Fah who for-aze! Dah who dor-aze! Welcome Christmas, Come this way!” Over and over and over again.) It’s one of those songs that will NOT get out of my head once I hear it. Still, it makes me smile for a minute when I hear it, because I remember how hard she laughed when I called her from the middle of Texas to protest.
How many e-mails are sitting in your inbox right now?
I was afraid to look, and it turns out there was a good reason for that. I have 391 emails in my inbox right now. I know what I’ll be doing when I’m stuck in my hotel room on my solo nights on this trip!
What is your favorite thing about summer?
Fruits and veggies: tomatoes, bell peppers, watermelon, cantaloupe, and so on and so on. I can’t wait! (Second place goes to more daylight hours!)
Your turn! Please give me something to read on my road trip breaks!

Thanks for playing! I’ll chime in as time allows!
Meanwhile, I hope you all have a most wonderful weekend!
