Friday Five - Destinations

Haven't done enough to warrant a Roundup, so I'm playing along today...

Name five places that fall into the following categories:

1) Favorite Destination -- someplace you've visited once or often and would gladly go again I had an awesome time in New Orleans last year, between the work I did and The Best Cup of Coffee Ever at the Cafe du Monde. I keep waiting to hear if another trip is being organized, but nothing yet. Honorable mention goes to The Big House in Ann Arbor...anyone got some extra tickets?

2) Unfavorite Destination -- someplace you wish you had never been (and why) My junior high school. I pretty much hated every minute that I spent in that place. My hometown has been tearing down a couple of the old elementary schools, and I hope that place is next. I'll set up a lawn chair, pop a beer, and gleefully watch every second of it.

3) Fantasy Destination -- someplace to visit if cost and/or time did not matter I've never been to Cooperstown to see the Baseball Hall of Fame. My more exotic choice would be Sweden or Greece.

4) Fictional Destination -- someplace from a book or movie or other art or media form you would love to visit, although it exists only in imagination Well, I gotta go with Eternia on this one. Gotta go meet He-Man and Teela and Man-At-Arms and visit Castle Grayskull. Grayskull would be the centerpiece of my trip, really. I hope they'd let me have a tour, what with it being enchanted and mysterious and not well-lit and all.

5) Funny Destination -- the funniest place name you've ever visited or want to visit I've been to Hell, Michigan. There's nothing there but a novelty souvenir shop with things like baseball bats (bat out of Hell) and t-shirts that say, "I've been to Hell and back." It was quite silly.

Well, of course I did.:)

Ahh, yes... While at The Berg I made a trip up to Hell in the winter to see it freeze over.
It didn't.

I have a brilliant idea...you and me at an Ohio State/UofM game....what do you think? Personally, I think that would be the best fun I could imagine. Ha.

And oh yes, I did date him...what a rollercoaster that semester was...seriously. And I blame Josh Harris too...but only somewhat..his next book wasn't bad. :)

Darn, I forgot about Jr. High. Good point.

Oh, I am back in NOLA for just a sweet moment, thanks! Great play. I have been to Hell, too, but the one in the Caymans.

Junior High. I had blocked that from my memory. You are so right. I wouldn't want to be a pastor in Hell- bet they get comments. Great play!

Mmmmmmm....Cafe du Monde. Totally worth it.

I've thought, how fun would it be to be an ELCA church planter in Hell! (We're already represented in Paradise, I believe.;-))

Diane said...

Well, it appears that a lot of people have been to Hell.

RevAnne said...

Oh boy. Junior High. I blocked it out.
What does it say about me that I'd kind of like to go to Hell?
