Friday Five

1. How are you planning to spend the summer?
I don't get summers off, ya miserable kid, ya, I work for a living. I do plan on heading up to Acadia National Park in Maine with my v-ball friends at the end of July-beginning of August to camp and bike and hike.

2. What was your first summer job?
I was a caddy at my grandfather's country club when I was 15. I was a lousy caddy. I did learn how to play golf, and got to play on a nice course for free. And in case you're wondering, no, it wasn't anything like Caddyshack.

3. If you could go anywhere this summer, where would you go?
Someplace cooler. Hey! Maine! There's an idea!

4. What was your worst vacation ever?
I was in New Orleans for PittCon two years ago, and decided to stay an extra few days for a vacation. I came down with the flu on the last day of the show, and spent most of my vacation weekend in my expensive hotel room with a fever.

5. What was your best vacation ever?
Both trips I took to Spring Training in Florida were wonderful, but the first was probably a touch better for what I got to see (shuttle launch, for one thing).
