    There's about 1 1/2 - 2 mos left of school. Time for a fun Q&A thread! Answer these questions: :)

    3) What thing(s) will you make sure to do THIS summer? Work out at my gym more, go on a few fun day trips, shop, eat, go to the movies, take my dog out more even if for a quick drive & go to an amusement park or two. I may fly somewhere...hopefully.

    4) What's your favorite thing(s) to do indoors? Outdoors? Indoors - Wacth TV, be online, read magazines. Outdoors - Shop, browse bookstores, walk my dog, dine out.

    5) How's the weather been lately?

    1) What are you going to do on Memorial Day, the LAST holiday before school's out? No idea... At that point I feel like I am grading a lot so I am not really far behind when I have to get final grades in. Other than that, probably just hanging out and bbqing somewhere.

    2) What's the 1st thing you'll do when you're officially free for the summer? Stay up late and sleep in! Sometimes we go out after work. I would like to do something with my co-workers since I am (hopefully) leaving.

    3) What thing(s) will you make sure to do THIS summer? Just get out of the house more, go to the pool or the gym.

    And I am hopefully moving this summer too, so hopefully I will be able to pack and move in an organized manner. Would love to have a yard sale, too.

    4) What's your favorite thing(s) to do indoors? Outdoors? Indoors - nap!
    Outdoors - lay by the pool or on the beach, and I love eating outdoors too, either a picnic or on Main Street there are a lot of places with patios here and I love eating and watching the people go by.

    5) How's the weather been lately? up to the 80's and then down to the 50's in one week. I don't like it to be too hot but I would like something a little more consistent.

    We haven't figured out exactly what we're going to do. Probably drive up North to visit my DW's family.

    Go out to eat.

    Spend a lot of quality time with my DW and DS. I haven't spent as much time with them doing fun things this past year as I would have liked. I plan on giving our old clothes to our church and getting our DS some clothes that fit him well. Boy he grows fast!

    Indoors -- composing music. I would like to work on some scores. Outdoors -- I love going for hikes and nice swims in fresh water.

    It's already starting to get too warm for me. I prefer cooler weather, as does my DW, which is why we often drive up north whenever we have a chance.

    1) What are you going to do on Memorial Day, the LAST holiday before school's out?

    In honor of the Swine Flu pandemonium, I think I'll go to the annual Pig-Out 2009
    Area: Northeast Georgia
    Date: Sat 5/23
    Sautee Nacoochee volunteer firefighters celebrate the 20th anniversary of the festival with pork, chicken, Brunswick stew, firehouse beans and slaw. Activities include live bluegrass music.

    2) What's the 1st thing you'll do when you're officially free for the summer?

    Unplug the phone and blacken the windows. Park the car in the garage. Keep the lawn unmowed.

    3) What thing(s) will you make sure to do THIS summer?

    I will try very hard to do nothing. It will be a challenge, since I usually end up doing something, but this summer is the one in which I hope I reach my goal.

    4) What's your favorite thing(s) to do indoors? Outdoors?

    Indoors - Keep the heat and the cats out.
    Outdoors - If I'm staying in Georgia, I like to try and find ways to get back inside.


    5) How's the weather been lately?

    Confusing. If you're living around Atlanta, you'll know what I mean. Is it hot? Is that a cold snap? Why is it raining again? Will Glenn Burns ever stop panicking?

    Glenn Burns is the meglomaniac who does the weather on channel 2. You all have one--you know--the one who causes the bread aisles to become empty because of a self-induced panic disorder that must be broadcast (literally) any time the weather drops to near freezing.
