If you could do something right now, spur of the moment, what would it be?

Right now I'm at work so that's kind of impossible...I'd just like to get out of here. I'd particularly like to go up to New York and see a friend.

Right this minute? I'd love to breath the air from a clean-burning furnace.

My immediate reaction was "Take off on a trip to somewhere far away," because I've done less traveling than usual in the last few years. Then I thought about September 11 and decided that didn't seem like a good idea.

Take a quilt to the middle of a park and take a nap in the sunshine.

I would go to South Carolina to be with some of my friends.

I would move to Kaua'i w/ my fiance and live there. We would need money of course.

Just leave and go somewhere else, anywhere else. Do I get unlimited cash too?

I would let Calgon take me away.....then stay there for like a month, just to give my mind a break.

Go off to Hong Kong!!!

I have a fan website set up for 2 VJs at Channel [V] (kinda like MTV only more alt-like and more request-based) and they know about it. They're frequest visitors actually. They've got this request show called By Demand which airs LIVE to everyone in Asia from their base in Hong Kong. They play requests, talk to callers, give prizes...all that sort of stuff.

Anyway, today (26th September) was my birthday, and for a long time I thought they'd forgotten! They usually write to me often, but today I received not a word from them. I was a bit heartbroken coz I thought they didn't remember, when suddenly, halfway through the show, our phone rang.

When I received it, it was THEM, the VJS, singing Happy Birthday to ME!!!! They even put up "HAPPY 16TH BIRTHDAY TIARA!!!!!!!!!!!" on the screen in large letters. Then they talked to me a little. That totally surprised me.

So now all I wanna do is get on a plane and fly there to Hong Kong!!

But I ain't got the money, the tickets or the visa...sigh...

If I were to do something spur of the moment, right now, I would give away just about everything I own, and go visit all of my ex-boyfriends and make sure we were still friends. Damn, I just might do that.

Get away from it all. I want to get in my car and just drive away from it all...but then again I've learned that you can't run away, you'll just run into more problems.

Assuming that you mean I would have the resources -money, car, time - to do the thing I want to do....I would pack my family in the car and drive to the Grand Canyon. On the way I would stop to see my father-in-law and several friends who are scattered between here and there.

I would catch the next plane to England.
