The Friday Five & Questions 11 & 12 - from Amanda

Well, Amanda picked up my slack, thankfully, and posted the Friday Five. Here they are from her, with my answers:

1 – Who taught you how to drive, or did you teach yourself?
Some random guy from driver's ed - My parents didn't have the patience to drive me. Arguments and anger ensued so they quit.

2 – What was your driver’s test experience like? Did you pass on the first go around?
I passed on the first go around - even though I had to take the test in a vehicle with no power steering! WOWZERS!

3 – Any speeding tickets, car accident on your record?
Oh lord, yes. At least five speeding tickets since I've started driving, one cited accident, and a few more the cops don't know about. It's a messy situation - do you really want to know?

4 – If you could drive any car what would you want?
1969 Dodge Charger R/T. Yummy

5 – If you turned on your car now, and the radio came on, what would be playing?
I was banging around to some Eric Clapton this morning.

Question 11 – out to you Charley:

Would you rather live knowing you were going to die at a said date and time, or would you rather just die tomorrow with no knowledge?

AMANDA: I'd want to know. Want to know if there were things I outta hurry up on. Maybe if I knew that there was a limit to my life, I would just do some of the things I have wanted to do. Rather than questioning it. I understand that everyone dies, but to know it would help the reality of the fact. Maybe then I would just say, you know what you only live once, so just do it. Live it to the fullest, I better do it while I have the time and I had better enjoy it while I am at it.

ME: I don't think I'd want to know, only because I should live my life like I was supposed to, you know? I don't want to have to make up or change because of things I did in my life. Trying to do my best the first time around is probably all I can ask of myself.

Question 12 - back at Amanda
Where is the one place you wish you could travel to, but have not yet and never know if you'll be able to get to?

ME: Jerusalem. I would love to make a pilgrimage there, but there is no way I'm going when little kids blow themselves up and everyone's a target!
