I would have picked "playing an instrument" but you lumped it in with singing and I can already sing. so I chose foreign language, only because my French is very poor and I wish I could speak it fluently.

Actually I wish I could have picked more of those because I also wish I were more athletic, and could sew. Possibly simultaneously.

You have to only pick ONE. That's the challenge. Also, you could pick 'play an instrument' and specify that you mean playing an instrument and not singing; that's what I did, since I too can sing but I can't play any instrument worth shit.

When you say "more than 100" miles, you mean at a time, right? So, the eighty six skrillion miles I've logged on trains over the course of my life doesn't count if I've never traveled more than say, sixty miles from home?
ludickid
Jun. 9th, 2008 04:41 pm (UTC)
Yeah, 100 miles at a time, not in aggregate.

I have traveled more miles on the Greyhound bus than I care to admit.

I have also traveled more than 100 miles by bus. In fact, I once spent about 15 hours on a bud, travelling the entire length of Nova Scotia. Uuuuugh.

I think the boat from North Sydney, Nova Scotia to Argentia, Newfoundland is more than 100 miles, so I included it, but I can't be bothered to confirm at the moment.

Leonard know aaaalll about spending 15 hours on a bud. I hear that's the only way to see Nova Scotia.

I've done a lot of miles on motorcycles. I'm not certain I've hit 1000 miles in one day on a motorcycle, but I've gotten close.

I'm not sure I've ever managed more than 100 miles at a shot on a bicycle. I'm pretty sure I've never managed more than about a mile at a shot on a unicycle.

I'm sure I have more than 100 miles aggregate on horseback but probably not at one shot either. Hrm.

Now, I took a ship down the nile for more than 100 miles, but we got off everyday for sightseeing. Does that count?

A motorcycle if it counts.

A bicycle, and there's no way that's an automobile.

A motorcycle is an automobile.

A bicycle, okay, that I will grant you as an "other (see Comments)"-worthy conveyance.

When it comes to defining what is and isn't sex, I find "If you've ejaculated and someone else played a pivotal role in that process, it's sex" to be a helpful rule of thumb.

Well, in that case I've had sex with Jenna Jameson more times than I can count! I win!

Picking one skill was so hard! And it's depressing to see that all the things I CAN do are things basically no one picked. I should have stayed with piano lessons as a kid.

I'm also disturbed by how many ppl like fall, which I think is the worst season. I mean, not here in SA, b/c it means it's actually temperate outside, but we don't have a REAL fall with annoyingly crisp afternoons and the smell of dead leaves. THANKFULLY.

Horse: Trail ride from Brenham to Houston as a kid (for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo) . . . but that might have been just under 100 miles. I was not allowed to wear my white cowgirl suit with all the fringe because I had to "save it" for when we got to Houston so I would have something appropriately flashy to wear to the Elvis Presley concert. As a result I believe I sulked for quite a few miles.
