It’s time for another whining blog to the producers of The Amazing Race.
I’ve been working out and have lost nearly ten pounds in two weeks. (Of course this has NOTHING to do with catching the penguin flu and still having to work 13 hour days in holiday retail hell.) But I did walk eight miles today, so that should count for something, right?
My physical condition (or Jeni’s) will never get us selected even if we walked to hell and back – what I like to refer to as work. What we’re counting on is our answers to the application questions. After reading some of them, feel free to comment below. (As long as your comment indicates you will quite possibly never watch another CBS program unless Jeni and I are selected as contestants on The Amazing Race.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why?
Beggars can’t be choosers, but I’ve always wanted to see Yemen because I like the way Yemen sounds when you say it.
Italy and Michelangelo’s David are on my bucket list. I consider it an amazing sculpture and unlike most Texans, don’t feel the need to put a pair of pants on it. I speak just enough Italian to feel comfortable exploring a country with such a rich history. And by “just enough Italian” I mean I can ask for the directions to the bathroom.
What part of the world is the least interesting to you and why?
Washington DC. I’m pretty sure that’s self-explanatory.
South America. I’ve been to Mexico many times and the culture is similar in South American countries. I’d like to experience unique scenery and cultures. Besides, I don’t want to end up like Jon Voigt – getting swallowed by an anaconda would suck. But I’ll do it for ratings if you promise to have on hand an industrial-size vacuum cleaner to get me out of the snake’s belly.
Do you get sea, air or car sick? If yes, please state which.
I got sea sick on a deep sea boat excursion once, but I’m generally a fairly hearty person in that regard. I wouldn’t have to eat bugs, right?
I only get sick listening to my boyfriend’s political point of view. Another reason to go on The Amazing Race.
