Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Friday Five #7


1. What’s your favorite vacation spot?

Jeez, what the hell is this? I’m not the Million Dollar Man! What do you want to hear? That I summer in the Hamptons and winter in Aspen? ‘Cause if you do you can go take a hike, bucko.

And besides, who wants to go away to the same location all the time? Well, I guess if you like those package holiday type things you might, but they don’t count as holidays in my book.

To answer the question, even though it doesn’t really apply to me and it smacks of elitism, I have been to Paris twice but still didn’t see everything I wanted to see, so I would love to go back.

2. Where do you consider to be the biggest hell-hole on earth?

San Antonio, on Ibiza, seems like it to me. I’ve never been there, but I never wanna go. I feel sorry for the people who live there, having to put up with all those drunken fools.

3. What would be your dream vacation?

A few days in New York, a few more in Chicago, then all the way along the Pacific coast from LA to Vancouver. I’m hoping to do Vancouver to San Francisco within the next twelve months. I would rather not travel alone though.

4. If you could go on a road-trip with anyone, who would it be and why?

Any of my friends really, for different reasons. Each of the trips would be different, and they’d all have the potental for excellence, so I couldn’t pick just one. Now, if we could all drive, that would be even sweeter.

5. What are your plans for this weekend?

Probably going to the Icarus Line gig tomorrow night, even though I’ll feel like a tool being on my own and lost in a crowd of pretentiousness. I’ve also got some reading to do and essay planning and whatnot. I dunno, whatever happens happens I guess.
