much whinage that should probably be ignored

an exception of course to this full frontal whine would have to be that having coffee with my 'boyfriend' and 'evil_overlord' on Friday mornings is so happy-making it's becoming an addiction.
The whinage is about being jealous (jealous I tell ya, jealous) of all you luckies who got to go to the CFTC and those other luckies with plans to go to NYC to see Joey. - To see Joey. On broadway. In "Rent"!!
I have absolutely no reason to whine cause it's so awesome that so many of you share your pics and stories. God bless everyone of you!! I'd evaporate and blow away if I couldn't live vicariously through your experiences.
Your generous sharing feeds my need.
The whinage is for the suckage that is my life that I can't see SDB in person too. ::pouts like the 2 year olds I is:: .jealous.jealous.jealous.
Thank you for listening. This rant was brought to you by the colour green and the letters p, o, u and t.

Friday 5

I always read peoples' 5's and thought I'd give this a try.

What is your lineage? Where are your ancestors from?
Scottish, French (Canadian).
The Outer Hebrides - islands off the Highland coast of Scotland and Normandy, France.

Of those countries, which would you most like to visit?
Scotland. I'd love to walk the moors of the Highlands before I die.

Which would you least like to visit? Why?
France I guess. Cause it was the only other choice?

Do you do anything during the year to celebrate or recognize your heritage?
When it's convenient to - I wear a sash of my family tartan on Robbie Burns Day. I toast the New Year (Hogmany) in Gaelic. :o)
I speak Gaelic and French when I get the chance. (or make fun of the French Canadian accent when I can. Which I can do cause my relatives, you know dey all talk like dat.)

Who were the first ancestors to move to your present country (parents, grandparents, etc)?
I can go back 4 generations on mom's side 3 on dad's.
