What did you want to be when you grew up? A marine biologist

If you had a time machine, what year would you go back to and why?  I would only go back to 1993. Let us just say it was a good year.

Favorite bumper sticker: Visualize whirled peas

If you could go on a road trip with anyone (dead or alive), who would you go with and where would you go?  I would go the USA Tour with my favorite surf punk band and travel from city to city listening to them. I love their music and would enjoy surfing with them.
