No Canadians allowed on The Amazing Race, so I think Tam (and myself) are out of luck. Though, we would make a hell of a team...

Gelli - you would have loved to have gone pro in what?

What's the amazing race?? Geussing it's something on Canadian/American tv.

I would love to be a Blue Peter presenter(that's a kids tv show for anyone who doesn't know). They always seem to have so much fun and get to do cool things such as sky diving and inspiring kids to make and do things. Plus every summer when it's not on TV they always go on a Blue Peter expedition to places such as South America and then they show what they got up to after the summer. So you get to travel as part of the job!!

No idea how you would get to be a Blue Peter presenter but that would be my dream job. When I was at school that's what the careers teacher told me I'd be good at too!!! Geuss it's cos people think I'm a happy bubbly person and I get on great with kids

Greg, I actually wrote to CBS requesting that they allow Canadians onto the show! I had to! As we can all see, I'm so obssessed with the Amazing Race! We'll see if a Canadian Amazing Race ever comes out!

And tigerlilly, here's the website for the Amazing Race Basically, 11 teams of 2 race around the world, performing various stunts and challenges while on the road. It's the coolest thing ever!

I wrote to Coca Cola asking if they would release Diet Cherry Coke in Canada. They said no.

Why does the world hate Canada so?!?

Nevermind the world hating Canada....Canada hates Quebec. Whenever I see a worthwhile contest to enter it's always excluding Quebec. It has something to do with complications with the provincial gaming commission...but still...I want to enter contests I see on TV!

Hey everyone,
I'd love to be a travel writer, but I'm obviously not the only one. I love to research & work with international women's organization (anyone have any suggestions), or hotel/hostel critic or tour guide in an exotic destination. Anything having to do with traveling really. But I definatley have a new few ideas to think about.

my dream job would be ancient archaeology because i would get to travel alot around the world to the digs and see interesting historical things. I would also be learning languages both ancient and modern over time as i was doing it. i know not the best most exciting dream job but its what i like.
