I'd like to thank Dr. Monkey for this meme, which I thankfully lifted from his blog. It is called the "Meaningless Meme." And, as he said, here are my meaningless answers to it:
1. Five names you go by:
b) Uhuru (when I'm on NJ.com)
c) Mimsie (by my mother)
d) Mrs. DH
e) Idiot - by DH - because he pointed out that I had only listed FOUR names when it said "five names you go by." (Naturally he said that with affection.)
Three things you are wearing right now:
a) An old black shirt
c) Skechers hiking shoes
3. Two things you want very badly at the moment:
a) To retire!
b) My dinner
Not necessarily in that order.
4. Three people who will probably fill this out:
(Consider yourself tagged, y'all!)
5. Two things you did last night:
a) Ate at an Italian restaurant in Whitehall, NY, called Roma Restaurant. It's been there since 1946! We eat there every time we come up. The staff is very friendly and the food is very good (and coming from a resident of Northern New Jersey, which is the Italian food capital of the east, that's a high compliment).
b) Blogged (what else?)
6. Two things you ate today:
a) Raisin Bran
b) McDonald's Quarter Pounder
7. Two people you last talked to on the phone:
a) My mother
b) DH (he calls me from his cellphone when I'm in the house)
8. Two things you are going to do tomorrow:
a) Drive back to New Jersey
b) Blog (of course - it's the last day of NaBloPoMo!)
9. Two longest car rides:
a) Bloomfield, New Jersey to Lancaster, Ohio to one of DH's cousins' wedding
b) Bloomfield, New Jersey to Nova Scotia (not counting the ferry from Maine to Nova Scotia - we had our car on the ferry, so it counts as part of the drive as far as I'm concerned!)
10. Two of your favorite beverages:
a) Red wine (although I no longer drink alcohol now)
b) Skim milk (yes, I really do like it).
Tomorrow we'll be back home and I'll start paying attention to current events again and go back to work on Monday. But in the meantime it's nice to take it easy. I hope you're all enjoying a relaxing long weekend!
