This looked like a fun meme I found while reading Blog 365. Annie wrote hers and I found it interesting. It seems like it requires SOME thought, but not the deep soul-searching on which many memes focus. It’s a gloomy, chilly fall day, and NASCAR doesn’t start for a few hours. I’ve added some qualifiers in parentheses for some of the questions. Here goes:
Four places that I go to over and over:
Bed, Target, Kroger, Bathroom
Four people who e-mail me (regularly):
Nancy, Amy, Going Like Sixty Comments, Google Alerts
Four of my favorite places to eat:
Rudy’s Worst Barbeque in Texas; (I surprised myself in choosing a chain BBQ, but they are big enough to keep good workers, be open longer than family owned places, yet small enough to keep their quality high.) Maruba Spa and Resort; (and no, it’s not just because it’s in Belize. It was the most consistently high quality food and presentation I have ever experienced – breakfast, lunch and dinner.) El Mazatlan, fast, friendly, frugal; Dairy Queen; chocolate milk shake. Except our local DQ has gone to really, really flimsy straws that collapse! Freaks. I’ve complained but they don’t care. I still return. DQ is owned by Warren Buffet, so I may just drop him a note.
Four places I would rather be right now:
Negril, Belize, Ft. Myers, Paris
Four TV shows I watch over and over:
Andy of Mayberry, Dick Van Dyke, M*A*S*H, Morning Express with Robin Meade.
Four (unusual) things in the room I’m in:
Spinning wheel, dog crate, 8 boxes of Kleenex, fireplace screen (we don’t have a fireplace.)
Four concerts (as opposed to stage peformances) I’ve been to:
Beach Boys, Dionne Warrick, The Carpenters (yes, only three in sixty years!)
Four things on my calendar:
I don’t use a calendar, I have a wife. (O-boy, that will get me in trouble.)
Tower of Terror, Roller Coasters, gross anatomy stuff, (like Nancy was watching some emergency room reality show and a person came in with worms growing in her head. I don’t want worms growing in my head. I guess that would be cranialwormophobia), airplane turbulence.
Four (unusual) things in your purse or wallet:
Blog cards, security codes (for realz), that’s it, other is usual junk.

Trash, mowing, repairs, updating Windows.

Four things you know how to cook (not bake or grill):
Toasted cheese and baloney sammich, drippy eggs, french toast, hmmmm.
And my addition… four ways I know how to say four:
quatre, cuatro, vier, five minus one.
