The Memingless Mean

Taggged by Luminiferous Ether with the Meminingless, err, Mannigles, ummm, Meaningless Meme. Hah! I managed to get it right on only the third try! Here we go... The Meaningless Meme!

1. Five names you go by:
a) Ed
b) Daddy
c) Papi (or maybe it's spelled poppi, I'll have to ask Cinderbelle.)
d) Dog Park Guy (most often spoken in dog).
e) Sir (a sure sign you're getting old.)

2. Three things you are wearing right now:
a) My moose hat (okay, I admit I put it on just now so I could say I'm wearing it.)
b) Flannel lined jeans (hey, it's Wisconsin!)
c) Sea horse print boxers.

3. Two things you want very badly at the moment:
a) Somebody else's bank account.
b) To think of one other thing.

4. Three people who will probably fill this out:
a) Jess Wundrun
b) Gomonkeygo
c) Pagan Sphinx

5. Two things you did last night:
a) Played a gig with The Reptile Palace Orchestra at the Mabel Tainter Center For the Arts in Menomonie, Wisconsin.
b) Had a post-gig soak in the hot tub in the Menomonie Country Inn & Suites.

6. Two things you ate today:
a) An omelet at the Norske Nook in Osseo, WI.
b) Roasted, salted cashews from the Menomonie Food Co-op.

7. Two people you last talked to on the phone:
a) Sparkly Seacow's friend Violet's mom Felina.
b) Some guy named Todd who called to talk to my lovely and talented wife.

8. Two things you are going to do tomorrow:
a) Work on the damned bathroom, unless something else comes up.
b) Take the dog to the bark park.

9. Two longest car rides:
a) Madison, WI to Key West, FL with a 12-year old and a five-year old.
b) The five-minute drive to the bark park with an excited dog moaning and barking in my ear.

10. Two of your favorite beverages:
a) Beer. Particularly a nice, bitter IPA.
b) Fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice.

And finally, a clip from a favorite movie.
Since vampire films seem to be all the rage right now, here's a clip from my all-time favorite in the genre: Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre.

Nice to get an insight into your life, Ed. I like the moose hat and it appears we may have a similar bathroom problem! Once gain, I think I'll get to it tomorrow!

This meme is catching! That movie gives me the willies. In a good way.

Heck - sitting here in GA today, lined jeans sound nice! It's cold for wimps like me.

Thanks, Singing Bear. I thought of tagging you for this, but I didn't know if you like to do memes or not. So, if you wish, consider yourself tagged!

Hi, DCup. I'm a big fan of Herzog's films.
The nice thing about lined jeans is they're warm without that bunchy feeling you get from long underwear. I heartily recommend them!

Copycat. You couldn't possibly have gone all those places I went. I didn't see you in the hot tub. What was the pie special of the day at the Norske Nook?

Ed said...

I saw you in the hot tub, but then, you're a much more memorable sight in a bathing suit than I am.

Since you ask, I believe the pie special of the day at the Norske Nook was blackberry crumble.

Oh, no! It's the dreaded Werner Herzog! :D WP really likes his movies and I...urrr...don't. But. But. I realize he's a legendary film maker and all.

With that out of the way, I'll say that what you did last night does not sound too shabby!

And yes, I'd love to do this meme. I really like the movie clip part. Fun!

I will probably work on it tonight.

Love the Herzog, Ed! I gotta watch his movies in the basement alone. Only fan in the house.

I saw the book in progress - according to local, supposedly verified legend, the Marx Bros. got their stage/nicknames in Galesburg, where we live now, in a card game at a long gone hotel that was across from our "Opera House."

I had a hard time sticking to just 5 names.

Oh, and Ed. Stop by for my run of The Meaningless Meme. :-)
