Twofers

As MsP states in her post, I do love me a meme (in fact, I have two others saved in my drafts for slow days), so I am going to kick off my day with this one she posted yesterday.

Two names you go by:
1. Sarah
2. Sweetpea (but really, only in the blogosphere — I am not a nickname person overall)

Two things you are wearing right now:
1. bathrobe
2. eyeglasses

Longest car rides: (I hate long car rides and avoid them whenever possible.)
1. DC to Albany, NY
2. DC to Hilton Head, SC

Two of your favorite things to do:
1. read
2. knit

Two things you want very badly at the moment:
1. more coffee
2. to not have to go to work

Two animals you have (or have had):
1. 14-year-old yellow cat, Dingle
2. 5-year-old gray former alley cat, Smoky

Two people who will fill this out:
Like Ms P, I can’t say will, but I know 1) sprite and 2) randomduck also go with the meme every now and then.

Two things you ate today: (it’s 8:13 am and I haven’t actually eaten yet, so I am going to post two things I ate yesterday)
1. Vietnamese ginger chicken
2. strawberry pop-tarts

Two people you last talked to:
1. Bossman
2. Rudi (if IM counts)

Two things you’re doing tomorrow:

2. buying my iPhone at last

Two favorite holidays:
1. my birthday
2. Thanksgiving (mmmm… turkey and stuffing and cranberries)

Two favorite beverages:
1. Coffee
2. Guinness

Update: Ugh. I hit “publish” instead of “save” and have now had to come in three four times to edit the spacing and finish writing the intro. This is what happens when trying to do things before the caffeine hits the bloodstream.
