Wortendyke Park

Got two geocaches today. The first, which I did in the afternoon, was Wortendyke at Wortendyke Park, a small park in the borough of Midland Park. It was a remarkably fast park and grab, so I had time to pick up a Subway Club in Ramsey. You know... all my Subway subs look the same because you can't see the meat under all the fixings. :)

The second geocache, which I visited in the evening, was The Harrison Kids at Ramapo College in Mahwah. (not far from the other cache I visited just last week at the junk tree) Harrison Kids is next to the Ramapo River and also near the Hopper Slave Cemetery, where the Harrisons were buried. After that, I got some tacos at Badlands Tacos. (to use a coupon that expires tomorrow)

Earlier this year, I submitted a Form 1040X to pay the tax due on last year's IRA excess contribution withdrawal. Since it was past the Tax Year 2005 deadline, there's interest due on that too, of course. However, today, I received a letter from the IRS saying that they reduced my account balance to zero because "the amount owed was so small". (Only $2.74) Nice of them.

From thefridayfive:

1. If you had to choose being blind or deaf, what would you choose and why?
Deaf. Because being able to see makes it a lot easier to find geocaches and to use the web.

2. What is the best smell?
The very next smell after I pass the cogeneration plant in Linden.

3. Would you rather be hot or cold?
Cold. I can't do much about heat but I can wear more clothes when I'm cold.

4. What's the worst feeling in the world?
The feeling of letting someone else down.

5. Would you rather have something hurt or something be itchy?
Itchy because I would at least have the option of turning it to hurt if I scratch too much.

From fridayfiver:

1. What web browser do you use?

2. What email client do you use?
At work, Thunderbird. At home, I just use the Gmail web interface.

3. What type of Internet connection do you have at home?
Cable modem.

4. What kinda of computer do you have?
The desktop PC is a Dell Dimension 4550. The notebook is a Dell Inspiron 1150. Both are long overdue for upgrades but otherwise, they still just work.

5. When did you first get 'online'?
1991, when I started college. After 16 years, you'd think I'd have had enough of the Internet. :)
