I have not done Manic Monday questions before, but I wanted to give the answers to the first and last ones.
What is the most expensive meal you've ever eaten? After I passed the CPA exam my husband took me to celebrate at the Wine Cellar, an expensive little nook of a restaurant attached to the Rosewood Room, a larger, also posh, restaurant that was part of the Northstar Inn in downtown Minneapolis. I remember we had giant stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer, but I don't remember details of the rest of the meal. Total was ~$75 for 2. In 1982. We splurged!
What is the fastest speed you've ever traveled in a car? I hesitate to admit this, but I let my kids talk me in going 90 once. They loved to say, "Go 90, Mom! Go 90!" So one day I did.
What is the highest building you've ever been to the top floor of? A former boss and I had drinks with a colleague in the Windows on the World bar at the top of the World Trade Center in about 1982. Unfortunately the weather was cloudy, but the clouds parted briefly at one point to allow us to see the lights of New Jersey. It was like being in an airplane.

Wake them at your peril. That's all I'm sayin'...

Last week it was pretty cold here, but one stoopid kitty-kat aka Hannibal decided that he really, really, really needed to go outside. Duh. Not too much later, this was the scene outside my office window.
Meanwhile, everyone inside was warm and toasty.

Note that the electronic weather station shows sunrise and sunset times for Green Bay. There is a list of cities in the instruction booklet from which to choose the one closest to your location. The choices in Wisconsin were the aforementioned Green Bay (229 miles east of us) and La Crosse (134 miles south). No Milwaukee, no Madison, let alone anything in northwest Wisconsin. So I checked Minnesota; the selections there were Duluth and... International Falls? So what are the Twin Cities, chopped liver? /rant
