Thanksgiving Bonus!

Thanksgiving in list form:

1. Watched some Thanksgiving football. Booooooooooo Cowboys!
2. Greeted arriving family by staying planted in front of TV set (this was due to a cat the size of Nebraska taking sleeping on my femurs... and laziness).
2-1/2. Change of plans in terms of those in attendence: Cousin Becky sick, scratched; Bobo, apparently was slated to come, but no one told me. She arrives with giant metal walking stick, which I don't recall seeing before. She looks good, but frail. She says I look very different with a beard and is delighted to see Nebraska sized cat.
3. Discussed issue of dying trees in my Uncle's neighborhood. Apparently some idiots planted trees on top of wire and burlap. The tree roots can't grow through it and they will die. Community is to vote on what to do about it (replant trees? let them die? somethings else?)
4. Ate turkey and things. Tonight's spread was less impressive than previous Thanksgivings, but no less delicious. I also managed to not eat so much as to make myself nauseated as at previous two Thanksgivings. Only fruit salad and barfday cake (in honor of my sister) for dessert. This was disappointing. No pie. What? No pie? No. No pie. Surely you jest! No. I don't. No chocolate either. Only fruit salad and barfday cake, and if you wanted, leftover asparagus from the dinner.
5. Laughing at my sister's bizarre decision making--for example, purchasing of sound system, including subwoofers 5,000,000,000,000,000 times bigger than an elephant, for her car before finishing the payments on her car. Her car now generates earthquakes and reverses time.
6. Gift giving and receiving. My sister received a bottle of beer and money, I think.
7. Blogging. Everyone is gone now. So I blog. For you, my adoring, invisible, imaginary audience.

by popular demand...

...and by "popular demand" I mean no one's request, here's some crap I've designed over the past long while...

LaVar, you know the way to a man's heart...

The Washington Post reports:

"[LaVar Arrington] addressed the [Redskin's] defense Saturday during a team meeting, thanking teammates for their support and urging them to remember their original passion for the game, when they played without compensation [in college]. He told them to forget individual gain, and disregard whether he would be starting. 'It's not about me,' Arrington said he told the players. 'It's about this team.'"

It's a girl!

I have a new sister and her name is Suzanne. I guess it's kind of a miraculous conception in that my Mom was never pregnant with her. Someone was though, and my brother married that woman's offspring. I gave a toast that seemed relatively well received, and those of you who remember prom (junior and or senior) have an idea of what I may or may not have done on the dance floor during the Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now). Pre-wedding pictures are TK.

Utah was rad. Read Ducore's blog for the lowdown. Here are some pictures for your pansy asses:
