Thanksgiving Weekend | 11/30/08
I took this picture on Black Friday only because I thought the "for Women" was a waste of lettering. I didn't realize they had closed the Dress Barn: For Men. I got some Christmas shopping but avoided the big-ticket-item stores like Best Buy because I knew they would be infested with poor people stampeding for things that were marked down after being marked up. That's the problem with the poor--they don't even realize such things.
Thanksgiving was boring at best and here are some photos to document just exactly how boring it was. I got a lot of good score editing in so the weekend wasn't a total loss. On Friday night I met up with Rebecca's gang (plus Jack) in Ballston and we had some drinks and had an ol' fashioned throw-down for who was going to have a more insane bachelor/bachelorette party. I'm pretty confident Jack and I will take care of business but apparently Rebecca's cousin, and maid of honor, is a wildcard. Also, since 2/3 of my "team" has access to secret governmental information I would have to think that will put a lot of things off-limits.
On Saturday I watched FSU get destroyed by Florida (as expected). I think the vaunted FSU defense is now outdated in that it just can't stop the spread offense. And FSU's offense...wow. Chompy could catch more passes than any of the FSU receivers. Not so sure I would have called for a fake field goal if I had been calling the shots but why would you want points when you could have none AND potentially get the only person on the team who can score points hurt?
Saturday night I went out with We're-Not-Driving-To-Sterling group of Baylis, Marc, Annie, and...someone else to the Brickskeller for fancy beers. Things started to fall apart around 1am but Baylis and I held strong while everyone turned into pumpkins and went home.
Yeah buddy (that's for Ricky).
