Even with a 4 day holiday weekend I still feel like I worked hard.
It was a great Thanksgiving with the family. I was nearly driven insane by the smell of the turkey all day. It tasted as great as it smelled.
On Friday I spent the day cleaning and putting up my sweet new white tree. It fit perfectly into the living room. I love it.
Saturday the husband and I wandered around. I went to a couple thrifts, but nothing exciting to report. We went to see The Muppets (as mentioned in my silly Film Review post). It was fun just to hang out with my coworker.
Sunday the husband and I took on the daunting task of putting up lights. The husband likes to hang them from wire from the house to a tree. We put a mess of icicle type lights along the fence along the road. I made lighted trees out of tomato cages.
Since this is the week of Thanksgiving I am federally mandated to discuss what I am thankful for.
Seriously, with the father in-law's recent heart attack, the husband's bum knee and numerous sick friends I have to think about being thankful for my health. Then I had a migraine today. Now I am worried I ODed on Goody's power because I took two tonight.
I am really thankful for my wonderful family. The husband and in-laws are my immediate family. Without them I would be a lonely crazy cat lady.
I am thankful for my pet children. They drive me crazy with their yapping just like real teenagers. It also costs too much to feed them. I think I should be able to claim them as dependents.
I am thankful I have a job in this wonderful economy. Every day is an adventure. You never know if someone will be eating their flesh, looking like a concentration camp victim or inserting something into a urethra. I think I am the only one in the department that looks forward to the strangest clients.
I am thankful for my freedom. I try and appreciate it every day. Too many people are imprisoned by someone else or by their own choices.
I am thankful for a roof over my head. The roof doesn't leak and no one has fallen through the floor in a long time. I am thankful I have found many interesting things to help fix up the house. I just have to get off my butt and put down a floor over the entire house this winter.
18.A movie that you wish more people would’ve seen
Defending Your Life (1991)
But I tell lots of people to see it. It is a good movie about going to pergutory and having to go to court about your life in order to move on. Add the twist of Albert Brooks, Meryl Streep, plus Rip Torn and it is funny and sweet. A must see.
When the movie came out I was a clerk at a 7-11. I was trying to figure out what to do with myself. I didn't have quite the adventures of Dante, but I was at the same place in my life. I also wanted to really be Randall.
Tough one. I choose the most obscure - Crash and not the newer one but the one based on the JG Ballard book. It is an interesting tale of people who get excited about car crashes. I am a sucker for Elias Costas. Plus it's directed by David Cronenberg.
"After getting into a serious car accident, a TV director discovers an underground sub-culture of scarred, omnisexual car-crash victims who use car accidents and the raw sexual energy they produce to try to rejuvenate his sex life with his wife."
