Thanksgiving '09Had Thanksgiving at Shannon's brother's house in Carroll. Link had fun chilling with his cousin Diana. We had some delicious turkey served from a slow cooker on the floor. Vahida made this great dessert that may or may not have been Bosnian.
Watched parts of two terrible movies, Without a Paddle, which I'd been morbidly curious about, and Santa Buddies, which I snarkily tweeted about.
We beat the holiday shoppers by looking around downtown on Thanksgiving. Sure, we couldn't buy anything, but who needs the pressure?
I mean to call my parents and siblings and catch up. We'll see them for Christmas - can't wait!

A shooting star is not a starWe saw a beautiful green meteorite walking home tonight. It flashed down across the sky over the course of several seconds. I remember seeing one similar shooting star driving once, but this was way cooler and lasted much longer.
We had fun at Beth and Steve's new year's party. Good company, good food. New Year's Day for us was pretty lazy - we moved the last of our boxes into the house, and that's about it.
