***Our Thanksgiving dinner was delicious, and the company (18 of us) was pretty nice, too. Here's how Mr.4444 likes to present his turkey:

***I miss my camera so much :(
***I am really geeked-out about Google TV, which I learned about on Sunday. Although it doesn't seem ready for prime time, I will be watching its evolution closely, as having the features it promises feels like a dream come true.
***The annual "Why can't we get a fake Christmas tree?" debate has begun. I am completely outnumbered. With Maren here this year, especially, I guess I should let it go; we can't have a fake tree for our Norwegian guest!
***I'm contemplating going to see the movie, Lincoln. If you've seen it, I'd be interested in your review.
***This week, I listened to a really great audio book called Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. The author of Seabiscuit, Laura Hillenbrand, wrote the memoir after hours of interviews with the man who survived his POW experience at the hands of the Japanese. I found the book inspiring, compelling, educational, and uplifting; I learned a lot from a perspective I've never taken before. The audio book is read by Edward Hermann. I thought he did a terrific job. I highly recommend this book; even though it takes about nine chapters to get to the meat of the story, I had a hard time "putting it down." In the end, I stayed up til midnight to finish it.
***I'm trying the Disqus commenting system again. Let me know if you run into any trouble with it.
***Kendall and I trimmed Milo's nails today; you'd think we were hanging him by his toenails, for all the screaming he did. (No, I did not cut him at all.) I took him to a pet store last time; he screamed bloody murder there, too; it was a little embarrassing. Oh well...suffering builds character.
***They say that turkey meat contains tryptophan, which causes naps. I think turkey has love in it, because I am really full of that right now. I'm very thankful for you; thanks for reading my blog.
