When I was at home for Thanksgiving…

  • A news anchor on the Pittsburgh CBS affiliate signed off with “It’s going to rain tomorrow, get out your babushkas”.
  • As I started what ended up being an all-Saturday project to dig a drainage ditch, my dad started playing the O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack in the garage, which starts off with chain gang music. He thinks this is cute.
  • Thanksgiving Risk board, final stateI got totally ganged up on when playing Risk with Terri, Lisa, Abby, and Dan, just because I showed no mercy to my little sister and came off as a bully. My real problem is that said little sister was a PR major and overplayed her helplessness, and I ended up owning just little Madagascar and South Africa by the time we decided to call it a game.
