Going home

So today we're headed back to NC. It didn't seem like we were home for 4 days. I didn't see any of my friends (other than Blake) and didn't do some of the stuff I was planning to do - such as get a pedicure. I did find $20 in a parking lot, we did play a lot of games, and I did eat turkey, so at least some of my plans came about. Here's some pics of this weekend.

Even though I'm home, and have access to a computer, I haven't been updating - duh. That's because when I am home I often don't have time to update because I am doing important things such as sleeping.

This Thanksgiving weekend has been pretty good. My siblings and I drove down together and went to Outback where Jeff has 3 bowls of clam chowder as his 2 sides with his Outback special. We listed to a CD of learning Spanish while driving or something like that and have been singing some of the songs all weekend. Thanksgiving was nice - just the 4 of us. We've played games all week, including but not limited to: Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego (board game version), In a Pickle (stupidest game ever), spades, Racko, Scrabble, Facts in Five (old school Scattergories), and the newest edition to our board game collection, Apples to Apples. It's a pretty good game and was recommended by our neighbor, who I just learned has GPS on her son's truck.

What else have we done? We watched "Dan in Real Life" which was really good and reminded us of our family in alot of ways, except that we have much more alcohol involved in our games etc. We put up our lights and candles and 2 trees. And ate. And ate. And ate.

That's pretty much it. I really hope Tennessee loses and of course that Georgia wins, so that's what I am doing today. Plus we had to take family pictures which took like 2 hours. And Blake, a family friend from when we moved here 15 years ago, has been staying over since last night. So that's fun too. Ok, that's about all that's new here for now. I'll try to update again before I leave, but who knows. I am being called to play some Scrabble right now so peace out.

Look - 2 posts in 2 days! See what happens when I have access to working computers! I am at UNC all week for a conference (see last post about why I am staying at my brother's). UNC is about 20 minutes from my sister's house in Durham. So we had dinner tonight (got right to the point on that one). We went to this place called Nosh. It was really good - a little pricey, but not that bad. I had the steak wrap, and it was really good and a little spicy. My side was the couscous which was awesome. I normally hate raisins, but the cute them up real small and it added a little sweetness to the couscous which was nice. The best part about the place was the fact that it had a bunch of board game scattered around on tables. The Roll and I decided to stick around and play a round of Scrabble (the bitch beat me by 2 points). I think it's a great marketing idea for smaller restaurants to have stuff like that. The don't need the massive turnover on Wednesday nights like some other chain places, and it actually made us stick around and get dessert (we split a brownie and a carrot cake cupcake which was delicious).

On a side note, while I was about to leave the bathroom I decided to adjust my boobs because they were not properly in my bra. I was debating on if I should go back into the stall or if I could just do it in front of the door. The reason there was a debate at all was because the door pretty much opens into the restaurant and people sitting at tables can see right in. So I went for it, playing the odds that nobody would come in during the 20 seconds it would take me to fix myself. Nope. Hand in shirt, the door opens right into me and it's the cashier. Oops. Oh well, I think I pulled it off ok. If not, it's not like I'll be going there all that often.

Yea, I've been busy. First, I moved. Then I started a new job where I am not allowed to view blogs nor write my own. Then both of my home computers crashed - well the desktop needs a new fan and the laptop crashed - probably a virus - the entire thing just went blank and it can't find the operating system. So, until I can get those fixed, I won't be updating very often. Which is also the reason why this is the first update in over a month - or at least the main reason. Another reason is that I was thinking about not updating this again because of my new job. It's important that nothing "bad" about me get out on the Internet. Then I thought about it and there really is nothing "bad" that I have ever posted. I've tried to be careful about what I talk about and who or what I criticize. If, at some later point in time, I decide that I don't want anyone to see the things that I have posted, I'll take down the site or delete the posts, but right now, I like my memories posted. I might try to update some more this week while I am at my brother's in lieu of staying at a hotel for a conference I am going to the rest of the week. But we'll see.
