Vacation: Preparing for the trip back

  • Thanksgiving was wonderfully low key and stress free, esp. since I didn’t have to cook a turkey.  Prime Rib Dinner was just as good.
  • Will the Detroit Lions ever have a winning season?
  • Got a lot of work done thanks to my brother’s Mac book that he got.  Am organized a bit more now and ready to try to get some order to my clothing department.
  • I’ve had a shitload of weird dreams this week, most of them World of Warcraft related, but there are some others that I should have written down and analyzed.  I know that my dad has a dream book around here somewhere.
  • Caught up on my movies, has usual.  Juno was fun and entertaining.  Sweeney Todd wasn’t that good.  Fantastic Four/Silver Surfer really sucked.  And James Bond/Casino Royal was pretty good.  
  • Played with my brother’s Google phone aka the G1.  Not too impressed.  I think he is getting less impressed with it too.
  • Battlestar Galactica in January!  WOOHOO!!!!  Sons of Anarchy Finale was great; can’t wait for season two.  Finished getting caught up with Sunny in Philadelphia, kind of a mixed season; glad I just Tivo’d it.  Most interesting show that I didn’t watch was something on Skinemax called Alien Sex something 3.  Me and my brother were cracking up at the description of the show.  Me and my brother were cracking up at the description of the show, but for the life of me I can’t find it in the TV Guide.
  • Still didn’t talk to the parents about important issues, like can they pay their bills and how healthy are they.  Did decide to get my dad off of whatever 2nd rate cell service he is on and just put him on my plan.  He also has this MagicJack thing that I need to look into.
  • Did not do any Black Friday shopping.
  • Had a nagging cough this week.  I’m hoping it’s something that I caught on Greyhound, but suspect it’s from my Mom’s and brother’s smoking.
  • Mom got rid of all the dogs except for Elvis, the one that LOVES my dad.
  • Thinking about buying them either a flat-screen TV or a new kitchen sink for Xmas.  Need to price it out and see if my brother wants to go in on it.  They don’t really need a flat screen since they don’t watch HD stuff or would know the difference.  Would rather get the sink if it doesn’t cost too much.  Credit should still be good enough to get a C.C. if I need to.
  • Dreading the trip back to S.F. tomorrow on Greyhound.  Really dreading the 3 hour layover in Sacramento and the 20 ride to get there.  Need to make sure to get cough drops and some Icy Hot pads for my back.
  • Kind of glad I started this blog up again.  Here’s to hoping that it will help me out somehow.
