I hope all of my American friends and followers had a nice Thanksgiving. I myself have a lot for which I'm thankful: my family, my home, my job, my friends. I'm thankful my health situation isn't worse. I'm very thankful that I have Winston.
Friday was my Mom's birthday. We all met at the movie theater in the morning and saw "Life of Pi." We saw it in 2D since 3D prices are outrageous and my Mom prefers 2D. Spectacular movie. Gorgeous cinematography. A thought-provoking, soul-touching story. Amazing acting, especially by newcomer Suraj Sharma. I highly recommend this movie. I want to see it again so I can hopefully pick up on things I missed.
On Saturday I went to lunch and the cheap movies with a friend to see the Disney-Pixar movie "Brave." Who can resist Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Julie Walters, and Kelly McDonald voicing Scottish characters? It was cute and funny, on par with their other movies. Like the other movie, I'd like to see it again to catch the things I missed. For example, I totally missed the Pixar Pizza Planet truck and a hidden Mickey!
I have three full weeks of work before taking the last two weeks of December off. I'm hoping they go quickly and - most of all - painlessly.

I've been somewhat absent due to dealing with some health issues and work being busy. The time change last weekend has thrown me for a loop as well. I've been falling asleep at the drop of a hat. It's dark when I leave for work and nearly dark when I get back home. Soon it will be dark.
For those of you who have your own blogs, you know what it's like to get a threatening or rude comment. These comments usually are left by "Anonymous." In other words, a coward who cannot use either a moniker or a real name. I recently had one of these "hecklers" on my Behr Hunt post. I've heard from him again and I could not help but reply. I'm quite amused by this one. I invite you to click on the link and read the amusing comments.
Monday is a Veteran's Day and therefore holiday for me. For some reason it snuck up on me. I have no plans but am hoping to do something, perhaps Disneyland or a movie.
Or maybe I'll go take pictures of fully clothed men's backsides and post them on my blog.

America got it right!
At least in my humble opinion. To be honest, I was nervous about this election because of the impact that a change in administration would have on our country, especially regarding social issues. Another bullet dodged, I believe.
Hopefully with the reelection of President Obama our government will have little interruption. Oh sure, there are new congressmen and senators to orientate but there's no reason for a slow down in productivity.
And here's an odd thought: I really hope that President Obama foregoes an inaugural ball. The money spent on such "gala" events really are unnecessary expenses. A simple swearing in and parade should suffice, imho.
For now though, I'm proud of America.
