Happy Thanksgiving I
Little brother's off to Europe next week and both parents have to work next weekend, so I'm up in the far-north suburbs today and tomorrow for Thanksgiving I. Next weekend I take the Illini downstate (AGAIN) for Thanksgiving II with the other half of the family. And then all I'll want for X-mas is some peace and quiet. I got New Year's Eve day off, so if anyone wanted to watch the fireworks from my living room, let me know now. Otherwise I might go somewhere (but probably not Europe) because it's nothing I haven't seen already.
It's rather too loud in this house to think, so I'll let you do that for me and leave you with a few items from my RSS feed reader that looked interesting. Evetually I'll read them.
