~ i’m the tenth listing for tofurky on google image. had it two years ago tomorrow – it was a very tasty meal and i have really sweet memories from the dinner to boot. btw, that’s a (delicious) quiche pictured with it, not pizza.
~ it’s been raining non-stop today and looks to be the same tomorrow. i drove around in a pickup with the rear cloth cover flapping and snapping in the wind. l.a. was depressing with all its homeless animals scrounging for food, dodging cars, and hopefully following a random stranger once in a while, but i forgot how sad it can be here, seeing all the dead deer, raccoons, fox, and more on side of the streets. it’s a scary time for animals on the edge of rural/suburban maryland.
~ my nephew is so much less old-man looking just a week after being born. and his sisters are shooting up as well in just the few weeks i’ve been here – is that possible? they’re growing up so fast, sniff.
~ no matter what, moving from living alone to living with people definitely required an adjustment. i leave notes now, talk on the phone much more than i used to, and generally consult others every day at least a few times. i remember entire days in l.a. – some very happy, some very not – where i wouldn’t say a single word to anyone so much so that when i spoke, my voice would be squeaky and/or i’d surprise myself hearing a voice. now, throw in the whole family/living with the parents/etc thing, and it just adds more, um, spice.
~ i miss you l.a.! i don’t know when i’ll stop believing in my gut, in my heart, in my dreams, that my apartment is no longer mine.
~ oh, and thanksgiving itself? still not a fan. i like the food, i like the family ;), i have a lot to be thankful for, but the whole prilgrims-and-indians thing? untrue & depressing.
so much more to post ~ but for now, there’s what been going on with me. hope you have a relaxing and delicious day tomorrow, filled with good food and good company.
