Happy belated Thanksgiving!

- I hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving. I ate way too much and spent the entire day trying to stay awake as usual. An old man with a cane challenged my grandpa who also has a cane to a race. It was awesome. Thanksgiving is awesome.

- We had our second book club meeting a couple weeks ago. It was really fun. Sharda made us dinner, and then Shannon told us we weren't like a real book club. Apparently when she thought up the idea of a book club she didn't picture us talking about all the dirty parts of the book first or comparing national bestseller The Time Traveler's Wife to "Back to the Future". As I've told her, it will now be my mission to compare every book we read going forward to a Michael J. Fox movie.

- Last Tuesday we went to the Cavs game. My sister won club seats at a charity event, and we got free parking, free food, free drinks and awesome seats. I had never seen LeBron play live before so this was big for me. He is awesome. His arms are ridiculous. I want to hang them on my wall. While getting into our seats I spilled wine all over the back of this guy in front of me. I said, "I'm so so so so sorry." And he said, "Oh my God-this is my favorite shirt of all time." He was kidding of course. Then his friend said, "We're chubby-we just absorb the alcohol into our skin." When they left the guy I spilled on said, "I'll be sending you my dry cleaning bill." I love that guy.

- It's safe to say that 2 of the top 10 entries on my List of Favorite Things are Christmas and free dinner. Last night Danielle provided both by cooking us dinner while we helped decorate her Christmas tree. It was so fun and made me ridiculously happy. Then she played a show that was entirely made up of mascots, and you know what? That wasn't cool. But still-thanks, Mufflet. I had an great time.

- Grey's (don't read if you haven't seen it): Um...holy shit. Are you kidding me? It was so effing good! Alex and Addison? HOT! I like it! The whole Christina and Burke thing totally blew my mind. You could just see her losing control. I thought it was completely shitty of her to turn him in without so much as a warning especially after all her talk about needing to get their stories straight. Plus I am of the opinion that she dragged him into that whole situation to begin with. Steph does not agree, but I really feel it was her idea. He is a grown man and should've said no so he shoulders half the responsibility, but geez-talk about the ultimate betrayal. When I saw her in the chief's office, I was stunned. Derek and Meredith were adorable the whole episode. It was nice to see her smiley and laughing and man he is freaking hot. My heart is aching for George. It's too bad he had to shut Izzie up by being really mean, but I understand that he was speaking from a place of true desperation. Plus Izzie will get over it. I felt kind of bad for Callie. She was trying to talk to George about McSteamy, and he freaked out on her. I'm sure she thinks it's because of what she did since she doesn't know what's going on with George's dad and Burke, and that sucks. The scene with her trying to fight Meredith was absolutely fantastic. I loved when Izzie got in between them and was like, "I'm sorry, but she is really little and you're hurting her!" Amazing. I cannot wait to see next week's episode. Seriously you guys-there is no way Burke and Christina will ever get past this, is there? I just don't see how it's possible. So sad.

- I wish I knew what to say about this. But I don't. Except that I will marry this person.

- So my birthday is next week. John asked me what I wanted, and I told him I wanted him to grow a mustache. He decided to do one better. Today is day one of Five Days of Birthday Facial Hair Christmas. You can read about the most amazing birthday present ever given here on his blog (yes he's back).

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving! Wish I could've seen the cane race. This Thanksgiving, we learned that the people that bought my grandpa's land in the middle of the desert are building a Buddhist temple on it. How odd is that? Still, I'd trade it for seeing my grandpa race someone with a cane. : )

Hey Birthday Twin! We'll get through it somehow ;)

As for Grey's: holey moley that was the best ever. I am so scared fro this week & George's dad. But his mom rocked! And how about Burke closing the door on Cristina--EEK!

This is killing me: "An old man with a cane challenged my grandpa who also has a cane to a race." I love your grandpa.

Erica hahn drove me nuts until I realized that she's the one who was down in the pit, saying "C'mere, precious, you little shit..." in the silence of the lambs...

I'm not sure I want Alex to bump uglies with Addison. Nuh uh. Is any teacher/student relationship going to be hands free on this show, or what??? Nasty.

Have a great birthday!!!
