Anyway... I used to love Thanksgiving. I have spent every Thanksgiving in my hometown of Charleston, SC except for my first year of marriage. Now, for the second time in three years I will be unable to go to Charleston.
Thanksgiving day is just not what it used to be anymore. I used to have the same tradition growing up. I would wake up and my mom would make cinnamon rolls and then I would watch the Macy's Day parade. That parade used to be awesome. Who didn't love seeing Sonic the Hedgehog, Tom the Turkey, and all the other balloons? Then Santa would show up, probably drunk, but he kept waving to the crowd. Then somewhere through the years they focused less on the balloons and more on the "Broadway" acts. Who cares about those people jumping around in their little costumes?
By the way I think the worst image that has been engraved in my memory was when the TV station interviewed Richard Simmons. You know that little outfit that he wears? Well it was like 20 degrees that day, and all he was wearing was his little costume. Gross, I think I just threw up...
Anyway, It seems like the bulk of the parade is now just people singing and of course you have the marching bands. I know that these students have to raise a lot of money to get there, but I don't care about watching the Macon, Georgia High School Fighting Bacon Marching Band. I want to see Big Bird and Garfield floating down the street. Instead I see Miley Cyrus and the Jonas brothers lip sync.
By the way, another awkward moment, I had a friend growing up tell me that he thought the middle Hanson sister was hot. I had to inform him that she was in fact he, and that we were no longer friends.
So this year for Thanksgiving I will be staying in town and going to a couple of Leslie's relatives houses. Eating, drinking... hopefully mostly drinking my way to a happy Thanksgiving.

These are pictures that I took while Leslie and I were in Hawaii. One thing that does impress me is that these pictures were taken before we bought our nice new camera. Not bad for a little handheld camera.
Hopefully I will have something interesting tomorrow.

You See!! Right at the end of the commercial it's as if the IPOD's get so scared they just pee, and it's gross.
Something else happened to me today that I don't like. People talk to me in elevators. I don't mind talking to you if I know you, but I'm not a fan of when strangers start to talk, unless you look like Carrie Underwood and I will talk to you, alot...
I was getting on an elevator and another gentleman was in there too. After the doors close and we start to move he looks at me and says "how's it going?" I responded with "fine thanks." Apparently that didn't satisfy Mr Small Talk as he then said "It's cold outside, huh?" Of course it's cold outside it's why I'm wearing my OJ Simpson gloves, I don't wear them because I was a fan of his.
Don't get me wrong, I am a friendly person, but I just don't like awkward situations. They say that a crowded elevator is the quietist place on Earth. Apparently this is not the case.

I also have two dogs. I have a Jack Russell Terrier named Bailey. We got Bailey about a month before we got married so she has been with us for a little over two years. About 6 months ago, Leslie and I decided to go adopt another dog to keep Bailey company. So we went to a local shelter and adopted a doggy. We ended up adopting a Beagle that we named Mattie.
Yeah, they are cute. I guess the most important person that makes me happy is my wife Leslie. We have known each other for 6 years and she is great. Here is a picture of us.
So that's what I got so far. Don't worry, I see things that usually grind my gears on a daily basis so I will be sure to share them. I will also post pictures of my car as it goes through it's transitions. Bye
