What I Did Over Thanksgiving Vacation, by Duf
Played no-limit Texas Hold ‘em with my Mom, my mother-in-law and my father-in-law*.
Grew a beard.
Painted our 5 x 8 bathroom**.
Played Dance Dance Revolution with my nieces and nephews.
Saw “For Your Consideration”***.
Reorganized our file cabinet.
Saw “Stranger than Fiction” ****.
Reorganized the upstairs closet.
Listened to “Wolf Like Me” by TV on the Radio about 6 gazillion times.
Bought tickets to The Black Keys – performing live at First Avenue on Wednesday night.
Ate Tofurky and Tofurky sandwiches.
Paused and gave thanks for all my blessings – they are both many and significant.
I hope your holiday was wonderful too.
*On my best chance to win, I lost to Mrs. Duf who bet soft when she was hold trip fours which beat my two pair. Then, for all the money, she beat me with ace high (I tried to bluff her out).
**Never paint your bathroom.
***2.5 stars out of five.
****I’ve seen three movies at a theater in the past two years that blew me away: “Crash,” “The Departed,” and “Stranger than Fiction” – who knew existentialism could be so entertaining? Will Ferrell is phenomenal. And, has Emma Thompson ever made a bad movie? I even liked “Love, Actually” and I don’t even like romantic comedies.
