I spent Thanksgiving Day here in L.A., with friends (including ladybrick yay!)--eating and drinking and ignoring (for my part) the football-watching going on at the other end of the room, and acting like the geek I am (well, pretty much everyone there was a geek of some variety, so I was in good company).
I'm not sorry I got to see my family. But I doubt you'll catch me ever doing something like this over the Thanksgiving long weekend again. Bah. I could have done so much, and instead I was stuck in car for two days. Oh well.
