Obsessive Compulsive

Thanksgiving was nice. I woke up sick but managed to make it through the day. We had dinner at Chiamom/pop's house with Mom/Dad/H2/H2GF and us. You know it's gonna be a good time when you sit down to Thanksgiving dinner, Grace is said, and H2 launches into a story about drunkeness, dancing with gays, and peeing outside. It's all about the Herrick family dinner story!

Friday J and I were both off and the plan was to go shopping for "Black Friday", but I am still sick, so we stayed home and watched all 7 episodes of HBO's Generation Kill. If I understand correctly, it's the story of one company's first 40 days in Iraq. I don't normally like war-type stuff, but I enjoyed this. There was a lot of cursing. A. Lot. Of. Cursing. But, still I enjoyed the story. Is that right? Can I say that? I mean, it wasn't fun-fun happy time, it was (is) war, but I liked the characters and the way they were portrayed. I don't think I'll read the book but I wonder if J (or guys in general) would like that?

It's interesting the way Generation Kill came onto my radar (get it, military reference, radar, haha) is that one of the actors from Twilight was in it. Then, I found out my new boyfriend, who plays my beloved Eric in TrueBlood, was also in it. I didn't realize he played one of the main characters, so that was a nice bonus! Plus, I think it's funny that two of the actors from this series went on to play vampires so soon after this project.

So today J is back to work and I am still sick, and we all get back to our regular routine Monday (with no True Blood Sunday night - wahhh!). BUT, Friday is the craft fair (The Aunt Sara version this year which should be extra fun!) and Saturday H1 and SiL(H) come in - FUN!!! Then, it's time to shift into high gear for the holidays. Whew!

I am so excited that I will get to see H1 and SIL(H) while there.
I was sick after Thanksgiving too and had to miss Niece Harley's baby shower Saturday in NY.
See you all soon!
