Ah, Thanksgiving. More on that blessed food/family guilt festival later, but this week is obviously a hectic one. I envision many people complaining about airports, their family, their vegan cousin who points out that they have nothing to eat and they’re FINE with that since Thanksgiving is essentially a killing rampage of epic proportion. But until then, the world is still turning, and there’s still news! I know! Even after the election, we still have things happening!
Finally functioning on full power after Sandy, which is more than I can say for my parents and relatives in Connecticut and New York. Let’s let the polls speak for us tomorrow when we get to…gauge responsiveness, shall we say. Speaking of which: tomorrow’s officially Election Day! I’ll be down at Democracy Plaza at 30 Rock, and I hope NYers come by and check it out. Even if you don’t DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!!! Let’s move downward, shall we?
This week has been nuts for nuts, since it’s almost Halloween and so everything is now revolving around costumes. Let’s just say there have been duct tape dresses, beanies, cat and pig ears and wigs…and we’re still a week and a half out from Halloween. But other things are apparently happening too! Moving on!
Weekends be crazy, am I right? Blah blah sports, blah blah it’s Pumpkin Spice Latte season, blah blah I’m suddenly in the market for a Glitzy the Pig costume. Moving on!
Fall has begun! The leaves are turning! We’re starting to break out our boots and retire our flip flops! Football! Sweaters! Pumpkin lattes/doughnuts/etc. We’re about a month away from the election, so let’s hit some newsballs. (That makes no sense. MOVING ON!)
Hi everyone! Great weekends, right? Despite a head cold from hell, it was still homecoming here and everyone was festooned in maroon. Go Rams. ALSO! It’s a Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah, so L’shana Tova to my Jewish brethren. AND ON TOP OF THAT, it’s my Dad’s birthday. He is very cool beans, literally the best man I know, so no pressure every other one on the planet.
This weekend I was turned into an honorary Gator by several UF grads, and indulged in Ferrogosto. I have never been happier in my entire life that I work out. If I didn’t, I would have felt like Jabba the Hut. Forward! Headlines!
My first American weekend back consisted of sitting around my the pool doing nothing, spinning, and featured a cameo by Chipotle. U-S-A! U-S-A! HEADLINES!
Despite the fact that the 4th of July is descending on us in a blaze of fireworks, hot dogs and people wearing American flag jorts, I will be leaving this glorious nation this evening. Hopefully I’ll find some other ex-pats who want to celebrate our independence (from the country I’ll be living in…awkward)! Anyway, weekend news! What up?
