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?
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!
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.
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?
This weekend was Father’s Day, and I hope your fathers all received their ties and golf equipment with glee while you thanked them for being your biggest fan. But what else is happening in the world? Who knows! Let’s find out together, shall we?
(Also: Do you want you link featured in ‘Monday Morning MonBRO’? Then let me know, plz. Email me or tell me on the Tweet machine, where I am @MarilynMonbro.)
Did we all have good weekends? Good, great grand, excellent. Moving on.
Sup birches? If you’re reading this, I assume you survived Memorial Day weekend. Congratulations, the summer has begun. And what a weekend it was, am I right? Upsets and happiness, barbecues and running into people from high school. Let’s get after it, shall we?
