had a good thanksgiving. got to see my sister and brother in law my 2 year old nephew and his new brother.

holding my breath for the next few days, not sure how much i'm going to miss this place. i know i'm going to come back with a different look on life and stuff. maybe. haha. at least one of my goals will be somewhat done...

which was figure out a way to enjoy doing some form of work for a while, have enough saved to last me a couple years where i won't have to do any 40+ hours 1/3 my life day to day job. the national guard has been the best for me in attaining that goal. despite paperwork issues! lol also im happy all my debts are being paid off!

Full.

Ugh.

Spent the day with my family in Carver. Cool.

Came home and watched Tron Legacy Blu-Ray. Also cool.

Moving is difficult right now. Not so cool.

Thankful that Thanksgiving is only once a year. I'd be dead in a month if it happened more often.

Thanksgiving was eventful. This is the first year that I had to manage time between two families, mine and my girlfriend.

Yesterday was Round 1 with my parents. I was a bit nervous because of what happened in our relationship earlier this year, but my parents and sister got along with my gf wonderfully. Many embarassing stories about my youth were told. This, I've noticed with my sisters boyfriends, is only something they do when they like the signifigant other of their kids. So, yeah, it went smashingly well. Except for the whole Gluton-Free diet my GF has because of Celiacs Disease. She was able to eat the potatoes, devil'd eggs and cranberry sauce....

Today was her family, which is much larger and closer to Rochester. It was her father, step-mom, 2 step-sisters, uncle, aunt, 2 cousins, her grandma and grandpa. They made a Gluton-Free turkey (Which means using gluton-free stuffing and other stuff), and 90% of the food she was able to actually chow on, and it was SO GOOD. Her family loves me, so we all got along great. Her dad and step-mom gave us a CRAP ton of left overs so we're set for a week, at least.

And my GF made gluton free pumpkin cheesecakes. HOLY GOD. So... tastey....

QUiet Thanksgiving. Just My wife, her dad, and I. Started out the day by making egg cheese biscut sandwiches. Then my Father-in-law and I did a 2 mile charity walk. Watched the Macy's parade

Then Watched the awesome Texans-Lions game that went into overtime and delayed Thanksgiving dinner

After our tryptophan coma, we played someSmall World. I just barely won mainly because they didn't going in decline on turn 9.

Didn't go shopping today... I refuse to go shopping on Black Friday

Swapped out my ancient cable modem (at least 6 years old...) this morning with the one my girlfriend left behind (that she got last year.)

We'll see if that cures some of the annoying slowdowns and data drops that have been plaguing my network connection for the last couple of weeks.

It's cold and damp out there today... but I'm going for a long walk to attempt to work off some of yesterday's excesses...

Man, I did something to my back. I felt it when I woke up yesterday, but it's really bad today. Curse this frail human body! If I were an android this would never have happened.

Quiet Thanksgiving here, as well. My little sister had to work, but I did have dinner w/ my brother and Dad before bowling the other night. And something happened the other night that's rare for my league: a 300 game; fortunately, it wasn't thrown against my team.

well i for one enjoyed my 4 day weekend.

Started playing Dance Central 3 on my XBOX Kinect last night. This game is going to so kick my arse, I was even doing the "Warm-up" songs and breaking a sweat. Then for giggles I started working on the LMFAO song "Sext and I know it" It has a high number of PTpm (Pevlic thrusts per minute)

wiggle wiggle wiggle, yea

I've had my upper back (shoulders; neck...) go into spasm a couple of times. Agony.

At the moment I'm dealing with an infection on my cheek. Ugly and painful and embarrassing. But maybe this was the cause of the recurring ache under my eye and the sinus and ear weirdness... Whatever it was, it ran deep. I hit it with hydrogen peroxide the other night, and it sizzled and bubbled like mad, and felt like it was drilling it's way into my skull.

It's snowing here now. Gross.

My face doesn't hurt as much, though it's still a bit puffy and red.

The peroxide doesn't react like splashing acid on my face anymore though... so that tells me the infection is probably dead... I hope.

I've gone through half a tube of Neosporin in the last couple of days though.

Reminds me of the movie I saw when I was five. I think it was called Poltergeist, my parents took me to the movie while we were vacationing in door county (the "handle" of wisconsin) and thought I would like it since there was a little girl in the movie.

The one scene where the guy is shaving and cuts himself, then proceeds to tear his entire face off.

Yea... that is why i don't like horror movies and couldn't sleep for four days

I've been working long busy shifts the last couple of days...

My first and only day off all week today... And I'm exhausted. Nothing productive is bound to get done today. Back to the grind tomorrow. Long days and late nights all week again.

But this is cool: I'm posting this from my XBox, using my iPhone as a mouse/ keyboard.

Still a bit clunky... But a cool idea. Once they get it dialed in, it might be kind of addictive to surf the web this way.

My mom had surgery a couple of days ago to try to get rid of her lung cancer. So I've mostly been with her or watching my nephew.

Last saturday night my wife and I attended the annual "Yuletide" Christmas show hosted by the UW-La Crosse. It is a fund raiser for the Jazz Ensemble Groups and Jazz vocals. Then finishes with the La Crosse Jazz Orchestra. Some great "Big Band" jazz music. if you are not in the mood for Christmas after seeing this, you are officially the Grinch.

Supposedly I get 3 weeks of Paid time off at work. But with over 80 employees, some with 4 weeks PTO (5+ years) and 5 weeks PTO (15+ years) I never can get a day off since it is based on seniority.

Not to mention I am stuck on 2nd shift, and have to work sundays.

Also there is an incentive program at work that gives you a few extra hours of paid work, based on productivity. Some people abuse this and do low quality work that others have to clean up

Hate my job.

I lost my first League game of curling last week. my team came back today from 0-2 in two ends, to score 12 unanswered points. We scored 6 in the third end, and 4 in the forth ends. Had some really tight take outs to make sure we stayed on the offensive.

(FYI if you score two on an end, it is really good)

And the answer is...yes. Kind of. Have to roll down the master volume quite a lot, so you lose some of that sparkle that happens when the power tubes really get screaming, but it's still an excellent tone.

Restarted minecraft. Realized the reason i stopped playing was because I got tired of doing repetitive tasks.

started up Skyrim again, did some quests and got tired of running around. The Magic sucks in the game

Think I might go into Multiplayer. Air Buccanners looks like a fun simple game of Air Pirates flying hot air ships
