Thanksgiving was held at my aunt's place this year, so we left mid-morning to go there. We got there before anyone else showed up, so we went to the main room and watched some television. The Macy's Parade was on, then the dog show was on. Yeah, not really too interesting. We had some more family members from my aunt's husband's side. There were some kids there, but they had their own play room.
Dinner was really nice. The food was delicious, but the conversation really wasn't too much fun. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that it was more than a little depressing. We mostly talked about jobs, cutbacks, bad economy, horrible 401K's and whatnot. Like I said, very depressing. That pretty much killed any chance of it being a spectacular event that day.
We went back to the main room and watched some of the old classic "Miracle on 42nd Street", with more talks of woe inbetween. I mean sure, we don't get to talk to each other ALL the time, but there has to be something OTHER than the economy to talk about. I have the least to say about that sort of things, so I was quiet most of the time there. We went homehalfway through the movie.
Then I stayed up to snag some deals on Amazon, then went to sleep.
I then woke up, and got my Azumanga Daioh DV set in the mail, so to wash out that bad taste in my head from yesterday's ramblings, I watched that and enjoyed myself. Then I had to go to work, and all the temporary happy stuff just left, because, you know, it was Friday. We were supposed to have sandwiches, but thanks to people not letting me have my break until late in the night, I got nothing. I was a little upset about that. Yeah, work sucked. What else is new?
That just about finishes up my non-exciting holiday. Now I can go back to studying for my classes and whatnot. Yay. How was your Thanksgiving, and do you have any fun stories to tell?
See you tomorrow.
