Thanksgiving happened! And it was just as straight-up crazy as only Thanksgiving can be. You know - place cards and perfect weather and zip-lining with cousins and remarks about your parenting style and employment status at dinner.
AND? beer and Scrabble with some of my favorite people - which was awesome, and noticing it's awesomeness while it was happening, which was awesomer.
And we saw Santa. I get giggly and star-struck when I see Santa.
Weee! Urban Epic was - well, pretty epic.... Yes? Epic enough anyway. Old friends! New friends! Beautiful venue and a beautiful view. I'm so exhausted/inspired. That's my favorite state of being, I think.
Around here, someone does not think his mother is funny. Not even a little. I console myself with coffee and the New Yorker, thin crust pizza with beets, and looking at the moon through a big old telescope.

Around here, I bought my handsome husband a Pocket Buddha and everything went immediately to hell. It's been rough around here. Not like - walk out of Syria with a child on your back rough? But - job loss / equipment failure / operator error / bad luck rough.
My super-friend Julie is telling me that I have to throw the Pocket Buddha away. Have we not seen the Brady Bunch?
