Suitably Stuffed

Sorry about the long blog-drought, but between all the artery-clogging meals, family gab-fests, and movie-watching of the past week (not to mention, sparse access to computers), I just haven't had time.

Thanksgiving was fabulous - all good stuff. Went off without a hitch, even cooking in a strange kitchen with an electric stove and oven as opposed the gas I'm used to using. Saw family and friends, talked a blue-streak, played a few rounds of Clue (and lost miserably to a 10-year-old - and NOT on purpose!), and still had time to enjoy the left-overs while watching Grey's Anatomy and ER Thanksgiving night.

Watched a lot of movies on DVD and television and even roused my trypto-phanny (get it?) out to see Happy Feet with Joanna. Here's the TV/DVD round-up: Prairie Home Companion, Thank You for Smoking, Love Actually, The Break-Up, The Omen (the original, of course - who'd bother with a remake?), Titanic, Elf, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Bad Santa, Ghostbusters, So I Married an Axe Murderer, and the whole first and second seasons of West Wing (damn good show - is anything more powerful than the "Two Cathedrals" episode?). I know it sounds like all I did was veg-out, but, yeah, that'd be about right. You gotta remember that there was a lot of conversation happening during all the movie/West Wing watching.

I'll catch up later (and check on the memes that tagged me), but things are stacked to the ceiling at work, so I gotta go. Mo' later!

I'm glad you're back, too! I watched 'Love Actually' this weekend too. And I ordered a copy of 'The Women' which I picked up the other day, but haven't had a chance to watch yet. Maybe tonight. I could use a good laugh.

Sounds like a wonderful time to me Mary. All those movies AND West Wing too...terrific. West Wing is one of my....if not my ALL TIME FAVORITE SHOW. Good luck getting caught up at work...

Welcome back indeed, Mary. We were wondering where you had gone!
