Long Weekend!

It was a great long weekend! I cooked Thanksgiving dinner and the folks came over after my mother got off work. Seemed like a big success! It was mostly recipes from Food Network's website and everything came out great. I'm also getting better at making homemade pie crust (with the usual Libby's pumpkin pie filling). The sausage and herb stuffing was probably the best thing I made, though. Glad everyone was happy with the food!

Man, Black Friday was nuts. I didn't participate for the most part, but of course it's crazy that it's creeping up and stores are opening at midnight or even 10pm Thanksgiving night. On the one hand, it kinda sucks the shopping season is creeping up like this. On the other hand, maybe it will creep up so much that we'll have "Black Wednesday" and the Friday after Thanksgiving can be used for hibernation like it should.

Still... One thing I keep seeing is people saying, "I got an awesome deal on such-and-such I bought myself." I thought the whole point was to do shopping for other people...? I mean, I don't think there's anything wrong with picking up stuff for yourself as well, but it seemed like people's SOLE reasons for shopping were to get things for themselves.

Anyway, aside from that... I saw the Muppets movie on Friday and spent most of the rest of the weekend just playing Zelda: Skyward Sword. I didn't actually get around to beating Twilight Princess, but man, I can't get enough of Skyward Sword! I wasn't sure about the motion controls at first, but I really got into it, particularly for combat. Just loving this game!

All in all, a great weekend that actually FELT nice and long.

This week, folks are getting dental work done. I may have to help out tomorrow if they're too out of it.
