9070 - Happy Thanksgiving!

A year away from ACIM. Who'd have thought it? Good to have moved on, though I'm very proud of the good I accomplished while I was there.

I'm so thankful that I'm here now... I have a loving family, some nice local friends, a good job... let alone the default things like a roof over my head, regular feedings and the ability to read!

To hear BHK and me gobbling, listen to last year's holiday entry.

Pictures to color! Embiggen at will!

Ze has a good talk about thanks, from a year ago.

Off to the in-laws with BHK... she prepared a quorn "turkey" roast, veggies, cake, stuffing, and all manner of goodness. I don't know how it could possibly beat the shepherds pie she made for me last night, but if anyone can do it, she can. I'm truly blessed to be married to such a warm, loving, beautiful, brilliant woman who can cook, too!

Baconsalt - Our mission in life is to make everything taste like real, delicious bacon, without the fat or calories. (Vegetarian friendly!) I like that they call themselves "Bacontrepreneurs"

I tend to agree with Mr. Fry's assessment about Americans (as opposed to folks in the UK) and debate. Just because I disagree with you, it's not an attack on you, personally. (Scroll down to "Getting Overheated).

Newtnewtie and Pyepyecam1 have been activenewtcam ... BHK sent me samples of lunchtime travels.

I'm glad Newtcam continues to get a good workout!

They're getting more and more tolerant and friendly with one another - see below.

Just because someone isn't on my "friends list" here on LJ, it doesn't mean I'm not reading other ones... I wonder why folks are so surprised when I comment on something that they wrote and I don't auto link them? There are a lot of reasons not to... maybe I don't want them reading my "friend's only" posts... or maybe they write so often that it floods out my aggregator. Or Maybe I'm just nosy, and want to peek in on random people from time to time, rather than every day.

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
"Teeth are cool... I wonder how you'd replace them with Gemstones, like in Miracleman's Adrian Cream"

2. How much cash do you have on you?
Very little. Maybe $.045? I'm overdue to hit the ol' ATM

3. What's a word that rhymes with "DOOR?"

4. Favorite planet?
Earth works best for me... excluding the obvious, I like Uranus, because it has a sideways axis, rings, and is a childish word-joke for some folks.

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
Larry, about a week ago. Probably trying to call me re:dinner plans.

6. What is your favorite ring on your phone?
one sounds a bit like dance of the sugarplum fairy... gentle, but so quiet I can hardly hear it.

7. What shirt are you wearing?
Green longsleeved button-down

8. Do you "label" yourself?
Why do I see finger-quotes on this one? I tend to label myself as the helper-guy or the nice guy.

9. Name the brand of your shoes you're currently wearing?
Crocs, baby. closest thing to barefoot, these days.

10. Bright or Dark Room?
I prefer a room that's pretty shaded, unless I'm trying to read.

11. What do you think about the person who took this survey before you?
We have pretty divergent interests - makes for interesting reading. Never really met her.

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?

14. What did your last text message you received on your cell say?
BHK letting me know she's out front, so I can pick up the cake for work!

15. Where is your nearest 7-11?
A 10 minute drive from here. There's a little unaffiliated convenience store about 5 or so blocks away, though.

16. What's a word that you say a lot?

17.Who told you he/she loved you last?

18. Last furry thing you touched?
Pye... or maybe Newt. Does my goatee count?

19. How many drugs have you done in the last three days?
Caffiene and vitamins are about the only drug-like substances entering my system, short of perscriptions

20. How many rolls of film do you need developed?
I have a few pictures on cd/hd that would be pretty printed out... but no film.

21. Favorite age you have been so far?
Hmm... I liked myself most physically at about 21. I rather like where I am mentally and socially, now.

22. Worst enemy?
I don't have any active enemies, that I know of.

23. What is your current desktop picture?
BHK at St. Aug on our honeymoon.

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?
I love you - to BHK.

25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly what would it be?
Fly... how? Like superman, effortlessly? On the surface... I'd take flight. If I lived in the "real world", I'd fear all kinds of crazy scientists and the like trying to track me down and dissect me for my secret... if that's the case, I'll take the cash.

26. Do you like someone?
Sure, I like lots of people.
