    So many people don't get that movie. What the hell kind of families do they have?

    What's bugging me now? Not family. We live 6 hours away from everyone we're related to, and it's mostly a good thing.

    I'm just irked that I caught my daughter's cold. But TG was just fine. My house is nice and quiet now. The food was good, and we have a glorious new dog! She's really our daughter's dog, and one day, our daughter will move out and take the dog with her. I've accepted that. But for now, she's a great dog, a beautiful collie, just a year old or so, that I found at the humane association. Such a cuddly, lovey-dovey sweet thing.

    Life is pretty good.

        actors ever since I first saw him portray the Texas governor in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.  He can make me laugh out loud (like in Whorehouse and Home for the Holidays), or cry like a baby (like his guest appearance in that NCIS episode).

        The only thing that really threatened to ruin my Thanksgiving happened a couple hours before the meal when a friend and I took cookies and lemonade to the local Walmart for the picketers.  We were there about a half-hour listening to the picketers' stories, which were all horrifying, depressing or infuriating - or all three.  But the trip turned uplifting to see how grateful these people were for the attention we gave them, the willing ear to hear their stories, and of course the treats.  Bless these workers and fie on the Walton family for being such self-righteous, greedy bastards.

      •  I love Aunt Gladdy and her lamps. Love (0+ / 0-)

        when Dylan McDermott shows up on the plane with the lamp, and when Robert Downey Jr. dances with his mom and attacks the car the uptight sister is in.
