Happy Monday evraybody! I am so glad to be home I feel like having a Thanksgiving dinner. Maybe next weekend. Thursday night's dinner, with family at a restaurant in Southern California, was just so-so. OK truth be told it was so-so bad. Did I mention I'm SOOOOO happy to be back in my beloved city, even my crummy apartment seems good to me? Aaaand I have to go back in a couple of weeks to go with my mom to get her hearing aid in hopes that the third time is lucky and she won't return it.

Oh and my family is weird. There I said it.

I missed the venthole! I really needed to vent. After a while without Internet though, I fell into a strange news-less dream that just went on and on. It took my infernal daughter having a cussing tantrum fit to get me the heck out of there.

On with the show. Craig's back, yay! Tonight he has on Lily Tomlin and Matthew Gray Gubler. Here are some little known facts (hat tip to Man Oh) about Lily Tomlin: her real name is Mary Jean, she was the first woman to appear solo in a Broadway show, and she was the voice of Ms. Frizzle on The Magic School Bus on TV. She is in a new TV show called Malibu Country with Reba McEntire. Here are some little known facts about Matthew Gray Gubler: he is a second-generation Las Vegasian and he changed his name to Matthew Gray Gobbler on Thanksgiving.

In lieu of last week's reruns, here (scroll down) is an awesome picture of Craig (via RSA news.)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
