Our turkey day was full of thanks and food and more food. Just the two of us, and a 17 pound bird … shedloads of leftovers, needless to say. Marcia’s job-hunt continues, and I’m back to work tomorrow after a week off. It’s been very weird, frankly. I did a lot of schoolwork – both for the week in progress, and groundwork for the final website project. I played some Half Life 2, and watched a bit of Top Gear UK. And the week is gone, just like that.
