Well, Thanksgivingness is on the way, or rather, we are on the way to it. Patrick and I drove to Chicago last night on the way to visit his family in Omaha for the holiday. We're enjoying the housepitality of some friends from college who are back in Ohio for the holiday, but kindly lent us their house in exchange for watching the kitties overnight. There is one very loving kitty here, so that's nice....the other one just hides.

Also, I am on my new laptop right now. I'm really loving it to bits.....doing well with typing, though I think I'll prefer the wireless mouse to the touchpad most of the time....the keyboard might actually be better than my regular one in terms of typing. The impetus for getting a laptop right now was to have something that I could work on in the car during our long drive. I've got some serious schoolwork due in the coming weeks, and could not afford to lose this weekend completely, plus I have the concert program due to the printer on Tuesday for the Chorus. I've wanted a laptop for a long time, and am so glad that I got one now. Admitting...windows Vista is not totally impressing me so much. I might grow to like it, but so far, the things I like I think are mostly the speed of the computer and the portability.

Anyhow, I need to do a couple e-mails and then we are getting back on the road, as we have another 7 hours of driving to do, and want to get there on time for Thanksgiving dinner. We are going to one of Patrick's cousin's wedding on Saturday, probably a bit of Black Friday shopping, or at least browsing, and going to see my old friend Ryan who is stationed at the Air Forse base outside Omaha.

Hope everyone has a happy Turkey day today (even if you're not eating any turkey!)

Thanks! Although today is nothing special here in the Great White North. Have a safe drive the rest of the way, and enjoy your time meeting the parents (EEK!)

Hi,Patrick! Some of us on the net have been bonded as friends to Andy and to each other for close to ten years which ought to tell you our friendships are very, very special. You are aready one of us, so
we hope 2009 will be a time when we will FINALLY meet you in person and not just in cyberspace.
Have a safe rest of your trip, and don't be nervous about having your 'rents meet the Zupster. They'll fall in love with him the way we did. Trust me on this.
Happy T Day.

You've been awfully quiet in Eljay land.

OMG, I have not even been on Eljay since before you sent this....I'm probably going on close to 2 months since I have read a thing....I may try to post something so people do not drop me off their friends and stuff....I am a bad Eljayer....
