I have a really quirky idea for a fanfic, inspired by my wife’s little theory about Deathly Hallows and Dumbledore. Think Oliver Stone and JFK. More on this later.

So...somebody was complaining I hadn't updated in a while. So here's an update.

Got some snow this week, which was nice. It temporarily hides the fact that it was all brown and muddy before. I had school vacation, so I worked some extra hours at Sears.

That job is actually turning into something that approches enjoyable, depending on the day. The people are nice. The store manager, Gene, is a bit of a tyrant, but he's a NICE tyrant. He has that talent where he can tell you to go to hell and make you feel good on the way. My immediate superior, Frank, is really cool, and fun to work with. Thursday this past week was inventory, and I was at Sears from 6:45 am, to 6:30 PM. LONG day, but we got a lot accomplished, and I got some compliements on my work ethic.

This past Saturday, I got to drive the big shuttle truck back and forth from the store to the warehouse with stock up goods. It started out as a "quick job, just two or three lawn tractors". It turned into an all day project where I brought stuff and assembeled it and put it out on the floor. THat's okay though, I like working with my hands. Although, it was snowing, and that made driving the truck a bit dicey.

My neice's postponed birthday party was Sunday, so I got to go back to Southern NH for the day. Saw my folks. They're repainting my old room, that was a bit of a shock. In a good way, I guess. I didn't really want them to erect a monument to my memory anyway. Had a good time at my sister-in-law's for the party. Wiped the floor with my 8 year old newphew at Madden 2004 on the PS2. This is a remarkable accomplishement, because he cheats like there's no tomorrow. He alters players stats and so forth, and doesn't warn you ahead of time. But I got the better of him this time, with the ARIZONA FREAKING CARDINALS whomping the Kansas City Cheifs 42-21. He was really nasty about it in the end. Didn't want to play after the 2 minutes warning. Almost shut the machine off, but Sara snapped at him to play to the end, so he just started hitting random buttons. I could have scored again, because he wasn't paying attention, but I just the knee. Something he wouldn't have done, had the roles been reveresed. My newphew needs good sportsman lessons.


I've dissapeared from PS again, but with DTR 18 in the pipeline and well on it's way to being posted, I'm going to try to get back in again.

That's it for now.

Good morning everyone,

It was with a great deal of delight that I arose this morning to discover that the Earth had been blanketed in a layer of white snow, making the whole thing look very much like a Courier and Ives Print. It's still snowing a bit now, I'm not sure how long it's going to go on. It's quite beautiful however, and I've no wish to see it change to rain and get turned into mush.

And now, in honor of Thanksgiving, a list of things I am thankful for.

Sara
What else is there to say? I'm marrying the girl in less than a month. For six years now, she's been a constant presence in my life, a counterpart, a balance. Someone who loves me unconditionally and without question. How can you not be thankful for that? How on earth do you express that thanks? I'm not sure, but I'm trying.

My Family
Despite some of the issues I've had with them over the last several months, particually Mum, the truth is that they have been incredibly supportive of everything this fall. They're funding a good portion of the wedding, and they've been nothing but sympathetic to my attempt to find steady employment. My Dad has done me some incredible honors this fall, particually allowing me to join the SHS football TV broadcasts, a dream I'd been harboring since childhood. And I couldn't ask for a better sibling in my sister, who loves both me, and Sara, to death.

My Job
Yes, I hate subbing. But the fact is, without it, I'd really be broke, so I'm thankful for every day that sucks.

My Friends
(You knew I was going to get there eventually, didn't you?) I'm thankful for all my friends, both the live and in person friends, like Erin (who is working 9 to 9 on Black Friday. We're meeting her at 9:30 to take her our for a drink), and Justin, and Kern (who's going to come up for a visit next winter!), and all the rest. And of course, there's all my PS, friends, and my f-list friends. You folks have been remarkable in putting up with my ranting over the course of the last couple of months, and you've helped keep Sara and I sane. I also want to thank all of you folks who have made writing for PS such a joy in my life. I can't wait to get back to it once NaNo is over.

There are many other things, I'm thankful for, I'm sure, but this is the highlight reel. I hope all my American friends have an excellent Thanksgiving, and those of you abroad, I hope you have a good weekend.

Rejoice and Give thanks to the Lord for He is good!
