Thanksgiving

I am writing this post-Thanksgiving while in my food coma.

Not only do I have a food baby (that I am patting with love) but I think it may be twins.

I woke up this morning, weighed myself, and then did not eat anything until the big meal.  Afterward, I weighed myself, and I was about 4.6 pounds heavier than in the morning.  And then I ate some pie and ice cream.

Take THAT, Thanksgiving!  I win, again!

I contributed my annual mashed potatoes, opening of the cranberry sauce can, and reminded my mom that turkey needs to be roasted to 165 degrees (F).  While helping, my parents asked if I could help around the house.

Apparently, their cable remote wasn't responding anymore.  "It's a scam!" said my Dad.  "They want to charge $50 to come fix it after we were on the phone."

"Old people!" I responded, jokingly.  "Thinks anything wrong with technology is a scam; but really you just did something wrong."

My dad handed me the remote, and no joke...in 10 seconds I had it fixed.  Maybe less.  (He had the tv on the tv input instead of AV2.)  "Old people!" I said again.  My mom laughed.  Then I fixed the CD player in about 3 minutes.

"How did you do that?!" asked my dad.

"It's that college education."

Not really.  :)

Okay.  I'm tired.  And full.  And my food baby is kicking.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

Luminously 4 Weeks

I'm finishing my 4th week with L-Job!

I'm excited; we have gotten more access and can now do more types of transactions!  Of course, with more power comes more responsibility :)  Today was the first full day of my new access, and I stupidly decided to stay home to work instead of going into the office.  As a result, I sent multiple people multiple questions via Google Chat.

I also announced that I have given myself a nickname: The Shameless Questioner.

I've never been shy about asking questions.  I like clarifying.  I like knowing exactly what to do.  I like doing the right thing.  I don't care at all if someone things I'm stupid for asking questions because I know my questions aren't stupid (for the most part).
