The post-Thanksgiving post, as it were…

Hmmm… Tygerlander seems to have a point in her LJ:

Concensus sez… That Thanksgiving sucked for the majority of my friends.

More often than not I’m seeing people complain about Thanksgiving, from people getting sick from what they DID eat for Thanksgiving to other people getting roped into doing tech support for their families. Ugh.

In my case, I can’t really complain too much about Thanksgiving, as it went okay. It wasn’t great, but it was okay. We had the standard Thanksgiving fare of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, and gravy. For dessert, Mom picked up a Cheesecake Factory cheesecake with four different kinds of cheesecake in it. Then, after dinner, I lay down for a nap… only to be woken by my Blackberry going off. :-/ *sigh* I ended up being groggy and crabby for an hour or so afterwards, and spent the rest of the afternoon preparing for the Big Upgrade.

(The Big Upgrade, as it were, is simply an upgrade to the main server. I’ll be putting the old motherboard, CPU, and memory from my main PC into it, and upgrading the operating system to Slackware Linux 10.2. The preparation was just me backing up certain files from the operating system hard drive. I’ll start at 1 PM CST, so obviously the main site will be down for a good part of the afternoon…)

Anyway, all in all, it was a decent Thanksgiving all told. Now my plan is just to enjoy the rest of the four-day weekend, and avoid going out of the house if I can at all help it. No shopping for me… heh.

  1. There is? I hadn’t even noticed, truth be told. It’s probably from either Mom’s old car or Dad’s old car, considering both were mid-80’s Dodge-type vehicles that sometimes had trouble keeping themselves together. (Hell, there’s probably still an oil stain on the left turn lane to Sorrell Ridge on Louetta where the Mirada one day 12 years ago dropped its driveshaft.)

    Otherwise, I can’t think of which of our current vehicles could have caused it; they’re all recent-model cars in excellent working order.

    Good to hear from you, though… hope life’s treating you well out that way! :-)
