Giving Thanks for Thanksgiving

I've always enjoyed Thanksgiving, but now I enjoy it even more. Kelly comes to visit and we spend a week hanging out, watching movies, playing video games and board games and shopping for Christmas. It's a most excellent time.

I've got all sorts of fun things planned. We're going to rent a bunch of video games, including Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and Simpsons: Hit and Run. I'm also thinking about Karaoke Revolution (the bastard sibling of Dance Dance Mix Revolution).

It's been a very nice Sunday. It's been raining since last night (a few breaks) and we've got a nice pot of soup simmering on the stove and the rain falling outside and Rush Hour is on TBS. Perfect evening.
