I didn't help drive at all the whole way home. whoops.

Those U-shaped pillows that go around your neck are really quite nice

I miss my hotel (but not school)

I brought 6 books, but only read 2-ish

I didn't do any homework

It took mom and dad almost four hours to get home from Boulder

And a turkey-day funny:

A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York the day before Thanksgiving and says,"I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.

"Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams.

We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father says.

"We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her."

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this."

She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "they're coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way !"


  1. "I like to move it, move it"

    Cooking lessons
    3 Tablespoons of salt is probably too much.
    Pyrex Ovenware is not safe on a stove on high.
    Glass shards are not an effective green bean seasoning.
    It doesn't matter what the thermometer reads, if the turkey appears undercooked to the people who are supposed to eat it.

  2. single ply tp doesn't cut it for #2

  3. I don't think I know what you're talking about on that last one...
