Ate the requisite turkey, stuffing, potatoes, green beans, gravy. Witnessed the requisite acting out of both children and adults. Received the requisite contrite apologies via phone the next day.

Taught the girls fake Italian accents (hey! whatsamatta you!). Replete with gestures.

Walked in the Parade of Lights! Supposed to just be the girls on their school's float, but we got roped in to keep kids from falling off the back. Big Fun. We waved! We sang! We danced!

I cannot overstate how much I enjoy the movie "The Incredibles." Sharp and witty, with a deeply cool robot spider. And there's a open disdain for mediocrity you don't often see in a kid's movie.

Did I mention the robot spider? Because that's really my favorite part.

And, finally, from the Beating A Dead Horse Dept.: watch the sky tonight, just after sunset. Crescent moon, Venus, and Jupiter, grouped together as if sitting for a photo.

Saw it Saturday, was very pleased with myself, thought of you.

Got any leftovers?

Gordo said...

Ditto on the Incredibles. We haven't worn out our dvd, but we're working on it.

I was admiring the trio as they danced with the clouds on my way home tonight. Gorgeous.

I'd love to watch the sky, except ours is FULL OF CLOUDS!

Eric Shonkwiler said...

Oh, Clowny. Will be in your neck of the woods early January. How's about some of that Maker's Mark?

Clowncar said...

Eating leftovers all week long, E.

It was (and continues to be) a pretty dance, Gordo.

Sorry, Meno. Perhaps you can console yourself with the picture I posted today.

Oh, hell yes, Eric! Might even get some Knob Creek to share for Christmas. Email me at snark66 at comcast dot net and we'll figure out all the grisly details.

The teeny tiny fashion designer is my favorite part of the Incredibles.

Those kidlets are adorable. :)
