Post-Thanksgiving relaxation time!

Is it possible to STILL be sleepy from all the turkey you ate yesterday?! :O

I hope everyone had a wonderful and tasty Thanksgiving!! This was my first time cooking a full Thanksgiving meal, and everything came out WONDERFUL - no kitchen mishaps, nothing cooked improperly, everything done at the same time and nice and hot with juicy turkey! How in the heck did I do THAT?! :)

And today ....... BLACK FRIDAY.

In all of my shopping days I have never gotten up before the butt-crack of dawn to do Black Friday, with two exceptions. One was with an ex-boyfriend when we still lived in Massachusetts, to drive up bleary-eyed with the headlights on over the border of New Hampshire (no sales tax up there) about an hour away, to some sort of Best Buy type place where the line wrapped around the store and it was about two degrees out. And we didn't even make it out of the store with anything. Boy, that sure was delightful!

The second exception was today; Mr. Cats and I have been wanting a Playstation 3 for years now, and they had a great deal at GameStop where you could get the system plus 3 free games, so we went half and half on it and got one at 5:30am today. :) AND the best part, it only took about half an hour, so I was able to come back home and slide into bed around 6am. Sweeeet! We've been playing Gran Turismo and Little Big World all day! :)

Tonight we're going to get some Starbucks and go to the big tree lighting~! Can't wait!

And oh, I got an award from the lover-ly Meg over at Lost in Thought! Thank you!!!!!! :)

I'm a Superior Scribbler! WOOHOO!! :D I'm supposed to tell seven facts about myself, then tag some other folks to join in the fun. Okay, here goes...

1. On the video game topic, I started off playing an Atari when I was 5, then got my very first Nintendo at 9.... and it aaaaaall went from there! I've been playing video games all my life!

2. I used to hate salsa, but now I ADORE it. One of my favorite snacks is just a big bowl of tortilla chips and some fresh salsa.

3. I often have many, many dreams in the course of one night. Sometimes they are weeeeird!! But rarely do I have nightmares.

4. I am a homebody - I am generally happiest when I am at home, relaxing and doing things around the house. Sometimes I like to go out for extended periods of time or travel, but most weekends you will find me happily chillin' at the house. :)

5. I am claustrophobic! We were watching a Mythbusters show last night where they were trying to bust the "three inch punch" out of the coffin from Kill Bill, and they had a guy in a coffin, and the close quarters camera really started to freak me out.... eee....

6. I never dreamed I could be so lucky as to live by the beach - but here I am!!! :D 10 minutes away! (5 on a good day!)

7. I was one of the first kids in my kindergarten class to start reading; when I was 5 I read The Night Before Christmas all by myself at our Christmas pageant.

Yay! Now to tag some awesome bloggers...

Laura over at Anything But Blonde; she's a military wife living over in Germany, and she posts some LOVELY photos!!

Congrats on the PS3!!! I totally want one too, but mostly because I keep accidentally ordering BluRays online and then CAN'T EFFING PLAY THEM when they come here. Yes, I am a total spaz. Why do you ask?

Also, I got your FB request and was all excited and then I accidentally hit "ignore" and swore a little and then searched for you but Facebook thinks you don't exist!!! What the eff? Please to excuse my spaziness and request again?

Mmm... hot salsa and tortilla chips sound AMAZING right now! I, like you, used to hate hot salsa but now I adore it!

I'm honored - thank you so much.

And by the way, you're an absolute freak for going on Black Friday.

I'm such a schmuck and still editing photos....the next post about Cambodia will be up tomorrow evening.

I hope.
