Thanksgiving for the Memories
Sorry I've been MIA over the past couple of days, folks. Spent a little holiday time up in the mountains of Susquehanna, Pennsylvania* with my wife, our baby, and a whole lot of extended family.
There wasn't much in the way of wi-fi, but we did manage to put a tiny local pub to good use for a few nights. Highlights included Jayne dancing and shouting along to P!nk's So What, me and a future cousin-in-law -- a kid named Brian who sports a kick-ass Exploited-style mohawk -- downing a bunch of Jager-bombs, and a final bar tab that cost all of us what two drinks in New York City would've.
By the way, if anyone in that area has seen my wife's shirt, she'd very much like it back.
Regular posts resume tomorrow. Hope everyone had a great holiday.
*Fun Fact: Susquehanna is considered a holy place by Mormons because it's where Joseph Smith -- Prophet, Seer, Revelator, and Con Man -- supposedly translated the magical golden plates that comprised the Book of Mormon, given to him by the Angel Moroni, into English. Yes, people believe this crap. I had planned to get a picture of me throwing up on the town's memorial statue of Smith, but unfortunately we were far too drunk to find the thing.
