Sydney - couch

Too much food and no vacation day for me today... :P

We all must've gained a bunch of weight yesterday (including Sydney who was busy all afternoon scouting around under the table to pick up anything that may have dropped on the floor.) :P After a simply sinful lunch at the in-law's, we trudged over to my uncle's house and had more turkey, that incredible homemade stuffing, and an assortment of delicious pies. :) We left both places with SO many leftovers that I'm sure we'll be eating turkey sandwiches and turkey ala king for a long time to come!

This morning Mark is peacefully sleeping in (he doesn't have to go to work today) while I'm debating fighting the crowd at the mall near my workplace before I go in to work this morning... Traditionally one of the only nice things about working on the Friday after Thanksgiving has always been that I've been able to resist the temptation to go to these sales and spend money... But now that most stores in the mall open at 7am, AND some other stores nearby open at 5am, I really have no excuse any more... :P

What I'm really looking forward to is the weekend! Mark & I plan to go and see "Rent" and then go somewhere nice to celebrate our anniversary. :) I do have to keep reminding myself that to get to the weekend, I will have to make it through work today... ;P
Hopefully it'll be a slow day for us... :P

And sad, sad news in the entertainment industry... Pat Morita passed away yesterday at the age of 73. :( Not only was he the spokesperson for my company (for many years), but he was also an actor that I admired for what he was able to accomplish in spreading the word about his experiences in internment camps during WWII. I will always remember seeing him (when I was in the second grade) in "Farewell to Manzanar", which was one of the first movies I'd seen about the Japanese-American internment camps. He will definitely be missed. :(

I'm off to get ready for work (and possibly a short trip to the mall... we'll see...) Hope you all have a nice day. :)
