grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

a warrant

There is now a warrant** out for my thesis defense. I am very happy and nervous all at once. I still have to rework the thesis slightly- one more draft as my advisor told me. But, I have very explicit comments so hopefully this weekend I will be able to pull it off. But, let's set that aside, because tomorrow is Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving for a few reasons: (1) cooking (2) eating (3) Jo and I don't spend Christmas together, so we love to make a big deal about Thanksgiving (and also New Years). We'll spend all day cooking and eating and drinking and then we get to enjoy leftovers which are truly one of my favorite things. We also watch the movie A Christmas Story a couple times, try to ignore the irritating Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and also watch the Twilight Zone marathon. Here are the food & drink plans for tomorrow: * potato stuffing (a family favorite). * sweet potatoes * candied carrots [edit: we nixed these in favor of a new dish- baked pears with olive oil, walnuts and blue cheese- I'll let you know how they come out!] * broccoli and cheese * turkey (for Jo, not for me) * wine * crescent rolls * apple pie with vanilla ice cream * egg nog and spiced rum Happy Thanksgiving!! **A warrant is what you need to file for in our dept before you can defend. I told Jo I had a warrent on the phone today and she was concerned, thinking I had done something to bring on another kind of warrant.
