The first part of this devastating holiday season has come and gone. I am wider, softer, and more tired than I was a week ago. What does that mean? It was a great, multi-feast Thanksgiving. To recap, I partook in three glorious meals. Two on Thanksgiving (at my cousin, Maria’s house…we Italians know how to throw down), and then another at the Rossi parent’s house on Saturday. I got to spend a ton of quality time with the Jen, my parents, and my nieces and nephew. We had a celebration for the engagement as well as an early birthday celebration. Everything was capped off by a gig with el Habito Male at the Acoustic Café in CT.
I feel completely brain dead today. It might have to do with either the “turkey sweats” or the endless drive home last night. Tonight, Jen and I are “celebrating our love” by getting Indian cuisine and a DVD. I personally will be celebrating my first successful (the word is relative) completion of a short story as well as the opening night of editing the novel.
