In lieu of back posting my way through the months of October and November I’ve elected to skip over them in video game fashion. Don’t you remember when you learned about the Super Mario Brothers cheat that allowed you to skip to the final boss while only completing a fraction of the levels? I’m sure the programmers were happy that all those levels in between were deemed throwaways. What’s a thousand man hours anyway?

Just to recap the last couple of months:

October highlights: The major highlight of October was the Threadbanger Handcrafted Halloween party downtown (NYC). We all had a blast and some lucky winners even won some prizes. Plus we had Indy Mogul Steve and a great metal band play.

Lowlights: The killing of the original Burlesque party the Threadbanger wanted to throw. KIA by the powers that be.

November Highlights: Cousin Wendy’s Bat Mitzvah’s and Turkey Day of course. I’ve got the whole thing chronicled on flickr.

December: At a glance, classes will end this week (for one) and next week for the other. I’m currently on track to finish all my work for the end of the first class, so I’m free of one class after Thursday (this is me cheering).

After next week it’ll be smooth sailing and regular every-day work till Christmas. I’m not making an special gift plans as I’ve already gifted myself a ton of toys this year.

Congratulations to cousin Wendy on her upcoming batmitzvah! My young cousin has a big family month coming up, as do my aunt and uncle. Our Thanksgiving this year falls just a week after cousin W’s big celebration. Considering that, everyone has generously decided to loiter in the greater New York area and stop by the happy family’s house for Thanksgiving dinner.

Plans as of yet are known only to the party planning committee, which consists of my aunt, uncle, mom, and grandparents. As a young person my job is mainly to show up and relieve the happy hosts of their food and drink.

The last few years Mom has hosted the mid-western version of Turkey day. Unfortunately our Labs won’t be coming, as they require double beds that my aunt and uncle have already promised to human relatives. I knew I should have RSVP’d sooner!

I’m sure Mom and Dad will take home plenty of left-overs to gloss over any bad feelings Arthur and Clark have from being left behind.
