Merry Danamas from your friends at The Nation! May ye all be showered in bacon and Snuggies this holla-day season.
Never a dull moment in Harrisonburg! Oh wait, are we talking about the Turkey Capital? The same place where Walmartin’ is a verb? So something indeed very exciting and slightly panicking happened while at home in the ‘burg for the Thanksgiving holidays. Contrary to popular belief, I was not cooking.
Turns out we had a suspected gas leak, so mother dearest called 911, and asked the operator specifically to NOT send trucks. So obviously she sent 4.
As they came blaring up our dead-end street, The Twin and I ran for cover, due to sheer mortification. The troops came in FULL gear (hats, oxygen tanks, masks, etc.) and rather disappointingly did not resemble anything that I had learned about firemen from the internets.
After it seemed improbable that the house was going to spontaneously combust from a gas leak, I took the opportunity to inquire if the firemen had slid down the pole for us. (No).
The house was eventually cleared by the firemen and gas guy. We are saved!!
Happy Danagiving! Hope everyone had a turbaconducken for the feast!
Happy Danaween from your friends at The Nation.
What’s everyone’s costumes this year? Here’s a hint of mine: http://twitpic.com/noflp
Kiss me.. I’m Italian?
Let the real Irish along with the fair weathered and pretend Irish have their day.. at least it involves green beer. We will totally hop on that bandwagon.
Christmas break in Seattle!
Obligatory Niketown shot. I stop in probably twice a week. Hey, it’s right across the street from my bus stop! Totally valid excuse.
Pre! Technically more of an Oregon thing, but I’ll take it. Also upcoming: roadtrip to Portland for another swooshtastic day with my favorite Tarheel. Actually, technically he might be second, after Tyler Hansbrough.
Busy at work.. Celebrity Salvation Army bell ringing. Basketball legend Sheryl Swoopes and Storm mascot Doppler ring it in. Check out Swoopes’ kicks!
Dusting off 8 years of basketball rust and playing on the Sonics/Storm practice courts.
Who said anything about rain and overcast weather? Snowpacalypse in Seattle! Seattle-ites are worse than Atlantans!
Oh, and Sue Bird has one sweet ride.
