Something I'm Not So Wild About:
Or more accurately, the crowds at the Thanksgiving Day Parade. At the begining of the parade I was just fine...there were a lot of people but I had my own space and nobody was pushing me around so they could get better spot.

Then some lady thought I would move if she repeatedly rammed her stroller into my feet/ankles. She must not have been aware of my opinion about people with stollers (oh you aren't either? Well...I could go on and on about it, but my sweetie would tell me that I need to get over it, so here's a summary: I understand that strollers make life SO MUCH EASIER for parents...but I feel like some of them like to use their strollers as weapons to get people out of their way). Yeah, this lady was a memeber of the strollers as weapons group...so I stood my ground and did not move one inch. NOT. ONE. INCH. When she finally gave up (ten minutes later) I wanted to turn around and shout "Yeah. That's right. I'm not movin' for your stroller that doesn't even have a kid in it or anywhere near it," but I thought it would probably start a riot, so I kept quiet.
After that I occupied myself with the parade:
Here are a few of my instagram photos (there are more over on the sidebar--if you're interested)...
Other than that, Thanksgiving was delightful...no...SUPER delightful. E's brother and sis-in-common law (they're like me & my sweetie...pretty much common law married--is common law even a thing anymore??) are in town to help us take a few things that we don't need out here to MN. So, we all went into the city and met up with one of E's pals from work for the parade (which...even though it doesn't sound like it...I DID enjoy...when I was away from the crowd). Afterwards we took the train back to dirty Jersey and had ourselves a Thanksgiving Ham and watched some football. We followed that with a trip to Liberty State Park to see Lady Liberty all lit up for the night.

Like I said...SUPER delightful Thanksgiving. I hope everyone else had a Happy Thanksgiving. Next time you hear from me, it'll be from The Star of the North--MINNESOTA!
