Now that we're in 2009, I can look at my plans for January (nil) and see that November is not so boring. Yes, last year I coined a slogan for November, "because November is boring."
Let's delve into what November brought to little Robin:
The weekend after Halloween was the first week in November. Therefore, I donned my costume 2 nights, for 2 parties. At one, there was a guy dressed as the Kool-Aid jug, which was pretty cool. They had a fake maggot at the party. Ew! At the second party, I learned that I dance better in a box than I do without one. I guess I'm a lot less self-conscious that way. It was a dance, dance weekend! As you can see, I was macaroni (and cheese, but my hat was missing in this pic)!
The next day, there was rumor of a giant pinata. You can see it here, above and below. It was in town for a Carnival cruise commercial. Many people stood in line to be in the near circle around it, and then it was supposed to be broken and contained tons of candy. Perhaps the organizers weren't prepared for Philly. The line was broken repeatedly, and then everyone rushed forward, despite commands not to do so. After a while, they just cancelled the breaking of it, and everyone went home. Boooooo!
Later in the month, I captured this gleaming Comcast Center.
Thanksgiving took me to Orlando to visit little Annie girl. In the airport, I found this nifty Lego Liberty Bell.
Thanksgiving Day, just like at home. Nah!
Annie's first bird. She was very proud. It was juicy! I made some tasty Mexican-style leftovers with this. While I was there, we relaxed a lot, slept a lot, went to the movies, cooked, and went to see the Orlando Magic with some friends. It was a very soothing trip, and I had no problem getting on the standby flights, unlike last year.
And here is Jax, to say goodbye!
