Thanksgiving,and the end of the semester

Has it really been only three months since the beginning of the semester? because it feels like forever ago.

For Thanksgiving, we went to Indiana, a land of cornfields, cold weather and delicious Kentucky bourbon pecan pie (pretty sure the bourbon was cooked out). My roommate Ilana had family and was nice enough to invite me to join them for Thanksgiving. We had delicious free range turkey (I really shouldn't eat things like that, can't afford to get them...), stuffing (blech, not my thing), creamed corn, loaded mashed potatoes, Zingerman's rolls (it's a ridiculously overpriced deli in Ann Arbor), and a green bean casserole made from a Paula Dean recipe (which, surprisingly didn't have butter or cream in it, but was so rich anyway).

On the way there, we stopped at a place called The Chocolate Garden, because we thought it would be a garden of chocolate, it wasn't. It was a ridiculously priced truffle place, where I got the best truffle I've ever had and only had to shell out $5.79 for 2 (ridiculously priced).

On the way back, we took a detour through rural America and I realized that Indiana is the state everyone passes through on their way to something else, probably for good reason, it was awfully bleak.

Semester is almost over, finished a 30ish page research report last night at 2 am, woohoo!

Not that I'm counting down or anything, but 17 days until I get to go home.

And, only 16 days until Tron, please enjoy the following picture of Jeff Bridges.
