I have nothing to do today. Well, nearly nothing... we have to go have dinner with Mrs. Geek's relatives to help devour the leftovers. Beyond that, I have pretty much nothing I need to do.
I need the time off. The work from the last few weeks has been eating away at me. I've felt so tired recently that I find myself forgetting how I want to finish sentences while I'm speaking them. My digestion is off. The only thing that's kept me going is nervous energy.
Turkey Day with our friends D. and J. was a fine time. They served a dinner in about four courses: some horsd'ouvres, a soup course, the main course, and a dessert course. The first course consisted of bread and pate and various savory pastries with a charming riesling. The soup course was a butternut squash soup with a very nice viognier. The main course was a delicious heritage breed roast turkey and side dishes with a good pinot noir. The dessert course was a pumpkin cobbler and some pecan pie with a dessert wine. We watched the movie Love Actually between the first two courses. We also played a hilarious game of Apples To Apples. I brought the pecan pie, some twice-baked potatoes and a selection of single malt scotch, which we consumed after dinner.
