I was too preoccupied with my dad's job loss and family stuff, that I forgot to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. So, although it may be late, I hope everyone had a great time. ^_^

My Thanksgiving was filled with much fun with family. Being that my grandpa's health seems to be deteriorating slowly, the family from southern California have been coming up to San Jose much more often and this holiday was no different. Some good times were had and I got to spend a good chunk of time with my cousin Teddy from Pasadena. Hell, I spent so much time with family, I didn't get to play FFXI all that much. *gasp* ^_^;

My uncle's such the opportunist. Family come up: he just happens to buy some tile for his kitchen. Before I knew anything, he gave my house a ring on Saturday and told my cousin and myself to help with something. He never even said what it was, so we were all: "eh...?" until we heard from my aunt after already leaving the house. ^_^;;; It's not that we would have minded, but could have at least told us what we were getting called to do. -_- Well, it was my first tile laying experience and, let me say, it wasn't that bad. I wasn't asked to actually lay down the tile, as two of my cousins had it covered, but I had to work on putting down some cement slabs, which acted as a platform for the tiles. At least they bought us dinner and pearl tea afterwards. XD

It's not everyday that I'm touched by a kind gesture, but I support them guys at Penny Arcade in their latest venture. They have worked out a deal with the Seatle Children's Hospital and AmazonCOM to give video games to the sickly kiddos for Christmas. That jesture itself is nice, but that probably wouldn't, by itself, touch me too much, but looking over the donations, I see people are donating the cash for a PS2/Xbox/GT3 Pack/etc. To see a good few people donating $100+ is quite compelling. I'll try to scrounge together some cash to donate something myself. Maybe not stuff along the lines of what I mentioned, but at least a GBA game or equivilent. I highly recommend that people at least look over the wishlist, even if you chose not to donate anything.
