Going to attempt a brief summary of my San Diego Thanksgiving:

-My MIL's cats, Andre and Rosie, are getting bigger and fitting into their personalities. Andre is still the big laid back moose, who likes to play and is fine with you picking him up. Rosie was much more adventurous this time, and didn't hide, but she only likes MIL to pet her, and gave little protest squeaks if I came too close.

-Both BIL's (A and J) were in attendance. All three of them could be found on their laptops at any given moment.

-The weather was gorgeous by our standards, but not by the natives. It was misty the first day and we giggled because every news channel kept reporting "STORMWATCH 2008!" It's seriously like spritzing a cat with water and the cat freaking the hell out.

-It did rain hard on Thanksgiving morning. For about ten minutes. Then the sun came out again. Granted, it does get dangerous when it rains because there are no gutters and the roads get very slick and oily (nothing a Midwestener used to icy roads can't handle), but we still imagined San Diegoans complaining, "Thanksgiving is ruined!" Years from now, they will remember the horrible Thanksgiving when it rained and no one came to dinner because they were scared to leave the house.

-Watched the Macy's Day Parade. The float for Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends had Rick Astley! The Brothers Feakins immediately educated their mom about Rick rolling.

-Then watched the Westminster Dog Show. Awww...puppies!

-Took a walk in the sunny weather. Didn't miss snow at all.

-Had dinner at about 4. Sweet potatoes, potatoes, green beans, stuffing...mmm...carbilicious. Napped for two hours afterwards, then watched TV with A and J. Sweet, sweet cable.

Motivation to post...waning. Will post more about the trip tomorrow.

Crossposted this everywhere, so apologies if you're reading this twice.

Hey everyone,

Sex Change Hospital (ugh, never did like that name) is finally airing in the US. For those of you lucky people who have cable, you can watch it on WETV (Women's Entertainment) Tuesdays at 11PM (couldn't air it any earlier, WE?).

For those of you who don't know, my father in law, Jackie, is transgendered. She agreed to have her surgery filmed for this documentary. My husband Shawn and his brother Jonathan appear as the supportive sons.

Jackie is in episode 4 and it should air next week. For those of you without cable, let me know if you'd like to see our dvd copy. Warning: graphic surgery footage.
