17 C

BRRRRRRRRR it is cooold today! man. i enjoy a good fall chill to the air, but driving a scooter isn't too friendly in these conditions. thank goodness for my puffy winter coat and all of the geese that help keep me warm.

did i tell you i watched a special on chicken farms? organic, free range chickens are a million times happier than factory farmed chickens. and they're chemical-free. i started eating organic chicken when i was at home and it really tastes a loooot different. AND did you know they kill baby boy chicks? they have no use for them. they're used to feed reptiles at zoos and ground up to make pet food. sad. not sad enough to kill my love of BBQ though.

i have to get in bed immediately but today was good. went to latini's for the first time in what seems like a long time. they're all decorated for christmas and it looks really beautiful.
class tonight was fun. we played a game with flashlights. they really liked the wind-up one, fajjy.

tomorrow: thanksgiving craft project and attempting green bean casserole with tempura battered onions

Did you miss the Texas - Texas A&M game on Thanksgiving Day? Guess who won?

I can vouch for the Peter Mayle books--I have all three of them if you can't round them up elsewhere. Vive le France! Also, I recommend Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro (fiction), Polio by George Oshinsky (nonfiction and really really interesting--he teaches at UT!), Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri (fiction), I'm also an authority on books about the Oxford English Dictionary if you're interested in something like that. It's really interesting!
