Like my first surprise birthday party since the one my parents had for me when I was in the 1st or 2nd grade at McDonalds. Emily gets bonus points for sure. So we started out by having a meal at Mugshot's with Sarah and Cory. For the first time ever with Cory, we had good service. Then we headed back to the apartment to enjoy some Maker's Mark. As we pulled up I could see Hunter through the window. And I was curious. Then I noticed Russ's truck outside. So I put it together and realized what must be going on. Oh it is true, a keg of Killians and a German chocolate cake. Most wonderful bliss. So I finished my first hour of power ever and the night became a blur. Roger sucks at blowing fire but I rule at it. Just like breaking boards, don't trust someone south of the border. So it turned into a late night with Russ, Lehman, and BJ staying the latest. Anyway TJ is the first to post pics, so if you want to see them venture over to facebook and check them out...

So Bright Eyes is the epitome of all that is Emo and and generally I do not care for his music. But the song "At The Bottom Of Everything" is growing on me through the power of the video. "We're going to a birthday party!"
So I ventured into the stock market a couple weeks ago. Woo. Almost one entire share of Apple is what I bought. Actually I own exactly 0.9713 shares of Apple, which is what $61 could buy on November 14th and is worth $70.55 already. Yay stocks! Actually I know it is dumb to put such a small amount into the market because of the proportion of fees, but the only way I will ever pay attention is if I have a stake in it. Anyway a really favorable analyst view of Apple came out yesterday and I know how many mother's have asked me about buying iPods for their kids this Christmas so it is still only going to go up from here.

Thank you Firefox! "Drag and drop reordering for browser tabs" is the feature I have been waiting for. Sadly it really is, no joke. I built a 1.5 rc version the other day on the laptop and apparently it was code named Deer Park because it did not refer to itself as Firefox anywhere.

Friday night was a good night. There was so much food and beer. Emily got some good pictures, and even some video of Roger not breaking a board on his head. Lehman was a pro at breaking them with his hands.
Everyone liked my turkey so this is basically how I did it:
1. Put frozen 20lb turkey into the fridge 5 days before planning to cook it.
2. On the big day pull out the neck and organs and throw them away because they are gross. Wash the turkey well.
3. De-crust two loaves of french bread and cube it into about 1" pieces. Put on baking sheet and sprinkle with olive oil and pepper. Bake for ~15 minutes at 200.
4. Chop up a big onion and some green onion stalks. Saute them with an entire stick of butter.
5. Mix bread cubes with onions and butter and chicken broth until it is mushy. Force as much as possible into the neck cavity and rear end of the turkey.
6. Put turkey in roasting pan and let it go at 325. Every hour, brush on melted butter with pepper and garlic. After the first hour, make a foil tent over the turkey.
7. 5.5 hours and you are done! Butcher the bird! Tap the keg!
So a good portion of yesterday was spent at the Egg Bowl. Josh, Emily, and I walked from the apartment. After the game we took the keg to Chris's and continued the jolly times.
Best week ever for the bike with 831.1 miles on the odometer so it makes a whole 7.4 miles this week.

Twas a good Thanksgiving so far. Tuesday got even better when Dr Lee sent an email that all nonessential staff got a half day on Wednesday. Since I had already had leave for it anyway, that means that I saved four hours. So Emily and I headed out in the afternoon. Made it to Memphis rather quickly and checked into the Holiday Inn Select on Union across from the Peabody. It is not the greatest hotel ever for the price, but it makes up in location. Turns out since I signed up for the Priority Club so I could earn points for IC Hotels, I got two vouchers for drinks or breakfast buffets. So we got ready to go and found the hotel bar for drinks. Went across the street to Pancho's and had supper. The cheese sauce rocks and they had Pacifico. After a while we headed to the Rum Boogie Cafe and listened to the band. I got up with Sesti and they were finally almost there. We arranged to meet at Silky's across the street. Emily and I beat them there. Turns out there was like another dozen people coming to celebrate TJ's birthday. We ordered a bunch of Divers and had a jolly old time. The best entertainment was when the piano player sang an ode to TJ's itsy bitsy weenie. Sadly the place closed early since Tuesday is such a partying night. We headed up the street and ended at the 152 Club. It was fun and Emily made some friends from Chicago. So Wednesday morning, Emily and I walked around Peabody Place and went back down to Beale to eat at the Rum Boogie. Turns out that nachos covered in barbecued pork, cheese, and jalapenos are a heavenly appetizer. After lunch we got the car out of parking and went across town to the Pink Palace musuem. Had fun spending a few hours there, except that Emily had to read everything on every display :) So then we headed out to the Wolfchase to do some shopping. Apparently most of the clothes stores had their prices alread set for the day after Thanksgiving rates so Emily found some stuff for me to get. It was 8:15 PM when we left the mall. I learned the hard way that 78 had redlights through Memphis and does not turn into proto-interstate until you cross into Mississippi. Emily was asleep before we even got to Tupelo, so I stopped and got a Starbucks double shot and some Dr Pepper and made it safely home. Yay for safety! So today Emily and I went to Mathiston. We went by and saw her poor dog Prissy who after fourteen years is not doing so well. She cannot stand up without help and is on pain meds from the vet. After a while we picked up Emily's grandmother and went back to her parents to eat. Later on we took her back home and came back to Starkville where I have been doing a little bit of cleaning on the apartment to get ready for tomorrow.
