What's this? The first in a long series of videos from the vacation Sam took three months ago but is only now uploading? Don't wet yourself in excitement.

Do I have blogger-rhea these days or what?
Where are they now?

There has never been a more appropriate time to use the "phrase" WTF?!

TEETH the Movie

No wonder this was an independent film. Can you imagine the studio pitch?

Producer: So there’s this girl…

Studio Head: Yeah?

Producer: She has a vagina.

Studio Head: I’m with you…

Producer: And it has teeth.

Studio Head: (Pauses) Who’s in it?

Producer: Britney Spears.

Studio Head: SOLD. We’ll call it TEETH.
On a more serious note, this article made me cry.

'Twas a very lovely turkey day.

I flew in to Detroit on Wednesday and went straight to Joe Louis Arena to go see my Red Wings...

...and turkey bowling!

'Twas a white Thanksgiving in Michigan.

Linus was pretty excited about it.

Linus was also excited to have some new rooms to explore...

As for Thanksgiving Dinner, it was me, my mom and sister this year - which was awesome because it meant I didn't have to shower or put on nice clothes. Hotness.

It also meant Heather and I got to bring back all the leftovers.

Friday it was off to the Palace of Auburn Hills and yet another Detroit sports game. If only I had gone to the Lions game on Thursday - I could have completed the trifecta!

They had crazy flame thrower thingies that made me literally do the duck and cover move the first time they went off. I'm super jumpy and it sounded like a bomb went off. Goodness, my nerves can't handle such things.

On the drive home Heather and I had to make a pit stop at one of our favorite places on the planet: the beef jerky outlet. Mmm mmm.

I drove the whole way... Ten hours is tons of fun with a hyper golden retriever in the backseat...and sometimes the front...

Clearly Thanksgiving had put everyone in the holiday spirit. This car had a red nose and antlers - and the driver was wearing a Santa hat. Gotta love it.

If I had a only had a car...

As much as working around 34th Street drives me crazy, on my way to the subway this evening I had to put my "too cool for school" attitude aside for a moment and join the other tourists in ogling the Macy's holiday festivities.

This was the cast of Mary Poppins rehearsing for the big day.

I'll be going home tomorrow for my first Michigan Thanksgiving in 7 years. Seems so crazy that it could possibly have been that long...but so it has.
Last night I channeled my inner Spice Girl – it was a “girl power” kind of evening.

1)I finally mustered the courage to do something I’ve wanted to do for a while.

2) I went to see Tegan & Sara at Webster Hall. I effing love them, their music just makes me deeply happy and they sounded great live (and had excellent stage banter!). I’m so used to going to these sausage-fest indie rock shows that it was really fun to go to a concert and hear girly squeals from the crowd.

3) On the way home from said concert Andy and I had a really bizarre cab ride.

Cabbie: Can I ask you a question?

Us: Sure

Cabbie: Did you just have the sex?

Us: Um, no. We went to a concert.

Cabbie: Do you have the sex?

Me: Together? (laughs awkwardly)

Andy: No. We’re roommates.

Cabbie: They say that after the sex the women like to cuddle. Or talk. They want to cuddle or talk after the sex. The men. The men, after they give the love they want to sleep. Why is this? Should the men give the cuddle?

Andy: If they want to keep the woman…

At this point Celine Dion’s “Because You loved Me” comes on the radio. I start singing along really loud and the cabbie turns it up full blast for me. This is really the only way this story fits into the “girl power” theme. Celine’s my GIRL!

Anyway, we get to our house and get out of the cab.

Cabbie: Wait.

Me: What?

Cabbie: Turn around. I never got a good look at your face.

Me: Uhhhhhhhh (briskly trots up the stairs into the apartment and checks the locks 40 times before going to bed)

Remember a million years ago (okay, two months) when we had field day for my sister’s Birthday? I promised to post video of the infamous “Louisville Chugger” but, alas, I could never get the Blogger video option to work. THUS, I have decided to start a Vimeo account. From now on, if I have videos to upload, I will be posting them there and then embedding them on the ole blog. Huzzah.
