balloons, lip-syncing floats, and marching bands.

"No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and one voice, by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens."
-Abraham Lincoln

I'm killing time while waiting for my chance to sign out. I'm not going to get to be on break though until way later. I have a night class in Ft. Wayne tonight. Let me give a synopsis of my schedule for the next 16 hours or so:

4:45pm- leave for Ft. Wayne
6:00-9:00pm- class in Ft. Wayne
10:00pm - drop classmates off at Taylor and drive straight to a friend's house in Indy
11:00pm- arrive at friend's house and probably go to bed asap.
3:30am- wake up and get ready for airport
4:15am- leave for airport
5:00am- arrive at airport
7:15am board flight
9:20am- arrive in NYC

no sleep.

With all that being said, 5 days in the big apple with my family is going to be rad. I just found out today that Chris and Angela (brother and sister in law) are staying in Nathan's apartment with us, and my parents are getting a hotel. Party anyone? And by party, I mean staying up playing video games and watching movies.

I'm sure I'll have quite a bit when I come back.
Have a good Thanksgiving.
