Oh, that's a wonderful place to start! Once you meet someone, you never really forget them.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving besides the fact we spent it with my Mother In Law.

The real fun was Saturday when we had don snabulus, Ladybug, Overdroid, Swinebread and Swinebreadina and Swinebread Jr. out to Faber University for a second Thanksgiving. Swinebread Jr. is just about the happiest baby I think I've ever ever met. This leads to all sorts of embarrassing mugging by the adults trying to get him to laugh some more.

Overdroid ran a round of old school Call of Cthulhu which was pretty fun. It's odd getting old enough to have our kids play with us. We stopped the Deep Ones from destroying Los Angeles with a tidal wave. Not that it would've been much of a loss to the world had we failed...

Besides getting our geek on we also spent a lot of time checking the score of the civil war as my Ducks destroyed the cocky OSU Beavers. Even though the Ducks have been spotty this year I had a feeling it would go this way despite home field advantage for the Beavers. This was the biggest game of the year for the Quack Attack and the Beavers would have a tough time not looking past their in state rivals.

Overdroid's girlfriend wisely decided that playing role playing games might not be the best use of her time while she was visiting so she headed downtown to the Portland Art Museum. Even though we're no Seattle, we have a pretty nice art museum which left her impressed.

Lest I forget: happy birthday to #1Animefan who turned 14 yesterday. You're my little sunshine, hon. Here's a Hayao Miyasaki video for you--

That was a wicked awesome campaign and great food. The pear wine was sensational.

Jed took some heat for a couple things, but his timely Tommy gun skills saved us all. Thanks Jed!

Gertrude did a great job too!

Too bad we couldn't spend more time with OD's girlfriend. It is always a kick seeing her cope outside cities of 5+ million people. Very cool person.

Also, Mrs. Wormer deserves many thanks for enduring the toxic levels of geekiness and doing so much work keeping us fed.

Happy Birthday to Ms. Anime. Enjoy Howl's!

I'm just amazed we lived through it and didn't go crazy or die! Thank Mrs. Wormer again too!

That's one of the greatest opening lines to a blog post ever.

Old school Cthulhu? Excellent! So, is Swinebread, Jr. the future ruler of the planet? I just want to make sure I'm on the victorious side 'cause you know how babies grow up to milk all that attention.

Happy b-day to #1Animefan!

I'm already feeling huggy and sentimental and you're not helping, dammit!

Happy birthday spawn of Dean Wormer!

Sounds like Thanksgiving 2 was great. Thanks for not inviting me. You know you could have, its not like I would have dragged the entire We Are family across the continent just to see you!

All your brains are belong to us. That was fun. I posted an image of my birthday gift on my seldom posted-on blog. It is relevant. End of line.
