First time I slept all the way through the night since I got sick. I feel so refreshed!

My oldest son drove us to Brooklyn yesterday in my car. He hasn’t driven in eight years and he’d never used power brakes before – so I was jolted a lot, but it wasn’t too bad. And my youngest and his wife made a beautiful Thanksgiving table; I just wish I’d been able to eat more of it. Then we watched a movie (Steven Spielberg’s “Super 8”, which was such a pastiche of/homage to other movies, it seemed to have no center of its own).

Oh, and I brought a toy for the dog – a stuffed-plush tree trunk with three little squirrels inside. She had a ball ferreting out the squirrels all night.

How was your Thanksgiving?

P.S. Found out from my son, who’s seen him at art galleries, that Robert DeNiro is only about 5’7 or 8. Damn, he looks tall on the screen, doesn’t he?

  1. I was invited by a friend’s aunt to join the family dinner. The food was very good and the conversations interesting. The aunt is a freelance French translator and is still very active at 83. It was a very relaxing afternoon — no TV, no sports, just adults talking about stuff while eating.

  2. Programming note (other than football), LINK TV: 3 pm today, Glenn Greenwald: Liberty and Justice for Some. 5:30 pm Sunday, The Democratic Revolutionary Handbook.

  3. Mine was great. Ex-husband came up, and we were all mellow. He was sick-ish, so we all took naps after dinner. Very strange to hear that familiar set of sleep-noises after 8? years.
    And we watched Animal House.
