This year was a big thanksgiving year. When I was a little kid we always had a family dinner with my parents, my sis and I but it was nothing special, just an ordinary dinner but for a reason. Now that we are all older thanksgiving has become a bit of an event. This year my family, Domi's mum and sis and my sisters boyfriend all gathered at my parents for a feast. My mother cooked turkey and a whole heap of American foods from her childhood. Many of them I had never even had before which was amazing. She did my favourite, Sweet potato with maple syrup and marshmallow on top, and after eating the whole turkey we enjoyed banana splits for desert. Not a bad night.
Last night was another celebration but a celebration of another kind. It was a surprise birthday party for my long time friend, Adam. The surprise party was organized, one to celebrate his birthday but two because he hates birthdays and celebrating them. Its always fun to give him a hard time so that's what we did last night. There was beer and incredible cup cakes. A good night.
A band I'm obsessed with at the moment are The Gaslight Anthem. Here they are playing "The '59 Sound" with Bruce Springsteen. Mad. Check it.
