Memory foam?, . . . no, forgetful foam. . .

was one of the things I'd heard over the Thanksgiving holiday. Along with 'I don't like Ohio State, I don't like their coach and I don't like their fans. . .' It should be noted that this was uttered by a die-hard fan of the SEC. I really don't think it wasn't meant to represent actual distaste for the state of Ohio or its residents. This guy is just passionate about his college football and remembering how Ohio State won the BCS Championship in 2002. I'm back from Alabama now, and I'll have some photos up here 'directly:' one which features a deer hunter riding a bike as well as the caricature of a turkey made from Thanksgiving day portions and meal options: very Giuseppe Arcimboldo. For now, you can check out this image created by my friend and colleague Jacob Gerber (with light technical assistance lent by yours truly).

Lastly, watched Old Joy, a film by Kelly Reichardt. Featuring performances by Daniel London and Will Oldham, its about the tension between two friends whose lives have taken different paths. Really subtle and not overacted, its captivating to see the film unfold. Plus, these characters journey into the Cascade Mountains on foot for the weekend, so when it ends, you're exhausted from their hiking and relaxed by the hot springs the final scenes take place at.
