It’s video time! My actual favorite from this past week was Episode 16 of Emma Approved. I don’t know much about the story, but it’s finally starting to get good. It’s like the part of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries when Jane finally goes to visit Bing Lee.
If you don’t know The LBD or EA, I’m sorry and you’re welcome.
Otherwise, here’s my real favorite: a “Motown” cover of Katy Perry’s “Roar.” (I know Motown well enough to know that there are different styles within it.) Check out the tambourine guy! If church tambourines were more like this, I might not dislike them so much.

My Thanksgiving was pretty good. I haven’t been able to go home for it since I left the great state of Maryland, but my roommates brought me leftovers and a pie, so that was delicious and made me feel loved. I also picked up some temp work at the UT vs. Texas Tech game greeting on the club level. It was odd being a few hundred yards from the actual game and only seeing it on TV, but the people were great. One even thanked me for working on Thanksgiving. I really appreciated that. It’s easy to forget that every time you go somewhere or buy something on a holiday, that’s because someone had to work.
I have spent today in true holiday fashion: sleeping in, eating a lot, and sitting on the couch watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (or, as I started thinking of it, Harry Potter and the Desperate Need for a Haircut.)

The Novena to the Immaculate Conception starts today. I’ve prayed this one every year since undergrad. I don’t have any special intentions this time; I just want to see what God and the BVM have in store for me.

I went to Target on Tuesday night for some necessities and some groceries. (That’s not to say that groceries aren’t essential, but that I wasn’t about to go to HEB that close to Thanksgiving.) I usually go when I only need a few things, so I get a handheld basket every single time. When I need a bunch of stuff, I just carry a heavy basket.
This time, I got a cart. Big mistake. I think it’s the first time I’ve ever had a full-sized cart at Target, and mine had the squeakiest wheel I’ve ever heard! I’m a true basket carrier now.

And that’s all I have for this week. I will try to be more exciting in the future.
