I love it that you're an anti-Vikings fan, especially today. Bears started out looking lame for the first few minute and quickly turned that around.

Man! That was a fun, fun game. Now the Packers need to lose. I think maybe I saw that Race was a Giants fan. I will be rooting for the Giants against the Pack.

After that mess on that Monday night game against SF, the Bears had to play excellent -- and they did. It's not so much that the back-up quarterback isn't good (he's not that good), it's that the Bears need the team leadership Cutler gives.

Happy dance! Bears win!

Well, we agree on the Bears. Bain Capital, like all bankers, are in it for what they can get away with. That's the game of investment bankers. To use football analogy -- if the regulators don't see it, and they don't get penalized, is it really against the law? I believe that's the thinking.

Yeah, my dad was teasing me about missing out on his stuffing so I told him to freeze and FedEx some. My mom just emailed me to tell me that my turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy will arrive tomorrow morning. She also suggested I pick up some cranberry sauce and green beans.

Tell your mother she has set an impossibly high bar for the rest of us with kids who aren't in town.

I seem to recall your spending not a small amount of money to ship something like a keg of rootbeer to your kid!

There is a reason my husband usually does the grocery shopping without me. I am an impulse buyer. I saw velveeta and had to have it. It wasn't on sale, but I didn't care. I had velveeta and hormel chili dip for lunch today. I feel kinda gross now, but it was So Good!

Hubby was almost seriously looking for a couple other beer groupies to go in on a pallet of beer from Alaska. for the longest time, it hasn't been available here, unless you were leaving chicago on an Alaskan Airlines plane, by anything smaller than a pallet that had to be dropp shipped to a warehouse. he works near his company's main warehouse, so it was feasible, but nothing came of it.
