A Holiday-Themed Excuse to Show Off Some Pictures From Holly's Visit
This is my thankful post. So much of the internet is dedicated to complaints and complaints about complaints, that it is about time to give thanks. After all, life is pretty good, isn't it. And no, the timing of this post has nothing to do with a certain holiday that occurred this past week.
I am thankful for my family. Especially the ones that come and visit us, as my sister Holly did this weekend (as demonstrated by this - may I say artsy - picture I took on our trip to DC). And of course, I am also thankful for the ones that comment on my blog.
I am thankful for Virginia, to copy the answer that Theresa gave during an amazing dinner we had at out Grandparent's place in Buena Vista last Thursday. It is nice to live in a beautiful part of the world (case and point below), and I have been given so many opportunities here, such as being able to attend UVa and getting a good job for next summer.
And certainly not least, I relate the same answer I gave directly after Theresa extolled the virtues of the old Dominion: I am thankful to Theresa - she may have a playful streak (which is not at all annoying in any sense of the word), but she certainly brings copious amounts of joy to my life. I also love her hat in this picture - she looks like a burglar)
Now for what I am definitely NOT thankful for, since we don't want too much gratitute in one place. I HATE CHRISTMAS ADS: they represent all that is wrong with capitalism by pretty directly saying that you will not be happy unless you buy lots of stuff (and that your loved ones will hate you if you don't get them what they want). OK, I'm going to stop here. I could get carried away...

Today Is ***** Holiday In Canada (Mostly) Today is a holiday in many, if not most, places in Canada. How and whether this holiday comes to be is itself perhaps a significant portrait of the country itself: in some provinces it is a statutory holiday; in other provinces it is a civic holiday, and up to municipalities to name and proclaim; in [...
A holiday tale, plus some grousing As I get into the holiday spirit, my thoughts turn to that odd intersection of life: Christmas and my law firm, and all the different types of holiday observations I’ve seen in nearly 16 years...
