Thanksgiving was wonderful, as per usual, and I really didn't want to go to work this morning. Not all the family could make it, but it was great seeing everybody - at both houses - and we ate quite well. Bonus - no traffic, in either direction!

Some quick things:

1. Congratulations are in order to my lovely and esteemed kayhoe, who got her first sale to a complete stranger this morning.

2. I've been looking forward to making my best-of-2007 lists for a while, now, but then I downloaded the new Daft Punk live album, and it's throwing all my lists out of whack. I'm a neophyte as far as Daft Punk is concerned - I know some of the singles, and that's about it - but this live album is fucking amazing, and now I want more. (Those of you that know better - where should I start? I'm tempted to eschew the proper albums and just go for Musique Vol. 1.) My biggest music-related regret of 2007 is that we didn't stick around for more than the first 10 minutes of their set at Lollapalooza - we were tired, and LCD Soundsystem had just blown our fragile little minds, but GODDAMN.

3. Finished Assassin's Creed, and then started Mass Effect. More details here.
