I don't miss Portland at all. In fact, I think it would be downright weird to go back. Michigan is home now. I love it here, which still surprises me. I would like to go back to see my friends.
You know, friendship is a strange thing. The people I thought I would be friends with here, didn't. The ones I wasn't sure of, did. You can never tell who will be a true friend until you move 2400 miles away from them. All I can say is thank goodness for the internet and texting. Without those two things...well, I dunno what would happen. :)
I had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Spent it over at my brother & SIL's house. My SIL & her mother are amazing cooks, so we got the ultimate dinner. It was epic in its deliciousness. :D
One of my coworkers was there too. He came with us from Portland when we moved back here. It's temporary, but he's already been here 9 months & doesn't see when he'll be able to go back home. My family's kind of adopted him while he's here, inviting him to any & all holidays that he's here. Thankfully he's able to go back to Portland for Christmas. I think it'll do him a world of good to be with his family for that holiday.
We have a very...odd relationship. Antagonistically flirtatious would be the best way to describe it. We flirt, but I can't take him seriously. He's a bit of a douche when it comes to women. 99% of his problem is that he's a Russian male. There's something about Russian men...I don't think I've met any other people who are so...arrogant. Don't get me wrong, I've had wonderful friends who are Russian and I'm not dissing them. I'm just stating that they tend to be very arrogant. And the men are very chauvinistic and it drives me nuts. I'm not a women's libber by any means, but I absolutely hate being dictated to and he's the king of it.
I'm obsessed with Florence + the Machine's Ceremonials. It's hand's down one of the best LPs I've ever heard...and that's saying something. :)
It's hard to choose a favorite song from this CD, but this is probably it. Her voice is just...wow. Check out the whole CD. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. :)
Time to get ready for bed. I'm pooped and need to get up for work in the morning. Why do long weekends always go by so quickly? *sigh*
