http://twitpic.com/r3qw3 - Happy Thanksgiving from Florida!
Thanksgiving already is getting rowdy. My Polish granny tried to pick a fight with another family over whose grandchildren were cuter…
…and I accidentally high-kicked my shoe at my cousin’s husband’s head. Ah, the traditional Thanksgiving seafood buffet at the inn!
Love advice from my granny over Thanksgiving dinner: “Get ‘em young, treat ‘em rough, tell ‘em nuthin.’” She is so great.

The airport in Charlotte, N.C., has a rum bar, a tequileria and a BOJANGLES CHICKEN. I hope I have a long layover on the way home!
forgot the power cord to my MacBook and had to rent a workstation at the airport. I feel like a business professional—kind of like a tool.

All today’s tweets can be traced to fact @SarahPalinUSA tweeted. If I invent Twitter Stylebook & make millions, it’s because #Palin tweeted.
Thanks, @ckanal, @myfirsttweet! I thought I’d heard of a such an anthropological dig through Twitter. ;)
My first tweet: “now has a personal Twitter account, so she isn’t tweeting about random things from work as @couriernews. ;)” Not too bad!
