Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

We celebrated last Sunday with a deep fried turkey and good friends. We had a great time and managed to eat a good amount of the 9 kilo turkey Coop forced us to buy.

Sounds weird right? Well I'll explain. We ordered a 7 kilo turkey from Coop. When Brian arrived to pick up his turkey on Saturday, he was told that they only had a 9 kilo turkey. The conversation went something like this:

Brian: "I ordered a 7 kilo turkey."
Coop guy: "We only have a 9 kilo turkey."
Brian: "But I only need 7 kilos."
Coop guy: "Well, we only have the one and it is 9 kilos."

You get the picture. So we bought the 9 kilo turkey for only 135CHF; I still shake my head at turkey prices here. And no, they don't let you pay for only 7 kilos because that is what you ordered. It's a conspiracy I tell you!

Anyway, we had a great day. Today has been like any other day except we will watch the parade courtesy of Slingbox this afternoon, which leads me to my list of things I am thankful for this year.

1. Slingbox and the internet. I get to watch the Macy's parade today! And we were lucky enough to watch our alma mater, Lehigh U, beat Lafayette two weeks ago. Woot!

2. Swiss chocolate and the Lindt factory. I dropped a load of cash there this morning. If you have plans to see me while I'm home, chances are you'll get a taste of this sweet goodness.

3. Health, family, yadda yadda. You know the drill. No need to get extra sappy :)

4. Good friends who have become our second family here in Switzerland. Where would we be without them? Bored and lonely I'm sure. Love ya guys!

Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving yall! Have some cheap American turkey for me!
