What we REALLY do at Microsoft

Not a whole lot to report that's out of the ordinary. Work is work. We had a subteam lunch today, and I discovered that I'm one of two unmarried people on my subteam, and I'm the only one who was born in America. (There were eight people there)

One of my friends had a birthday in November, so we did this to her office. She and her officemate had fun working the next day. :) This sort of thing is not uncommon at all around here, particularly if someone's getting married.

Thanksgiving, etc.

It was really nice to have those days off work, and even though I wasn't able to go back home, I did manage to have two very nice Thanksgiving dinners. I spent Thanksgiving day with Justin and his family, and I had dinner Friday night with Sam's family (they did Thanksgiving a day late because her grandfather had to work on Thanksgiving). I got to eat lots of turkey and other good food. :) I'm definitely thankful that I'm in a place with good friends that function somewhat as a home away from home.

Apparently, I don't look old enough to be living by myself. A few nights ago, I had some friends over and we heard the doorbell ring. This was strange because we weren't expecting anyone else, and I don't usually get random people at my door. It turned out to be a kid, about 13 years old or so, selling newspaper subscriptions. He looked at me and asked, "Is your mom or dad home?" I did not reply, and I must have looked angry or something, because he quickly added, "Or... are you the lady of the house?" Hah. I did not buy his newspaper subscriptions. Clearly because my mommy and daddy weren't home. >:o
