Traffic. Most of the California freeways are bumper to bumper or low speed. LAX and Ontario International are help up. I can imagine what it's going to be like for Christmas. I have a flight already booked for the weekend right before Christmas so I'm leaving at least 2-3 hours early to the airport. Traffic's especially worse at that time. Both THanksgiving and CHristmas.

This year I have to work the afternoon shift at a fast food restaurant the day after Thanksgiving... Yeah, not going to be pretty. Probably will be understaffed like usual. I'm not a big fan of some Christmas music, it's just really annoying in so many ways. I'm not a big fan of putting up decorations either. I usually have to haul the tree down stairs and set it up. That tree is set up in the weirdest way so it's really hard to find where to plug in the top to the bottom...

Other than that, nothing wrong with Thanksgiving. I usually go to my relatives house, but I'm working evening this year, so I get out of it. I usually just sit around and be there anyway.

Yeah, not bad when they don't play C-mas music before Thanksgiving.

off topic but speaking of snow, it's snowing here
