So, everyone I know has been making fun of me for taking my new girl to the buffet for Thanksgiving. However, I have to say that we had the greatest time at Golden Corral yesterday. There was such a great vibe there. Everyone was smiling and telling each other "Happy Thanksgiving". We made friends with the table beside us and talked to them for a long time. We ended up staying there for three hours, just talking, laughing, drinking coffee and generally being completely enamored by one another. We then went back to her place for a little *ahem - well you know... Around 8:30, we went to one of our mutual friend's house to watch the Colts game. Except for the fact that someone had backed into my car and didn't leave a note (discovered this as we were leaving the friend's house), it was a perfect Thanksgiving. Definitely different than any I had ever had, but very, very good.
