NaBloPoMo Day 28: It's Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Today I'm thankful for conversations with a sleep talker. After my yoga lectures on Wednesday nights I often have a hard time winding down again. This is particularly hard on Inspector Climate who is tired and just wants to go to bed.

So after being quiet for a long time last night, I remembered that something that I felt like I had to tell Inspector Climate...which was "Oh, I put us on the no call list today" this is important because seriously we were getting SO MANY telemarketing calls during the day it was driving me absolutely INSANE.

Inspector Climate then muttered something that was complete gibberish and when I asked him to repeat it he said "You added yourself to the no-cuddle list?" and then I started giggling uncontrollably and he said "no, no I guess you didn't." The no cuddle list, it's Inspector Climate's worst nightmare!

Anyway, I also saw this thing from Crazy Shenanigans blog called Cliff Notes! Let's get to it:

I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that." Thanks John Cusack + Say Anything.
