Thanksgiving 'n' Stuff
I think I may have had the best Thanksgiving EVER. And it was all due to Rock Band. Lemme tell ya, there is nothing quite so sweet as hearing your husband sing along to "Sabotage" by the Beastie Boys. It's also extremely gratifying to put a microphone in your cleavage and sing while simultaneously playing bass guitar to "Roxanne" and "Should I Stay or Should I Go?" (I think that's what Sting would do if he were a woman). And then there's the feeling of togetherness that only comes when the entire family is playing along to the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" and your niece spontaneously breaks out a triangle and starts banging away. This year, as we all gathered around the Nintendo Wii, I really felt grateful for the people who conceived of Rock Band, the awesomest game of all time, dude. The awesomest.
