Sweating and swearing and inebriation
Destroying a city and its reputation
Sanity tenuously held by a string
These are a few of my favorite things.
OH AND ALSO CRACK I FUCKING LOVE CRACK.
I don't do Black Friday shopping as a general rule, at least not in stores. I have very little patience for crowds and try not to go out during peak shopping hours at any time of the year, so Black Friday is my idea of hell. But I'd saved up for this dress for my friend's wedding and I scored 30% off, which was enough to let me go shop the Body Shop's online 3-for-$30 sale afterwards.
I was pleased, anyway.
Oh man, I am dying to live and work abroad (especially in SE Asia), but I just can't figure out how to make it happen. Great interview, glad these traveling/living abroad alone interviews are back!!

My brother asked me to be his best man/lady! I am really, really excited even though I'm going to be a disaster when I make my toast!!!
I'm also finally giving up on being a grump and trying to get into fall--hopefully going to the pumpkin patch and a harvest festival this weekend. And maybe drinking a maple latte.

For those brave few that are still interested in hearing about the Bergy Bits:
The girls got their first baby dolls (lil dude almost got one but decided to get a little dog instead). They were attentive mothers: changing diapers, bathing their babies, putting them to sleep - and later, using them to play catch.
The (increasingly less quiet) Quiet One: "See my butt?" lifts shirt, points to belly button.
Taught them how to do "This Guy / This Girl" (2 thumbs up, pointed at self). Also Peace Signs, which they now use almost interchangeably with "two" as in "Peace sign cookies!" means "I want 2 cookies!"

They are much bigger now; they were three months old in that pic, and that was three months ago. But they're still little and cute and the gray-and-white one fell into the toilet last night while prowling around the bathroom, his favorite place.
