"Happy Thanksgiving, Officer!"
This will go down in family history not only as the year I couldn't bring myself to buy and cook a turkey because we'd just seen Fast Food Nation, but as the year Eugenia "accidentally" dialed 9-1-1 on Thanksgiving morning, winning herself a little visit from Mr. Policeman. The little turkey! (Eugenia, not the policeman.) Gobble, gobble!
In other movie news, we just got back from watching Shut Up and Sing, a documentary about the political fall-out following Dixie Chick Natalie Maines's public disapproval of George W. Bush's decision to send troops into Iraq, and about the growth the Chicks experience in the months and years that follow, as artists, as friends and sisters, and as women learning to unapologetically find and use their voices. If you can possibly see this movie, do!
