December 2 Restaurant moment. Share the best restaurant experience you had this year. Who was there? What made it amazing? What taste stands out in your mind?
Going to the Red Mango Grill in Phelan, CA. It is a super small town and the red Mango is the nicest restaurant there. They have yummy sushi and great “mango chicken”. We meet my parents there every once in a while.
December 3 Article. What's an article that you read that blew you away? That you shared with all your friends. That you Delicious'd and reference throughout the year.
Reading about Somalia in National Geographic in the September 2009 issue. It makes me thankful for what we have, angry with our leaders for doing nothing USEFUL about it, and upset that we all too easily forget about those who have less while we are in pursuit of more more more. I think of going overseas to do work in nations like that but I am torn because I also have a family that needs me.
December 4 Book. What book – fiction or non – touched you? Where were you when you read it? Have you bought and given away multiple copies?
“Common Sense” by Glenn Beck. Seriously awesome. Do I agree with everything he says? No. But he has got a point–people just depend on the government to solve all their problems and look at this mess we're in. I remember people saying that “they” would not let all these people lose their homes if interest rates went up. Well, it happened and “they” are throwing OUR tax money at it and it isn't helping at all, just ruining the future for everyone. What was that? Taxation without representation? Why do all the losers and people who make bad choices get to determine what happens to the rest of us? People really need to pull their head out their you know what and get a civics lesson. Be responsible. And yes, the book has been passed on ;)

I am thinking of turning this into a mini book or a couple of pages at the end of my 2009 album. Gotta keep it scrappy!
