Thank You

Here we are again - Thanksgiving.

I always seem to be odd man out on this one, but mostly because of the food.  I've said it before, I find the meal to be boring and uneventful.....and usually monochromatic.

Most everyone else seems to love it. And it's not like I haven't tried. I've made fancy stuffing - with apples and such. I mean I grew up on Pepperidge Farm, out of the bag, so me making it was a big deal. It was fine and all, but that's it.........fine.

And you can deep fry them, brine them or stuff them with a duck and chicken, but turkey is just a boring bird.

Still, I get the spirit of the day and it's hard to argue with, but I'm never thrilled to have to go around the table to express your thanks. I save that for 710 and myself, not so much for saying in front of even my family.

As for the day after, I'm "supposed" to be off, but the way this work week kicked my ass, I don't doubt I'll have to put in a few hours - and now I probably have to travel on Sunday out to California....again. Yes, hit an airport on a holiday weekend.  Shoot me.

That, I am not thankful for.

And no way in hell am I hitting any store this weekend. If I'm going to go somewhere teeming with people, why not just hit the airport? It can't be any worse.

No, we have two movies to see. I know, right?  I can knock out all 12 before December even rolls around. At least in theory. This trip might push something back but there isn't much I can do about that.

But for blog stuff - of course there are 'thanks' to be given:  thanks to all who keep stopping by here and putting up with my daily crap or humouring me. And to the folks who link to me and comment. It is all appreciated.

Without you, I'm nothing.

Ok - that might be a little heavy-handed, but you get the drift.

I hope you all enjoy the day.

hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.

We got to 2 movies this weekend. Both were packed and the other movies showing seemed to be about the same. I don't love crowds but always like seeing movies when there are good audiences.

Hopefully you at least had a restful day, and was able to stay away from people. That's what I did. And what I'm truly thankful for.
