and yes I am thankful for stuff.
But Thanksgiving is always a weird day for me. Go to dinner, eat, ruminate, have fun with fam, go home.
Then what? Generally, there is no one to hang out with because people don't hang out on holidays. There's always the movies, but I refuse to pay for a movie ticket when I have so much cable at home.
In the past, stores were shut tight. Closed up. Everyone home enjoying or fighting with their families. One would think that the people who fight with the family would lobby for the store to be open so they would not have to spend it with the family. Whatever.
This year, I think some stores around here are open. Weird. Is that because the fighters got their way? Or is it because the economy is so bad, the store needs the extra 12 hours to try to pluck money from us we don't have?
At any rate, I'm going to dinner at Mum's. When I get home, I may watch all 10 episodes of Boardwalk Empire on onDemand. In a row. Without stopping.
Oh, I may stop for a turkey sandwich...
