The obligatory Thanksgiving message

  • by

Today Americans celebrate Thanksgiving, the day we reflect on the good things in life, express our gratitude for said things, and stuff ourselves with so much food we fall into a Tryptophan-induced coma.

I have much to be thankful for – a good wife, a home to live in, clothes on my back, food to eat. We have three dogs, who while they can be annoying, do love us. Major Tom is a little bipolar. If my wife goes over to pet him, he’s all tail wags and happy. If I go over to pet him, he growls at me, although he’s usually wagging his tail when he does it.

If you celebrate the day, I hope you had a day filled with family, food, and fun.

If you don’t celebrate the day, may you can celebrate Dr Who Day, which just so happens to fall today. On this day in 1963, Dr. Who, the longest running program in the world as far as I know, definitely the longest running sci-fi show, premiered on the BBC. It follows the adventures of a renegade Timelord who runs around in a ship capable of traversing space and time, and due to a faulty chameleon circuit is stuck looking like a public police call box. He ends up picking up various companions over the years, and usually manages to save the world (if not the Universe) by the end of each storyline.

If you don’t celebrate either day, well, I hope you had a good day anyway.

If you liked this look into the way my mind works, why not buy me a chocolate chip cookie through my Ko-Fi page? I’d be grateful for it.
