Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Food, family, friends, and all without the stress of gift-giving (yo Christmas, what up). But I usually take very little time to actually be thankful for anything, so here’s a brief rundown in no particular order.
1. Friends who come over for Thanksgiving and bring good eats and the Last Airbender. (The series, not movie. I’m now addicted.)
2. Having a solid, steady job. I can’t even express how thankful I am for this, that given the economy of the past few years I’ve been employed. And at a good place. I’m so lucky.
3. The Wash to my Zoe. Love him.
4. My warm and cozy apartment, now complete with Christmas tree. This year’s Christmas tree topping is the kitty Santa hat that was on my cat for about 2 seconds (right before she went for my throat).
5. My friends and family, who love me and support me in my weirdness and my writing.
And now, Christmas! Hi ho hi ho.
Time for my favorite holiday! This year’s Thanksgiving in Gracetopia will feature some vegan and vegetarian dishes, which is new and exciting, and probably some spaceship movies.
The internet is broken in Gracetopia. Occasionally (ie like now) I can gank it from the guys downstairs, but, basically—I have no access to the webernets except for my phone and a few minutes at work (which uh doesn’t involve blogging 0bv).
And Comcast is being a bitch about fixing it. Shock.
So. Who knows when I’ll be back for real. I miss you, interwebernets.
From io9, a group of RISD students draw Lovecraftian monsters. My fave was by Will Martinez:
Because there aren’t enough blog posts about NaNoWriMo right now.
You may recall that I’m cheating this year, using the energy of November to push me over the hump and finish my in-process novel. So far? I’ve clarified some of my ideas, but I haven’t gotten a lot of writing done. Some, not a lot. I’m now in a hard-to-finish section, which I’m thinking I will probably just skip and come back to. Haphazard writing method for the win.
On the off-chance anyone stumbles across this blog who’s doing NaNo in the Boston area, you can find me at some of the write-ins. I’m the… nutty one? You’ll find me. I’m hard to miss.
