Erm. Turkey.

I always have mixed feelings about the tradition of Thanksgiving. The day itself is a pretty good thing. A reason to gather together with people you care about, family or otherwise, to eat good food and share good company. My feelings about the tradition itself...well, here we celebrate the memory of one group of people helping another group of people, and subsequently getting stomped out of existence by first group of people. Ah. Damn. I love my species.

So, screw the Pilgrims. Today I am thankful for people who love me. I'm thankful for the interesting and amusing people I know in real life and online. I'm thankful for finally figuring out what I want to do with my life. I'm thankful that my hair surprisingly does not look like a briar patch today. And I'm thankful that El Jefe's mother gives us leftovers, for yea verily, I have four cats and they can smell the turkey on my breath when I come home.

I love you guys. ;-)
