Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Take a moment for some gratitude; going forward, may we try to be more considerate of each other.
I’ve pretty much given up on Black Friday. (and I don’t shop on Thanksgiving; nope). But – Small Business Saturday! (and contrary to how much American Express has been promoting it, per the link there and sure, they pretty much started it, it’s not like you really need your American Express card for Small Business Saturday (Wikipedia link)).
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) update: I’m still at it. At the moment, I’m at 44256 words. It’s basically a re-write/revision of my last year’s story, with the gimmicky idea of doing the story through various points of view except the protagonist, the Batman-like character. I’ve had bouts of writer’s block, including this afternoon, since I didn’t plan this out properly at all (thus undermining the concept of revisioning). Oh well. 50k words, here I come! We’ll see how I resolve this story this time.
FC mentioned brine for turkey over on Facebook. I manage to just think about side dishes and not going into a food coma.
In the meantime, here are links to some triscribe Thanksgivings past:
Thanksgiving 2014 (where I closed with this thought: “Don’t overeat, watch the parade, and some football. But, take a moment to be grateful for what we have; we are all luckier than we may think we are.”)
Thanksgiving 2011 (which has more links to past triscribe Thanksgiving links)
