    I really don't like thanksgiving food... I have the misfortune of being a midwesterner who doesn't like casseroles, which is apparently an anomaly or something I also don't like turkey, stuffing or sweet potatoes!

    I am thankful that thanksgiving only comes once a year!

    I'm also quite glad that vegetable trays were invented because they're the best

    and for sweaters... I love sweaters

    I dunno. I think most people are more into holidays than I am. My family wasn't really into cooking or entertaining when I was a kid. We just did whatever my mom felt like doing that day. For our extended family Christmas dinner we had relish plates, cold cuts, and cheese and crackers at Grandma's apartment. I didn't know people made turkeys and stuff, so the idea that you have to do that is kind of foreign to me, but I'm intellectually aware that I'm the weird one, so I play along most of the time.

    My husband cooks a delicious turkey, which helps a lot.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    I'm thankful for a lot of things, I used to track between three and five things I was grateful for everyday in a journal but it became infrequent and finally I stopped, I was just listing the same things over and over again really.

    If you've got good health and good friends you're pretty much blessed. If you feel love or are in love there's that too. And books, good books are something to be thankful for too and my room is literally stacked to the roof with them.

    I'm thankful that despite my society's highly individualistic character I and the ones I love habe been able to work toward maintaining membership in distinct communities both within family and church where we are not just groups of people who spend time together, but actually form bonds by depending on each other in times of weakness and need.

    Also, tasty venison and turkey.
