It's Thanksgiving, a floating holiday, floating because it's not a specific date, it's a day.
The dogs are playing downstairs. In case you're wondering, yes, Big Seig has taken off a few pounds and is much more active.
Thankfully, I am going to my sister's today. My nephew and his girlfriend are going to be there. I will have to act surprised because they're going to tell me they're expecting their second child. I will do this. I will eat, smile, and chat for about an hour and a half and then leave. No, we do not gather for hours and talk football. I had a couple of glasses of wine last night so I'll stay dry.
I started watching "The Haunting of Hill House" last evening. It's good, though I'm still waiting for either Michael Huisman or Oliver Jackson-Cohen, or both, to start taking off their clothes. I have a funny feeling that isn't going to happen.
And finally, on this great Thanksgiving day, I have a little statistic which causes Crazy Christian Conservative Republicans to burst into tears. This past midterm election? Even though the counting is still continuing, and Democrats keep racking of both state and national seats, the vote was overwhelmingly Anti-Idiot Jerk in the White House, Yeah... (this should put a shine on your Thanksgiving) by about 8.6 million votes. The last time the popular vote swung so wildly to the left was in 1974... in the the mid-term right after Nixon resigned. Back then the total was around 8.7 million voters. There's a good possibility we will meet and surpass that 1974 number.
