Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you're having a great day celebrating just the way you want to. I've got 21 people at my house today. Not to worry, I won't be punching anyone today - I don't think. Lucky for me, my family pitches in and everyone brings food to share and no one drinks any thing stronger than Diet Coke so I don't have a drunk uncle telling me that Obama is sending us down the shitter. We watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (starring that pesky Elf this year), Disney movies, play board games, eat pie and more pie, get the damn Elf out and start Christmas. Really. You can't make this stuff up.
Today I just wanted to let all of you know how thankful I am for each and every one of YOU. Exactly one year ago at this time I was excited if I got 300 pageviews a day on this blog. I won't bore you with my stats nowadays, but let's just say I get a lot more now. A. LOT. I am so thankful that you found me and that we get along so well. I am living my dream thanks to all of you.
I wanted to share some holiday-themed posts I've enjoyed this week:

And finally, the amazing Drew Magary at Deadspin wrote such a hilarious Haters Guide to the Williams-Sonoma Catalog that I'm green with jealousy that I had not written it first. It's inspiring. Truly.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone and don't forget to move that little bastard tonight!
