Happy Thanksgiving!

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:

Let Me Start By Saying - 12 Holiday Photo Card Tips

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!

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful that I discovered that you read my blog when you wrote about me that 1st time last Spring, and that you really do support people you believe in.
And that I could totally breastfeed you. Because it makes me laugh.

My Mommie spent a holiday season actually WORKING at Williams-Sonoma! If you think the people who buy their stuff are a bunch of pricks, wait until you meet the people who WORK there!

She will never forget how NOBODY could switch a day off for her so she could make a court date - they were all far too busy prepping for the holidays on their day off! - but she was Miss Popularity when people discovered that she was the one employee who managed to get Christmas Eve off by virtue of the fact it fell on her regular day off! When she refused, the other employees all called her inconsiderate of others' schedules, and asked the Manager to DEMAND that she switch days!

The one good part about the job? The 40% discount on all of the overpriced crap they sold. Those pumpkin tureens could have been hers for only $24, if she cared to own them.

I don't know about you ladies, but as I get older I'm finding that a lot of things are .... changing. My laugh lines aren't...
