Well it's Thanksgiving here in the US. My usual yearly plan was changed kind of at the last minute, and I decided that I'd do a hermit holiday. Thanksgiving is one of those holidays I have a ton of mixed feelings about, was very much a me and the parents holiday. After my uterine sibling got married and moved out, me and the folks stopped doing the traditional dinner in lieu of reservations at a place called 'The Milleridge Inn' out on Long Island. Even after we moved to Texas, it was still eating out most of the time. Even infected Amythest's clan with the idea a few years. But it always was a holiday that involved having spare tentacles ready, and anxiety meds. So when this year because a DIY event, I kind of ran with the idea of staying home. I did get several invites. (Thanks Strongbow and the Raptor Badger clan). But a day of tasty heat-and-eat meats and snacks sounded better. So here I'm hear with three different kinds of sausage, eggs, some chicken, bread, cheese and even a tiny (bad for me) lemon pie. I joked at the beginning about having Thanksgiving Ala Ancient Rome, and I really did kind of pull it off. No dormice, but I'm not the upper crust. First course is chicken soup, which isn't traditional Roman (They started every big meal with eggs, and ended with fruit. Thus the phrase 'Eggs to Apples' compared to our 'Soup to Nuts').
I'm wearing a tshirt I got with some of the famous man-eaters of horror
fiction around the thanksgiving table. Which set the movie theme for
today. Currently watching the 2nd of The Hills Have Eyes original flicks (I
watched the first before stating the post.) Later will be one of the
'Hannibal' series (at least), one or more of the 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'
flicks, 'Return of the Living Dead' and 'Day of the Dead', which covers
all the characters on my shirt, with the exception of a C.H.U.D., but I
recently watched that movie and it doesn't sound all that appealing to
rewatch. Plus he's hiding under the table, guess he's shy.
No real other plans for today, I have some stuff I'd like to get done
this weekend. New drive for Dagon, so I can do an fresh install of Ubuntu
18.10, but still be able to flip to the old drive in case of problem. I'm
also going to a friend's orphan shindig Saturday night. I'll only know
a couple of people there, but as I was told 'It's a gathering of introverts'
so things should be fine. Tomorrow there will be people in the office working
but I'll be staying at home, unless there's a crisis. The only leaving
of Château Innsmouth is maybe to go raid a Half Price Books or 3, they're
running a 20% everything sale. I also want to stop my an office supply
store for canned air, since it's been a dog's age since I cleaned out
Dagon. I want to also spend some time cleaning out clutter, I have access
to an SUV to haul things out with, so that will be helpful.
So that's my Thanksgiving in a nutshell. Cannibals, sausages, chilling out.
I do have to leave home for a little bit, critter care, but that's it.
Hope everyone is having a happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate, and a good
Thursday/Friday if you don't.
