My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Happy Thanksgiving

Can we all just take a minute to appreciate the sadistic look on Spike's face?
Did I say Thursday for the mailbox? I meant Friday of course. I can't even get Grendel and his mom to come work the cafeteria on bank holidays. If I can't at least get hooked up with a Sloppy Turkey Joe and some powdered mashed potatoes, I'm not coming in to work.

Please have a wonderful holiday if you're a Yank, and a wonderful Thursday if you're not. Stuff a bird or just enjoy the stuffing, depending on what you're into. And I'll tell Holly why her fellow MFA students keep calling her "avant garde" tomorrow.

And I've been asked by the cheese guy on the third floor to convey his greetings in particular. He says, "What would go with Turkey better than some provolone? Happy Thanksgiving."  Yeah, I can't believe I actually agreed to that. But he was going to make me try this stinky Venezuelan beaver cheese if I didn't. I just wanted to get out of there.

I seem to be drifting slightly off the point. Have a wonderful holiday (or just day, depending), and we'll get busy with the snarky writing advice come tomorrow.


  1. I wanted to come up with something clever, but it turned out to be more work than I could be bothered with, so I'll just settled for saying that your Monty Python reference didn't go unnoticed.

    1. And, actually, having just re-watched that sketch, I realize how utterly appropriate that particular choice was for this particular post. The details hadn't dawned on the the first time around, but it's downright brilliant.

      No, I'm not being sarcastic. I mean it. That was bloody well done. It's so well done, I'm not even sure if you intended it that way, but I'll still give you credit for it. I'm going to go put on a hat, just so it can be off for you.

    2. I intend almost fully half of the things attributed to me. I'll let you conjecture which this was. :-p
