Up here in the land of not so much ice and snow, thanksgiving is cellebrated, uh, well, rather, this weekend. This monday, actually–but we’re doing it early-ish. It’s a thing May still has yet to get used to. You know, kind of like when I had a reason to need to get used to the US thanksgiving being close enough to kiss Christmas. If, like us, you’re cellebrating thanksgiving this weekend, have a good one. And, do remember two very key things. First, there can never, ever, ever be too much pumpkin pie. And second, I get dibs. Enjoy the weekend! Geekyness returns on Sunday or Monday. first up: Ottawa’s taxi laws need a swift kick.
Whatever it is you’re planning and whoever it involves, here’s hoping it all ends up a whole new kind of special. Whether it involves a larger than life party, or just an evening killing time, do it with a sjile today. And something alcoholic. But at least the smile. And for the love of chese, don’t do anything mock-worthy until boxing day. I don’t have time today to write about it.
To the American folks reading this today, happy giving of thanks to you. If you’ve got the day off, by all means enjoy the royal hell out of it. If you don’t, well, enjoy the royal hell out of the next day–you get to call in sick, or flake out on your scheduled day off, while everyone else gets slammed to the wall busy. For everyone else, mostly the people who don’t cellebrate Thanksgiving, happy little to no NHL activity day. Consider this a chance to allow your used and abused heart to recover from the last two months. Yes, Leafs fans, sadly I’m mostly talking to you. Take it easy, and remember, if I wouldn’t do it, it’s probably no fun.
That actual, content-filled update I promised a day or two is coming; just not right at this moment on account of in an hour, we’re gone for visits, then to stuff ourselves ’til we explode then stuff ourselves some more. In the meantime, happy thanksgiving for those of you reading this north of the 49th. Hope you’re doing the same today. For those of you on the other side, I hear tell it be Columbus day for you. Happy that. Catch you on the flip side, when this thing stops spinning somewhat chaoticly.
Whatever it is you cellebrate and whenever it is you cellebrate it, here’s hoping the holiday’s as good to you as it’s very likely to be for me. I look forward to seeing your continued readership of this still very much in development blog in 2010. Be responsible, be safe, and most of all, have a little fun. It’s what we’re here for. And remember, it may be happy holidays to you, but it’s merry Christmas to others. Let’s not get *too* politically correct here. That’s how good moods get ruined real fast.
