I have just had another Moment of Clarity with Black Ribbon--about seven pages' worth of background notes and a timeline I should have drawn up years ago, but there you are. I'm a little anxious about exactly how many years it would take to get a medical degree between 1870 and 1890, which is why I think I put off pinning down the exact years for so long. But honestly, until I made an attempt at it, a lot of things could not come together. And then I had two huge realizations and it was awesome.

So. Not to be smurfy about it, but: this is what I am thankful for. What are your plans for Turkeymas, if applicable?


(No, seriously, link me to the good ones.)

Three chickens.

Mashed potatoes.

Green beans.



My plans for Turkeymas involve sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, and NaNo.

Everything else is irrelevant.

Spending time with my adopted family, making some rosemary mashed yam potato things and NOT risking my life in Black Friday sales, thank you. And dragging my little brother along to mingle with said adopted family. ^^

Your icon!!! The best!!!!


I'm thankful that Thanksgiving is not at my damn house this year. I'm making three things. That is all. Not ALL THE THINGS! Just three.

Theatre Vegetarian Solidarity!

Compelled to comment because a) my family also does a giant and wonderful vegetarian Thanksgiving spread, b) I work in theatre, though c) my show extended so I'm having a misfits thanksgiving with a bunch of other techies.

All I know is that I'm in charge of the corn muffins and the green bean casserole.

As for Friday... I'm working from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Bath and Body Works. Dear sweet lord. O_O;;

Anyone else completely skip the football games and parade and watch the dog show?

Every year I hope Fred Willard will commentate as his "Best in Show" character, but I'm still waiting.

Also, "A Deep Fried Korean Thanksgiving." My poor father is surrounded by far too much estrogen.

I usually wake up for the tail end of the parade, but I love to watch the dog show. Football isn't my thing, but puppies definitely are. :D

Going to my parents', seeing the Assorted Siblings for the first time in months, eating lots of food, and doing lots of homework. Woo, Thanksgiving tradition. :P

Pissing off my mom, apparently, that I DARE to stay home and make dinner for my husband and son, and not drive to my grandmas for dinner for the 6th straight year. GAH.

Pie, Oreo Delight, and Jello made. Cinnamon apples, broccoli casserole, potatoes, gravy, stuffing, rolls to go. A star appearance by a beautiful organic, free-range, vegetarian fed turkey that I have faithfully brined. I'm so excited for this turkey I can't even tell you. It's now 11 pm. T-26 hours. I can't sleep. OH GOD WHAT HAVE I SIGNED UP FOR AGAIN?

I think we should really add that into regular vocabulary. Smurfy. It could be big. :)

Also, I dunno if you've seen "reasoning with vampires", but it's absolutely hilarious and this post made me think of you: http://reasoningwithvampires.tumblr.com/tagged/He%27s_like_a_child._GO_OUTSIDE_AND_PLAY%2C_EDWARD.

Aw, it says URL not found. I love that Tumblr, though. I like having it to point to when people ask me what I mean by "Stephenie Meyer is a terrible writer."

Black Friday sales? You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din. I'm staying as far away from the madness as I can get.

I'd be killed, probably. I think you need mad skillz and experience to survive that madness unscathed.

I can't even bring myself to look at Black Friday sales stuff, because I am BITTER. I live in Tuscaloosa, ON THE GAME ROUTE, and will *literally* be unable to leave my house due to Iron Bowl traffic.

And it's also my flippin' BIRTHDAY.

Thanks, universe. Really. You're a peach.

One of the things I am thankful for this year is that I no longer live in Tuscaloosa and will not have to deal with the Iron Bowl clusterfuck. Amen.

I'll be roasting a turkey that has just gone into the brine. Gravy will be made; stuffing and mashed 'taters. Mmmmm

About the doctor thing =
specifically: Professional doctorates originated in the United States, with the introduction of the MD at Columbia University in 1767,[9] or almost 100 years before a research doctorate (that is, a PhD) was awarded in that country, at Yale in 1861.[10] The JD was introduced in 1870, just a few years after the PhD.[11]

and a truly excellent PDF on the English system at:

Thank you so much! The English system's what I'm looking at.

I already had my big Turkeymas on Sunday with my mentoring group (~20 people and every Thanksgiving dish imaginable, including a giant turkey cooked by me), so tomorrow is the usual quiet Thanksgiving with just me and my parents and our traditional Movie Completely Inappropriate For The Holiday.
