Thanks Givings

This time of year is all about the meal. And giving thanks. For the meal.

Now I lay me down to eat:
I prey upon the turkey meat.
Stuffing follows in its wake,
Buried in a gravy lake.

Now I lay me down to rest,
After some more chicken breast.
If I shall die before I wake,
I won’t regret this food I take.


With Thanksgiving comes the giving of thanks. Just like the word says. And there are so many things that I’m thankful for:

  • Turkey: I’m thankful for only having to cook that beast once a year. It’s big, it’s awkward, it never cooks quite right, and it’s the least interesting thing on the plate. But it has to be there, like traffic on a highway as soon as you enter it, or like regrets at a wedding.

Android and comedy. Not necessarily in that order.
