Happy Thanksgiving!


some babble and good wishes   

Good morning!

And a very Happy Thanksgiving to all on my f-flist who are in the states, may your turkey (tofu or bird) be tender, your spirits (alcoholic or metaphysical) be high and your football team victorious!

And to all my non states dwelling f-list, I raise a glass of the grape (juice, not wine it’s only 9am, but it’s metaphorical wine… cause it’s grape juice)  and a hope for peace and pleasure to you and yours. 

Some notes, I have to back out of BB again. I don’t want too, but my work schedule isn’t slowing down and it’s going to be hectic through the new year and frankly the show is sabotaging it., in a good way, but I don’t have the energy to keep up right now.

Can’t wait for next week’s House and the week after, the string of excellent episodes we’ve had has been a godsend in I have something besides work to focus on. So I’m thankful for that too. I’ve started watching Torchwood, and so far I quite like it. If only the DVD’s I got from the library would stop freezing every ten seconds.

Today going to Mom’s so she can be thankful that I’m there and help her clean her blinds (and force her to watch torchwood). And then she and I will be meeting my brother for dinner at The Crows Nest, which is a tradition. Mom doesn’t like cooking to big special occasion meals in less than a month anymore and we’ve found going out and taking the work out of it has contributed a lot to family harmony. Plus the view is amazing and you can see the sea otters and seals lazing about some times.

Sorry to hear you're dropping out of bigbang. But hey, if you don't have time, you don't have time. Maybe next year!

I would have no idea it was Thanksgiving at all if it wasn't for my f-list, it means so little over here. Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving!

I love it (the crows nest). The nice thing is they have the regular menu so if you want pasta for thanksgiving you can have pasta and if you want something other than pumpkin pie for desert you can have a chocolate cherry volcano cake (can you tell what I'm looking forward too?)

I'm sorry to hear that, though I (obviously) understand what you mean. I hope that doesn't mean you're going to stop writing "theirs" though. I really love what you have so far. It's turning into a really special fic.

It's fun, torchwood, so far I've only seen two episodes. right now it feels like a strange but entertaining mix of the x-files crossed with Dr. Who and a dash of the flying dutchman.

Hope you and grace have a great thanksgiving!

well one of the things the Pilgrims were thankful for was getting out of england (silly Pilgrims) I can see why the holiday wouldn't catch on over there. ;)

I somehow missed this yesterday...

It bites that you're dropping out of BB, but you have to do what you have to do. I just hope we see your intended fic whenever you have the time.

PS Happy (belated) Thanksgiving!

Thank you! A belated happy thanksgiving to you too. :)

I'm disappointed with myself, but the truth is, while it's true I don't have time or energy to be creative right now, the biggest problem was the show itself.

I like my idea, but it played a lot with "Rolls" and the show is doing some intriguing stuff with House, Cuddy and Wilsons "rolls" at the moment that would make what I wanted to do not so much AU as OOC, while I could handle AU, OOC makes me cringe (I know I've done it before, but never to the extent this would now require)

So I'm back burnering it until I see how things play out. Going to work on some shorter stuff, maybe try a drabble or two, once I can call my life my own again (which will probably be sometime in february)

Sorry to ramble :) Looking forward to what shakes out with the new thing you were talking about (which I won't mention in detail, else I get barred before it even exists)

There's so much going on with House and Cuddy right now, that's I think a lot of the reason why BLP has slowed down so much for me. It's not a conscious decision I made, but I think I was a little afraid of writing something the show was within weeks of covering.

After seeing how things shake out on screen, there will be time to reassess, and hopefully that will mean good things for both of our stories.

February seems like a long way off, but I can be patient when I absolutely must. ;)
