Close, but no cigar. You'll have to settle for a Christmas-loving godless heathen.

I am filled with sadness. I think I need a meat pie.

Just to be clear, I enjoy Christmas. I just don't need two months of it. Thanksgiving deserves to be recognized.

I know, it's like everyone ignores it. Most likely because there isn't much to sell that goes along with it. Any kind of shift to make Thanksgiving more marketable would be as transparent as Sweetest Day.

I have a lot to be thankful for, and I'm sad my family doesn't give a shit about this holiday.

And it seems we now take our cues from Walmart. Mother fuckers.

I'm writing a story about this. Predictably the main character will be a total skeezebag. No, it's not autobiographical, smartass.

Speaking of Walmart, I went to a Meijer for the first time the other day. It's kind of the same thing.

I'll have to show that nifty thing about the digital colouring and the traditional inking I learned the other day.

Thanksgiving is totally ace. How can you not love a day that pumpkin pie and yams are almost mandatory?

I can't think of anyway to make Thanksgiving more marketable. The best that can be done is Black Friday.

I wouldn't really want Thankgiving to be marketable. It's just the only reason I can think of as to why it's ignored by stores. I guess hearing Christmas music early reminds people to shop early and shop often.

No joke. At Michael's the other day I saw Thanksgiving colored pointsettas.

I suggest a salve of cranberry sauce and stuffing to make it feel better. Now back to procrastination.

Sounds good, but I've been stuffing myself with greasy food for a week, all I want now is cornflakes. I've been told it's the cure.

I had sukiyaki for the first time tonight, and it was pretty tasty.

Chipolte is good. I miss Sharky's Build Your own Burrito from when I lived in Amarillo, TX though. The had these really great roasted jalapeños.

As far as fast food goes, Chipotle is a good way to go. I could go for a nice Burrito Lincolnwood right now, though.
