It's "Thanksgiving" here now, and people are heading home over the weekend. Apparently the tradition is to sit around the dinner table with your family, gaze at a cooked turkey with greedy eyes, and wait for your turn in sharing with family members what you feel thankful for. What a typically submissive Christian ritual!

Why not be a bit bolder and have something like "Thanksdemanding", where everyone gets to complain about how ungrateful and sleazy the world happens to be?

I think I'll just be staying here (almost) alone in Watson Hall over the weekend, although I have been invited to a family dinner in Toronto. I somehow don't feel like going through the hassle of finding my way to Toronto and back. Maybe I'll just find someone to get drunk with instead.
