B- A Mom, a Blog and the Life In-Between has a problem with Thanksgiving.
It sounds like I dislike the holiday, but that's not the case. I'm just not impressed by it; I don't see the point to designating one day in the year to go into gratitude overdrive. It's a bit much to swallow all this when it feels like most people are putting on a show. And I see the other spin to this, that it's just a moment to express thankfulness for everyone and everything in our lives, to take a break from daily troubles and self-absorption, to - even if just for a day - not be neglectful of the things that matter most.C- A prominent Republican gets convicted of money laundering on Thanksgiving Eve...now THAT'S some sweet justice! The Reid Report and Bark Bark Woof Woof some commentary.
But it's that very notion that depresses me, that it takes a specially designated day for us to pause and reflect; pause and feel humble; pause and stand in astonishment that despite all our problems, we are loved and lucky in ways that so many lack. And for me, that just sucks.
D- Beached Miami was at the '80's Prom Party at Vagabond last night and has the pictures to prove it.
E- Some Blogging Guy posts A Blogger's Thanksgiving List and mentions SFDB so...you know.
