Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

That's great, David!

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

Instead of nursing a Bummed Out Hangover, I feel energized and connected.

I mean this 100% sincerely: I love seeing my extroverts get the energizing people-time they need, especially because the pandemic has drastically curtailed that out of necessity.

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

Echoing Steph. I mean, I barely recognize stay-at-home precautions they're so like my everyday. Except for the part where now I'm told I can't I want to, like a cat. Or a two-year-old.

But StY is suffering--he's such an extrovert, quarrantine's been really hard on him.

So David, I'm glad you had lovely weather and companionship on your Thanksgiving Dinner Delivery Drive yesterday. And a feast at home to enjoy.

I have a whole pumpkin pie, plus a bit left of the first one. I should have pumpkin pie for breakfast. Thanks for the tip!

especially because the pandemic has drastically curtailed that out of necessity.

I had a whole ecosystem of baristas, bartenders, comicbook/bookstore/record clerks that I never see anymore. Not to mention the parents of Matilda's friends that I'd formed friendships with. And those are just my supplemental vitamins for a healthy extrovert diet.

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

This was the route we took. Let's see if I can put this Google link in: [link]

It worked!

You basically had a mini road trip, with bonus food delivery! Sounds like a great way to spend Thanksgiving.

Typically in SF traffic across three bridges that would have taken like 5 hours, most of it bumper to bumper. Instead we did the whole thing in 2 hours with gorgeous weather and views on the bridges. Plus we got to see everybody! And listen to Van Morrison.

And since I gave Emmett two bottles of wine and a bottle of champagne with his food, he was feeling quite cheery by the time of the Zoom call that night.

That does sound like a perfect day, David.

Seriously, with my station at the polls being the front door I had hellos and goodbyes to a couple hundred people. It was blissful and satisfying for this people person. And quite a number of them were chatty too!

Ha! That type of headline and his appointed judges turning him away left and right are quite the delight. I honestly didn't think he could act like such a fool of a sore loser though. I don't know whether he says all these ridiculous things because he thinks his cult likes to hear it or if he is in such a bubble he believes it. I think the former. It is likely he thought his judges would be "loyal". Can't fire lifetime appointments, dude.

I am losing the battle of making my PC to recognize the new webcam (or truly, almost any other usb I'm trying to connect). How's your Saturday going?
