I doubt many people are reading blog posts this week – too busy cooking, gathering family and friends together, and preparing for insane shopping adventures – but I wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone a spectacular Thanksgiving. The Rish family will be gathering at my parents’ house where my brother is going to cook his infamous (and super delicious) spiced turkey. I’m in charge of the dressing, which to everyone’s surprise I managed to pull off last year without burning down the kitchen. Fingers crossed for success two years in a row.
The one thing we will definitely not be doing? Shopping! None of us are really shoppers at the best of times, and with crowds willing to trample each other over a few dollars off, we’re going to give any place with a cash register a wide berth. Instead we’ll probably sit around in the same room not talking while we play Words with Friends with each other on our phones. Maybe I should see if I can track down a Scrabble board so there is some actual interaction? But it’s so much easier when the game automatically tells you if the random string of letters you put together really forms a word. :-)
In the meantime, here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales
for the week for you to enjoy as you stuff your turkey:
11/14 - The tomcat hectored
the kitten, batting him around. But with one swipe, the kitten drew blood. He hadn't been declawed. Or deballed.
11/15 - The star-chamber
rules for scaling the friend hierarchy to be Tia's BFF are so frustrating Pam decides it's more fun to be her enemy.
11/16 - He swore he was being facetious
when he said rivals would pay a lot for their code. His boss swore she wasn't joking when she fired him.
11/17 - All the ladies were atwitter when a pukka
royal visited their brothel. But the "lucky" girl he selected never came downstairs again.
11/18 - The king hurls foolish orders after the guards spot the enemy's anabasis
. Fed up with his idiocy, they push him across the drawbridge.
11/19 - After her showdown with the principal, 11 girls dye their hair pink. She'd only wanted to express herself, not gain a bunch of epigones
11/20 - Her mom's constant warnings to be chary
of strangers made Pam freeze around men. She thought it'd be better to meet one online. Poor Pam.
I’m thankful for so much this year, including having this silly little blog that has helped me meet some truly incredible people. Thank you for reading. Happy Thanksgiving!!
