My left ear is ringing. I wish somebody would answer it.

As expected, Thanksgiving was rainy. I'm thankful that there was no snow. I'm also thankful that there's not going to be a huge mess to clean up in the kitchen. Frying a slice of ham is way less chore-making than baking a big chunk of it. Another thing I'm thankful for is that the furnace hasn't quit working. It's been making a clunking noise every time it goes on and off ever since the first time I used it after it got its annual service. Either the service guy did something wrong to it, or some part of it is about to break because it's around ten years old. I will not be thankful for any furnace failure.

I'm thankful that I didn't get a hernia lifting the Thanksgiving Day edition of the newspaper. I'm thankful I won't have to go out and buy any of the stuff in its hundreds of pages of advertising. I'm thankful that Portia is being such an excellent lap-warmer, even though her presence on my lap does mean I have to put my arms into an odd position when using the keyboard. I place a pretty high premium on having toasty thighs.

Also, I'm thankful that LJ is not yet entirely deserted. It's nice to hear about all those turkeys being consumed, and know that I didn't have to eat any of them. Happy digestion to all!

    I don't recall the exact hour, but it was well before midnight Monday, when I felt the sudden need for a nap. I expected it to last until perhaps two…
