Thanks Giving

I thought about delving into Thanksgivings Past, but that's rather unpleasant. Thanksgiving Present is much saner. I shun most traditions that are handed to me, and don't generally enjoy rituals made up by other people, so holidays have to have our own made-up traditions. We went to the Alamo Drafthouse, which is a movie theater with a full menu including booze. Mr. B had chips and queso with a couple of beers, I had a glass of wine and a veggie pizza (a generous personal-sized one). Thanksgiving is not "Eating Day" for me, and it's obviously not Turkey Day. We saw Casino Royale which was very good, and breaks a lot of the Bond-movie formula rules. I like Daniel Craig!

If it's a day to give thanks, I would thank Mr. B for being who he is, and for putting up with my quirks (they ain't goin' away!). I thank the people I do business with for trusting me to take care of things. I try to earn it. I thank all the musicians, artists, and artisans who have enriched my life with their gifts. I thank all those folks at the club entrances who believed I was who I said I was even if my name got left off the list. I thank these cats for being our "kids". I thank all the people who visit this blog regularly, and I look forward to your comments (except for the racist, that one can bugger off).

No "Black Friday" for us. We will go to Waterloo Records tomorrow and pick up the latest KGSR compilation (one to keep and one to give away), plus Loreena McKennitt has a new one out. Two cats have vet appointments in the afternoon, and late evening we are planning to spend at Momo's seeing Rob Socia Band and The Band of Heathens. The weather is ideal here, it will be 75-80 degrees most of the rest of the week.

While "Casino Royale" had a fresh take on the Bond Genre, it followed the Bond "Formula" to a tee, all the way down to one "Bond Girl" being good and the other being bad.
