Hello, good morning, happy Thursday—and if you’re in the USA, Happy Thanksgiving. If you’re a turkey reading this, well, all I can say is, try to let some human know that not only can you read, but you can even use computers and get on the internet. If you do that, I doubt they’ll be inclined to eat you for a holiday celebration. To all other turkeys (who can’t read this) I guess I can only give a vain and rather hypocritical apology.
I won’t be writing much more today, since it is a holiday, and I’m already late for getting going with my day. I’ll also not be editing Unanimity today, but then again, I don’t usually do that on Thursdays. I once again haven’t yet written anything for IoZ this week, but I have a few more days after this. Holiday weeks are always peculiar and hectic at work, and they’re associated with even greater difficulties on the psychological level. But I won’t go into that; people rarely find it entertaining. It may not be quite as dire as trying to understand the workings of jokes*, but it’s rarely useful, and I suspect that even legitimate cries for help are passed off by most people as mere complaints or even dark humor.
C’est la vie. C’est la mort. C’est l’etat. C’est la guerre. C’est…le cirque volant des Monty Python.
You see what I mean?
Anyway, enough Tomfoolery**. I hope that all of you in the United States have a particularly good Thanksgiving, preferably spent with family and/or friends. And for everyone in the rest of the world, of course, please have a good—if ordinary—Thursday. And I hope you realize that you have at least one thing for which to be thankful: my blog is shorter than usual this week!
*The comparison is to the act of dissecting a frog: no one’s really that interested, and the frog dies.
**Do any of my readers know the etymology of that expression?
