Hello, American friends, I miss you.
However, in the grand tradition of today’s festival, I am watching NFL on TV, and I am thinking about what I am thankful for.
The list is pretty short, because the latter part of this year has been spectacularly shit. I am, however, still alive, still healthy, and Kevin still loves me. I try to remember these things in amongst all of the family drama, fannish drama, VAT rule changes and other things that are keeping me awake at night.
Short term, however, I am particularly grateful for one thing: I have a copy of Guardians of the Galaxy on Blu Ray, and I am going to watch it tonight. It is, I suspect, pure escapism, but it is funny, and has a kick-ass sound track. It also has Rocket, and Groot. That’s just what I need right now.
