Just Another (Thanksgiving) Day

Hey everybody. How are you all doing? I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving as we start the holiday season.

I hope most of you have managed to get the day off or at least some time off to enjoy the day with friends and family. If you’re like me, this is just like any other day except traffic was superb. I luckily have the day-shift and will be home for dinner. I’ll be joining my wife and kids and some friends, once I get off of work, for dinner. I know, call me lucky. Better yet, call me thankful because it has not always been that way.

For some of us, myself and Jim included, the rest of our family – parents, brothers, sisters, or spouses…our loved ones – are in another city, state, or country. It’s hard.

Thankfully, yesterday the fine man at Q2Q Comics, Steve Younkins, put out this little single panel comic for us all. It reminds us that there are plenty of us in the same situation, and they’re probably sitting in the same venue you are now.

Now, take the time to put aside your workplace problems with each other, and be thankful that you have the company, the income, the warm place to be, and a whole bunch of strangers coming your way to enjoy your work – even if they don’t see it that way.

Now, go unto the people and make the day awesome!

In Canada, We Work On American Thanksgiving!

For the first time in my life, Thanksgiving Day did not consist of turkey, stuffing, cranberry whatever, and pumpkin pie.  Know why?  American Thanksgiving 2012 is on Thursday, November 22, 2012; Canadian Thanksgiving was on October 8, 2012!  Ah, the sweet buzz of tryptophan.  Good times.

For those of you who had to work today too, let’s have a laugh!

Happy Thanksgiving, America!  I hope it was awesome!

Welcome Back, Post Turkey Day!

Good Morning!

I hope that all of JimOnLight’s readers had a great Thanksgiving, or at least had some good food over the holiday.  It doesn’t have to be turkey, of course…

Did you do something outrageous over the holiday?  My wife and I moved across town on Wednesday, and spent a majority of Thanksgiving day cleaning the old place and unpacking.  Were you on a cool gig, or did you work on something awesome?  Post in the comments!

Off-Light-Topic: Turkey Recipe

Prepare for Turkey Day – if you have a recipe that rocks the casbah, then obviously don’t change it!  However, if you’re looking for something awesome, check out Elise’s recipe for Roast Turkey.  Elise runs one of my most favorite non-lighting blogs, Simply Recipes.  She puts so much awesome stuff on there, and all of it looks good, all the time.

Thanks for the recipe, Elise!
