Second Thanksgiving

Started off a sunny day with corn meal mush, an orange, and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Twilight Sparkle discovers just how magical it is in the two-part episode "The Cutie Re-Mark." Starlight Glimmer of the episode with the mark-less ponies goes back in time to stop Rainbow Dash from creating the Sonic Rainboom that what was allowed the Mane Six to get their powers all at once. Twilight Sparkle and Spike follow her to try to stop her. Each time, they fail, and they return to a present that grows progressively worse...until Twilight Sparkle finally stops and asks why Starlight Glimmer is doing this. The duo learn that, while we can't really change the past, we can keep making friends in our present...and preserve our future.

Work was...once again, very boring. I stayed outside all day rounding up carts, and there wasn't even all that much to do out there. I probably should have gone inside, but it was just too nice. It was in the 60's, very windy, but sunny and warm.

Ran into Jodie later in the day. She invited me over to hers and Dad's house for turkey breast later in the evening. Why not? My only dinner plans were leftovers.

When I got home, I worked on writing. Captain Hera Sylendulla reveals that Lothal is a rural village, populated mainly by fisher-folk, artists, and farmers. They're also quite poor and are hoping the Artists' Festival will bring in some profit. The new factory on the edge of town hasn't been helping - the profits go in the owner's laps, not in people's bank accounts.

I've added a few more Pinterest pages of late. "A Little Dose of Humor" is just that - wittisisms, gags, puns, comics, and other items to make you laugh. I also created boards for my favorite non-musical movies, past and present, for steampunk ideas, and for beloved Classic Comedians of the 30's, 40's, and 50's.

Started out to Dad and Jodie's around 6:30. Jodie, Dad, Dana, and one of their neighbors were already eating when I arrived. We had turkey breast, steamed baby carrots, stuffing, roasted red potatoes, and pop-can croissants for dinner. Yum, yum. The turkey was especially moist and flavorful. Watched Jeopardy! with Dad while the other three women talked.

(Oh, and Jodie did finally call the doctor. Now she's just hoping to hear back from him.)

Wanted to jump in the shower when I got home, but...there was no hot water. The shower just wouldn't heat up at all. Either it's broken, or Charlie uses up all the hot water at night. Probably doesn't even realizes he does it. I just took a cold shower.
