It’s that time of year again…time to eat, be merry, express all that you’re thankful for – then shop ’til you drop. This year, all my shopping will be done online and my family will all know what they’re getting because they told me what they want beforehand.

My family and I have an understanding — I’m too old and jaded for that ‘just surprise me‘ crap and they all know it (read: I’ll surprise their happy asses with nothing). Well, that’s not entirely true – I’ll surprise my nephew because he’s still young and believes in Santa.

So anyway, to all of you out there, I wish you a happy, wonderful, merry, joyous Thanksgiving if you celebrate it.
