Friday open thread – until the Return of the Khan should deem otherwise.

It’s yours….

Standard FYI clause: I generally wait about 2 hours after Ta-Nehisi would typically open a thread (roughly noon, EST, back when such a thing was typical…!), and if none is forthcoming, I put one up here.

    Is MoVember celebrated in the US? It is where amateurs grow mustaches to raise money for cancer.
    It is a worthy cause, but results in some awful Ron Howard style staches. Thankfully the amateurs will tomorrow go back to their proper state.
    Leave that sort of thing to the professionals.

    What is your least liked/most hated Christmas season or winter song?
    Me, I hate hate hate hate hate The Little Drummer Brat. Even the version by St Bing and St David.

    A small Christmas joke.
    At six the young child got up and opened all the presents.
    At eight, the downstairs neighbour appeared at the door, gave the urchin a jack-knife tied up with a bow and innocently asked if the child knew what was inside the drum that made such a big noise.

    I have a million things to do today, including getting ready for a job interview on Monday. So what do I do? Lock my keys in the car while it is running in front of the bank downtown. I am feeling … not so smart.
    (I did manage to get back into the car, eventually. I had to call my landlord and make sure they had spare keys, find a cab, go to the landlord and get into my apartment to get my extra keys, and take the cab back to the car. I was so worried it was going to be gone but, as my stepdad said, “Nobody can steal it! The keys are locked inside!”)

      AAA has a doohickey that will reach inside the door and spring the lock. In car thief world they call it a “slim jim”.

        I really need to join AAA. I looked around for police to see if anyone had one, but could not find a single cop. (I DID find an empty police station with no door!) Calling a mobile locksmith to come with their slim jim would have run me $120. Boo.

    Somehow, I got roped into eating lunch outside today. Have I mentioned it’s barely in the 40s here today?

    Horde, I am feeling seriously demoralized about everything today. I’m in one of those moods where I want to put all my stuff in storage or give it away and just bail. Take off for parts unknown until my money runs out. *sigh*

      Well, I live in RI. I’d get just across the state line.

  10. I’m leaving the house in 55 minutes to pick up a college friend so that we can go to the birthday party of two other college friends and I’m not packed and the car is a mess so…. I’m out!

    But I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH. If TNC opens a thread, please send everyone over there my love, too, okay? Okay.

    PS Of course, the student lounge is still yours. Just wash the coffee cups when you’re done.

      Woo hoo for parties with friends! One of the best parts of my Thanksgiving was spending an afternoon with two of my oldest and best friends. Nothing dramatic, just hanging out and talking and laughing together. It was truly wonderful.

      And I will make sure the coffee cups get washed and put away.

    It is supposed to rain all weekend and that is Just Fine By Me as I can sew and sew without interruption. Hopefully I didn’t just jinx myself. I won’t bore everyone with TOO many pictures on fb, but possibly 1 or 2.

    Hello. It dawned on me recently that I haven’t seen Andy Hall over at TNC’s in I don’t know how long. I assume he’s ok since his blog is up to date. Does anyone know why he hasn’t been around?
