Well, we here in the good old US of A just had our day off, and no doubt some of us are up to there in turkey and trimmings. Personally I’ve never been a big fan of the bird- I think I’d be more thankful if the Mayflower kids had done lobster or fettuccine carbonara, but that’s just me. I hung out at home being lazy, ate two Hot Pockets, re-read the latest Armisted Maupin “Tales” book and had a glass of water with a whisper of Trader Joe’s scotch (not bad stuff when mixed.)
I cannot say that this has been a banner year in my life- there have been changes that I would have preferred not to make. But on a day where we should examine our fortunes and give thanks for what we have, I can recognize that even with some reversals, I have been very much blessed. I have a job and a home and dear friends both “real” and “cyber” (I put that in quotes because in some cases it’s equally valid and many have crossed over.) I have my health and my hair. I even got to spend some time with Musette, Patty and March on the bus for our scent event and at Roscoe’s as well as most of a week the wonderful Portia- if you have the chance, import her to your hometown. I was amazed at how she would charm the most stony LA person into butter in her hand, including a notoriously flinty LA restauranteur.
I’m also thankful that due to my perfume twin, I still have a decent supply of Muscs Kublai Khan, which I am wearing this Thanksgiving evening. I can’t wear scent to the office, but at home all bets are off..
How was your Thanksgiving? For what did you give thanks? Most importantly, what did you eat? Let us know in the comments.
