Happy Thanksgiv-a-fuck

Once upon a time, Thanksgiving was my favorite holiday. Family spent the day (or weekend) together, not really doing much, other than eating and enjoying each other's company. Or is that just a childhood memory? Whatever. It isn't my Thanksgiving any more.

Like a lot of families, we go around the table and tell each other what we're thankful for. This year, I was sorely tempted to say:
I'm thankful for a family that never misses an opportunity to tell me that I'm a piece of shit, worthless human being. I'm thankful for a family that can find a way to blame me for everything and that can never accept responsibility for anything. I'm thankful for a family that expects me to do everything for everyone but who can rarely lift a finger or offer a kind word for me. I'm thankful for a family that is so preoccupied in their own importance that they can't be bothered to see the pain that I'm feeling or to even notice me sitting in my car crying. Again.
But I didn't. I just said that I'm thankful for all of the wonderful people in my life. And I nearly choked on my turkey. Thankfully there was much wine.

Spam Spam ... Not Spam!

It appears that over the last few weeks, Gmail has been directing all comments on this blog to my spam folder. I really apologize for my lack of responses to those comments, but I guess it's hard to respond to a comment that you don't see. You'd think that Gmail (owned by Google) would know how to properly deal with comments to Blogger blogs, given that Blogger is also owned by Gmail.


Anyway, thanks to all of you for the comments, both those that were supportive of me when I was feeling particularly down and those that show appreciation for the captions that I post. And I just love when people manage to capture and use the same sense of snark that imbues so many of my captions.

New Uniforms for Starfleet

Another one of those captions that I'm not really happy with. Don't be surprised if this image is used again with a different caption.
