Thing one: If you wanted to read my Geek in Review about So-Cal Gen Con, but didn't want to click through yesterday when it was NSFW, you're in luck! The newswire is currently SFW. Also, you can Digg it or 'scape it if you want.
Thing two: A lot of my friends are posting about things for which they are thankful today. I'd like to join the pile on, in the following fashion:
Anne and I drove to the store yesterday, to pick up some last minute things for today's Thanksgiving of Misfit Toys*.
As we crept through the slow-moving stream of holiday travelers who always manage to turn the streets around our home into the same sort of gridlock they left the freeway to avoid, Anne said, "You're awfully quiet. What are you thinking about?"
I said, "I can't believe I did this, but I gave Ryan full access to my comic book and graphic novel library. I hope it wasn't a bad idea."
She turned to look at me, and quite seriously said, "Why? Are they inappropriate for him to read?"
"No! They're my comic books! I gave him unfettered access to all of my comic books!"
She blinked twice. "Nerd."
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I hope you get to spend some time today with people you love.
* When the holidays come around, we invite our friends who don't have family in Los Angeles to our house to be part of our family for the day. We call it Misfit Toys after the Island of Misfit Toys.
