happy

Stoopid missing internets!

So those of you who answered my question about Thanksgiving the other day, telling me it's about consumerism and killing Indians, while you may be partly right if we were to look into the historical, social, and political events of the colonisation of the US - I think you're only looking at part of the picture. A lot of Americans chose not to answer that post because of the things that were written there, because they wanted to avoid a fight. But, face to face I managed to get a view of what Thanksgiving is about for people personally, and I have to say that as a holiday that I've never experienced before, I really like it.

And, first and foremost, it's definitely about food.

The only thing that was missing, apparently, was background football. So, next time we ought to arrange for several burly men in tight pants to run through the festivities chanting "Hup one hup two" on a regular basis. *nod*

Also, the zombie apocalypse arrangements continue..

For those of you who've been wondering where I was this morning, I have been in a concrete masonry factory looking at gigantic machines. Concrete masonry production wins at gigantic machines. Not so much with the interesting jobs though.

PS it can warm up now if it wants.

By the way, I'm guessing by the almost complete lack of LJ posts today that everyone else was without internet from about lunchtime till now?
