Mayflower

Turkey day ...

I keep thinking there should be some cultish significance to Thanksgiving for us Mayflower Society spawn ... I mean, we should be gathering in secret at 3am in the basement of Sears to do the Jambi chant from PeeWee's Playhouse and indulge in secret handshakes or something.

I suppose we should just be thankful that most of us have ceased to be rabid fundamentalists!

Even better ... there should be a special post-Thanksgiving sales tax (nothing confiscatory, 1/10 of 1% nationwide would be fine) on all commercial transactions from Thanksgiving through the weekend that would go to Society of Mayflower Descendants types, providing us with lavish holidays! Of course, I suspect that A.I.M., etc., would prefer some other distribution of said funds.

Oh, well ... this year's going to be crappy one way or the other, I suppose that rather than mentally struggling between a glass that's half empty or half full, I should just be thankful that the glass isn't shattered and digging into my face ... although most days it sort of feels that way.
