    One very good thing about a zoom thanksgiving is you can’t tell if someone has gas problem.

    I HATE Zoom. I was supposed to attend two different events, last month, and no one sent me a link. Waiting for a link to a major wedding that never shows up stinks.

    No squash for me. I like it, but it has to be sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving.

    I had my Thanksgiving on Sunday. I had an amazing turkey breast, fresh from the farm, with onion gravy stuffing and sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie with tons of whipped cream.

    My family here in the States is very small (just me, my mom, and my brother; everyone else is in England) so we’ve never done Huge Dramatic Complicated Busy Thanksgiving events anyway. Take it easy this year, everyone.

    Almost very time I have a doctor’s appointment, it is by Zoom, and everyrime, I have to explain that yes, I know Zoom, and quite well. In fact I have a range of backgrounds. Like several versions of the TARDIS, the living room from The Big Bang Series, and the Simpsons.

    In the year 2525, if people are still alive

    If cats can survive, we may find

    In the year 3535

    Ain’t gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lie

    Everything you think, do and say

    Is from that squash you ate today

    In the year 4545

    You ain’t gonna need your teeth, won’t need your eyes

    You won’t find a thing to chew

    Except that same squash lookin’ at you

    In the year 5555

    Your arms hangin’ limp at your sides

    Your legs got nothin’ to do

    Some machine’s makin’ squash for you

    In the year 6565

    You won’t need no shopping for outfits so cute

    You’ll pick your wardrobe, Pucky’s boas too

    From a closet full of silver space suits

    In the year 7510

    If Cat’s a coming, He oughta make it by then

    Maybe He’ll look around Himself and say

    “I could go for some squash brûlée”

    In the year 8510

    Cat is gonna shake His mighty head

    He’ll either say I’m pleased where we’ve been

    Or squash it down, and start again

    In the year 9595

    I’m kinda wonderin’ if we’re gonna be alive

    We’ve taken all the squash this old earth can give

    And we ain’t put back nothing

    So it’s been a long, long time

    Eating squash is now a crime

    For what, we never knew, but pay our fines on zoom

    But through eternal night, the twinkling of starlight

    Would like to say, have a peaceful Thanksgiving Day

    In the year 2021, if we’re still alive

    If cats can survive, they may find…

    I remember the future. We had flying cars, and robot servants, and we went to Mars on holiday. And everyone wore shiny one piece garments, like Puck’s. Very tight ones for the younger women. (Except in Dan Dare. They stuck to the fashions of 1952.) But it isn’t like that now. The future isn’t what it used to be.

    Ahh the future. With jet packs, flying cars and technology that is indistinguishable from magic. You take one pill that makes you larger, and one pill that makes you small, and the ones that mother gives you, don’t do anything at all…Wait…that isn’t right. That is White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane. I’m all confused. I guess I didn’t say ‘no’ enough in my formative years.

    Just four of us (probably) for Thanksgiving, and it will be in person. Zoom is just too depressing for something like that.

    Our holiday party at work, after Thanksgiving, is supposed to have a Zoom conference between our stations on the east and west coasts. Seems kind of pointless to me, but hey, I’m a grumpy old fogey.

    I’m not sure why everyone thinks videoconferencing was not around before the pandemic. I admit there was not as much need for it. However, it is very much “The Present”.

    Today is:

    Wolfenoot: A day to be kind to wolves, dogs, and other canines. Created by a 7 year old child in New Zealand (where there are no wolves), it went “viral” on FacePlant. Thus it bears some resemblance to the idea of the Great Pumpkin. However, it has at its core a kindly regard for all canines. This is most appropriate to the human species, which owes them much more than is recognized.

    Fibonacci Day: Named after a pseudonym of the Italian mathematician who introduced it to the West, the sequence has been known to many other civilizations since ancient times. Both Fibonacci and his successors missed it’s real significance, which had to wait for Mandelbrot. However, Fibonacci’s real contribution to math was his introduction of the Hindu-Arabic numeral system to the West.

    National Cashew Day: Gesundheit! And don’t eschew cashews—unless you are allergic, in which case Gesundheit!!

    Doctor Who Day: I am not a Whovian, though I am an Honorary Citizen of Whoville. Originally intended as an educational science and history show, it rapidly devolved into pure fantasy. Do you know where your scarf is? Are there Doctors What, Where, and Why? If so, why do we never hear about them?

    National Espresso Day: Celebrate with more caffeine. I’ll have a double, strait up, hold the water …

    Still planning to drive my partner and myself to my sister’s three-person household for Thanksgiving. Masks except for eating, only five people, separate tables for the two households. Still wondering if this is a bad idea. She says she won’t be mad if I cancel at the last minute, which is most likely to happen if my partner is reacting badly to his chemo. He still says he WANTS to go, and I’m still worried about it. If it were just me, I wouldn’t go, but it’s possibly his last Thanksgiving.

    Well, the pandemic is pretty much having no effect on our Thanksgiving or Christmas—the two of us do each of those with one another every year. NY Eve, now, that may be affected—that’s when we do Christmas with my longest-time friends whom we love dearly. I suspect we’ll still go to their house, but that discussion has yet to take place. It’ll either be in person or not at all.

    The pandemic has done bad things all over the world; on balance we’re not hurt by it—both working from home instead of hours worth of commute. Our main recreation outside the house has been splattered—folk concerts, though some of those are live-streamed and we enjoy them nearly as much. Music festivals though—sigh. At least one did go virtual, but…

    The pandemic has cancelled many things. But the more we fight against changes in holiday celebrations, the more our commitment to loved ones is evident. I would rather miss family this year to celebrate with them next year, rather than to lose someone because one of us traveled.

    And by the way, Georgia, we probably can all see the lettering you were using for “THE FUTURE”, using a font that is very carefully Not Official Star Trek Font, but looking enough like it that we all get the idea.
