And apparently that has led to the consensus that I am either
Straight, plastic, a letch or completely vapid and brainless.

I hate that I start this section again this year in its own post.
double hate that I start with the loss of a friend.
and loath entirely the fact that I then have to add the death of a friend’s father..
and more loss in the fandom worlds.

"nunc tamen intereā haec, prīscō quae mōre parentum
trādita sunt tristī mūnere ad īnferiās,
accipe frāternō multum mānantia flētū.
Atque in perpetuum, frāter, avē atque valē."
Catullus 101 - Gaius Valerius Catullus
Disclaimer: You won’t hear much about the virus in this.
I’m not a denier, I know the damage and destruction covid19 has caused and the death toll, therefore I am not yet cold enough not to realise this is going to sound completely selfish, but that is my decision. My reviews focus on MY year.
Just so you’re aware.
So today, if I’ve got my dates right, is Thanksgiving over in the US and Canada.
Happy Thanksgiving to all who Celebrate.
We don’t celebrate it over here,
However w do see it, since the world has gotten more interconnected and social media is covered in turkeys and tinsel.
and it makes you think, or it does me anyway.
aside from the historical aspects, one of the things about the holiday that always interests me is when someone posts one of those “reasons we are thankful.” Posts.
Given this year I’d say that’s more poignant than ever..
So not meaning to be disrespectful to anyone I swear
