friday wednesday random elevenish: “thanks” edition

21 Nov

Got a nice long holiday weekend queued up, and I largely knocked down all the big rocks at work on Tuesday afternoon. It’s nice to be able to pass along good news at status meetings. Weather was also pretty nice on Tuesday; I didn’t have the bike, but I stopped at the park and briskly hiked 2.5 miles after work, which felt good.

I’m tossing up my usual week-end post now because, as is usual for holiday weekends, I’m going to endeavor to spend some time away from the electronic world beyond catching some Pokemon, but that gets the fam and I out into the real world and we occasionally meet real people doing the same thing. It’s fun.

On the agenda for the holiday weekend? Not a heck of a lot, necessarily. At my lovely wife’s request, we’re playing it low-key and non-traditional for Thanksgiving (which also meshes well with the whole lot of them being kinda sick on college germs at the moment), though the eldest tells me we have to make jezebel sauce, so that’ll happen. Otherwise, I have no idea what we’re going to have; I have lots of possibilities in my fridge and pantry; I’ll see what the spirit moves me toward tomorrow.

Besides that, we have plans to get out and see the new Fantastic Beasts movie at some point, and I wouldn’t mind stopping by Isley on Friday to greet friends and grab a growler of the Apple Brown Betty ale (a collaboration with Blue Bee) they’re tapping, and my friend Dirty Metal Lefty is hosting a Black Friday open mic at a local coffee shop, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I made an appearance there with guitar and interested family members in tow to let off some steam and make some noise, because that’s a much better use of my time than lining up outside Walmart.

So, yeah. That’s the next couple of days. I expect there’ll be some kitten skritches in there as well, since he follows me around so darned much.

I provide the expected random playlist below; it’s heavy on the vikings, which is okay with me, especially the overblown and extended guitar breaks throughout #5, which are, well, \m/ (-__-) \m/ , to the Nth degree.
