Our office temperature is fine everywhere but the lunch/break room. I’m in here trying to eat lunch with my coat on. It beats last year when I had to eat in my car, but not by much.

The idea that I have to cook a meal again any time soon after preparing a feast yesterday feels like the height of absurdity. Somehow everyone is going to want to have a regular meal again this weekend and that feels like aggression.

Warmest Thanksgiving greetings to everyone—even the lady who was waving at me enthusiastically until I got closer and she realized I wasn’t who she thought I was.

People who are hosting/cooking for Thanksgiving should get the day BEFORE Thanksgiving off--WITH PAY. This is my firmly held religious belief.

Good morning to everyone but especially to this girl who has never greeted me with anything less than unbridled enthusiasm, even when there are no treats involved.

Thinking about cooking that entire Thanksgiving meal and I already want to take that meal-induced nap.

I’ve been watching all these folks push and pull enormous amounts of weight today and I am very tired.

At a weightlifting competition to support 1 of my kids. I know very little, but I’m having fun. Also, again, I know very little, but 1 of these judges might be East German & have only ever lifted nothing heavier than a beer stein. Kid doing great, just an observation.

Headed to a campus visit at @LifeAtPurdue . As an IN transplant (albeit, a long-time resident) I've never been! Any recs for best places to eat, must sees?

I’m making breakfast for dinner and the idea of it is getting me through the afternoon.

Last night ushered in the holiday season & here’s how I know: anxiety dreams and anxiety insomnia. It’s like clockwork. It will generally disappear in January. WHEEEEEEE!

Anyone have any oxy? OXYTOCIN--because I need to load up on love and trust with some of you people out there.

After looking at my clock at 6:40p.m. and realizing that it was ONLY 6:40p.m., not much later as my time-addled brain had assumed, I have resolved that the "happy light" comes out tomorrow. Hoping it mends/bends time & my attitude.

My son walked in on me folding a fitted sheet & he called me a witch. I said Tie a millstone around my neck and watch me float buddy!

If your countertop doesn’t look like this, I don’t know how to interact with you in this most hallowed of noodle season.
