Happy Thanksgiving

One year ago I was on a cruise to the Bahamas

Two years ago I was celebrating my first Thanksgiving away from home in Oxford.
This year it doesn't even feel like Thanksgiving. I'm going to a Thanksgiving dinner, but not until Saturday. So today felt really weird, America felt really far away. Even though I did go to a big service this morning at St. Paul's Cathedral, hosted by the American embassy. The service was wonderful, but odd because I wasn't there with my family and I didn't have a big dinner to look forward to. After I had to go to another IO seminar aka 50 minutes of listening to a Dutch boy state various statements about how evil America is. And now I'm sitting in my room, with no turkey or pumpkin pie (I did have a turkey sandwich with cranberry and stuffing at Pret for lunch, so that was nice). It's kind of sad. At least I have brownies to look forward to at roughly 730 and then a big swanky party in Oxford tomorrow night.
