Happy Thanksgiving one and all. I wish that my school had Friday off (as would be the case back home). But if for some reason I don't make it in to work tomorrow it will be because I either ate too much turkey and drank too much wine, stayed up too late watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and football, or both. While I normally rail against the excesses of the US, Thanksgiving is the one time I am willfully a hypocrite. Those of you in cities large enough to have a Meridian hotel, you can rest assured there will be a nice Thanksgiving spread. Those of you in Bangkok can go to Bourbon Street, or grab something to heat up at home from Villa Market or get a rather inexpensive meal from the diner inside Foodland. Have Happy Thanksgiving, even if you aren't a Yank.
