Thanksgiving was really fun this year. I got to go to Jonah’s house on wednesday night and see him for the first time in a while. We had a good time, ate pizza and watched some television. I slept in Lakewood and in the morning we went to Micah’s and hung out there while the kids made apple turkeys. Robin picked me up and we drove to her parent’s house. I had a deadline to meet for Westword so I had to hide out in her parent’s office and draw as fast as could while they got the house ready for visitors. Robin’s family were hosting Thanksgiving for a lot of people. They had to set up tables and get it all set while making dinner. The people arrived and I had my usual awkward moments of silence and invisibility. I listened to a bunch of drunk people talk about wine tasting. Then we ate and I sat next to a guy named bill who had scabs all over his arms that he kept picking at. Maybe for a hobby. It was freezing cold last night and Robin’s parents live in the woods. I saw some deer walk by the window as well as a rabbit who was hopping around. When we left it was really, really dark outside since there are no street lights in the woods. We found the car. I had to find a Kinko’s so I could photocopy this page that I had worked on earlier, but all of the Kinko’s were closed. We tried the CU Denver campus, and alas, it was also closed up tight. Discouraged, I was dropped off at home. There was a lady sleeping on a couch in my alley way. I felt bad for her. It was very cold!
