It’s that time of year again. This Thanksgiving Day, I’ll be in Albuquerque, overeating with my mom’s side of the family, overindulging my new nephew (six weeks old, folks!), and trying to care about NFL football now that I’m in a bonafide college town, and the Georgia Bulldogs claim my pigskin attention. As with previous years, I direct you to two pieces I wrote to honor this holiday:
1) “To hell with Turkey Day” (2006), on the possibilities of better Thanksgiving food, especially apropos given that I’m in New Mexico for the holiday.
2) “Pieces of April” (2007), on my favorite Thanksgiving movie. Here’s hoping Katie Holmes gets her mojo back.
Enjoy, and God bless you.
