Counting Shades of Light

So, we here at Mirandala.org hope that all our readership (yes, all 12 of you) had a happy and cozy Thanksgiving Day. We had a very enjoyable time cooking, dining, and hanging out with friends. Despite some early concerns, we managed to produce a tasty meal – and weren’t reduced to serving toast, popcorn, and jelly beans ala Charlie Brown.

Also, as tradition dictates, we watched a little of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The parade, as I’m sure you’re well aware, is famous for the spectacle of gigantic high school marching bands from Florida, swarms of questionably-dressed teen cheerleaders, roving bands of Broadway musical performers, and the ever-popular and ever-lame commentary from over-paid morning show hosts. (Al: Gosh, Matt, that Turkey can really trot! Matt: You’re cornier than Kansas in August, Al! Katie: Someone get me a drink.) Still, if you’re a fan of the parade, you’ll want to check out this link for a surreal glimpse at what goes on the night *before* the parade.
