WHAT I DID OVER THANKSGIVING BREAK WHILE STAYING AT MY PARENT'S IN ST. LOUIS

  1. Refused my mother's repeated requests that I sit on her heated toilet seat. Seems weird.
  2. Went to Ferguson with mom to support local businesses but the bakeries were pretty much out of everything. Oh and we saw only white people.
  3. Instagram'd annual Thanksgiving pic with Cousin Dave but realized candles we were holding in the pic were culturally insensitive to Native Americans and quickly deleted before losing all my jobs. Posted new pic holding turkeys.
  4. Royally kicked my family's ass in Balderdash on Thanksgiving
  5. Saw High School friends and floated idea of moving our next big reunion to NYC, said I will plan it. (Will return home and won't feel same sense of urgency about this issue)
  6. Ate provel cheese every single day. It's kind of a regional thing, half disgusting and half delicious #Delgusting
  7. Got two hundred pages into CITY OF LIGHT. I'm not enraptured yet, but I'm into it.
  8. Watched screeners of "Grandma" (solid lefty fare) and "Steve Jobs" (too exhausting/overblown for me)
  9. Pondered issues associated with next book
  10. Slept a ton. All in all, a very chill trip
