I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I was thankful for no dishes but I’d be lying if I said I’m sad about a lack of leftovers. I don’t think I needed a week of leftover mashed potatoes but I’ve been on the pasta train lately, so what do I know really? In other news, Kristen and I just booked a last minute trip to New York to see The Cursed Child in December. It will be a quick trip but should be a fun one! I’ll finally get to pull out my winter things.

This week is super light in shows. I guess people are still sleeping off the turkey…

I got back from a lovely trip yesterday. I spent a long weekend in Tuscon watching Crimes of Grindelwald with friends, catching up on some things, making and eating food, and all around lounging around in pjs and watching stuff on television. It was a much-needed recharge for me and I’m home and ready to get back in the swing of things. I’m happy to sleep in my own bed at home though…

This is the first year in my entire life that I will be having Thanksgiving at a restaurant instead of at home. I’m looking forward to this experience but I might miss having leftovers after turkey day. Shows this week are a little anemic due to the holiday, so take the time to spend it with your family and friends. Please eat too much and enjoy your holiday if you celebrate it.

Just a quick note, this calendar is not complete but will be updated soon. I might have spent too much time cuddling my dog before I started this and had to get to bed… Maybe…

Tuesday: WYO, Ottopilot @ Belly Up at 8pm

Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving!
