Happy Thanksgiving, people of the internet! I hope you enjoyed a long, lazy day with your loved ones and remember to wear your stretchiest pants. Here are recommendations for what to read, listen to, eat, and do as I recover from a week of epic feasting.
READ. Seveneves by Neal Stephenson is on sale for $2.99 (ebook)! Not sure how long it’ll last, but if you like science, outer space, badass women, speculative fiction, the apocalypse, or feeling like you’re one tiny, tiny fish in a very vast ocean…this is the book for you.
LISTEN TO. If you read my Sunday Fundays with any regularity, you’ve probably noticed that I listen to the same podcasts every week…so I’d really love any podcast recommendations you can make! I like brainy, non-fiction podcasts from which I can learn something. Hit me with your best shot!
EAT. I procrastinated my Thanksgiving shopping just long enough that, when I arrived at Central Market, the kale section was absolutely decimated. The portion of the produce cooler labeled “ORGANIC SNOOTY PERSON KALE” was entirely empty, aside from a few scraps of wilted leaves. I begrudgingly drove from store to store until I found one halfway-decent looking bunch of kale, and eventually managed to toss together this delicious Kale-Pomegranate-Bacon salad. Quite tasty!
DO. Remind yourself that Christmas isn’t all about presents, but they’re certainly fun to buy and give. I treated myself to an early Christmas present and I could not be more excited.
