Thanksgiving

I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving!

I went to my Mommy’s place for Thanksgiving, and am staying with her for the next few days, too. We had turkey, potato salad, mashed potatoes, and fudge. She agreed that we could put bacon in the potato salad this time, and we found that we both liked it better that way. The fudge tasted great, but it had a consistency similar to pudding. We’re not sure why that happened. Overall, it was still a good meal.

This year, I’m thankful for getting my Social Security, my new kitty, Tomodachi, and my readers (hi!) What are you thankful for?

My Experience Trying a Sci-Fi/Fantasy Meetup Event

On Saturday, I went to a sci-fi/fantasy Meetup. The group meets every month at a cafe in a bookstore at the mall. I like the location cuz I’m into books and coffee. I saw Hershey’s chocolate cheesecake in the display case and would like to try it sometime.

Someone gave the group an important life update, and everyone was supportive. I like that the group is a safe space and people can share things like that.

I think, including myself, there were nine people at the event. We started out having one giant conversation, which broke up into some smaller conversations going on at the same time. Since I haven’t had much social experience before, I didn’t expect that to happen. I was kinda flustered cuz it was hard to focus and to decide which conversation to participate in. I wound up participating in each sub-conversation for a little while.

There’s a person in the group who I’m attracted to. It sounds like he’s one of the regulars. I asked him a couple of questions about the Godzilla movie he was talking about, and he was responsive. I’d like to ask him out to coffee, but I’m not sure how well I have to know someone before it’s appropriate to ask them on a date. I’ll do some research about dating.

I got to learn a little bit about Doctor Who, a show that I’d like to check out. Doctor Who can remember things from past lives, which is cool, and in a spin-off show, the Doctor is a woman.

I had a great time at the Meetup and will keep going. I give Meetup a thumbs up as a site for meeting people.
