Happy Thanksgiving

November 23rd, 2010

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Good luck with that.

The ConductMom is in town for Thanksgiving, so posting may be light over the holiday weekend. But I’m always eager to hear from you. On the other blog, we’re talking holiday cards. What are your opinions?

And what are you grateful for this year? I think, in 2010 in particular, I’m very grateful that I’ve continued to get to know and deepen my relationship with my extended family, and also that Mr. Improbable and I seem to have survived the recession with our odd little careers more or less intact.

On Thanksgiving Day, we’re going to go see the Harry Potter movie. So … which Harry Potter character is your favorite, or whom would you play, if there were some community-theater version of the show? I think I’d be Minerva McGonnigle. I know she’s supposed to be in her early 70s, but I think that’s too old … I’ve always thought of the character as being in her 40s or 50s. (If they cast American actors, I’d put either Michelle Forbes or Katey Sagal in the role.)

Talk with me, talk amongst yourselves, talk with your mouth full — Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the HP movie. This is the best one and it didn’t even feel like half a movie. No spoilers, but I was impressed with the flow and editing; past movies seemed choppy and hurried to me.

    I think you’d be a great Professor McGonnigal (not that I know you or anything…but from the impression I get from the internet!). She’s severe and firm, but with refreshing splashes of whimsy. I also picture her much younger than 70s.

    I am grateful I still have a job. I am grateful that I like my job. I am grateful for the opportunities I have had to travel this year and for all the potential travel destinations roaming through my head. I am grateful that I’ve found a great yoga studio, that I’ve had the free time to re-read the Harry Potter books (1-5 — I need to get 6 and 7 to re-read, as I borrowed those from a grade schooler when they came out). And tea. I am grateful for tea this morning.

    I would like to think I could play a great Ginny Weasley.
