You're welcome here

2020 has been one hell of a year... and I think that this year particularly, everyone should have friends and family... or chosen family... around them on the holidays if they can.

So... if you're a friend of mine (even if we've never managed to meet) and you don't have any family nearby to have thanksgiving with... or that you can STAND to have thanksgiving with... Or maybe you can't cook... or maybe you can't afford to put on a big special thanksgiving meal? You're welcome at our house.

Just you? Just you and your significant other? Just you and a housemate and neither of you can cook? Doesn't matter. If you want to be around cool people who you like, and have great food, and probably watch videos, listen to music, play games, and have great weird conversations, you're welcome here.

The only things I ask are:

1. If you can afford it bring beverages and/or desserts (because thanksgiving).

2. If possible, let me know you want to, or are planning to come over, so I can plan for how much food to cook (or rather, for how much TOO MUCH food to cook, because part of the joy of thanksgiving, is the leftovers for days afterwards).

... Trust me on this one, we lay out a damn good spread. I love to cook for friends and family, and thanksgiving is my favorite special meal to cook...

Plus, if we haven't managed to meet yet, it's a great opportunity to do so.
