Look, I don’t care if you have the most loving of families—at some point during your Thanksgiving celebrations, someone is going to say something political or religious or otherwise just piss someone else off.

Back in my day, we just called watching bad TV a “guilty pleasure.”
The season finale of Walking Dead and the season premiere of Game of Thrones made me realize some very disturbing things about myself. [MAJOR SPOILERS ON WALKING DEAD, GAME OF THRONES AND SONS OF ANARCHY]
A Lament for the Living
After watching the season finale of Walking Dead and the premiere of Game of Thrones, I said aloud after both episodes of television, “Well that was disappointing. Hardly anyone died.”
Upfront apology—this is a bit sad. Today, in my regular podcast listening I found out that comedian Tig Notaro was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I would like to first (well, I guess, second) say that I don’t know this woman. I find her absolutely enjoyable but I don’t actively follow her career. That said, when I heard she was diagnosed, it was as if a close friend or relative of my very own had been given this news. I know a lot about her from the various podcasts she’s done and she’s had a string of really, really awful things happen in her life. Notaro was hospitalized with pneumonia that developed into a bacterial infection and lost 30 pounds. A few days after she was released from the hospital, her mom died after falling and hitting her head. Then, her girlfriend broke up with her. And now she has cancer. Oh, and all that happened in the last FOUR MONTHS. I just cannot understand how all that can happen to one person. I’m a little ball of emotion right now but I highly encourage you to check out her comedy and laugh through sadness.
