Our dear company managers arranged a catered early dinner for us at the King Edward Hotel, American-style, with turkey and cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie and apple cobbler.
It was absolutely lovely. Though, we had to show some restraint in the amounts of food we ate considering we did have a show later in the day. And that show involves leotards. And dancing. And preferably not throwing up.
And you don't think I forgot about my pet shark, Bruce, do you?
On the holidays I try to be kind to animals as well, so I let Bruce swim around in his element.So, I can tell you what Bruce was thankful for today...
Since Donna, my head of wardrobe has prohibited him from my shoe box, I try to make it up to him and let him swim around a little...It's the least I can do.
I sort of forgot about him, though, and left him in the bathtub. I didn't remember that's where he was until Gabi just recently came out of the bathroom, having just showered, and told me that it's kind of weird to step into the shower and see Bruce grinning up at her with all those teeth.
So, I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving day. Mine didn't feel quite the same; I miss my dear family and Drew so much. But, I am grateful for the lovely people who I am with. They make me laugh until I can hardly breathe sometimes. They let me borrow their pointe shoes (uh, thanks, Kevin). They have perfectly coifed hair (um, Ian). They remind me that they will be holding mandatory weigh-ins in Philly (bring it, John). They stretch my feet (ouch, Brandon). They brag to everyone they know about how quickly I read the Twilight Series books (what a proud stage mom, Gabi). And they come back from time to time to hold shabbats (Emily, you cannot stay away, and I am glad!). I am grateful for a lot this year, but right now I will say that I am especially grateful for friends.
So thank you, God, for all of them.
