Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.
Since I don’t post Etsomnia™ on Thanksgiving (to give Etsy sellers something to be extra thankful for), I thought today would be a good time for a Thanksgiving post.
I freely admit I have kind of a problem with the holiday. Don’t get me wrong: I’m all about giving thanks and counting my blessings, but orange and brown and green and yellow bum me out. When they’re outside in nature, I enjoy the colors of the season just fine, but once you start decorating with them (or worse, dressing in them), I lose my appetite. So please forgive my general disgust with most things Thanksgiving. It really is just because I find most of it ugly.
