Thanksgiving or Festivus?

Last week, I attended our Thanksgiving luncheon at work, despite my reservations about how it would go with me being a vegan.  Last year, I chose to take the coward’s way out by staying away.  This wasn’t so difficult, as I was still new, wasn’t yet in management and had duties that left me working by myself most of the time.  This year was a bit different since my role has changed so drastically.  Accordingly, I thought it advisable for me to show up....more

My mom helped me with the essentials and we went on a shopping spree just before I left for the US, totally oblivious, of course, to the concept of imports and the possibility that Indian stores existed in the US – so I moved to the US with 90+ kgs of luggage (sounds worse in pounds – all of 198 lbs! ).Those were the good old days when you could carry 2 bags – 32 kgs each + 8 kgs of carry on + 20 kgs extra for students so all I needed was 3 trips a year to put the local Patel’s store out of business ....more
