Man, I don't know what it is about the Thanksgiving holiday, but I never can seem to get my shit together for a Turkey Day special rendering. Christmas, Fourth of July, Halloween, no problem, but I'm ironically cursed when it comes to America's annual celebration of eating to excess, which ought to be right in my damn wheelhouse.
In 2011 I apologized
for not mustering my planned "Misty's Epic Thanksgiving" sequence. Last year I skipped it. This year I thought I was going to let the holiday slide once again, but then I had the inspiration for a simple, non-epic family scene with the three McIntyre girls. I got them some nice dinner outfits together, but once I started setting the dinner table, it all went to hell. DAZ Studio has catastrophically crashed twice today under the strain of the intended feast. So I get the message, all right? Thanksgiving is not to be, yet again. I give up. I'm out of patience and I'll be too busy the rest of this week with the Criterion Zatoichi blu-ray set
and traveling to be with family. Maybe next year. Sigh. So frustrating and disappointing that I can't bring my game to the event Governor Chris Christie calls The Show. (According to Letterman.)
Regarding other foreseeable projects, I have a few one-off pieces in mind and an art trade with Kyarine
, but I really am itching to do some multi-part series. I'm going to tackle the "Weekend of Joy" as soon as I can in the new year. There's also a Misty/Miranda teamup I've had in mind for a while. I've accumulated a bunch of outfits and props for the sisters' journey to Japan. And a lot of people keep asking about Mama McIntyre, and I'm thinking we will finally meet Mrs. Angie come Mother's Day 2014.
So enjoy your Thanksgiving, my American friends, and just use your imaginations to picture how Misty & co. are bringing new meaning to the words "stuffing the turkey," somewhere in the digital ether. Sorry to have failed you again! But in the true spirit of the holiday, I am thankful for all the many blessings I do enjoy.
