I wanted to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. Last night I was surrounded by family and family friends and I felt very blessed. Of course, then the topic of Ferguson was brought up. Or rather, the topic of "those animals in Ferguson" and "that thug who deserved to be shot" came up. And I then got mad.
I know everyone has their own feelings about what happened and these are strong feelings. I do as well. I'm not even going to get into the intricacies of the racial tensions in Missouri, the alleged corruption in the Ferguson police department, or the seemingly bizarre way that the district attorney's office chose to present the case to the grand jury. I'm not. I could say a lot on all of that, but that's not the issue. You are allowed to disagree or agree with the grand jury's decision but you're not allowed to be a racist asshole.
In this episode of The Vampire Diaries, Elena and Damon finally see each other face-to-face for the first time since he died, she had her memories erased, and he came back to life. (You know, normal typical college stuff.) There's also a teddy bear.
Damon is back! Just let me say that about a dozen times first... DAMON IS BACK! DAMON IS BACK! DAMON IS BACK! DAMON IS BACK! DAMON IS BACK! DAMON IS BACK! DAMON IS BACK! DAMON IS BACK! DAMON IS BACK! DAMON IS BACK! DAMON IS BACK! DAMON IS BACK! Can you tell I'm excited!? Of course, that excitement is short lived because this is TV and no one is allowed to be happy...
