It's Thursday, MKF! Today I started my two weeks of emergency on-call which means 24/7 phone on every minute. Also had fun talking with family AND preparing for Gold Rush Days, a show I produce in Sacramento, CA on Labor Day.

Hey MKF, did you know today is Martin Sheen's birthday? You're probably imagining him in The West Wing, but here he is with a ridiculous head in Babylon 5.

Hey MKF, you know how everyone loves the smallest cutest member of the group the most? Of course you do. Well, today we celebrate the birthday of the late Kenny Baker, who got stuck inside a dustbin day after day in Tunisia to bring R2-D2 to life (he was also Paploo, the Ewok who 'borrowed' a speeder bike to distract the scouts in Return of the Jedi). Speaking of sci-fi birthdays it's also those of William Morgan Sheppard (the Klingon prison warden in Star Trek VI, and the Soul Hunter in Babylon 5 - same species as Martin Sheen above, among other things), Tony Amendola (Master Bra'tac, the coolest old guy in the galaxy, in Stargate SG-1), Elizabeth Debicki (under all the gold paint in Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2), and Grey DeLisle (the voice of basically everyone in everything - now gets credited as Grey Griffin, and I feel like even if you want to change your name after getting married, hey it's your name do what you want with it, maybe just as your actor credit name it might not be the best idea to switch from 'really cool name' to 'something from the D&D Monster Manual'). It's also the day the printing of the Gutenberg Bible was completed, and coincidentally the birthday of Steve Guttenberg, from the first few (good) Police Academy movies.

Hey MKF (it's still Thursday where you are, right?) - cats like science, right? And staring at computer screens (and walking on keyboards, I've noticed, but we love you anyway). Cassini's just over twelve hours from Saturn, and here's a cool little self-updating rendered view of it. Enjoy!

Hey MKF - this particular Thursday, according to that list of food days I keep finding weirdly interesting for who knows what reason, is Family Day: A Day To Eat Dinner With Your Children. In case you were wondering why your mums Willow and Tara put you and your bowl up on the table to have dinner with them today :wtkiss

Hey MKF - it's World Teachers' Day today! And a fine cause that is, because 'teacher' and 'underappreciated' seem kind of synonymous, and reflecting on my own school years (some ancillary elements of Hero - although not the whole thing, obviously - were a bit autobiographical) brought to mind some of the teachers I had back then, and they were a great bunch.

It's also the day when, in 1962, Dr. No was released, the first James Bond film. You know when your mums go have private Smut Bunnies time in their bedroom, that's where the inspiration for all that came from :wtkiss

Hey MKF - it's Thursday, and you know what that means? It's Hugh Jackman's birthday. (That only works for this specific Thursday though, not all of them.) He has claws and stuff when he's being Wolverine, so that's almost as good as an actual kitten. Not quite, but almost :kitty

Hey MKF - did you see the Black Panther trailer? Pretty awesome, but naturally, what with cats being awesome and all. It's got me wondering though, who'd win, Black Panther or Pink Panther?

Hey MKF, it's Thursday, and for some reason wikipedia wants history to remember that on this day (in 2004) GTA San Andreas was released. I suspect history's going to think some GTA fan had too much time on their hands - although (I had to look this up, I forget which game is which) San Andreas was the one that had the 'hot coffee' thing in it, where if you hacked the game to unlock a minigame that was inaccessible normally, you could see your blocky polygon person having sexy with his blocky polygon girlfriend, and that was a big controversy, because oh no, sex...

I prefer to remember this as the day when Supergirl first aired (in 2015). Not sure what code you have to put into the tv to unlock a Kara/Lena romance, but I'm keeping an eye on it (not that Sanvers isn't awesome, just y'know, why not both?)

Oh Chris. You know not what is to come.

I haven't seen any of season three yet. But I did just do a quick google for news, and saw Floriana Lima's down to recurring cast, so... because she needs more time because they're going to make a spin-off buddy cop/romance show of her and Alex having Science Police Adventures? Yeah that must be it. :brr

But anyway, while I'm in the MKF thread, hey MKF, it's still Thursday in the US, so even though you're not completely black, you can celebrate along with us here (where it's Friday) for Black Cat Appreciation Day. I had a black cat when I was growing up, Alexander the Great.

Hey MKF, it's Thursday, and this particular Thursday happens to be Carl Sagan's birthday. He was a pretty cool guy, loved science, I'm sure Willow will tell you all about him, although it's not quite as well known that he also saved the world from an extradimensional monster, as seen here:

(Not sure if actual kittens can read comic books - I mean, being adopted by a pair of witches, who knows? - but internet kittens should check out Atomic Robo for more.)

Hey MKF - it's Thursday, and the day after the Yes vote on same-sex marriage, our parliamentarians are already hard at work turning the actual legislation into a godawful pretzel of random tangent arguments. But fingers crossed (or paws in your case) it'll get there in the end. It's also the first day for the Justice League movie (got my ticket) or as I'm hoping it'll turn out to more accurately be, 'Wonder Woman and Friends'. Paws crossed on that too.

Happy Thursday, MKF! Every Thursday is worth celebrating, but it's even more special when it's Thanksgiving Thursday. I love Thanksgiving so much! Why can't all holidays be on Thursday?

This was a quiet Thanksgiving at the gorn household, the family is spread out across the country. Just myself, mrs. gorn and our kids ... and not meaning to sound cold-hearted or ungrateful, but sometimes that's kinda nice, too, you know? We could sleep in, watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade at our leisure off the DVR, the kids could make a mess ... but best of all, most best of all, mrs. gorn could experiment on the turkey stress-free. For the first time, she tried injecting it with apple juice - I thought that sounded kinda weird, but the results were amazing. She also tried cooking it upside down for 45 minutes. Now when we have friends or family joining us next time for Thanksgiving, mrs. gorn is free to do it again because she knows it works. Damn good turkey.

I've said this before, but I'm very thankful to have married a woman like mrs. gorn. She didn't grow up with Thanksgiving, never even cooked something in an oven until she met me. When we first came to America, she was determined to tackle the Thanksgiving turkey on her own, and she has mastered it. We have a fantastic traditional spread every year (except for cranberry sauce, neither of us really like that), and each year she literally outdoes herself. People say that a lot at Thanksgiving, but in mrs. gorn's case it's very true.

I'm very lucky, I have a lot to be thankful for. I'm thankful for the friends I made here on the Kittenboard, even though none of us are around like we used to be, myself included. I'm thankful to Artemis for keeping this bestest of all threads going each Thursday! Bravo!

I miss a lot of you out there. Hope you have as much to be thankful for in your lives as I do.

Thanks! (Sorry for the wait, but I could hardly reply when it wasn't Thursday, what kind of sense would "Hey MKF, it's not Thursday" make?) As a representative of the non-Thanksgiving nations the holiday does seem kind of mysterious, but at the same time the idea is very touching, and maybe it wouldn't be a bad thing if we adopted it one of these days. I'm thankful for the Kittens as well - past and present - and just the continued existence of the board. Even during my absence, I'd load a page up every now and then, and think yep, good times, and I'm sure a lot of others do too. As Richard O'Brien said in Dark City, "We're very lucky when you think about it - to be able to revisit those places that have meant so very much to us." (And, yes, granted he was playing a grade-A nutcase at the time, but still, he had a point.)

Anyway - hey MKF, it's Thursday! And on this particular Thursday back in 1934, the most famous steam locomotive ever (and in overall train stakes second only to the Orient Express, but nobody remembers what was up front doing the work of hauling Poirot and his suspects around), the Flying Scotsman, became the first engine to be officially confirmed to reach 100mph. She also set the record for longest journey - 679km - while visiting Australia in 1989. I have to admit I'm more partial to our local 'most famous train' though, 3801, which used to regularly come and go from Central, not far from where I live, when I was younger - she's undergoing restoration at the moment, but is set to be back on the tracks next year. (I never went full model railway fan, but I do quite like steam engines, although at the moment the only ones I've got on display are Lego - the Hogwarts Express, and Lego's own Emerald Night, which is heavily inspired by the Scotsman.)

It's Thursday (where you are) MKF! And on this particular Thursday, Australia officially stopped being jerks (in this case, at least), with legislation changing our legal definition of marriage from 'a man and a woman' to 'two people' passing through the lower house. And with the Governor-General's royal assent or whatever (yes, that's still part of our government) basically a foregone conclusion so far as I know, that means your mommies can get married in Australia, if they happen to be Australian. I have to confess, wherever my fics are actually set, the mental Willow and Tara I listen to and write down what they do and say do kind of tend to have Australian accents - and I've got at least one story idea in the works where Willow (and a bunch of the other Scoobies) will be Australian by birth (and Tara, so far as I've worked things out, will hail from Bermuda originally). But of course the central Willow and Tara, who all the others are kind of multiversal facets of, are all kinds of magic, so I'm sure they take that sort of thing in their stride.
