Thrive to spite them

M is in charge of the food and he has it cooking. We underestimated the weight of the turkey so ut wasn't close to done when I left.

Well, not where I'm from. But maybe I'm not there anymore

I was on the interstate when I remembered I was supposed to bring the wine that I had left in my living room so I stopped at a grocery store and got wine and impulse buys including shrimp cocktail! We were all starving so we had a bunch of appetizers and are planning on the actual meal at 3:30 or so. Which actually means we start heating stuff up soonish

We had a lovely, chill Thanksgiving. Now there is a football game in that no one I watching, because three of the five people in the room are asleep, and the one who is "watching the game" is... not. She is watching her phone.

I walked all three dogs (separately).

Ooh, now we're going to Bananagram! Nice!

Now tagless for your comfort.

Oliver and I just got back from the skating rink and we are starting dinner. DH prepped everything last night and pre-baked this morning.

So we just need to do the spuds and the beef tenderloin.

Happy Ritual Sacrifice with Pie.

If dreams were thunder // And lightning was desire // This old house would've burned down // A long time ago -- John Prine

In the post-carbs coma and halfway watching football before tonight's likely terrible football.

My friend grew up Jehovas Witness so isn’t used to celebrating thanksgiving. And her girlfriend is Ukrainian, so likewise. We shall see how this goes and who brings what!!

Now if your car ain't got it, go out and get it. We like the boom and don't you forget it. So turn down the treble and front your bass.

I had sarameg over for Thanksgiving and we didn't eat until 2:30, and everything was good. My misstep was not getting heavy cream. light cream does not whip, even if you add in butter as the interwebs instructed me.

Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday and I am Thankful for all of you.

Without a plan, it turns out, a lot of decisions are really hard. Eliot might actually hate his shrink. Yes, Eliot is getting healthier or whatever, but at what cost? He used to be a mess of scar tissue and substance abuse, but he could get dressed in the morning without an existential crisis.

We went to nephew's house and visited with them and ate snacky food (including shrimp cocktail, so it was a partial Shrimpsgiving), and then nephew loaded us up with dinner to go (smoked turkey, mashed taters, GF stuffing, and GF green bean casserole), so we don't need to cook anything here after Tim gets back from visiting his dad. He took a piece of pumpkin pie for his dad.

Nephew's neighbor across the street has one of those 12-foot skeletons from Home Depot, and is getting their money's worth, because it's outside the garage wearing a t-shirt that says HAPPY THANKSGIVING and it's holding an inflatable turkey. I need to go back and see what they do for Christmas.

Fandom means never having to say "But where would I wear that?"

Timelies all!

Back from dinner at Gary's mom's place. Dinner itself went fine, but Mr. S has been extra energetic since then.

Now tagless for your comfort.

I already booked the roller skating rink for Dec 23rd.
