Happy Post Thanksgiving!!


 Here's hoping you had a boneriffic Turkey Day, and that your turkey had a boner, and everyone had boners, and there were boners laying out in the yard, and like driving cars around, and one in your mailbox too which is absolutely a double entendre. 

For the first time in absolute centuries we spent Thanksgiving as the guests of another couple, instead of being the T-Day destination for stray people.  IT WAS AWESOME.  

Our host and hostess are fantastic cooks, and no holiday horrors were perpetrated on our palates - you know, like that gross sweet potato casserole with maple syrup, Karo syrup, brown sugar, onions, raisins, miniature marshmallows and canned sweet potatoes that's always kind of burned on top?  Or the nasty green bean dish made with Campbells mushroom soup and overboiled beans and mystery chunks?  No!  Begone! Not present!  WE had fresh asparagus spears and a green salad with pomegranate and feta cheese, and turkey and ham and potatoes and gravy and PIES PIES PIES!

There is a Carmel Apple Pecan Streusel pie making the rounds of supermarket bakeries here that is the most delicious thing ever.  We shared one for dessert last night. OMG I would totally smuggle this pie in my underpants across state lines. It was incredible. We were truly thankful. Traditional food-coma Thanksgiving meal - CHECK!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Even people who live in no-Thanksgiving countries and stuff.  Yesterday should have been wonderful for you and I sincerely hope it was, because all you guys are one of the things that I'm thankful for.  You make my day and lift my spirits.  

                                                          Rock on with your bad selves!

Now THAT's what I call a cock roast! Jx

PS the two dishes you describe (that you didn't have, thankfully) don't even sound like real food - just some psycho's dream of throwing whatever they have to hand into a pot and hope for the best! Meat and veg and pie sounds much more rational.

Clearly, I should have said you REALLY needed me and snuck off to enjoy your Thanksgiving! Sounds wonderful! My Thanksgivings are always awkward, family duty and what not. I can't drunk because I'm the ride, so we do our best to put in an appearance and leave after an acceptable amount of time. Fortunately, everyone now rants on the same side of the political spectrum so I'm grateful for that.

Cox Boner, Private Dick ?
Gumshoe galore.

Glad about the Streusselkuchen, and all the other indulcements, now let's not marvel over Streussel and undergarments, as tempting as it may be. And itching.

I'm glad You and all Your's have a good time - I just can repeat meself : Love, peace, and understanding all 'round, please !

You sound like you had a delicious blow out!
I had fish'n'chips with extra mayo, which was nice.
Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

I think that after everything you've been through, you definitely deserved having an awesome Thanksgiving dinner cooked for you.
See if you can get an invite back there next year, too!

My sister gave me dinner, which was roast chicken. So a nod in the turkey direction. Happy thanksgiving, belated as my wishes are. It's all so tits up here that I can barely do anything at the right time, but one does ones best!

Jon: Those are both absolutely real things, and everybody used to have one, the other or both at Thanksgiving (I'd have to say that most people still do, in fact, particularly in the flyover states.) You could almost get the GBC down, but the Sweet Potato Disaster was utterly inedible if you hadn't first lived through the Great Depression.

ProximaBlue: At least the political shit is no longer an issue for you. It's the small blessings sometimes!

Breen Lantern: Well thank you! I hope you did too. We've been pretty lucky, all things considered.

63Mago: Oooo, that joke! I'm gagging! Well done! See, that's the kind of humor I admire. I'm glad you're out there, bud.

Ms Scarlet: Chips with mayo. Now as a Murrican I'm supposed to scoff at such a thing right? But they serve that here and it ROCKS. I'm glad you had a nice meal. I could deal with some fish and chips right about now, in fact.

Inexplicable DeVice: Man, thank you so much. Our friends will be flattered to hear that, too. Now go do the Batman Boogie!

Z: There you go! I'm so glad there's people out there for you, and that they have roast chicken. That's like bonus friend points. I hope things get easier for you, hon.
