Happy Turkey Day......

 If some here can find a way to put their fangs and knives away, say what you will but I know many here will spend time with family, like I will with my mom. Enjoy your day, we can live to VERBALLY fight another day.

Went to a local deli picked up some pre cooked trimmings my mom and I will heat up at her place, no muss no fuss, watch some football and hangout.

Rooting for the Panthers against Dallas despite what they did to the Skins last week. Lions always my underdog. Bears although Packers arre the likely pick.

 I need my knives to cook

 I need my knives to cook dinner, and for wild turkey fangs don't hurt (it tends to be a bit tougher than domestic turkey). But like you I am spending it with my mom, I'm going to be living here through the end of the year to help her out, give my sister a break and because I'm the biggest asshole in the family to do battle with United Fucking No Healthcare.

If the roads don't get terrible, my sister will be headed over for dinner and hopefully bring some fruitcake and with luck my bro in law will have some new beer.

If, if a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you - if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy.- Malcolm X

speaking of knives, my

speaking of knives, my father has a drawer full of my grandmother's old carbon steel kitchen knives and i'm bringing a bunch back in my suitcase next visit. most of them need scouring and sharpening, but i'm up to it, because seriously dude, fuck stainless steel. i'm so fucking sick of shitty knives that won't hold an edge. i was cutting up pork shoulder today and got so frustrated that if my wife and kids weren't home, the "chef's" knife would've ended up in the wall.

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."

Ended up cooking at our home

Ended up cooking at our home for a change and inviting the in-laws over for a small dinner.

We then went to my parents where my sister once again had a dry, very late turkey. I'm thankful for what I have but I'm tired of having to wait until two hours before bedtime to eat a fucking meal. Never fucking again.

This xmas I want to order the meal and take a break from cooking. The local deli here cooks up every thing from turkey to elk and you just have to pre-order it. My neighbor did that today from Fresh Market. The entire meal was all pre-cooked. Just warm it up in the oven for 15 minutes and you are done.

I think Canada is a better thanksgiving where the fucking meal is about giving thanks. Here in America it is who wants to stand in line for 18 hours to get a 50% savings on a big screen tv.

The unfortunate timing of

The unfortunate timing of Black Friday. The Canadian equivalent is on Dec 26th, Boxing Day. Though the last 5 years or so we've started having our own Black Friday to compete with the US, since the dollar was so high.

I really don't

much care for any of the holidays anymore as they all turned out to be a day of enterprise. I belong to a mild family setting so no one is hopped up on commercial values. But--it is fun to get together dispite my dislikes for the attached commercialism. I got to see the whole kit and kaboodle including 2 great grand kids last night--that's what I was thankful for. Lotsa hi and hugs is where it's at. Hopeing all ahd a great day yesterday. Old Seer.

Say it isn't so! The Canadians are supposed to be the pure ones!
