Gobble Gobble

I totally meant to post yesterday, but spent the time I had set aside for blogging consoling my sister on the phone. She found out the rat bastahd she's been seeing for a couple of years recently joined a dating site. She needed someone to talk to about all the little ways in which he has given her pause to wonder over the course of their whole relationship. She said she's through with him and I told her over and over again that she is doing the right thing. Like I am anyone who should be passing out relationship advice.

Why the gobble gobble, you may be asking. Well, I was just thinking about the turkey dinner I had yesterday evening. One of my coworkers, lets call her Babymama (because all she ever talks about are her kids), invited me and Milly over to her house for dinner, to help her eat leftovers. Dang, sometimes a turkey dinner just really wows me when it isn't Thanksgiving or Easter or something. She's a really good cook too. I can and do cook of course...but I don't LOVE doing it the way a good cook should. After the meal, we even got some razzleberry pie. Unfortunately, all that starch and tryptophen(sp?) and sugar practically put me in a coma. Yet I still had to come back to work and be peppy for storytime and fiery and indignant for my sister. It was a long three hours.

Today the building is so packed. A good many of these kids are here every single day. Geez. I know when I was a kid I sure never spent that much time in a library, although I was the kind of kid who probably wouldn't have minded.

You're right; turkey dinners are awesome... but they are even more amazing when not on a holiday.

I'm loking forward to Thanksgiving already...

Really have nothing on turkey..not a big fan. I just eat enough of it to seem like I actually ate it. Thanksgiving = sides.....lots of sides.

For my first Thanksgiving at my apartment, I bought a whole, pre-cooked Thanksgiving meal, then before the guests came, my mom helped me hide the containers. Everyone gobbled up everything. It still makes me laugh.

So that bastard was dating your sister and he was on a dating website?? I don't know your sister, but I already know that she's way too good for him.

I haven't ever cooked a thanksgiving dinner yet. Since being in Michigan I have usually gone to one of my friends families house.
I will attempt it someday.

minijonb: We're on the same page with the turkey dinners!

misfit: Do you like chicken? Are you not a fan of meat in general. I love the sides, too though. Stuffing!

Tara: That is so cute! You know most of my Thanksgiving dinners have been barely ubove that level. I make the whole meal, but you know, it is like- bag the turkey, open the cans of vegetables, get out the Stove Top and the Potato Buds. Really cheaty stuff even with my special touches :-)

Rachel: See my comments above. You too can be a Thanksgiving wonder cook!

I love to eat the animals, but I ain't keen on no turkey. (Jules from Pulp Fiction, replace turkey with pig) Just never have been a huge fan.

ha! You should get extra points for making a Pulp Fiction reference here :-) That is always encouraged.
