Thanksgiving

As alwasy I'm conflicted about tomorrow.

On a personal level - I don't like any of the traditonal foods.

On a bigger level - I'm not too comfortable celibrating the subjigation of an entire race of people. On the flip side of it - my Grandfather rather loved Thanksgiving and he had every reason in the world to hate it. But it was a day off and he *did* work crazy hours.

If I don't wish you a happy thanksgiving... well have a conflicted thanksgiving.

If you want to get technical - this *isn't* a day of thinksgiving (those were done in prayer and fasting) this would be a day of celibration.

The holyday was kinda made for no good reason at all realy.

For me it is a day of no food. And it will be no food for sometime - until the turky is cleared. I don't fast well.

I'll be eating pie and onions and cranberry sause. There may be fish for me to eat. At this point I don't know yet. No I wouldn't be fasting byond the whole 'there is no food for me here' thing.

After one or so I'll probably off line as well.

In the draft of my family memoirs, I have a chapter titled, "Thanksgiving and Other Useless Holidays". (Amongst these--for me--is Valentine's Day)

Thanksgiving as a holiday lost its appeal about the time I had laid to rest most of my family. More so now-a-days, with no family.

I do like turkey however and I love stuffing, so I cook for Thanksgiving and then eat leftovers ad infinitum.

For Columbus Day I put a cartoon picture on the door: A sailing ship on the right and a wooded coastline on the left. Word bubble coming out of the coastline part: "There goes the neighborhood."

yeah I'm not a fan of this one - and I don't like the food.

I like the cartoon, you'll have to get me a copy.

I'm better off that you. At least I like the food. Well, as long as I can avoid sweet potatoes and green beans. (What is so special and holidayish about a green bean?)

I'm sorry that I cant supply a copy of the cartoon. I invented it and draw it when necessary for posting. It's pretty straightforward though. You should be able to come up with a copy on your own.

Happ... Er, survive Thanksgiving Day!

I love the break - perticurly now that I work in Wholesale. It fits between a show and the most stressful time of the year.

There was some disscussion of a tagging party after dinner - no I have an image of my (almost) 70 year old dad geting aressted for tagging.
