Love to eat turkey!

How do I love thee Thanksgiving? Let me count the ways...
  1. I love that Thanksgiving is a national holiday with no twisted religious aspects attached to it. Yes I am aware of the fact that the pilgrims came here so they could worship as they pleased, I'm a first grade teacher after all, but that wasn't the real reason behind the actual day of thanks.

  2. I love that it's a day of appreciation that everyone can be involved in, even if they are not American. No matter how bad things are, there is always something to be thankful for.

  3. I love that it's a day for family and friends.

  4. I love that I get to do my favorite things - cook, eat, and watch football. Hopefully next year I'll get to do another of my favorite things too.

  5. I love that after I do all the cooking I can relax while everyone else has to clean up. And watch more football.

  6. I love the smells of the food and the fireplaces and the cold in the air.

  7. I love that I'm back in the Northeast so I can have a fire going in the fireplace.

  8. I love the feeling of belonging, that everyone in every house around me is doing the exact same thing.

  9. I love that I am no longer a professional chef, so I have the day off.

  10. I love the Adam Sandler Thanksgiving song.

I can find better Thanksgiving songs than that one.

And by better, I mean vastly worse.

"I love that I get to do my favorite things - cook, eat, and watch football. Hopefully next year I'll get to do another of my favorite things too."

This reminds me I need to bring in some wood for a good old fashioned 9 hour fire in the living room.

It's hard to get laid on Thanksgiving because of all the coats on the bed.

I fell in love with Adam Sandler over that song.

How do you get someone else to clean up? Do you dine with only females? In my family the women have to do everything and the men sit on their butts on the couch grunting.

But I love it all the same.

Happy Thanksgiving!

You guys get me so confused. We had Thanksgiving on Oct. 8 so all this talk of Thanksgiving has me thinking I've stepped in blissful ignornace through a time portal and ... Well, it gets me confused.

That's what comes from living on the upper part of the map (aka Canada): Excellent winter wear and muddled minds from your puzzling holidays.

...and I will love hearing that ACHS beat Holy Spirit on Thursday morning.

Bill said...

I have absolutely no idea what Flounder was referring to. Are these prize turkeys? Is this like Michael Vicks and dog fighting?

Bone said...

I prefer the Adam Sandler Hanukkah song. But this one's good, too.

"Gobble gobble goo and gobble gobble gickel. I wish turkey only cost a nickel."

Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving

I LOVE Adam Sandler's song.

My son declined to come home from college for T-day because, "It celebrates the beginning of the white settlers genocide of the natives." So there. Sigh.

I love it even though I'm vegetarian. I love my family coming home and the hot woodstove fire and a nice walk after dinner. Alas no family this year for the first time. But that's ok too.

Miss Manners! What a hoot!
