If I were a turkey I'd be gobblin'

Holy shite, I'm cooking Thanksgiving dinner. It's just for Paul, Zack, Maxine and myself (and maybe Brittany and any other friends who stop by our door), but still.

Hee. This should be a riot :) Guess I should make up some sort of menu, eh?

First off, we'll do that Alton Brown brined turkey thing
stuffing (hrm, how do I make that? I'll find something online, I guess)
green bean casserole
smashed potatoes w/ garlic and chives
homemade gravy
rolls (hello, pillsbury doughboy)
fantastic made-up cranberry sauce (maybe I should figure out what's in it first? naaaaaaah)
can shaped cranberry sauce (love it!)
pumpkin pie
ice cream

Did I forget anything?

Why, yes. I forgot to post this last night. D'oh!

We have one car atm, so I ran to the store as soon as it opened this morning. I missed the rush, but it was still pretty busy.

I was in such a hurry that I ended up buying a HUGE FARKING TURKEY. So now I'm considering returning it for a smaller one at lunchtime. On my bike. With two underinflated tires. With a twelve pound bird in my backpack.

My life is just silly sometimes.

Very cool pool tricks:


Bestest road trip story ever, even though nothing really happened:
Tales from the blue-taped S4

Whee, nurse lady just called, wanting to do saliva tests for our AAA life insurance. I'm assuming it's a cotinine (nicotine) test.

Well, here's the thing... though I've considered myself a nonsmoker for years, I've had my moments "off the wagon" as it were. One of those "moments" was the several weeks recently that Z's mom was with us. When she left, I stopped smoking (though I did use one of those dinky 7mg patches for a couple of days). And then last night, I was so nervous about the audition, and she was over... well, kabump! Off the wagon again I fell.

Now I'm craving like a mofo.

Well, it's a holiday week, so I'm sure the nice nurse won't mind if I schedule it for Monday or Tuesday. I should be clean by then.

Looks like I'll be having cold turkey a few days early this year ;)

Coolest ThinkGeek thing evah:


Thanks for all the love yesterday, folks. I'll get back to comments later tonight tomorrow sometime soon.

For now, though, I've got a ton of work to do. Hope you have a beautiful day, and a happy Thanksgiving (to those who celebrate it)!
