I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, even those of you from Canada. You celebrated back in October and we barely noticed. You didn't complain. Apparently, you Canadians are much more civilized.
Hum....maybe you have us fooled. Perhaps you are plotting a takeover. Is it because you'd like better choices for Mexican food and a few more warmer days?
Thanksgiving not only brings copious amounts of yummy body-expanding foods, it gives us the tradition of FOOTBALL. What else are you supposed to fall asleep doing but watching football? Our local professional team, the Dallas Cowboys, who usually pull a win out their a**holes, have done that again, this time winning their division.
Yeehaw and whatever. I used to love the Cowboys back in the Tom Landry days. He was a class act and so were many of the players. Now days? Not so much.
College football is also big, of course. Two of the infamous Texas teams, The Aggies (Texas A&M) and the The Longhorns (University of Texas) traditionally play on Thanksgiving. I have friends from the Always-the-Butt-of-the-Joke cult and from the Big-Cow-with-Long-Head-Ornaments cult so I get to play both sides. Yes, they are cults. These people never get over it, especially if they were Aggies.
As for our Thanksgiving meal, the pumpkin pie was conquered and put in its place. We ate the entire pie in one sitting. TAKE THAT, MR. SNOTTY PUMPKIN PIE!
Did I say waist-and-hip-expanding foods were consumed?
Hubby just found this picture of me on the Internets:
I think I'd better go for another run.
I'm not sure what Kitty ate but WT-Fur?
Happy Black Friday. May you not stand in lines or get punched by crazed parents wanting the latest fad toy. The highlight of my shopping day may be a trip to Home Depot.
