Survival of the Fattest

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?

What? Iz not fat.
It's extra

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.

You win! You did more Thanksgiving activities than I did. I'm fixing the works for Vlad today since we did vegetarian Thanksgiving at a friend's house yesterday... it's just not the same!

Pop goes the kitty! Just give him a little poke with a needle and let's see what happens.

I'm sure it won't hurt or anything.

G' ahead!

Gives it a little poke (or two).


Glad you enjoyed your pumpkin pie and YOUR cowboys!

hee hee hee

How's it going?

You have a great blog here. I'm a first-time visitor but I'm liking what I see. I have a college blog myself which I hope to be a top resource for college kids looking to talk about some stuff. I was wondering if we could do a link exchange and help spread some traffic around between us.

Please let me know if this is possible.

Did you do the Mexican thang for Thanksgiving?

The Old Silly said...

LOL, that photo of you off the internet shows that you wear your weight well - very pleasingly plump. Me? I survived, but I'm now the even fatter Old Silly

ReformingGeek said...

@honeypie - Yes, we had our Mexican feast. It was great!

@Marvin - Why thank you. It's good to know my curves are still distinguishable. I'm glad you survived. Maybe you should go for a run? ;-)

Hey I forgot to mention I made a pecan pie.

Don't you Texans specialize in pee-can pie?

hee hee

(I'm actually a Texan by birth, but gladly have adopted myself into the Zonie's family. *smile*)

I am a Steelers fan and as one, loathe the Cowboys. However, I always liked Tom Landry. He was a class act, agreed.

So how was your trip to Home Depot?

poke the kitty (giggle) (snort)

this blogs gonna lose its pg rating

ReformingGeek said...

@Quirky - I always knew your heart belonged in Texas and yes, we love our PEE-CONN pies. Please send me a piece of yours!

@Unfinished - We have not made it out to HD yet!

@Nooter - Leave Kitty alone, Nooter. Poor thing.

Me-Me King said...

Unfortunately, I was unable to book a flight for your T'Day feast. However, there's plenty of time for a Christmas flight....see ya then!

Unknown said...

I love Mexican food. I cook some but nothing compares to authentic Mexican food. I could eat it every day, not just the holidays. That is my idea of Thanksgiving!

ReformingGeek said...

@Me-me - See you on Christmas for Turkey and Dressing at my sister-in-laws.

@ettarose - Amen!

Moonrayvenne said...

I'm glad you had a good holiday.
For a minute, I thought your hubby found a pic of me, but I have blonde hair...LOL!
Poor kitty! Just roll him around for awhile & he'll be
The only place I went shopping was to the grocery store. I could never stand outside overnight with a bunch of overstuffed, anxious people killing each other trying to get a $10 toy! UGH!

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

Yes, we Canadians are so much more civilized and yet, extremely proud of our October Thanksgiving, which everyone knows is the REAL Thanksgiving.

Mama-Face said...

Oh hey, how WAS the Mexican Food? Waiting for recipes.

I see football and my eyes glaze over. Cute kitty though; hearts and all. bahaha. Never thought I'd say that.

I was a littl behind on some comments, so I'm just seeing this today. Happy Thanksgiving (belated). We traveled to DC for the holiday. It was very relaxing.
