Happy thanksgiving everyone!
happy dead animal carcass day!
Not something we celebrate in Spain, but happy Thanksgiving.
word happy thanksgiving everyone..(^_^)
Mine wasn't happy since this afternoon but before that everything was going well I sent out a mass text to my OT peeps earlier today I hope it all found you doing well!
Im freezing my ass off in chicago. Thanksgiving was sooooo good. I heart when my extended irish south side family makes thanksgiving.
I need to head up towards Chi town one of these days! I want to go thru the museum of sci and industry, sears tower, shedd aquarium and such again.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday.
I typically get a lil sad for Thanksgiving, because I'm used to doing all of the cooking back home but here in West Africa we don't celebrate the holiday--even the embassy! So like last year, I just made a (turkey) pizza and called it a day.
This year, I have a few friends from college who will be here for the next couple of years... An alum, his wife, and three kids (damn they really did breed early). Well, the husband had to travel to London for a conference, so the wife was here by herself and wasn't going to do anything. So remembering how sad I was last year, I left the office early and hit like 5 markets. After finding only one turkey (a small 15 pound thing that was priced $250...which they then kept), I decided to purchase two large chickens which eventually bookended a heaping helping of homemade stuffing, accompanied by my candied yams, corn pudding, grilled cabbage (the only 'greens' that I could find), yeast rolls, gravy, and lattice peach-apple pie. So I surprised them with thanksgiving, and it was wonderful!
i want to eat with you guys lol
you made me hungry
im glad you made it work
She was sooo happy. Adjusting to this place is really hard for the first couple months...as you think you're going crazy! You believe EVERYONE around you in stupid, and allergic to 'logic'. So I wanted to help her have a lil bit of normalcy. It was really nice, and helped me too! It was a wonderful Thanksgiving.
And I really felt awesome, too!
