i heart thanxgiving

as a recovering (methodist) minister's daughter and full time athiest, i feel that i should be exempt from having to do the holiday thing. apparently no one else thinks that's a good idea. today at work i had to help deck the halls, as it were. not quite with boughs of holly but i can assure you, it was tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lame.

normally decorating puts me in a foul mood until after new years when i've had a chance to get seriously blotto and forget the hell that is thanxmawanzanakah*fireworks**fakesnow*. this year, however, the baubles haven't irked me quite so much. probably because i'm reeeeeeally looking forward to thanxgiving. (the "x" stands for "xtra special" BWAH-HAA-HAAA!) because thanxgiving means lots and lots of mexican food! like this!

thanksgiving feast!

leff and i add a new tradition every year. so besides the food, horror movies and the start of dvd season (we avoid regular television like the plague during the holidays), aught diggity five will have pumpkin beer and carved melons a la t eh shed and maybe festive legwarmers for the cats.

nah, i'm kidding about that last part. (or am i? mwah-haaa-haaa!)

and now a moment of silence for the brave avocados that will be giving their lives so that we may enjoy the festive thanXgiving grocamole.


bless you little avos. bless you each and every one.

Melon carving is what all the cool kids want. Fo' sho'!

I think I'll add melon-carving to our festivities ... I'm still a complete sucker for the traditional t-giving fare that I'm declaring a moratorium on the veggie diet for the two days of t-giving. Plus the vegetarian thing just seems to confuse my poor mother ... I figure it will be easier on her if I just go along with the program. I'm flexible.

totally, shed!

pants and i are going to make it a national sensation by new year's! :D!

hell yes about the turkey, pants!! it's nice being a flexitarian, innit? i think i'd die if i couldn't have turkey.

well, ok, not die. but i'd get more headaches than i do.
