I know, it’s a little early, but we might as well get this thread started now.November 24, 2008 at 7:09 pm #44524
Poor Alyosha, her Thanksgiving was weeks ago!November 24, 2008 at 7:41 pm #44525
Yep. Indeed. ^^
May your cranberry sauces be sweet and your stuffing not afflicted with food poisoning.
I realised this year that Canadians get the Monday off, while Americans have Columbus Day or something on that Monday and they have Thanksgiving and the Friday afterwards off too. Something is obviously very, very, wrong here.
*is still trying to convinced her family that turkey is clichéd and, say, hummus and pita bread would be preferable* “I’ll tell you–I don’t know. But it’s a tradition!”
A very happy Thanksgiving to you all!November 24, 2008 at 8:15 pm #44526November 24, 2008 at 9:03 pm #44527
Ooh, Alyosha, are you a hummus and pita bread lover, too? We’ll have to talk in another thread. :lol:November 25, 2008 at 2:57 pm #44528
*doesn’t actually like cranberry sauce, turkey, or stuffing…* So I avoid it all except I tolerate the turkey and hope for a wing.
The best part of Thanksgiving is cream spinach.
We’re going down to my uncle’s house this week. It tends to be pretty boring. I have thirteen boy cousins who are all video game addicts and don’t care at all for their girl cousins. I have one girl cousin but she and her three brothers live in TX so aren’t going to be there, and she’s some six years younger than I. Most of my nine aunts and uncle’s (two of them won’t be there) and pretty boring and for conversations just ask questions that normal grown-ups ask homeschholers “Are you socialized? Did you have class today? Do you even know anything?” Except one of my uncles is fun. He likes some books especially LotR so we might spend the day watching those movies in between eating turkey, sweet potatoes, cream spinach, rice pudding (blech, sorry Gramma!), and apple pie (way better than pumpkin pie (and my grandmother makes it with “sugar in the raw,” Alyosha, invade, EDIT: the iPod’s automatic spell check hates me, you were wondering). What fun, eh?November 25, 2008 at 3:53 pm #44529
I’m not a big fan of turkey, either.November 25, 2008 at 4:25 pm #44530
I’m fine with turkey, but I don’t like canned cranberry sauce or my grandmother’s stuffing, even if it is a special family recipe. I think she considers it treason not to like her stuffing.November 25, 2008 at 4:52 pm #44531
I’m a turkey lover, although I’m always looking for new ways of eating it.
Thanksgiving food is pretty much all good where I’m concerned.November 25, 2008 at 9:29 pm #44532
There is a legend that my grandma used to put liver in her stuffing…but presumably she doesn’t now. (If she does I’d rather not know about it, because it really is decent stuffing.) *is not a particular fan of turkey either* It’s more fun to serve it at church dinners like last week than it is to eat it, especially when the people fill up their plates to the very brim and then are insulted when the turkey touches the salad. ^_~ Long live hummus and pita bread!
Video game addicts? Thirteen of them? Oy! Poor Owan.November 25, 2008 at 10:01 pm #44533
Alyosha said:Video game addicts? Thirteen of them? Oy! Poor Owan.
Yes, poor me, poor me. Though. I’m not sure about three of my cousins. The ones from TX. I only see them about once every other year or once a year were as I see most of my other cousins (on my dad’s side we’re talking) like three times a year so I have not observed them enough to tell whether or not they are video game addicts but I believe atleast one of the three is. There is certainty that nine of my cousins are. (If you think I can’t count: one of my cousins is three and has down syndrome so he doesn’t play video games.)
Aww. Liver isn’t all that bad. I think I like it about as much as turkey.November 25, 2008 at 10:07 pm #44534
I don’t believe I’ve ever had liver and have no desire to.November 25, 2008 at 10:18 pm #44535
Unplug the game and throw ‘em some books. A Thanksgiving they’ll never forget, at least for the boredom you created!
Alyosha, do you put anything else with your hummus/pitas? Have you ever had falafels?November 25, 2008 at 10:19 pm #44536
That’s no fun, Sarah. :wink:
Uh…not a good idea, Jordan. These cousins of mine have a strong dislike for books.November 25, 2008 at 10:55 pm #44537
LoL, then how ’bout a video game that’s a book in disguise…
