Yeah, That

I hate cranberry sauce. Meh re: turkey.
I don't like the pecans in pecan pie. (Why can't it just be a pie with carmelized brown gooey stuff?)
Green beans and peas--two thumbs down.
Gravy is gross.
I wish someone would make stuffing without any mushrooms.
I merely tolerate mashed potatoes; I fill up on dinner rolls.

And yet this year I am thankful for it all, for my family big and small, my friends. For my job and autumn leaves, giraffe socks, words like chickpea and saucy, lassitude, inky, thistle and frock. I am thankful for nutella and The Real Housewives of Everywhere, the smell of privet, tangerines, naked ladies (the flowering bulb), the sounds of tennis, Blackbird, for humor, for you. Thank you Great Big World of the Absurd and Beyond, how I do love you. (I am also exceedingly thankful the following has not yet happened to me:

)
Happy Happy Everyone.

that is just plain weird. i mean...it's not so much the farting..i fart, no shit, at least 40 times a day and not once do i fall down dead like that. maybe like a death rattle that was a death fart. the last bit of life squeezed out of her and then like kaiser soze..(poof) she was gone.

i'm suspicious of the twit in the cream suit; staring straight ahead, flipping her papers as if its every day that her co-worker takes down the set with fainting gas. i'd check that bitch's purse for the visine dropper. www.snopes.com/medical/myths/visine.asp

Blackbird has to be on of my most favorite Beatles songs ever. I don't put mushrooms in my stuffing. And I wish I could omit the brocolli out of the brocolli dish I'm making and just eat the cheesy, fried onion, ritz crackery goodness. Happy turkey day!!

There is such a thing like pecan pie without the pecans. It's called Tarte au Sucre (or Sugar pie). It's a French-Canadian desert.

I'm thankful for you by the way!

Um, what the hell is wrong with you? You just named so many delicious foods, minus the turkey. You are insane, woman. And, btw, I'm dying for the diagnosis on that woman. Why did she faint and what was with that weird air fart?

That's it. Next year, my house for Thanksgiving. I will make it a meal you are thankful for.
Anyhoo--I am thankful for you.

Well, if I did that on TV, I would have to quit my job and have plastic surgery to make myself unrecognizable.

Ditto on all the bullshit Thanksgiving food. Just pass the wine.

Happy Day, yo.

Personally I think she fainted out of sheer embarrassment. I would.

Happy Thanksgiving! I hate pumpkin and pecan (or peekin, as my grandmother called it) pie, but I'm totally going to try that Sugar Pie another commenter mentioned....

My best college friend was from Virginia and she made something called "clear pie." it was just the brown gooey stuff--no pecans.

krista said...

you could have a nutella themed thanksgiving next year. i don't see the problem with that.

Annie Empiric said...

she farted! and then she fainted! Wow.

I also love the Real Housewives of Every and Anywhere and feel guilty for leaving them off my list of all the things that got me through the year. Sorry ladies!!!
