Just a note that you won't be seeing me around here until at least next week sometime.
I've got some stuffing to do.
(points at crotch)
You know, with it being Thanksgiving and all.
For those of you who don't live in the United States, let me explain the tradition of Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is the time of year where we celebrate the feast shared between the early Colonial settlers and the local Native Americans.
There, they shared a meal of maize (corn), turkey (wildebeest) and Stove Top Stuffing (instead of potatoes).
This occurred shortly before the colonists killed almost all of the Native Americans.
The near-genocide resulted in a law suit years later that allowed the surviving ones to open a casino anywhere they damn well pleased...
...causing thousands to become addicted to gambling.
This, in turn, caused them to become depressed, alcoholic, homeless and eventually suicidal.
Ah, the joy of it all.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
In the meantime, check out my new poll on the left.
(yes...my poll hangs slightly to the left)
Regardless, I'm sure we'll all be back with some wonderful dinner-table stories to tell.
For some reason, all conversations at my dinner table end up discussing the bowel activity - or lack thereof - of the older people.
Nothing like discussing the color and shape of your stool in between "pass the stuffing!"
I can't WAIT to get old.
