Today is Thanksgiving but we had our big dinner yesterday and we just have left-overs for dinner today and turkey sandwiches for lunch for the next few days! Here are the home-made pumpkin pies we baked( pumpkin pies are my all-time fave. pie!) and we also had my father-in-law over over for dinner as well. He’s a nice guy and I’ve always liked him. He’s 84 now and lives in a nursing home. An interesting fact about him,too: he didn’t learn to speak English until he was 21 and he only has 1 leg but he doesn’t like his artificial leg and prefers to not use it. We went around the diningroom table saying what we’re thankful for and of course the boys had to say something stupid, like the 20 YR old who goes, “I’m thankful for our Dear Leader Kim Jong Un, and his glorious army” and then he said,”Oh, and I’m thankful that the 19 YR old( who’s away at university) isn’t here with us….how’s THAT for my offensive thing to say?”
Here is a picture of some of our food. We had a whole turkey, 2 stuffed turkey breasts, 2 hams, a Tofurky( I laugh every time I hear that, “Tofurky”, it’s such a funny word!) for the 14 YR old who’s a vegetarian, and it looked like a haggis and tasted like sawdust,baked potatoes, mini potatoes, mashed potatoes, fries, peas,corn, stuffing,buns, and pumpkin pie! We gorged ourselves and the 16 YR old made funny name tags for everyone’s place-settings such as “Sir——-of Pigs”, “Lady of Awesomeness”, “The Cookie Goddess”,etc. and the 20 YR old’s friend scolded him for bringing his phone to the table and talking on his phone at the table and told him he was “rude”(just like I did, only I worded it, “Don’t be such a loser!”) and I noticed one of our Jesus pictures in the front hallway had been modified: He now has a CIGARETTE in His hand;I found out the 20 YR old had drawn it and taped it on. My hubby wouldn’t stop laughing.
I also heard on the news there’s some talk of possibly making voting mandatory(like it is in Australia) which is the exact OPPOSITE of democracy, but not surprising considering how Fascist this country has become; they’re pissed off the last election turnout was only 60-something percent, and they probably only want to force people to vote as that’s where they get people for jury duty; from the voter’s registry.The election is exactly a week today! I just hope anyone but the Liberals win.
I also decided if I end up hearing from my doc I have something terminal I’m not going to do dialysis or chemo or anything that makes you wish you were dead, is worse than the disease,and makes you so sick you can’t enjoy what time you DO have left; I’ll just let it take it’s course and I’ll go to the Caribbean and die there(I want to die somewhere that makes me happy)and then I can be cremated there and have my ashes scattered there. There’s no way I want to die in THIS shit-hole! I want to die on the beach, with the sun on my face, listening to Reggae music.
