Food Feast!

screen-shot-10-11-16-at-03-20-pm Since Monday was Thanksgiving, I thought I’d put up a couple of my friends’ Thanksgiving dinner feasts up here on the blog so you can see how they celebrated. Here in the first photo is my friend F and his Thanksgiving spread. When my pharmacist friend saw the turkey that my oldest made she said, “I think I have fallen in love with your son!” (oh, B, you are just too funny!!)

Yeah, I know, ours is looking pretty “shabby” in comparison,but it’s not a contest…..In USA Thanksgiving is about the Pilgrims coming and oppressing the Indians but here it’s about giving thanks for a good harvest, thanking God, and spending time with family and sharing a good meal.

As you can see, the common theme here was turkey and then everything else varied. My friend I also said that his mother has the same tradition that I do every YR,too: having everyone go around the dinner table each saying what they are most thankful for. For me it’s always the same: that we are healthy,and that God has always provided our needs and kept us safe, no matter the circumstances. Of course my kids make it as offensive as possible, like saying they’re “thankful” for the Third Reich, Donald Trump, AIDS,etc.. you get the idea.

As well, poor Buddy has diarrhrea, I’m sure from all the left-over ham and turkey rinds (and we’ve had turkey and ham sandwiches for lunch, Turkey a-la King for dinner, etc.. lots of left-overs!) and he even did one in the rec-room he couldn’t hold it,and once he realized it he came and “told” me right away, whimpering and ran straight for the door and as soon as I opened it he ran out so fast and still spent a good 10 minutes shitting,and still had more during his next walk, and the 13 YR old has a cold now,too, but at least she made it thru Thanksgiving; usually someone’s always sick over holidays!

The 9 YR old was mad he had to help me with the TV as well and again told me how stupid I am and when I said I know I am he huffed, “But you’re even more stupid than you should  be!!” and I heard the 17 YR old tell him the other day that it’s “not nice” to call people stupid and the second-oldest telling him the same thing,and that it “makes them feel bad.” My family is eager for me to die as well and are hoping I do die before I’m 50 (I turn 50 in January) like I’ve always had a feeling I will and my hubby’s always making cracks and snide remarks about it and they’ve even planned out how they’re going to spend my life insurance $$$$, such as being able to finally afford to move and describing what the “new house” will be like(even though the $$$$ is supposed to last for YRS, over time, and not all be used up at once), etc. and they discuss it right in front of me which I think is just disrespectful, tacky,classless, and rude,and it hurts my feelings.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving2015  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?”

Thanksgiving20152 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.
