-Naps. Effing awesome.
-Food again. Good.
Thanksgiving is basically just like every other day for me, except that the entire nation is in on it. So I kind of feel like I'm on to something with my life plan when I hear how much everyone else enjoys the holiday. "It's just eating, and drinking, and laying around! It's great!"
Yes. And if you plan accordingly, every day can be like that.
My family is rolling into town today and I'm stoked! This will be the first official family Thanksgiving that I've hosted. Wine will help.
We have a tradition every year of naming the turkey and then talking to it throughout the morning as it cooks. It's pretty messed up if you think about it. But we've been doing it since I was a little kid, so there's no turning back now. We've never really come up with anything better than "Kimmy Gobbler" but because it's Thanksgiving at my place, I feel it's my duty to give the bird a new name. No ideas yet, but I still have a day to think about it.
Enjoy the holiday.
