Yay! It's BYOC time. Draz finally got one up and I finally got here to do it. The planets must be aligned. :D
1. What is your FAVORITE part of Thanksgiving?
Astonishingly enough, cooking Thanksgiving dinner. I know, half of you just fell over in shock. But it's true. This is the one meal that I actually look forward to cooking, every year. After that, it is turkey. Golly, I loves me some turkey! :D
2. How many Thanksgiving family events will you attend?
Zip. Zero. Zilch. Nada. I do Thanksgiving at home. With my husband and son. We send food over to the In-laws. I wish that I were close enough to have Thanksgiving with my family. *sigh* I wouldn't mind having people over. Maybe next year, when we live in a bigger house and my budget isn't so disgustingly tight.
3. What’s your biggest Thanksgiving tradition?
A Jennie-O Oven Ready turkey. No, really! Two minutes from freezer to oven and make my sides. No thawing, no rinsing, no slippery turkey carcass sliding across my kitchen floor. (Think I'm joking? You have never seen me do a turkey the old fashioned way, have you?) I don't have to worry about timing, temperatures and basting. And I have a perfect bird, every time. Now, that is a tradition I could pass down to future generations. Except that Patrick isn't planning to have kids. Nor does he cook Thanksgiving dinners. So, it began with me and it dies with me. :P
4. Do you Black Friday shop the day after Thanksgiving?
Oh, hellz fucking no! I don't do black Friday. I sleep in, then start decorating for Christmas. I don't like crowds, I don't appreciate being jostled, pushed, stomped on or having things taken from my hands because someone else thinks that they "deserve" that item more than I do. I don't consider TVs and so forth Christmas gifts. So I don't need to be first in line at Hell Mart to get one for forty-nine dollars.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog world.
In real life: I suck.
In Blog World: I suck.
