    Only slightly Thanksgiving-related

    One of my best friends absolutely LOVES to play the card game Skip Bo. She plays it every holiday with her family, and almost every time I go to her house, we end up playing. A couple of weeks ago, I saw a copy of Skip Bo on eBay that was from 1967, the first year the game came out, in the original red velvet box back when they were still playing cards, and not the modern skip-bo colors. It was only $30 so I snagged it, and got it in the mail a couple of days ago.

    I had been building up the surprise by telling her I already got "her gift" in the mail, and it was the best gift I've ever given and whatnot. She seemed really excited.

    And then I go to her house after Thanksgiving for more Thanksgiving, and of course we end up playing Skip Bo. At one point, after I've had a few drinks and feeling pretty drunk, she starts talking about how she saw a 1967 copy of Skip Bo online in the original red velvet box, and she really wanted to buy it. So of course I have to cover.

    "I don't know. $30 sounds a little too much for something like that."
    "I never said how much it was."

    I managed to play it off by just acting like I was surprised that my guess at the price was correct. But now I know that she's thinking about buying it.

    So she ended up giving me a ride home, and I told her that I'm just going to have to give her her gift early, and she'll understand afterwards. Once she opened it, she cracked up, and loved the gift.

    My original plan was to sit around eating leftovers and watching the Turkey Day marathon, but some guys I kinda know were like come over!

    And I did, with Haechi, and the weather was beautiful, and it was lovely, and we played soccer in the yard with the dog, and ate dinner together.

    Group hug motherfuckers.

    That's really cruel, you should have used a ball.

    My job is only giving us hams. I mean, it's free so I shouldn't complain but come the fuck on. Ham? On Thanksgiving? Get that shit out of here and bring me some goddamned turkey, you monsters

    However, I am getting doubletime and a half so I guess I'll let it slide.

    edit: also, we had to bring everything else. They brought us ham only

    We got into this on FB a little bit (that was me), but ham is goddamned victory!
    I hate ham.

    Go to hell. :p

    Instead of pumpkin I made butternut squash pie this year, it's very very good.

    Also, There's a good chance my stomach may burst. I ate so much smoked turkey and so many cottage cheese rolls.

    I don't regret it.

    My father tried to invite himself to Thanksgiving. People stared at the carving fork, then the knife drawer, then the baseball bat three feet away from him.

    It was really nice to learn I'm not the only one.

    Cross posting my new favorite Thanksgiving anecdote:

    Went to a Thanksgiving get together today. I was the only white person there, everyone else was black.

    We were playing the game Taboo. It's a guessing game where you have a word and try to get other people to guess it without using that specific word or certain related ones.

    The word I got?
    Thug

    The woman acting as ref saw it and laughed and laughed.

    My grandpa fell so I had to come help him up and am waiting for him to get outta the bathroom. He's fine.

    But that pie though.

    IDEAS Thanksgiving hash is a must for some families. Saute onions, then toss in leftover stuffing/dressing, leftover vegetables and turkey — first chopping it all up into small bits. When you add leftover mashed potatoes, the hash takes on a knish/thick-pancake quality. It’s all good.

    Layer leftovers, terrine-style, in a loaf pan greased with cooking oil spray. Top with a layer of mashed sweet potatoes. Bake in a 350-degree oven until the proper temperature is reached (see above).

    Crush together leftover pumpkin/sweet potato and pecan pies; get a good ratio of moist filling to crust. Press into ramekins. Wrap and freeze for future use, or drizzle each one lightly with cream or half-and-half; bake in a 350-degree oven until heated through. Serve with a dollop of yogurt.

    hmmmm

    Most people in my family don't like turkey, so we had duck and venison instead. Plus green beans, white rice, wild rice, cabbage, mashed potatoes, orange sauce for the duck, and a red wine/sour cream thing for the venison.

    Then we decorated gingerbread houses and did the Christmas Card picture. The photo was actually fun this year- my brother talked my mom into setting up a recreation of an old Christmas card, where my brother, sister and I were trying to string popcorn garlands and our youngest sister had half the garland in her mouth.

    It would have been a perfect evening, if during the ginger-bread house decorating my brother hadn't decided to go for shock value.

    Maybe I'll still make a meal when I can, but I dunno. Seems kind of meaningless to do it on just any old day.

    do it!

    I don't have my kids this year for Christmas, but the day I get them back, I'm making a roast chicken with all the stuff!

    Plus, if you do it on any old day, you don't have to be annoyed that the stupid bears couldn't beat the stupid lions!
