Just went to the local senior center for thanksgiving. Good stuff. Turkey, Cranberry sauce, stuffing, sweet potatoes, I love it all! And I will be hanging out with some other people later this afternoon, so it should be a good thanksgiving.
Had my Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey and all the trimmings, stuffing, corn, mashed potatoes, peas, and lots of gravy. It was delicious. We made Pecan pie and Pumpkin Pie for dessert. Looking forward to a piece of that Pecan pie with ice cream.
^ yeah I get your point, used to feel the same way. But using that ideology you don't beleive in holidays in general. It doesn't mean you only do it on that day. Christmas is a day for celebrating the birth of jesus, but that doesn't mean that all the other days you don't care (if you're christian, just an example), just like on other days than thanksgiving you can still be thankful. Holidays like thanksgiving are just for reminding those who don't think about it all the time and spending time to concentrate and celebrate something we might think about everyday, but not nessecarily talk about and commemorate everyday.
Thanksgiving also has a historical purpose of honoring the hospitality some Indians showed american settlers. There's nothing to not beleive in there, at least. Unless you're an ungrateful butthead lol. Which I doubt cause you said you give thanks everyday!
We had Thanksgiving somewhere besides our house for once (no one else had a big enough house for years), at my cousin's place. The food was good and everything, but we were there for 4 hours. I'm not a big enough talker to be somewhere that long doing only that.
I decided to go to Walmart later, around 10, to try and pick up some cheap games, but all the interesting things were already gone (after like 20 minutes, I was surprised). Apparently, when they advertise those games cheap, they only have certain ones on sale acquired specifically for that purpose. Like, the Gear of War 3 that was $60 yesterday is still $60; only 'Black Friday' Gears of War 3 they get from the supplier are $30. I'm wondering how many they actually had.
Anyway, going to have another get together this weekend on my dad's side of the family. Hopefully all goes well.
Had a great day. My cousins from Texas are in town so I got to see them in the morning. We had dinner at 2:30, relaxed for a little bit and then had other family members over for games at 7. I then left at 11 to go shopping.
Well, mine was great! I read for most of the day, peeled potatoes, melted the rubber off the bottom of my sneakers (no joke), played soccer with professionals, then sat in my basement with nine or ten other people and ate barbequed turkey and potatoes on folding chairs. Then we went upstairs, watched Punkin Chunkin and ate pie, then went on youtube with my nook and watched "30 ways to annoy Bellatrix Lestrange" "30 ways to annoy Harry Potter haters' and "30 ways to get kicked out of Wal-Mart" until 11:00.
Best. Thanksgiving. EVAR!!!
