#4044: It tastes so f--kin' good, you'll want to punch yourself in the face

That line is best when it's said in Sean Connery's voice.

Dinner today was the traditional. I brined a turkey breast section last night and cooked it today; we had real mashed potatos, real gravy, carrots, and crescent rolls.

The turkey didn't have a popper in it (it was supposed to) so I had to dig out a meat thermometer, but that wasn't really much trouble and the turkey was cooked to near perfection. Tender, juicy, and flavorful.

I made plenty of gravy this time and we actually have leftover. Whee!

Otherwise, we didn't do anything today and we liked it.

Well--we watched the Thanksgiving ep of WKRP in Cincinnati before I started cooking, and after dinner we watched The Incredibles, and the first half of Christmas in Connecticut before I had enough energy to get up off the sofa and go to the computer.

Tomorrow--hoo boy. I'm glad I got a lot of rest today, because tomorrow is going to be something else. Saturday and Sunday are not going to be any picnics, either, especially after tomorrow; most of my hours for the week are concentrated in those three days.

I'll live, though.

Unlike comet ISON, which came apart while rounding the sun. It would have been a sight to behold if it had survived--but seeing as its perihelion was a mere 744,000 miles, well...not much could get that close to the sun and survive the trip, particularly not a "dirty snowball".

Well, anyway, the holiday season is off and running, and the "black Friday" sales have already begun, and some of my coworkers are--even now--manning the registers.

Wish me luck, tomorrow.

    Some fatuous pinhead on the radio said that Chicago was ready for "looting and other forms of protest". But you know what? It's fine. We no longer…

  • #7605: I don't even need lettuce any longer

    See, the tacos I make at home blow away any tacos I've ever had anywhere else. Lettuce used to be necessary, but now it just gets in the way, so I…
