happy thanksgiving! (what are you doing?)

i work from home and my parents live 3 miles away, that somewhat takes away from the thanksgiving novelty. looks like it'll be a weekend of food, wine, tv, and video games here. actually started a little early, put the usual work on pause and been playing a lot of retro games.

doing well. at 33 i have financial freedom and my ideal career (i work alone, nobody tells me what to do). being single is starting to get old though.

anyway, gobble gobble ot

Thanksgivings always in Mississippi for me even though all my family lives in Louisiana. We have a large ranch in MS. The parents cook and my cousins and I sit by the bonfire, ride four wheelers or our 8 horses. #rednecks lol.

funny story, one of the most memorable thanksgivings ever: 8th grade in vegas. circus circus was PACKED. the parents were too busy gambling, so me and 3 friends had thanksgiving dinner at mcdonald's (eating on the steps, restaurant was full). i had a big mac combo. and then we proceeded to kick ass in wrestlefest and street fighter.

thanksgiving '97: first time ever being completely wasted. was back in town from college. buddy threw a house party. i decided it was time to drink (finally). worked up a good buzz, unfortunately no more alcohol. so i started icing off random drinks around the house. passed out a little later on the carpet. had to barf, was thinking nobody would notice, so i spilled it right there and rolled over. a few seconds later i hear yelling and scrambling. woke up face in the sink.

another one: 2000, straight out of college, i was working in tampa. had a bunch of brits on the team and they all stayed. so we drove out to miami and the keys and played all weekend (went to at least 1 nudie bar). i think i ate at denny's that year. stayed at a youth hostel at the keys, that wasn't too great.

some of the other years, i was alone ('05 to '10 or so). usually drank all day and fired up a porterhouse.

the turkey-on-a-big-table gets old after about 15 times (most of those have been forgotten)

cliffs: lighten up dude, it's just a 4-day weekend

Your style of writing is very similar to someone I've seen here before...

Wow, didn't expect to see someone from my neck of the woods on here. While I don't live in the Santa Cruz mountains anymore, I spent most of my youth in Boulder Creek.



As for me... I'm taking Friday off as a paid vacation day in combination with Thursday already being paid/off, and will be enjoying the 4 days off with friends, family, and relaxing.

Which feels weird, since I'm just returning to work after a two week vacation. I probably should have just taken these next three days off, too.

debating is I should close up for the day or not. Thanksgiving is not the same after my dad passed away 5 years ago and my kid brother just got locked up last week on trafficking charges.....Happy Holidays..
