Today I thought I’d eat a turkey, cranberry, and stuffing sandwich and watch Thankskilling on Netflix. Not only do I love Eva Halloween for keeping Halloween alive all year, I also love her for introducing me to this movie. Even if I don’t like it – I love the idea of watching it on Thanksgiving. This doesn’t mean I’m not grateful for stuff.
But I might get to hang out with my dear friend and her mom instead. I’m grateful for that. She came to the rescue five years ago on X-mas when I had nothing going on. While not a fan of Thanksgiving and X-mas, I do usually visit relatives.
Five years ago on X-mas I went to this friend’s house and had the X-mas of the century. It involved Bloody Marys. Stupid me topped those off with antihistamine because of my allergy to the dog and had to be ‘walked’ home. At least I remembered it all – oh wait – no I didn’t. “Did you like the gift that I bought for you?” I asked the next day. “I opened it in front of you. Don’t you remember?” She said.
For the next fifty years, with a little help from my friends, I’m going to piece together all of the events, incidents, and ‘interludes’ that alcohol viciously purloined from me.
I hope you and your friend have a great day! 😉
Thanks Carla — I wound up spending it with my g’ma — but it was a great day. I hope you enjoyed yours!
Have a wonderful day aunt Sandee. Happy thanksgiving
Happy Thanksgiving no matter what. The other 3 members of my family have said, over the last 2 days, that they don’t like Thanksgiving. These holidays put pressure on us all.
I guess it is slowly dawning on me, through your writing here and in your book, that you are sober. I am not sure it’s okay to write about it, so feel free to delete (though I hate when people delete my amazing words!).
You must know that I can’t keep up always with your blog though I want to and I love your writing. So I must miss things. I’m sort of slow, too.
Anyway, I’m sober, 25 years. 25 years the day after Thanksgiving.
Have a good day no matter what you do. Take lotsa showers.
25 years, wowwww! I haven’t had a drink in five years, but I’ve been sober off and on since ’85. We have some things in common now don’t we!?
I hope you’re enjoying your day! Thank you for stopping by. Keeping up with blogs is a task especially you guys with kids and spouses. It’s just me here and I don’t have a high pressure job so I can manage. But I imagine it won’t always be this way for me either.
See you later…
I should probably look up “purloin” just to be absolutely sure that I know what it means…but I think I’m not gonna! I loathe the holiday season personally. The more you drink your way through it all, the less you have to compare it to next year!
I have a sad feeling that out of 44 years, I may have completely blacked out 2 or 3. C’est la vie, Sandee! Hopefully I didn’t miss anything really important.
Big Turkey/Stuffing/Cranberry Kiss,
Thanks Dawn! I may have blacked out about that many years as well, or more!
COOL! I’m so happy that we found each other!
I hope your beautifully sober day is totally memorable, even if you do stay home and watch a movie. Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanks Mary — hope you enjoyed yours with your father!
You clearly are grateful for stuff;)
I am indeed!
Recovering lost memories could be a dangerous business. You might discover that you’re the next Jason Bourne.
Hmm…now wouldn’t that be something else huh?
Thankskilling is AMAZING. I also hate the holidays with a fiery passion.
I gotta tell you I couldn’t get into it. But I liked the idea of watching it on Thanksgiving since I do in fact just like you, hate the holidays just as fiercely. You’re a woman after my own heart as they say!
Heh. I’m afraid my round-up of Christmas-themed horror probably won’t be much better. I think those directors are counting on people just looking for an excuse not to talk to relatives for 90 minutes! 🙂
That’s a good thing sometimes…
purloined is a great word.
Im stoned, but Im pretty sure thats the word you used last.
Ahahahaha! You’re stoned and I’m jealous that you’re stoned — yep that’s the word! Enjoy!
Oh btw Evelyn — best comment EVER!
