Chinese Turkey

I just found something online that if it works out will make spiffy fodder for the gift exchange. It's quirky and actually represents one of the things I really like about the holidays. Of course, there's a chance it won't pan out so there's notta to do but wait.

Other than that, today has been a complete wash more or less. To no surprise, I'm still feeling pretty blah overall. Nothing seems to be going right at the moment and it's like moving around in a perpetual unpleasant daze. I'm only hoping that things start to get better by thanksgiving. The entire family is trekking over to my grandmother's house and my sisters are responsible for making dinner. My mom offered but she was turned down since over the long course of our childhood, her idea of making turkey was simply to put it in the oven and turn the knob. Dry dosen't even begin to describe it.

Anyway, I'm leaving all the prep details to them and have done my best to be completely ignorant of what needs to be done. My usual, and only, contribution to these events is to show up and possibly drag along a boardgame with me to keep people occupied. Other than that, I'm pretty much flotsom in the grand scheme of things.

I still have to make a decision about whether or not to try the black friday sales. I've got notta against camping out for the night waiting for a real bargain, but there's notta I really want in any of the circulars. At most, I would be there in order to resell the stuff on ebay. That's not a horrible reason to do it since I have the time, but a lot will depend on how I'm holding up.

    I've been sort of AWOL ever since Thanksgiving but not for any one particular reason. The holiday went pretty well with everyone trucking over to…
