I don't need no stinkin' tryptophan to have fun.

OK. OK. I know I have been remiss in updating my blog postings...I have no excuse unless you count sitting at home debating what I am going to do for the upcoming Canadian Thanksgiving holiday.

After hemming and hawing for three weeks I finally decided just this morning. It came to me in a sudden flash while lying in bed.

As the radio alarm clock droned on I listened excitedly while the CBC morning host interviewed two local television personalities about their own Thanksgiving plans. They, like me, will be watching a turkey roast – live – on television.

The word around town is that this roasting turkey will surpass the burning log made famous by Christmas holiday because the turkey will require at least two, maybe three, bastings. And we will get to see them all.

So, I convinced TW that we should invite friends over to watch the roasting together. We are both excited about the prospect of placing bets on the basting timeline, the size of the disembodied hand managing the basting process, and the style of basting tool. I told TW that I think we can take our friends for $10 Canadian ($9.10 U.S.) but she thinks we can take them for much, much more. Oh, how I love Thanksgiving.
