It's not even especially good food. Sure, there's some pumpkin pie, and that's okay. But...stuffing and cranberry sauce...? Yeah...okay...and then we have yams, which admittedly aren't so bad, but really not worth fussing over. And of course, the turkey.
Now, I'm sort of a vegetarian...I mean, I'll eat meat, but only if it's so fried, battered, and/or smothered in sauces that you could have swapped it with a hunk of cheddar cheese and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. So maybe this is just me. Or hell, maybe my dad is just terrible at cooking poultry. But I hate turkey. I loathe it. I wouldn't eat it if you paid me. Well, I wouldn't eat it unless you paid me. And even then I'd drown it in mustard first.
The worst part is, we always have a humongous turkey for some reason, so every year we're left with a week's worth of leftover turkey, which, as I believe I mentioned already, I detest. Invariably, my dad will take the leftovers, cook them into some fowl-smelling soup (no pun intended...well, okay, yes, pun intended), and offer it up as dinner every night until Hanukkah...because why would anyone bother to cook something new that I don't hate when there's plenty of old food that I do hate? Naturally, that leaves me with a good week of Hot Pockets and Rice Krispies for dinner.
Hopefully you can see why I'm not a big fan of Thanksgiving or of turkeys in general. Even the wild turkeys that occasionally wander around my neighborhood don't seem do much besides waddle around making annoying clucking noises while you're trying to sleep. So you can probably imagine that I enjoyed having the opportunity to mercilessly pummel turkeys to their painful deaths with heavy, blunt objects during this year's Thanksgiving event.
Revenge is sweeter than any pumpkin pie.
On an unrelated note, I saw New Moon this week. There's really not much to say about it except that it was, like the first movie, very faithful to the book, so if you liked the book, you'd probably like the movie, and if you hated the book, you'd probably hate the movie. The main problem I had was that it was full of copious uncomfortable close-up shots. Not to mention excessive fanservice. "Mmm, yes, I'm so ridiculously good-looking that the camera can't shoot me without going into slow-motion. Ooh, yeah, zoom in a little on my pecs, yeah. Keep drooling, fangirls...I'll probably take my shirt off sometime in the next five minutes." (Ironically, the fanservice probably makes it even more faithful to the book.)
