So they're not making my dad's famous Thanksgiving dinner until they come back on Saturday. Still, those were some great sandwiches!

Happy Turkeyday, everyone!

My Oldest sister came over and her family had Thanksgiving here, and they brought me in food, because I don't go to the kitchen in the main part of the house anymore because of steps. My mom was invited over to my brother's house in NH for Thanksgiving.
Had a nice time.

(Except for getting sick on a piece of venison that was slightly larger than my finger - I love venison, but it doesn't like me.)

My family is from the Caribbean, so we don't have a traditional, sitting around the dinner table, Thanksgiving. We have an outdoor party with music and dancing and whatnot. So anyway, my brother invited his girlfriend, and since it was cold, her nipples were hard the entire night. My family has now nicknamed her Nippy. So... yeah... that's my Thanksgiving 2012.

In other words, it was a bit nippely out that night.

I was going to knit, but I think I'll play video games instead. Pirate Jim wouldn't want a bed, he'd rather see me having fun playing Lumines: Electronic Symphony. What a nice cat

I've had Nikki one week today and she's still following me around like a puppy
She's a real sweetheart.
Oh, we found out there were dogs next door when we went exploring new places, we did not like that.

My Thanksgiving was quiet. The Amazing Spider-Man on Blu Ray with my new beautiful television. We had no turkey or ham since my Sister is a vegetarian, so we had lasagna. It was pretty damn good. My Dad is quite the cook. Black Friday was a disaster. We went to Wal-Mart. No deals worth having (Amazon topped them anyways) and people were ever so rude. I've never seen so many desperate grandmas. Oh well. Also does not help I suffer from social anxiety. So, I was jumping out of my clothes.

Trust me dude, Wal-Mart is always a bust with deals, unless you're the first dozen in line.

Try online, there are awesome deals everywhere! Especially on Amazon.

people never cease to amaze me

Police: Mass. man left tot in car to shop on Black Friday, went home with new TV but no boy

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Police say a Massachusetts man left his girlfriend's 2-year-old son in a car while he went shopping for Black Friday bargains, then went home with his new 51-inch flat screen television and left the toddler behind.

Police, alerted by store security, found the boy asleep in the vehicle in a Kmart parking lot at about 1:30 a.m. Friday.

They forced their way into the car and took the boy to the hospital as a precaution.

Meanwhile, they tracked the man to his Springfield home.

He told police he lost the boy while shopping, panicked and called someone else for a ride. The boy's mother was working.

The 34-year-old man was not arrested and not immediately charged, but police say they expect to charge him with reckless endangerment to a child.

I'm the same. I can't shop in public without my meds. But at least witnessing a Grandma fight would have been pretty sweet.

My brother told me a story about some chick who waited in line for a really long time to get a phone, and when she found out it was $50 and not free she threw a fit and left.

I refuse to shop on Black Friday. I'd end up feeling claustrophobic and irritable.

**** that day and those greedy, awful people.

I actually wrote an anti black friday post on Facebook and someone told me I was being a little harsh, lol. I don't think I was harsh enough. I could have mentioned the thousands stuck without power on Thanksgiving who were grateful to just get by and spend time with their families eating what they could get their hands on, while these good for nothing fools spent the night fighting over such little technological pleasures like some stupid Smart Phone. I kidd you not, a smart phone... here's the proof;

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:



EDIT:

I had to add this one... just, pure madness. I mean, I'm proud to be an American. These people, aren't.

In a world with Cyber Monday, why do people still care about Black Friday?

Because they're idiots, plain and simple. There's no other explanation needed, lol.

Anyone down south know that the Grey Cup is being played today? Toronto Argonauts vs. the Calgary Stampeders? Going to be a good one.

Is it? I don't know. I really can't stand Calgary, but I do want to see Kevin Glenn win a cup. But i don't want the rest of the team to win one.

I don't know if I'm even going to bother watching. I don't really care which team wins. Even if it means I have to miss Justin Bieber and Carly-rae Jepson at halftime.

Wow, this Black Friday sounds nuts. We have Boxing Day after Christmas, but I'm not sure it gets to those levels of craziness.

I worked at an electronic store for a couple of years. Working on boxing day was crazy. I basically stood in one spot and pointed to where things were as crowds rushed past me. But even in that craziness there was still a modicum of human respect and dignity.
