Happy happy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

When I left the talent show last night, the turkey had just started thawing in the sink. If it's not still a cube of ice, and if the cat didn't maul it in the night, we'll have a proper Thanksgiving dinner some time!

Just like your great aunt, I'm bringing jello salad with fruit entombed in its wiggling depths. I don't even eat the stuff, but that's something I need to see on the table or else it just isn't Thanksgiving. I suspect that most volunteers will sneak into the kitchen at some point today to add their one special thing. We're happy to be here, but today we're all missing our own people.

Green bean casserole may be the next best thing.

Around the Flaker table, its just not Thankgiving without a huge bowl of whipped cream with maraschino cherries and pineapples. Nobody eats it anymore, but its.... TRADITION!
