Football, Feast, Flood and Fatigue

What a day!

Thanksgiving 2008 will go down as one of the more memorable Thanksgivings, ever! Really, I mean it. At least until next year's festivities, of course.

First up, we had some parade action. We had some sort of parade (not Macy's) in Chicago, of which all I can remember is that it was sponsored by McDonald's. Then came the Macy's Day parade and extravaganza - always cool, and I love them balloons. Then we can't forget all the lip-syncing celebs, even Andy Williams got into the game. Finally Santa made his appearance, and it was time for some FOOTBALL.

Okay, until Detroit wins at least ten games in a season, for a minimum of five seasons, they should be banned from playing on Thanksgiving. Dude, they suck! Sorry, but it's true. It was so bad, that I can't remember the score (44-10, I think). That's okay though, Detroit was in it at the kickoff. Ugh. At least it ended in time for some FOOD!

Great turkey this year, and there was some awesome corn, cranberries, yams (or sweet potatoes), some carrots made with bourbon (YUM!), stuffing, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole (Double Yum!). The food was great, as always (Thanks Mom!). Having all the cousins(on Jenni's side, at least) together was, LOUD. But the kids don't get to see each other that often with us all living in different states, and all, so it's all worth it.

Then there was more FOOTBALL, another freaking blowout, what the heck is up with that... Then came the FLOOD, and we weren't even at my house! In a freak accident, somehow the hose/piping under the kitchen sink decided it would like to cause a wee bit of havoc. Success! Oy, what a mess, but we all pitched in and got the mess cleaned up, and the pipes all fixed in due time. Apparently it had something to do with the hot water being too hot. All I know is that it added a little bit of excitement while coming down from the food coma.

Finally, more FOOTBALL, okay the game was another snoozer and blowout. Benjy was extremely happy though as his Philadelphia Eagles kicked some Arizona Cardinal butt! Alas, it was another blowout, which brought on the FATIGUE from crappy FOOTBALL, and now I need to go and get myself some sleep, because Jenni wants to see all about some sort of door-busting thingamajig. I have no idea what she is talking about, only that we have to leave here around five in the morning.

Wait a minute, 5 AM!!

What the heck is up with that?!

Anybody else participating in this foolishness?

Gotta go hit the pillow now, good night.
