But as usual, I’m running late around here.
Today I have to clean the bathrooms and reorganize the
unholy mess that exploded upstairs craft area before I go down to pick up my folks. Oh, and the pumpkin? It was too small, and the cardstock would not adhere well to it, so no Great Pumpkin™ for the table this year. It’s just as well, since we are having a turkey, a ham, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, rolls, cranberry relish, and three pies and a cobbler. There won’t be any room on the table to eat, much less decorate.
Oh, and I never shop on Black Friday, so I shall have time to make this:
Maybe…. as long as my mom is shopping with my sister 😀

I never shop on Black Friday either. I prefer to sleep in while the women-folk head off to fight the crowds. Sounds to me like you’ll still be digesting that Thanksgiving meal when the sun rises on Friday morning. 😀

I hate Black Friday, but I usually get shanghaied into going with my wife. She does the shopping, and I’m there as the hired muscle to get her a path through the crowd.
November 24th, 2011 at 10:11 PM
LOL. My husband uses me as the muscle whenever we are in a crowded, only the strong survive situation

I don’t understand there are no crowds while shopping at Amazon.com.

Is that an advent calendar writ large? in any case, tis a very cool thing!!
If I ever have the money, I would not mind doing the Black Friday thing, at least once, just to say I have done it. That being said, Amazon and NewEgg seem to be the much more hassle free route to go. And they offer “black friday deals” too.

Someone else with a brain !!! No way in h*ll will I go near a store on Friday. I don’t have enough ammo.
And good luck with that clean-up. We’ll clean our area, two days later, it’s exploded all over the place again.

I don’t have enough ammo.
HAHAHAHAHA!!! Wish I did 😀
November 22nd, 2011 at 1:12 PM
I’mma roast a pork tenderloin tonight.
I’ll do the turkey Thursday.
I don’t do side dishes.
And I don’t do shit on Friday.
Except my Al Bundy on a couch impersonation.

Our menus are nearly identical. We get our turkey from a bbq place nearby, perfectly smoked and picked up on Wednesday. Delicious.
The best thing is, we get to host some pilgrims. One brother. A second cousin in the Corps at m&a, with girlfriend and puppy. Couple of my daughter’s friends and another puppy.
I will be found with the puppies. I do have to get the case tumbler off the side board.
Friday is cocoon and leftover day, and now and then to gaze out over the teeming hordes at the malls. Agree with Mitchell on Amazon.
I love this holiday. You gonna post a picture of your calendar?

Spoken like a true teasipper 😉
IF I get it done, yes!
November 22nd, 2011 at 4:28 PM
A real Agro-American would have no trouble. 😛
November 22nd, 2011 at 6:18 PM
I have no trouble sipping tea.
But it seems lately y’all have problems swallowing it 😉
November 22nd, 2011 at 7:17 PM
Harumph! I shall repair to the Queen’s parlor for polite conversation!
November 22nd, 2011 at 9:30 PM
LOL!!! You crack me up 🙂

Om nom nom!

My out-of-town friends will arrive this afternoon. We won’t start a car until Sunday. We’ll be “dug in” with everything we need. Food, drink, chess, cards, movies,nooks,,,etc. Thanksgiving and the weekend in the House of Juju has been a tradition for many people for many many years…kind of like going camping with your buddies. You can also be certain we’ll solve all the world’s problems. My fire pit is loaded.
I hope you have a Great one.
