I checked the calendar and my ever changing days off. Surprisingly I have Thanksgiving off this year. What to do?
I live alone and really have no really close friends now. I'd be really surprised if I got invited to someones
Thanksgiving meal. I might be able to find some restaurant that has a Thanksgiving dinner. Most require reservations
these days. Perhaps I should go in and work my day off and be thanked for doing it? I could sit at home and just
relax and count my blessings that I actually have a Holiday off this year.

I am working. I offered to work though. I don't really get along with most of my family except for my grandparents and they are on vacation in Cali until the beginning of December. I am most thankful that I have a job which I love that keeps a roof over my head and food in my belly so it seems almost suiting that I be at work on that day.

Do you have any other friends that have the day off an might not have many friends or family around? You could always host a small dinner at your place.

Or I hear McDonald's is open on Thanksgiving day. Smiley: frown

OR you can make your own meal and watch anime all day. Make your own holiday.

Bread pudding and french toast are both epic, and when you think about it, they're extremely similar. I still haven't tried adding cognac to my french toast, though.

Do this. A few basics, like a turkey breast, stuffing, mashed potatoes, a pumpkin pie and/or some bread pudding will make for a great meal for an anime marathon.

This is the story of the first Thanksgiving, once again by my drunk grandpa:

Many years ago ... Christopher Columbus and his pilgrim buddies come to America on a boat called the Mayflower to live because the English King wouldn't let the Jewish people go. So Moses, who was a friend of Christopher Columbus, rented 3 boats: the Mayflower, the Santa Maria, and the USS Enterprise.

When they landed on America an Indian squaw, named Sacajawea, met them and traded them pelts for beer, and then showed them how to de-gut a rabbit. That night her friends danced around with their boobs hanging out and balanced clay pots on their heads. The head pilgrim then baptized all the Indians to be Christians and they shot turkeys and played horseshoes. It was General Custer's birthday, and three Oriental Kings showed up with gifts of myrrh and other crap. Many pilgrims did not survive the first winter because they didn't have heat because Jimmy Carter who was president of the Pilgrims had an oil embargo.

Sacajawea and her Indian friends burnt buffalo turds and heated the camp. The pilgrims was thankful. However it smelled so bad animals come outta the forest two by two. The Lord then made a rainbow appear, to show that he would never make turds burn again, and cause a horrible smell. Sacajawea fell in love with Kemosabe, and they were married on that first Thanksgiving, and lived in a tent with wheels. That's right. All the pilgrims were glad to be away from the king, and to beat that they all landed right on Thanksgiving day. Charlton Heston was then elected president.

My grandpa was REALLY drunk.

One of my friends hosts an "orphan's Thanksgiving" for people in the area who live too far away to travel home, or whose families can't or won't celebrate together for whatever reason. I wouldn't be surprised if there were other small, local groups who do the same thing. Just get together and have a big potluck with others in the same boat. After all, Thanksgiving is about being grateful you are a fat American have enough to eat. Any family considerations are really just secondary to that.

Yep, bread pudding is more solid (you can cut it into pieces like cake), bread and butter pudding is runnier (at least how I've had it) so you'd need to eat it from some sort of container.

I was trying to find something to liken the texture of each to but I'm at a loss.

Gotcha! So you don't have the eggy batter type stuff in bread pudding?

As fun as that sounds. I can't see that happening. The free Taxi's will not take me home to where I live.
I hear that McDonald's will be open! (McChicken sandwich?)

If you're feeling lazy since you might be by yourself, but still want a turkey Thanksgiving dinner, KFC around here is apparently selling fried turkeys(with sides) that would probably suffice in a pinch. Probably doing it in other areas too.

Lolgaxe I have to say that post was ultra awesome for 2 reasons.
One: That story was so epic I shall tell my kids, grandkids and great-grandkids.
Two: In one single post you managed to type more than you have in your last 500 posts combined.

I'd try and find some folks to have a meal with. If you can't maybe go volunteer to serve up turkey at a soup kitchen or something.

I've spent a couple thanksgivings alone and it kind of sucks.

Anyways "cheers" on the day off.

Stay home. Going out is the reason other people have to work on the holidays. Being one of those (lovely 2-10 shift), I really wish people would just stay home. Get everybody on board for a few years and maybe we can put a stop to having to work on holidays outside of essential services (police, hospitals)

Well last night at work I had two different co-workers ask me to come to their home for Thanksgiving.
I'll be making a decision in a bit as too who I'll go visit.
