|Me, yesterday at work. I cannot tell you what my co-worker Robert told me to bring this smile to my face (you don't want to know but we DO have fun)|
So how was your Thanksgiving? Mine was just dandy. I worked at the hotel yesterday from 3 pm to 11 pm. I don't mind working the holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas because the guests are (almost) always in a cheerful and upbeat mood. Unlike wedding guests (the worst), holiday guests are happy. They don't seem to be as demanding as the usual wedding guests are.
Yesterday I wore my new purple outfit to work. Purple or lavender is probably my favorite color. So hard to get though for men. This sweater I got from L.L. Bean which is a new thing for them.
I've often wondered "Why doesn't L.L. Bean make colors available for ALL the people?" Well, finally they have. Maybe, just maybe diversity is catching up with that staid institution of manliness called L.L. Bean.
Well folks, today is Black Friday. Leaving work last night after 11 pm and driving north on Rt. 1 to Casa Tipton-Kelly, I witnessed the once a year phenomena called "Driving to the Rehoboth Outlet Mall to take advantage of Black Friday stores opening at 12 am." Egads! Can you believe it? Folks driving down at midnight to SHOP! Every year I am amazed at that steady steam of headlights headed south on Rt. 1 in the darkness of the cold night. Nothing is worth that. Are you kidding?
Well today I have to figure out what to do with this turkey (a real one, not Bill) that our neighbors so graciously gave us for Thanksgiving. I think I can freeze a lot of the white meat to use in future meals. I'll have to check it out. I love turkey though and especially left over turkey. I'm sure I can come up with some very interesting concoctions for that turkey meat.
What's to to this weekend? I called my friend Ed who was down for the annual Gay Man's No Place to Go for Thanksgiving dinner. This year the dinner was held at Tim's and Mile's house. Unlike many years past when it was held at Bob and Jim's but both Bob and Jim are in
My friend Ed said he doesn't know how much longer the annual Gay Man's No Place to Go for Thanksgiving dinner will be held. Attendance was down to nine this year. In Bob and Jim's heyday the attendees sometimes totaled two dozen and two turkeys (not including the attendees). I suggested to Ed that maybe he cold hold the dinner at his place but he shot that suggestion down even before I could finish my sentence. I'm certainly not holding it at Casa Tipton-Kelly. My once a year Bloggerpalooza is my thing. I've done the family reunions. The poor attendance at this year's reunion has cured me of that folly. I won't be organizing any more reunions but the Bloggerpalooza I will. That's a lot of fun with fun people. I never did like the annual Gay Man's No Place to Go for Thanksgiving dinner because it seemed to me to be a place to get hit on by dirty old men. At least that was always my experience. Yes, I'm going down THAT road. Just telling it like it is folks. I'll tell you, it's not all fun being a Man Magnet like I am.
