"so far it s been a pretty good thanksgiving"

blogging cockroach said...
weird but pretty good
you see mom here at the house is french
dad is american
their son tommy
whose computer i use
is very confused
that didn t stop tommy from making a very good
pumpkin pie which i just sampled yum dessert
anyway you know the french don t eat early
so mom s idea of thanksgiving dinner is 6 pm
that s super early in france
that s super crazy over here
dad says thanksgiving is the only day
the americans eat better than the frence
mom says merde
but mom did get talked into making a dinde
that s turkey in french
with the usual fixings
but how do you explain stuffing to the french
not to mention creamed onions
but mom did her best with dad s help
and it all worked out
though they got into a bit of a dustup
the biggest problem was the wine
why am i not surprised
dad had this bottle of puligny montrachet
picked out and mom says it s all wrong
dad says ok we ll drink the mondavi
you ve been cooking with if that s how
you re going to be and mom says you need
a nice cote du rhone but not chateauneuf du pape
more something like a cornas
and dad says but that s red and i drink white
wine with turkey and mom says your palate
isn t educated so go open one of those bottles of
05 cornas in the basement before the
damn dinde drys and i get angry
so they had a slightly sulkey dinner with dad
coughing and making faces at the wine
and mom reminding tommy that the pilgrims
and the indians probably didn t have any good wine
but some people never learn to appreciate such
things and it was just as well they drank
beer and dad says he could use a good beer
about now

well this went on and given the late start
and the bickering over wine things didn t wind up
until very late when it was too hard
to really clean up well which is fine by me
as you know i like to dine fashionably late too

Tell that to Lois Feldman.

A Carroll woman who was caught having sex in the men's room at an Iowa Hawkeye football game in Minneapolis last weekend says she’d had so much wine before kickoff that she doesn’t remember walking into the restroom, the man she had sex with in a stall, or when the police opened the door.

A security guard who said he saw the two having sex through a gap in a men’s restroom stall flagged down campus police, according to the police report.

The officer pushed his way through the crowd, opened the door and separated Feldman and Walsh, the report said.

Police described both Feldman and Walsh as upset, drunk and uncooperative.


Feldman said she’d never met Walsh.

“I don’t know who this man is,” she said today. “I just found out his name in the paper last night.”

Since I posted this late to the last thread...

Watch, as Martha Stewart "eats" a Thanksgiving turkey: "Keeping the pointy wings neatly at the side."

Lem said...

Mother tried to .. hook me up with a distant causin.

I danced with her. Mother took our picture.

I'm at my friends house en el alto manhattan. I will fill in later

Lem said...

Mother causin is hot, ecept the causin has a man incognito.

blake said...

EDH! I tried to post that in the turkey-cide thread!

Lem said...

It looks like i'm going with causin to crismas party.

she sudjested mother should remain uncognisant.

Yo no se come guardar secretos a mi madre. pero esta ves yo creo poder.

Es una Mujer Especial.

vaile con ella.

mi amigo me dice ... te digo ahorita.

Lem said...

I allready knew her.

but now she is divorced now she is a dancin maniac - i'm a dancing maniac.

i told her i danced outside of certain propriety.

she said - just dont go crazy and embarrased your mother.

i was piked that my mother would pre-empt me.

but that's what nother does. thats what she is good at.

imagining the worst.

Lem said...

so i told my distant causin dont tell mother we are going to the crismas party.

she agreed.

to tell you the truth i dont know why i had not hooked up with this causin b4.

well it's not like anything has happened. its all based on a vibe and great dancing and a yes to an invitation to a crismass party.

Lem said...

we had met in the dominican republic b4 and it was ebarrasing that i did not remember.

but i did remember the excuse for a husband my family found for her to get here. to get to the US.

She complemted me that i had remembered a thanksorry from nearly a decade old.

i told her that that is what happens when our dreams are taken over by other people we believe know better.

Lem said...

She is very nice. i could have maybe got togrther with her b4.

but she knows that i know that other than this get together it would have been impossible. no matter what.

we had an adult conversation.

i made her laugf

perdonenme la falta de ortografia - a lo mejor estoy enamorado y necesite mi dormiso espanol.

Lem said...

i dont know what to do.

other than as her only son i will have to take care of her withing a decade.

she still sort of taking care of me. im not in shape way or form taking care of her.

and this is the thing i know. mother came to say to me she is no longer coming to see me.

if i want to see her i'm going to have a current passport.

Lem said...

mother went and took me, draged me to renew my passport.

its kind of embarrasing.

Lem said...

she figured out that i let my passport expire.

i cant be mad at her for thinking i need to get a girlfriend.

even if the best she can do, so far away from her territory, is a distant causin.

Lem said...

she didint know i could dance bachata.

thats how separated i have been from my mother.

i dont think she knows me - her only son.

Lem said...

Late night Lem rules.

Yes. What's to become of us if the invitation to the Christmas party, unexpectedly accepted by the hot dancing distant cousin, leads to something more? I'll be happy for Lem but Althouse comments I fear will suffer. There's nothing like a good stream-of-conscious series in mixed English and Spanish with simultaneously charming and challenging ortografia to give insight into the human condition.

I cooked for hours on Wednesday so I could relax most of yesterday. I played on the Wii with my kids and then we played Monopoly. And we ate pie. It was a good day.
