i weep bitter tears.

i received some sad news a couple of weeks ago, and i've been in denial since then. i know it's real now, and i am truly melancholy. let me start with some background. before bitter half and i joined forces to become the supercouple that we are, i would volunteer to work Christmas and Thanksgiving as long as i had New Year's Eve and Day off. (yes, i have the priorities of a drunkard.) my family generally celebrated Chrismas the day before, and Thanksgiving was never a big deal. however, bitter half's family consists of a bunch of fabulous cooks so Thanksgiving is a veritable feast of heavenly proportions. needless to say, it's become my favorite holiday and one that i begin preparing for well in advance by fasting. this year someone got the bright idea to go to Houston for the holiday. wtf?!?! i probably can't get off of work, and i doubt i can afford a plane ticket. if Texas wasn't the vast expanse that it is, i could drive, but then again i can't drive back with a tummy full of tryptophan. woe is me!!! i guess i'll be eating at Furr's with the other family-less losers.

Hi Christine, thank you for visiting my blog today. My heart aches for the potential home cooked turkey lost. You can only hope that Furr's will scoop heaping portions of mashed potatos and gravy and corn and stuffing and let them all mix together in yummy harmony. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
