***WARNING: ADULT CONTENT @ THE END OF THIS POST***
Still reading? O.k., don't say I didn't warn you. I don't want to get a bunch of bitchy emails about how "gross" I am. You were all warned!!!! Haha. Well, it went better then I expected and it went a lot better then years past with my family. Thank God!!! In years past we all just kind of sat around and looked at each other while my mother and I tried to think of anything to say to the others that might produce some kind of converstation. Anyway, we had a great time with these people we were with this year and we got to drink booze! Wow, I got to drink booze for the first time in my Thanksgiving history. It sure was nice and helped the whole interaction thing. They made this slushie type drink which consisted of canberry and orange juices and vodka all mixed together and then frozen. It was tasty. I was chowing down on those all night. Then they made these brandy slush drinks and mixed it with Squirt grapefruit soda which was delightful indeed!! Hmmm...I don't have a drinking problem. Not at all! I have no problem being able to drink lol. My friend Holly can attest to that (wink).
So the dinner went well and the food was scrumptious. I ate and drank and ate and drank even more and then I had some more cranberry slush and so on. Before I knew it my mind was drifting off into a "candyland" of sorts only this place had booze flowing down the streets and raining from the sky. Ahhhhhhh. Then I was snapped out of this place with one of the family daughters yelling, "OH MY GOD!!! OH MY GOD MOM!!!" I sat up and realized that I had cranberry slush all over my face and then she stood up and said, "MOUSE!!" I looked over and sure enough there was a little mouse running along the back of the counter where all of the food was located. Once he saw and heard us all he dashed in behind the oven to hide. Thus, we set traps on either opening of the oven and waited. Pretty soon he poked his little head out from behind the oven and ventured out toward the peanut butter smothered mouse trap. Then...SNAP!!!! We got the mouse and that got all the ladies screaming and one of the daughters was standing up on the her chair. It wasn't a pretty sight either. There was a little puddle of blood and the mouse was still kind of twitching. Eek. So this year was the year of the mouse. That was the big excitement for the evening.
I'm pretty sure any holiday gathering isn't complete without some kind of excitement like that. Usually though it is something like Uncle so-and-so getting too drunk and ranting about conspiracy theories over how Thanksgiving is one of the holidays started by aliens to control the masses. Either that or someone burns the turkey and there is smoke pouring out of the oven and the fire department has to be called in to save the day. Fist fights are also common in such gatherings. There was a wee bit o' that last night between the dad and one of the boyfriends. I just sat back and watching and drank more slushie. Mmmmmm...frozen booze.
Anyway, It was actually kind of a depressing day for me because it was the first time that I can remember that my family has not come together for the holiday but it was probably for the best given the rifts right now. I called my mom once Lori and I got home and I talked to her about the day and found out that we both had had a rough day in thinking about the divisions in our family. I could tell that my mother had been crying and that just broke my heart and I had to choke back the tears. I adore my mother and hate to see her depressed or crying. She is such a sweetheart of a lady and I just want to see her happy. So, anyway, the saga goes on. I will let you know what happens when/if my brother writes back. I don't know if I told you about this but I wrote my oldest brother a long email about some of the problems between us. He wrote back with a quick note saying that they (his family) were going skiing over the weekend and that he would get back to me next week. So, we will see. Drama and fakeness. Two things that I HATE the most!!
Now I'm off to masturbate and then eat some lunch. I got a new nudie magazine in the mail the other day. Ahhh I sure am thankful for porn. What a great invention huh. Too much info? Sorry. I'm feeling blunt to day. Remember, I warned you.
Peace and love and unity to you all!!! May this post find you all in good spirits and good health.
