Thanksgiving

One of my favorite holidays. Centered around food, family, and football. And beer.

This year I'm running in the Turkey Trot at Southpark. I've always wanted to do this, I'm doing the 8K. Build up a huge appetite and then go destroy some nice beers, turkey and stuffing (dressing, whatever). Staying close to home.

What wild plans for the day do ya'll have? Hope nobody's traveling, travel safe if you are.

I honestly hate it..... I have to go between two families..my family is boring and ultra right-wing... all they talk about is how Obama isn't really an American and in between the appetizers, main course and dessert..don't you worry...there will be plenty of racial slurs *sigh*

My husbands family is pretty cool..but I'm so full from going to my family's debacle that I can't start gulping wine to make it all go away

I tried so hard to "go out of town" this year to our families so I could just stay home and cook for once for just us...but NOOOOOO my stupid husband won't let me

I envy those of you who get to watch football and drink at home...I HATE YOU! :((

Politics should be off limits at family gatherings. You should make a rule.

Most of my family is pretty right-wing and universally hate Obama. Except my sister. Very liberal. As in, she lives in Chapel Hill liberal. She's very outspoken, won't hold her tongue, Throw in some alcohol and its like gasoline on a fire. Many family fueds/fights have erupted over this crap.

Long story short, politics is verboten now at family functions (like Floppin said). I demanded it at my wedding.

seeing that we're outnumbered..I just sit there and keep my mouth shut. If I don't, I get brought into it....usually it's my Dad's ramen noodled haired girlfriend that starts all this poo...I would love to shove a turkey leg down her throat to shut her fat ass up

hey..at least I get a 4 day weekend! :) SHOPPING!

I will say...Christmas Day we do at my house..where if politics or religion come up ..i do say something b/c you're in my house...and you'll shut it or lose it .

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! let's start drinking now

I don't mind sitting there while relatives discuss politics. Maybe that's because all of my opinions are perfect.
