Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Me, I had to work but that's alright. It gets me out of having to cook. As for my culinary skills, well, lets put it this way... When I cook, people say grace AFTER they eat! That's why I usually make reservations or buy what's needed and have my sisters cook... For the health and safety of all mankind... I can make a mean Hawaiian cheeseball. But that is so easy my infant nephew could make it... I am looking forward to holidays... not the shopping so much because people can act like brats sometimes but I am looking forward to finding good deals where I can. Both in person and online. I've got more little kids to buy for this year but it's always lots of fun? How about you? Do you dread shopping over the holidays or do you look forward to it?

I used to be the type of guy that waited till the week before Christmas to START my shopping. Well safe to say, I'm OLDer now and a sure fire indicator that I've changed is that I'm looking at the Wal-mart and other store ads from the Sunday papers to see what kind of sales are going on so I can buy gifts early. I used to pride myself on shopping in the last week before Christmas and finding cool gifts for my loved ones. Now that I'm OLDer, and there are more little ones in my family, I have to be more conscientious about what I get. So that means I have to make a list (and check it twice) to see where I can get stuff for the little ones. I didn't realize how crazy people can be when it comes to shopping. I saw a lady about go nuclear on her son over food. He took it in stride but I was way uncomfortable seeing this unfold in public. I understand we all have bad days and can go off for the whackiest of reasons. But this was very trivial and she was within a gnat's eyelash of going Ma Barker on this kid. I came home and innoculated myself the only way I knew how... food and football...
