I don't celebrate but I'm not against it. I avoid the radio at holiday time. I like Bing Crosby at Christmas but we are way past that time. A few gits in a stocking are not enough today. Junior might get pissed coz he didn't get a new sports car. With what the holidays have become just leave me out. I checked the mail while ago and it's snowing again.

Yes boring - it's all compulsory buying and eating, no matter how you feel. So I never celebrate Sinterklaas, xmas, easter and all the rest, and I feel better because of it. I celebrate good days and the arrival of nice people and the trips around the sun I made with partner.

A lot of desperate people have turned weird things into "delicacies," like snakes, snails, birds' nests (made from bird saliva), shark fins, fugu, octopus and squid....GAHHHHHH!  IMO, all squid is good for is swordfish bait.

I often wonder who was the first person to cook and eat an artichoke, or an egg.  I mean, raw eggs look icky, but they are so useful, cooked or raw (mayonnaise!)....and plain steamed artichokes are WONderful, IF you know how to eat them correctly.  Thistles, for gourd's sake!

And several Asian countries kill and eat puppies....[shudder].  If they are THAT hungry, they should stop reproducing.  I won't even eat veal.  I don't have any qualms about eating chicken or turkey....they don't have enough brains to know what's happening to them, but there ARE farm "sanctuaries" that feed the turkeys on thanksgiving....

I wish the gov't had never declared this a holiday.  It's too close to Solstice, xmas, New Year....actually the gluttony starts with Halloween.  I used to enjoy Halloween when costumes (and treats) were homemade and clever, but it's just as boring as everything else now.

Sk8eycat - I have tasted cat food, a Chinese restaurant I frequented was checked and in the kitchen were skinned rats and there was cat food in the nasi goreng.... the restaurant was closed and got a huge fine, of course. But now and again the story comes up that the poorest people eat cat food out of necessity. About the Chinese it is said that they eat anything with legs except the table.

Chris, no, I've never even tasted cat food.  It's too ugly, and even my cats aren't very fond of it.  I was being sarcastic. 

Besides, the canned turkey pet food has giblets in it, and I can't eat any kind of organ meat...or seafood....or most fish...gives me horrible gout attacks.

Such a casual remark about eating catfood... does that mean that catfood is in your daily diet? That doesn't sound like a joke to me.

Comment by Randall Smith 20 hours ago

Sounds like a plan, Felaine. Still, we're all willing to help out in some small way, seriously.

Spud, I don't recollect ever hearing of WinCo. It's probably something like our Ruler, a Kroger retail market. Nothing fancy. I'm still an Aldi guy.

Safe travels, those that are.

Comment by sk8eycat yesterday

I just realized that if I buy $30 worth of groceries from Store2Door (a deli/grocery store that delivers ONLY) I can get a FREE foot-long turkey sammidge...I have Cranberries in the freezer, so I think I'll buy one orange (to add to the cranberry sawce), a LOT of ramen noodles, some potatoes, and fresh broccoli, AND the Sammidge (on half a whole wheat baguette)....that will make at least 2 meals.Maybe 3. 

Grace doesn't eat meat, so I will have the turkey all to myself....it comes with lettuce, tomato, mayo and mustard....I'll ask then to leave out the mustard, and mix cranberry sauce with the mayo.....   The baguettes are baked in the store, and they are deeeelishus!
