Thanksgiving Jitters

lone ranger tonto, happy thanksgiving, drollgirl

Is anybody else a little bit nervous about Thanksgiving? I am going to spend Thanksgiving with manfriend and his extended family. GULP. This will be my first time hanging out with his entire family, and I am totally fucking nervous. I have asked a million questions: who will be there, what should I bring, how long will it take, are there pets I can hang out with, is there a backyard, will there be booze, etc. When I asked if it would be casual or dressy, and what should I wear, manfriend paused and said, "Wellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll, it would be much appreciated if you dressed as either a pilgrim or an Indian."

Thankfully he was kidding. At least I hope so.

I am so invested in you and "manfriend's" shenanigans!

I know there would be a good story. Don't show up to the house empty handed. Bring some wine or a cake or something.

That way if they can't cook, you know you can atleast drink yourself to death or get full of the cake you brought!


Any animals you can hang out with...lol!!

I love how Mayra said that people who don't drink make her uncomfortable. HAHAHA! I'm excited for you that you are spending Thanksgiving with your guy! Mine's on his way now, and will be helping me with all my preparations tonight and tomorrow (and deflecting my moodiness). Neither of our families will be here (given that neither of us are from CA), but my roommate's family will be here.

I just spent 3.5 hours and $150 on Thanksgiving groceries, so this shit BETTER BE GOOD.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Man friend definitely has a sense of humor! You know just eat good food, enjoy man friend's company, and feign a wad ache if things aren't as you expect ;)
