Ok, so yesterday's post apparently made me look all pitiful and stuff. SO not my goal.
Next topic please!
So I've lived in my condo about 3 1/2 years now. In the beginning I tried to have everyone (i.e. my family) over to show it off, but they were remarkably difficult. They don't even remember being so (typical). So the other night at my niece's birthday party a few of them made comments about how I never invite them over.
Rather than hiss out the plethora of nasty comebacks that whizzed through my brain at lightning speed, I responded with: "Fine. Why don't we do Thanksgiving at my place then?" (FYI- Thanksgiving here in Canada is October 14).
I showed them.
Um, except for the part where I need to fit 9 adults and 4 children into my 890 sq. feet.
So what did I do? Well, obviously I went to wikihow for advice on how to make it the best Thanksgiving ever!
OK- search "Thanksgiving"
How to buy nothing?? Wtf?! Someone needs instructions on that?
Don't get distracted Princess...
Why don't I create a new Thanksgiving tradition? Cool.
Track down an old teacher that I'm grateful to?
How to make a Thanksgiving centrepiece? Ahhh lovely.
Uh no. I don't do pumpkin guts. There's a reason I never have a jack 0' lantern on display.
How to make a day after thanksgiving sandwich?
Who are these idiots?
Why don't I just clean my condo and make a dessert? It's not like I'm doing any of the cooking anyhow. And don't get me started on how my step-mom cooks a turkey every year and tried to make me think it was a turkey cause I can't tell the difference anyhow.
Anyhow. So while I may have placated my family for never inviting them over, I think I'm the real winner there. I don't have to drive anywhere, and I bet I'll get to keep all the leftovers!
