Things That Make Me Laugh

I know it's Thanksgiving and I should be listing all the things that I am thankful for - my family, my friends, my job, my health, but I am thankful for those things every day. So, I decided that I should tell you things that have made me laugh this month.

1) First, this poem, compliments of Brian Palmby. I have no idea where he comes up with this shit but I can't wait for our night before Thanksgiving tradition!

Twas the night before Thanksgiving, and all through the bar
People were eating wings, as they came from afar.
The orders were told to the waitress with care,
In the hopes that the cold beer would soon be there....

"Now Medium! now, Mango Habanero! now, Mild and Garlic Parmesan!
On, Asian Zing! On, BBQ! on, on Teriyaki and Blazin!
To the top of the stomach! Eat this fireball!
Now eat away! Eat away! Eat away all!"

And then, in a twinkling, I heard the Impala
The prancing and pawing of local fella.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Into the entrance Zeke came with a bound.

He was dressed all in Carharrt, from his head to his foot,
And his hoodies were all tarnished with wrenches and soot.
A bundle of alloys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a bachelor, just opening his six-pack.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
Eating all the wings, even the last Caribbean-jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, he started bitch slapping all the Ho's!

He sprang to his Impala, not before taking a piddle,
And away he drove in cold November drizzle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Thanksgiving to all, and thanks for the invite!"

2) Sophia Frankenstein - she is starting to walk but she looks like Frankenstein trying to keep her balance! The squeals of delight when she gets to you and gets a hug is awesome!

3) Traverse City Toast the Season Wine Tour - This is always a good time. 8 wineries and 1 distillery in a day, how can you go wrong? But what I don't get is the people that wear boas, Santa hats and matching shirts. This is not a race, this is not a team event. You don't wear a boa to a fancy restaurant, why to a winery?

4) Breaking Dawn Part I Premiere - I have never seen so many teenagers decked out in Victoria Secret PINK apparel and Uggs in all my life. You would have sworn we were at the premiere with the stars with the amount of camera flashes that were going off! The Twilight trivia, the tweens yelling "Team Edward", " Team Jacob" and clapping certainly made sure the movie and the previews were not boring!

So Happy Thanksgiving to all, and to all a good night!
