OH OH OH!!!!!!!!!!!



We call it "tinsel."


I bet if you threatened to cook only vegetarian dishes you'd soon have some helping hands!

In my house "the bird" used to always be the guys' province. My ex and his best friend felt a bit competitive over it and loved to cook turkeys. Vincent (the friend) was the more experienced cook. I'll never forget the first year when my ex did the classic.... leaving the gibblet bag in the cavity! HAHHAAHAHHAHA. Oh the arguments about how to roast a juicy turkey.... hahahhaha! I remember it fondly. Not MY problem!!!

Let the meat eaters do it, dear. It's not too late... here's what you can do:

Get a bottle of the liquor of your choice. Pour a generous glass for yourself. Drink it. Get loud. Say things like, "oh my! I wish i could remember how i start this." Have another glass. Work on a vegetarion dish. Ask, "Is it thawed? I can'ttell." Sit down for a while. Put up your feet. When someone wanders by ask, "Whadd'you ththink it will take to cook?" Look helpless. Look drunk. Look like you don't care. They'll manage!!!!

'Joy' is not a word normally associated with me!

All the more reason, then, Lithgae... unless you'd prefer the word "orgasm" or "wealth" or... let's see... the possibilities are endless... so what should i be hoping comes your way?
