What You Ate On The Road

First things first - Porno people, go away. There's nothing for you to see here. Perverts.

I'm taking this act on the road for Thanksgiving, starting tomorrow. I'm going to North Carolina to spend the holidays with my sister, brother-in-law, and my parents. And one crazy min-pin. I'm not sure how much I will get to update the blog since I will have to share the computer with everyone mentioned above. And my mom does like to use the computer. I'm not quite sure what to expect about North Carolina, my sister just moved there in February. I've been to Charlotte and the far western part of the state, but not Raleigh-Durham (which is where I am going this time). My sister and her husband live in a pretty small house, so I hope the somewhat cramped quarters won't freak me out. I expect to revert to an even more childlike state than usual (just temporarily) since I will have little or no control over where I am going or what I am doing. Usually at Thanksgiving I see it as an opportunity to laze about and recuperate from work, but since that's pretty much what I've been doing the last couple of months, maybe I will want to get out and do more things this year. So, if anything interesting happens I'll try to post about it!

On another note, when I went for my run today at the junior high, I saw a group of ravens fighting over a not-quite-empty bag of Munchos. It was pretty surreal to see one of them carrying around the Munchos bag in his beak. I didn't even know they still made Munchos. And I didn't think anyone actually ate them either. I think they're just above Funyuns on my most-hated chip list. I guess when you're a bird you have to take what you can get.

I have no idea why - but this post made me laugh from one end to the next.

For one - you just gave the search engines a lot of keywords to grab onto "porno, perverts"

For another - I love that you recognize you've been recuperating from life while they rest of us have been getting our BALLS BUSTED!!!

regaining composure.

Birds fighting over Muchos.. what's next? Monkeys fighting over candy cigarettes??

I actually like Funyons. Who doesn't like something with the word "fun" in it. They are fun onions. Sheesh.

Now go laze around and prepare to blow air in a tire. Some of us are still out trying to bring down the man.

Maybe I will see you during Thanksgiving! I'll beep if I pass a car with a load of people and a min-pin. I'm going to NC too. About 45 minutes from Raleigh.

Have a wonderful holiday!

LOL this post cracked me up too.

i'm still wondering what the min-pin likes to do with his time on the computer...does he have a blog? :)

Have a great trip and post when you can!

Damn, these are some funny comments. Who knew?

Muchos - Dora indeed.

I'm not sure what the min pin does on the computer, but he better not visit that porno site.

And Holli, when you said the min pin ate your face off it made me think of Gary Oldman in 'Hannibal'.

Damn as soon as I saw the word "munchos", I immediately thought of "Funyons" and then there it was in type. Takes me back, way back.

Have a great trip.

Holli - you mean like 'fun'eral?

I'm not sure why I dislike Funyuns - I love onion rings. Maybe it's because my best friend in high school was a Funyun junkie, and it really skeeved me out how you could smell his breath from 5 feet away after he ate them.

Have a good Thanksgiving everybody!

I love those nasty funyons and I'm glad that I'm not alone.

Have safe travels to NC JC, (I liked writing that) and if you do find anything exciting in Raleigh-Durham, please let us know.
