My family is like every movie about dysfunctional Thanksgiving dinners.
Bad food, something burned and something ruined when a hot dish burns someone and falls and breaks.
And one uncle gets drunk, one aunt has the vapors, a couple of kids cry and throw food.

This year I am simply telling them I'm a Nato volunteer securing arms in Libya.
What's your solution?

Threaten suicide, get locked up, escape for Thanksgiving, break back in, sleep, sleep some more, eat the hospital Thanksgiving feast, plead your case, you're cured, go home. All is well.....

Fight injustices during Christmas, you'll be respected more...

My family is well familiar with my dislike of holiday gatherings, so they don't even bother me about it. Before that, tho', I once told them I had a chance to go on a cruise with friends. Not true, of course, but I'll lie through my teeth every year to avoid going to these "family gatherings". There's always at least one asshole who'll gossip, gripe, get drunk, whatever. Why would any reasonable person put up with that? They say you HAVE to love your family. Bullshit.

Even better. He could grab a Thai Hooker and a bottle of Johnny Wakler Red and then go occupy something. Then he'd look like a depraved, drunk, activist...you know, a typical Demoncrat.

I was driving back from Alaska one year and stopped in Fort Nelson for some chow. I walked into the roadside diner and the waitress asked me if I wanted to order the Thanksgiving special. It was Columbus Day, but, when in Rome...

I see your confusion. Apparantly Canadian's give thanks to Italian explorers who decimate indiginous populations before succumbing to syphilis. Canadians and Mennonites. Americans give thanks to English settlers who decimate indiginous populations before succumbing to their easy chairs and Dallas Cowboy losses. Americans and Amish.

1. take a trip to canada, best to cross at a non monitored station.(leave passport in US)

2. attempt to cross boarder at a monitored location, hopefully close to ServiceTerms ;-}

3. call ServiceTerms to come sign you out of jail unless you want to eat your thanksgiving dinner with the RMCP.(i'd choose ServiceTerms if given the choice)

4. enjoy canada while waiting for the embassy to get your citizenship status straightened out.

p.s. don't forget to take advantage of all that government healthcare. heck they may even find you a job with a raise.

No, it was just tinnitus. You can come to my house. But last year I burned the poptarts and the grog bowl had a moth in it.

No problem. Most of my visitors hardly notice the delousing procedure and some actually enjoy the cavity search.
