My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

The Day After...

And the best part of it all is the knowledge that there is no way I am going to have to cook today. Whoohoo!

I mean, I usually overdo a bit, but this year? I must have been under the assumption that I was feeding whole battalions of people. Good Grief. Tons of Turkey (I will be making *that* the day before from now on, by the way...), dressing for days, there was even more than a bit of macaroni and cheese leftover! Unheard of!

And hey, anybody have any suggestions as to what I should do with about a gallon and a half of leftover gravy?? Seriously....

Anyhoo, while other folks around the nation are out and about loosing their ever-loving minds in a retail feeding frenzy, my biggest plan today is just to finish up the dishes and maybe catch a family movie.

What do you think, Happy Feet? Or The Santa Clause 3??

I am torn between wanting to see the new Harry Potter Trailer all of the cute dancing penguins and seeing Tim Allen be Santa again.

Truthfully, I really enjoyed the first two Santa Clause movies. Probably because they just shored up my own belief in the Man in Red. Ho Ho Ho!!

So anyway, that's my plan. And good grief - they are showing these completely manic shoppers on TV... Can anyone explain the appeal of this? Am I missing something?

I must be... There's a lot of active participants out there. But I'm warm and inside... And I have pie... Nothing wrong with that.

Update: Happy Feet won the toss. Pure eye candy, it had great music, dance scenes, and some definite laugh out loud moments... It was great! And yes, there was a bit of touchy feely environmentalism, but over all, the message (follow your own dreams and talents is what *I* got) was excellent. It's a keeper.
