Just in case you were unaware, Thanksgiving is this week. After this week is the Christmas season. That’s when it’s totally kosher to start decorating for Christmas. I thought I would make that clear, because Walmart puts out Christmas shit in September. This throws off my Seasonal Affective Disorder, and makes me depressed while it’s still technically summer.
And some of you eager beavers are just as bad as Walmart, what with putting up decorations before you’ve even cooked your turkey–like Santa can fill those stockings before your dad takes a post-Thanksgiving nap while watching the football game. Then, some of you are just bad at decorating. Like people in Owasso, who have really bad taste in Christmas decorations. According to News9.com:
Happy Monday, everyone, and welcome to what is hopefully a short week for you. I know that I’m glad I only have to go to the office 3 days this week, and I’m really looking forward to shunning green bean casserole in favor of saving room for pie. If you’re wise, you’ll do the same. And to those of you who either work at a restaurant that is open on the holiday, or in retail, I feel for you. I hope your holiday doesn’t suck because people need to eat out on Thanksgiving or start their Black Friday shopping on Thursday.
But anyway, it’s time for the tweets. As always, I have gathered up the very best in Oklahoma Twitter for your entertainment. You can check out this week’s tweets after the jump!
As far as I’m concerned, Thanksgiving may as well be called Pie Day. I’m not to into the first few courses of the day because they take away valuable stomach real estate from pie. Anyway, you can eat birds, potatoes and dinner rolls any old day. But Thanksgiving is a special occasion because you can eat apple, pumpkin and pecan pie all in the same day. And bonus points if you pile loads of Cool Whip on top of said pie, like you’re erecting a monument to gluttony.
But I understand that not everyone is cool with only eating pie for a meal. To some, the turkey and stuffing is a very important part of the day. To others, various side dishes are the reason for the season. Recently, The New York Times published a piece about Thanksgiving dishes typical of each of the states. So, what was the most “Oklahoma” dish?
Happy Monday everyone, and boy do I sure hope you have enough milk and bread to get you through this minor snowmageddon. At the time of writing, I couldn’t find any school or business closure information for today, but I’m going to write this assuming that you found out you didn’t have to go into work today last night, and you’ve been drinking ever since. So here’s to a great Monday at home all warm in your PJs with mugs of coffee and Bailey’s.
You know, if this isn’t the case and you have to drive on crappy roads in bad traffic to get to work, this intro is really going to piss you off. That would just be adding insult to injury, really.
Well, either way, if you’re at home or at work, the tweets are after the jump.
As someone who made it from Daisy Scout all the way to Brownie Scout, I know a thing or two about the dangers of scouting. And by that I mean I know what it’s like to not meet your cookie sale quota. I also know what it’s like to quit an organization because you wanted to learn some camping skills but never did anything beyond standing outside a grocery store to sell Thin Mints to strangers. Even though your friends who were in the Boy Scouts got to earn a badge that required them jump into some freezing water, remove their pants and use them as a flotation device, you got a badge that looks like a carousel horse that shows you sold the bare minimum of over-priced Do-si-dos.
But whatever. I’m not bitter. I don’t even care. That was totally over twenty years ago and I’m over it. I’ve moved on. And I didn’t get an ounce of pleasure out of thinking that maybe a Girl Scout of the past created an explosive to express her dissatisfaction with the organization.
