This stuff was (to use a phrase I hate) the bomb. It was delicious and juicy and succlent and everything was holy and good about it. The sides were good as well with corn, peas, mashed potatoes and stuffing. For desert there was a choice of cheesecake or pumpkin pie and BOTH were amazingly well done.
Afterwards (and before) I played a bit of Skylanders with the kid and then I started trying to get him into other games. I introduced him to Jak and Daxter via the HD collection on the PS3. He quite enjoyed it and in fact called me up earlier today to ask if I could bring it along when I came over for dinner so he could play it afterwards.
Then I introduced him to Marvel vs Capcom (3) and of course he really enjoyed Spiderman (his Favorite Super hero) but told me that Deadpool was annoying because he talked too much.
When I informed him that Deadpool was much like spiderman, only more awesome he looked at me like I was fucking retarded and called me dumb. Whatever, I love Deadpool.
There will be no video games tonight, however there will be Turkey and Rice. I'm bringing over a freshly baked (Jell-o No Bake) Cheesecake as my divine offerings to the "make nice with the family" gods.
This will be the first real sit down dinner I have had with her family (I have gone over to watch boxing with them and brought pizza, but that doesn't count) so I'm curious to see how this goes - perchance might even become a bit nervous.
I'm putting on some fresh duds (read not my everyday hobo wear) and even semi shaved today. Oh yes, it's that type of day.
I've also finished up some more Xmas Shopping by hitting up Walmart who already had their "8pm" video game and blue ray prices in the system. I didn't buy any movies though - yes, I bought something for myself.
That's how I roll.
Next up on my radar is the big birthday date as I'm taking the little lady out on her birthday to a nice fancy dancy restaurant that she has never been too before. I've still got to pick up some form of a gift and I don't really feel that an extended battery for her phone screams I Love You very much so that might have to be a throw in Xmas gift instead.
My 3 days off have all been great, nothing to be grrouchie about.
I want to hit up Best Buy tonight at 8pm or so and see if I can luck out and get one of the PS3 3D Displays that they are CLXing out for $99 (they were $499 when they first came out 8 months ago). This would be a nice edition to the game room - the kid can watch 3D movies or play some games in 3D and be utterly amazed at how awesome I am. Does it get any better than that?
Tomorrow I work the closing shift and as such I should miss out on most of the actual holiday traffic and maybe have a nice quiet evening where I can get some work done instead of having to actually talk to customers my whole shift.
Only time will tell.
Happy (actual) turkey day folks.
Hope your holiday has been as amazing as mine!
