Only in the mornings when I have to get out of bed. :-)

Our Thanksgiving traditions went to general hell when my grandmother moved 
from Chicago to Wisconsin--the first year, we had a reasonably 
traditional Thanksgiving at my aunt's. The next year was right after Mom 
died, my sister had to work and so did my husband, so the spouse and I had 
dinner with friends and then we played Black Death (You're a disease! Take 
over Europe!). Then there was the dinner out, where my aunt and I both 
managed to get food poisoning from the salad dressing, then last year was 
dinner with my dad's new girlfriend and her born-again son and 
daughter-in-law and their two children, my heathen self, my Jewish 
husband, and my agnostic sister.

At least I can't complain that it's been dull. :-)

I have to work this week, plus before anybody'd said anything the Consort 
and I committed to teach at KWCS which is this weekend in Madison. The 
spouse is off to have dinner with his family at his uncle's vacation place 
in TN. So I'm having dinner with the gf, although we haven't decided 
where, yet. Probably something nifty and ethnic, quite possibly dim sum. 
Friday is loading the car and driving the five hours to Madison.

I think the last time I cooked anything in particular for Thanksgiving was 
the year we didn't go anywhere and had corned beef and noodles with one of 
the college kids who couldn't go home for the holiday. This year if I make 
anything it will probably be a pumpkin pie.
