1. What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food?
Boy, this has never come up in forum before, never come up at work, I don’t talk about it - I am… A vegetarian. No, I didn’t hop on the hipster-wholefoods-bandwagon. I’ve been a vegetarian for over 10 years. Myself being, well, my only living family member (aside from the family I helped create), I’m trying to dodge some serious bad genes, Colon cancer, heart disease - hell, the mortality rate for the two in the USA is so high, you’re likely to perish from one or the other.
Good grief, depressing for Thanksgiving, I’m not a preacher here - Eat your turkey (and all your meats), and enjoy it, and I sincerely mean that. Just (if you’re one of those ‘I hate veggies’ die-hard meat eaters) eat a few more plants for me. Sometimes. Do it for me. Better yet, do it for you and your family.
2. Are there any non-traditional Thanksgiving foods you do on Thanksgiving?
Stop right there. No. No Tofurky here. I find it odd to dress up vegetables and pass them off as meat.
I love stuffing. I love that cornbread Kitty was talking about. I love leafy greens, cooked in olive oil and garlic. Home made pesto. Coconut pie. Fresh Cranberry sauce,
3. Are you headed out of town for Thanksgiving, going to someone else’s house in your town, hosting a Thanksgiving dinner at your place or not celebrating?
Since my wonderful love was recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy, and me being veg, about a week ago we received a formal letter from the government, signed by the local community and our closest loved ones, that we’re banned from Thanksgiving for all time. There’s a small (18 people or so) mob outside our home right now. Only one of them has a torch, which, was disappointing.
4. Thanksgiving Day Parade . . . take it or leave it?
eh. If I was present, and moderately intoxicated, I might enjoy it. Otherwise, I’d rather not watch a stream of inflatable marketing material.
5. What is one thing you’re thankful for?
I’m thankful for a lot this year. I usually don’t ‘do’ the thankful thing. But I have a wonderful wife, two amazing kids, Industry talent that I often under-rate, a new home, a new job, and a Jeep - that, despite having a radiator that sprays coolant at other drivers, a power steering pump that sounds like a Blue Whale, and a Hemi engine that gets 5.6 mile to the gallon, still runs like a charm.
BONUS QUESTION: Have you ever thought, “I’d really like to see this movie (or this TV show),” searched Netflix, and had it actually be on Netflix?
Ever see the movie “Willow”? I would love to watch that again.
Oh wait? Actually found it on Netflix? “A Brilliant Mind” was recently on and “Dead Poet Society”
Does Nicolas Cage have Stock in Netflix? I watched a movie that started out "Nicolas Cage IS… Nicolas Cage, starring Nicolas Cage, WITH Nicolas Cage. It was some movie about the Romans. Nicolas Cage was in it for 4 minutes, and had two lines.
