Thanksgiving 2.0 has been pushed to tomorrow.
Which means I have more time to plan (“OH GOD LOOK TURKEY BREAST ON SALE!!” is not planning.). (EDITED: and this goes above the ? for obvious reasons: it’s a 6.5 lb bone in full turkey breast. And it’s gorgeous.) What should I do to the turkey?

One of the other women asked me what I was going to wear, so I emailed her that I would probably wear something along the lines of this. Conservative but slightly stylish. Since I haven’t been told where we’re going I also don’t know the decor and ambiance… I ran the suggestion by Matt, and he said… “I don’t know. I think you should wear something that...

Yep. Today I have neither.
At the bar tonight François told us about when he and his first wife had no heat. She wouldn’t allow him to put her fur coat on the bed for warmth, and the ensuing fight “revealed out the monster in her.” He moved out less than a month later. True facts: At this point I would divorce anyone that kept me from heat.

They’re replacing the boiler (STILL - over a year now) and three weeks ago they installed a temporary boiler, the real new boiler waiting until fucking Con Ed comes and like, changes something? That involves digging up the sidewalk? Whatever. Anyway, a note went up on Wednesday saying that water and heat could be intermittent, which was not a surprise as our hot water had been out since...

For inexplicable reasons, I’ve had two bottles of Bloody Mary mix in my fridge for six-ish months. From two different events. And as Matt and I are not “drinking at home alone before noon” nor vodka people, the bottles have languished. Until I put one of them in the chili. And GOD. It tastes amazing.
