How to make turkey for Thanksgiving dinner...by Katie

Last year we did it in the pot thingy, and we had to take out the blood. We put it in the sink to get it out. We put a lid on top of the pot thingy and we let it cook for I think it was like 6 or 7 hours. The pot thingy was in the kitchen on the counter. Use some mitt thingies to take it out. Cut it and cut the bone part too, and put it on a plate--I think with dessert and eat it. It tastes like a normal dead turkey.

Bon Voyage Bec-ster!

Next week it's my turn to have a "significant" birthday. I'm not terribly thrilled with this one...especially since I thought that such a milestone year would be accompanied by some physical changes. No, I'm not talking about everything heading south (which it is). I'm talking about the injustice of having a face where acne and wrinkles coexist. Come on! There have to be some advantages to getting older. I guess the external breakouts are a manifestation of my internal adolescent mentality (which I will never outgrow I am sure).

Anyway...I'm celebrating next weekend by escaping to a Marriott by myself for a scheduled nervous breakdown. Contrast this with my former roomie, Rebecca, who is celebrating her 40th year by departing on Saturday for CAMBODIA. Yes, my altruistic friend is traveling across the globe to help build homes and buy diapers for little Cambodian babies. My love, prayers and admiration go with you. I expect pictures and a lot of detail when you get back!
