I hate the holidays

So my friends and I decided that this year we were all too tired to bother cooking for Thanksgiving. Let's go out to a restaurant instead! It never occurred to us, living as we do in a tourist burg, that every freaking restaurant except the ones my friends all hate (Denny's, Cracker Barrel, and the Crab Shack) would be closed. Even McDonald's was closed. Even all the pizza delivery places were closed. Except for the three above-named gastronomical devastators, this was a freaking ghost town.

I hate the holidays.

So how did y'all like those Big Diarrhea Special Deluxe Beef and Bean Burritos, from 7-11? (mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm) Surely they were open.


Here, the restaurants are always open. But Thanksgiving can present other perils. Once, long ago, a friend and I went to a nice little French restaurant for Thanksgiving. It was packed, and we had to share a table with a dorky guy taking his half-witted old mother out.

And then the waiter said that, since the special turkey dish was not selling as anticipated, the cook/owner was raising the prices of all the other dishes to the price of the special...

I had a frozen calzone from my friend's refrigerator. We're going to try to go out tonight if the entire city hasn't been laid waste by Black Friday shoppers.

Well hell, then there should be some good looting possibilities, food included (no not leftover crap)

We decided to wait until tomorrow. Neither of us feel well, and the post-shopping traffic isn't worth fighting through just for a table at Friday's.

Excellent idea. Would not like to read..
