I know this is a bit thin, given my shabby posting record these last couple weeks, but whatevs…
I cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner, I’ll have you know.
My cranberry sauce was great (it was just standard cranberry sauce). I also soaked figs in tea for multiple hours. And then roasted them. Something to behold, my friends.
Something to behold.
Anyhoo - having been away from Chicago for, like, years, I got out of the habit of reading The Onion, but this week’s main headline is definitely worth it:
Blue Angels Hold First-Ever Open Tryouts
87 Dead, 243 Injured in Day 1 of Weeklong Event
And my favorite part:
“Mark my words—I’m going to be a Blue Angel if it’s the last thing I do.”
And this Sunday, that dream came true for an incredible 43 seconds, as [Harold] Enderby got the chance to fly the famed Blue Angels’ F/A-18 Hornet directly into the tarmac during the first day of the Navy’s most dramatic—and colorful—audition program ever.
I often can’t get though reading things I find funny out loud - but I nearly lost my mind trying to read that.
In other news, it’s cold.
