My Thanksgiving 2008 Recap

From singing at the Simpsons to music and Manny at the Marasigans, Thanksgiving 2008 was an excellent time well spent with my beloved family.

From singing at the Simpsons to music and Manny at the Marasigans, Thanksgiving 2008 was an excellent time well spent with my beloved family.

Top 5 Post-Thanksgiving Thoughts

  1. Forget the tryptafan! It’s not all the turkey’s fault… We have some terrific cooks in our family that would make any turkey pass out. And like every other year, my narcolepsy was largely self-induced by a stomach sucking down everything in sight and a hunger to match.
  2. Introducing Megan to the family was very fulfilling for me. I’m thankful that everyone was kind and hospitable in welcoming her in to our little circle. Something tells me she’ll fit right in for a long time to come. 😉
  3. Aunt Grace and my Mom are cheaters at karaoke. That’s right, I said it! Not because they are horrible singers or anything but because they consistently got 98-100 scores on the Simpsons’ ultra-sophisticated karaoke mic while I tanked on scoring despite my angelic singing voice. Uncle Ed and I’ll be training all the way until next year’s match to make sure this doesn’t happen again. (Note to self: practice “Eye in the Sky” by Alan Parsons Project)
  4. I think that Uncle Tony, Uncle Nap, Dad and their spouses can probably party harder than I can at this point. At the allegedly peaking age of 27, I’m not so sure I can keep up with those guys and their Las Vegas stories.
  5. We sure know how to raise’em! While visiting the Marasigan’s for the first time in ages, I learned that my cousin Troy played Carnegie Hall in New York City this past September while also accomplishing a Top 10 finish in the nation with his AAU basketball team. Props on coaching (and parenting) to Uncle Tony and Aunt Joanne! Miss you guys!

How was your Thanksgiving this year?
