Thanksgiving Score

My birthday fell exactly on Thanksgiving this year. That happens sometimes, and I have always felt it was an extra birthday present: A day off.  It’s nice, and not so many people get that same present. Irrationally, I feel a little special.

But the best present was cooking Thanksgiving dinner in Jim’s kitchen for a bunch of friends. We made all the traditional stuff, and it was just a breeze because Jim’s kitchen is so awesome.  Sandii and Simon and I were a fantastic team, and then our friends showed up to eat the ginormous feast we had prepared! Special mention to Mike for his sweet potato pie, which I cannot live without.

Also, for my birthday from E, Tickets to Evil Dead: The Musical. (Squee!) Also, flowers and jewelry and games and books from the Broadway Crew. It was quite a haul.

What’s extra super cool about a Thanksgiving birthday is that I can legitimately claim not to have had a party yet, and have one in November, when I need cheering up.  Results for everyone!

    My birthday sometimes falls on Labour Day. I was born on Labour Day which is a bit ironic – for my Mom anyway. But there is no party or feast or anything connected to Labour Day. Just getting together the first day back to school outfit.

    Aww, a Labour Day birthday is no fun! That’s the ‘It’s a holiday for everyone but teachers, and even then it’s not a happy holiday’ holiday.

    Happy day! Sounds like a wonderful time in Jim’s kitchen.

    There should definitely be parties in November. I might host one the first week as I’ll be without adult company for 7 days.

    Sometimes my birthday falls on Thanksgiving too, but it’s American Thanksgiving. I know the feeling though – I like to pretend it’s all for me.

    See? It’s a blessing, right, Nicole?
