Mukasey Applies for the Position

President Bush eagerly accepts the 'application' from now Attorney General Michael Mukasey.

Aaaaaaaaand speaking of turkey my friends and I got together this Saturday and celebrated a beautiful holiday we refer to as Friends Thanksgiving.

Many friends of mine don't have family who live close enough by that they can go home and have their prospective mothers fix them up a holiday turkey, and some of us that do have that luxury, kind of dread it because our families are crazy. It's a lose lose situation.

I happen to love thanksgiving (despite my crazy family), so I invented the holiday 'Friends Thanksgiving', a holiday so nice, I do it twice.

So the gang came over on Sunday and I barbecued a whole turkey (it came out amazing, slow smoked, dark mahogany color, deep rich flavor...unbelievable), brewed up some gravy, and made enough stuffing to feed all of Boston. We had a great time, I might have even had TOO good a time, as I had to work on Monday, but was still doing whiskey shots at 10 at night. That was a tactical error.

Riding into work on the train I bumped into two girls I worked with, and had to confess that I was still a little tipsy from the night before. Which as you professionals know, it just means the hangover is coming a little later on, as opposed to right when you wake up.

In the end, I recommend a day like Friends Thanksgiving, a lot less stressful than the real thing, and the holidays are far more fun when spent with the loved ones you chose, as opposed to those thrust on you (not that I don't love my fam, I do, it's just trying at times is all).

My family was so trying I quit hanging around them. I call it my "Thanksgiving Day miracle."

Thanksgiving with the family is why whiskey was invented.
Nothing says "what I'm thankful for" more than an drunk, angry, political argument over a bird carcass.
