Why does everyone that you know casually or through work ask whom you are spending the holiday with? I find it so strange. I never ask that fucking question. If I don’t know their friends and family, how interesting is that response going to be? So I have started to explain, when asked, that I spend it with all my exes. 'Cuz we all get along so well.

Everyone thinks they should know how many of my kids (there are four) I am going to see. This year it happens to be zero. It never stops there. It just gets stupider. The next thing I get is the, “So what are your kids doing?” question. Why should you care? I have learned to answer, “My daughter and her husband go to a different relative they hate each and every year. They bring the kids. Then they poison the folks and steal anything that isn’t tied down. They come home put the shit for sale on E-bay. The best part? They can afford to give great Christmas presents!” That generally does it. After that diatribe no one asks about my other three.

Whatever you are doing today, enjoy yourself. Just don’t ask where anybody else is. You might run into someone like me who will share way too much miss-information.

Happy Thanksgiving! The WTIT Blog will return tomorrow with our Dating Profiles feature. Better buckle your seat belts for this one. It could even be (dare I say it...) mildly amusing! Or maybe it will be completely forgetable. Join us and see. Tomorrow.
Same time. Same blog.

So, where did you go? How many kids did you see? How many exes did you see? Were there any blog avatars there? Was your maid there? Anything explode? How much did you eat? Did you get in an accident? Did you get an x-ray and a lawyer? How's that religious e-card business going? Do you like pie?

I am still here. I see four kids, two grandkids and who cares about exes...Not them. I saw neither Judd nor my maid. Hmmm. That could be the rub. Nothing exploded, I ate too much, I hate holidays without my kids,and it depends on the pie.

I'm still waiting for the post about the wife number 2 look-alike maid. Man, that was creepy.

Oh and ho ho ho. We went to Alec's step-uncle Barry's. Guess who's getting a flat screen for Christmas?

I will do the look a like thing. I would have before, but I didn't have a pic of Geb. I found one of us recently.

I give up. Who's getting a flat screen?
