RTT: Huh?

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

That is what I feel like. Huh? What? This ride is spinning too fast and I want to get off. I can't seem to gather my thoughts and make sense of anything. This is why I love Keely and


Let's get started:

>The Z-Man made the Honor Roll. All A's and 1 B. So proud of him. Ceremony is this Friday at 2pm. Please don't let me forget. He's also one of the Stars of the Month. I missed the celebration last Friday at 2pm because I suck. And the Fall Choral and Band concert is this Thursday night. The Z-Man is busy for an 11 year old.

>The Princess did very well on her report card. There is a new grading and reporting system which I don't understand AT ALL. Our school is involved in various Pilot Programs which means we (the parents) are Guinea Pigs. It's not all bad. I know from her data notebook that she is almost reading on a 2nd grade level, in the first grade. She also kicks butt and takes names in Math. I will be pushing for her to move up to the advanced class.

>I'm still feeling a bit blah from last week. My womanly errr...functions are a bitch. I am unable to take the Pill or anything with Estrogen. I was hospitalized with Pulmonary Embolism in 2005. Or was it 2004? I try not to remember the exact date that the doctors told me I almost died. After millions of tests it was determined the cause was THE PILL. I don't really need to be on birth control seeing how I am lesbian and all. But seriously, this past year if feels like I only have one week out of the month where I feel normal. And it's getting worse and worse. Ask my family, they'll tell you. I can deal with the physical symptoms. It's the raging lunatic inside me that needs help. If you know of any homeopathic remedies please let me know.

>I'm so ready for Thanksgiving. My kids will be their dad. I'm still going to cook and hopefully my family (yes mom, I'm talking to YOU) will trek the 45 minutes north for dinner. My menu so far consists of Turkey (going to use a Rosemary & Garlic rub), macaroni and cheese (homemade), deviled eggs (my speciality), mashed potatoes, rolls and some special surprises for dessert. Oh lawd, I'm hungry just thinking about it. What are your plans for Turkey Day?

>Speaking of turkey's I was reading The Pioneer Woman's receipes and she brines her turkey. I've heard of this before and then I googled it and so many people do this. I never have. I don't think my parents ever did either. I'm starting to think black people don't brine turkeys. And you know what, it's okay. As long as you don't overcook the bird. There is nothing worse than shriveled up dry meat!

Now head on over to Keely's blog to see what the Queen of Random has going on today. Do you Random?

While I have never made the turkey..my husband has never brined a turkey...I'd have to goodle it too, don't know what it is either! I've heard of it, but still clueless here. Congrats to the kids on their grades. And as for the shriveled up dry meat...are we still talking turkey here!?

We tried brining our turkey last year and I just wasn't that impressed. I think if you don't do it perfectly, it just doesn't come out that well.

I think for holidays, it's better to stick with what you know. Try the new things on another weekend. :)

Dude, I get it. I yeah. The crazy. It blows.

I thought I was the only one with random things going on in my head :) it's good to get them out. As for the turkey I would stick with what you know for now.

#snort "There is nothing worse than shriveled up dry meat!"....heh. That's what she said.

Also, Have you ever had a FRIED turkey? I don't even like turkey and I.LOVE.IT
