Lest We Forget

For the first time in almost a decade, I'll be celebrating Thanksgiving. You see, not only is the fourth Thursday in November not a holiday here, unlike the US, a mammoth bird doesn't sell for $10-20. Oh, no. No, no no no.... A turkey that would have an American family giving you evil looks, here in New Zealand that bad boy goes for over sixty bucks!

At those prices, once a decade will probably suit me. :-)

At any rate, in honor of the approaching holiday, let's all revisit the Turkey City Lexicon. Solid, timeless advice on what NOT to do...

I'm determined to finish this damned thing by my birthday!

Lana and I were just talking about how reasonable turkey prices are here, and how we'd be foolish not to get at least one. Good eatin'

And good progress on the book. Congrats.

2nd December. I spent the whole (Southern Hemisphere) winter pottering away at this damn thing. Now spring is here, the sap is rising, and I'm about to drop a brick on the gas pedal!
