First off, I hope everyone had a good thanksgiving, with no lumps (proverbial or otherwise) in the gravy. I’ve had my ups and downs, and I am still quite salty about the midterm election fiasco, but overall, things for me are a lot better than what other brothers and sisters across the country are experiencing at the moment. For that, I am certainly most thankful.
That doesn’t changer the fact that money is too tight to mention…
Oh well, quit your bitchin’, Chef!
With that said, let’s press on. Time ain’t on my side, as the passing of another birthday signals the beginning of the “Holidaze”. I only want one thing for xmas this year… okay, two. First, I want the new-age civil war between red and blue, and all of its throwback ideology to come to an end once and for all. The country can no longer take the abuse. Second, I hope to be able to keep this train going long enough to see the turn of the unheard of fifth year of Fufu Stew! I won’t jinx it, but I am so close to a personal goal that I can’t stand it anymore. Just a few more weeks…
In any event, since I don’t get many opportunities to get anything new out, I go for the ever popular comfort food. To refresh your memory, I whipped up this little ditty, complete with tunes new and old. Just a few 45s to tide me over, that’s all. Why not. Besides, it’s been a while since I visited the AntiDivas.
