A Golden Turkey Award

Whew. Now here I sit, stuffed with turkey, dressing and a few other tasty items. Today was the day that my company hosted a dinner for everyone at work. I ate mine rather hastily, since I was needed to be one of the servers. All the management folks served the rest of the employees in a desperate attempt to “look humble”. Although, I have to admit, that I was feeling pretty humble when it came time for me to be relieved at around employee number bazillion (actually it was more like # 150 – but you’d be surprised how heavy turkey with stuffing and gravy can get - especially after you've just eaten). Now, I seriously need a nap. There’s nothing like L-tryptophan and serving the masses to bring the evening’s ambitions to a screeching halt (yes, I know that it’s a myth about the L-tryptophan in turkey making you sleepy – but it sounds better than “I ate like a pig and now I can’t work.”). They gave out company baseball caps, as well (mind you, this is a multi-billion dollar world-wide corporation – but I’m not bitter. Even after they cancelled my last quarterly bonus. Ok. I’m bitter. But I’m stuffed and that’s what counts, my friends. So, I’m thankful. Sleepy, but thankful.
For those of you who like to read bad movie reviews, Ken Begg’s got a deal going where you can sponsor Jabootu for a month and you get to choose the film that Ken so artfully takes his gleaming hatchet to. January is scheduled to be sponsored by yours truly and I’ve chosen "Billy Jack Goes to Washington". It should be interesting Don’t miss it..

You should have done a write-in vote for the Star Wars Holiday Special.

That would be completely Jabootuan.

True. But I've seen the special several times and have read a ton of reviews on it. Also, I wouldn't do that to Ken during B-Fest month. A person can only take so much suffering.
