poll question: what’s your favorite thing about Thanksgiving?

It’s right around the corner. Turkey turkey turkey! As my excitement builds, I want to know what excites you most about Thanksgiving.

By the way, I was about to make the obligatory turkey/tryptophan joke, which is required by the FCC and FDA in all Thanksgiving-related literature, when I actually decided to do my usual 10 seconds of research. According to the wikipedia article, turkey does not contain any more tryptophan than other poultry, and it contains far less than other foods, such as eggs, soybeans, and cheese. According to the article, the tryptophan in turkey has nothing to do with sleepiness, it’s the other 10 pounds of food and alcohol you consumed that make you sleepy. So fear not and grab an extra slice of turkey!

    My favorite thing isn’t on the list — a long weekend off. And judging by the JL statuses from other teachers, I’m not alone.

    Oh… And I’m still chuckling over that clip listed above, but that guy was a real turkey.
