It's always good to take some time to break your normal routine. This holiday was no exception for me. I had a good time being lazy for a few days.
For Thanksgiving, the family came to our house as we've done for the past several years. We fixed way too much food and I ate way too much. I smoked a turkey this year which was better than last year's fried turkey. It takes about 25 minutes per pound to smoke a turkey in my smoker, but it tastes oh so good. I injected the marinade like I did for the fried turkey and I think that dried it out a bit due to the punctures from the syringe. I couldn't even tell any taste difference because the smoke taste is so overpowering.
Saturday, some friends came over with their Xbox and Rock Band in tow. That game freaking rules with 4 people playing. I think the drums are the most fun to play even though I have no rhythm. Since the girls were being sissies, Brandon and I shared singing duties. I have a feeling that I am tone deaf also, but that didn't stop me from belting out some tunes. Kudos to Harmonix for making an awesome game. I think the Thanksgiving after party was better than Thanksgiving.
Sadly, tomorrow resumes life as usual. I feel revived and ready to resume life as a super ninja coding monkey.
