I changed my mind and decided hat I did want to go out to dinner so I did a local Google search to see what was open on Thanksgiving that wasn't fast food or required a reservation. I picked the Cracker Barrel, lol!!!!
Grabbed my book and enjoyed a full meal for $7.99!!! I got the Thanksgiving Special ~ Turkey (duh), Ham, Stuffing/Dressing, 2 sides of your choice mac & cheese & steak fries =), a drink and Pumpkin Pie for dessert, and the corn bread and biscuit basket that they always have. I still have left overs =). My mom felt bad that I did that but we always eat out on Thanksgiving anyways and she always instilled in me to "love my own company" & "entertain myself" and I'm comfortable doing at this point in my life. My Aunt Jean always says "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show"! It's so true. I'm thankful that I have the courage to eat out alone or go see a movie by myself. I think every women should be able to enjoy her own company! Grab a glossy magazine or a good book and do you! I just need something to read not as "armor", but to occupy myself. I love myself but I'm not that damn interesting!
I also didn't stress Thanksgiving Day because I knew the REAL PARTY was Thanksgiving night!!! I got to meet up with Ms.Bombchell ATL- Atlanta's Sexist Geek! My cousin Monica & our roommate Malaika and we went to Opera Nightclub for an event being hosted by Rashard Lewis & some members Orlando Magic. (They beat the Falcons that night so I thought they'd be in a good mood and "buy the bar", but no, lol....
I'm so happy that I Googled the event and printed out passes! The standard $20 cover fee down here is starting to irritate my broke behind.
CLUB SPY CAM *FAIL*
OPPS...I forgot that I was taking video in the dark!!! It looked ok when I was recording...
I'm soooo upset that I didn't take any pics with Michelle :( Or any pics! :( Just stupid dark video...
I'm starting to feel more comfortable down here, which is makes me happy. I feel like I made the right decision. I have my moments when I wanna pack up and go home, then I think about the 15+ hour drive and deal with it.
I can't wait for Christmas! This is the first year that I'm excited b/c I'm going to go home for a week!!! I have to run. Tonight is the Thanksgiving Weekend Finale at the Velvet Room....
This video cracks me up, but I wonder? Does this baby know numbers, ABC's, or just how to mimic his Momma gettin' ready to go to the club!
