Another thanksgiving come and gone, another cold winter night in Long Island. Thanksgiving is a time where all our family friends who we grew up with get together… the ritual is very simple. The parents occupy the main room, the men get together and talk about politics, the women get together and talk about the men… and the kids (anywhere from age 10 to 30) get isolated in one of many quarantined zones to talk about more important matters… like pop-culture, anecdotes (exaggerated of course), and when the next course is gonna arrive.
It’s just so wild to see how much we’ve all grown … yet it’s the same ritual, and it’s great, cuz it’s familiar, it’s fun, and it’s…. i dunno, i need another f word…. f***in awesome. The food was OFF the hook as usual. Since it’s Egyptian style thanksgiving, that usually includes a turkey, and a bunch of egyptian dishes… corn bread? never. But this year we had some mashed potatoes, although Pete claims that they had it last year… I have no recollection of such things.
Here are some photos below, of the evening:

Happy Thanksgiving, to all… and to all a good night.
Wait wait.. while I’m at it… lemme make a shout out
So this goof-ball with the funky hair is my buddy Craig… he wanted a shout out so he’s gonna get it! So Craig and I were friends back at NYU, and were reconnected on 9/11/01… it was a tragic day but got me reconnected w/ an old buddy.
