I love my Christmas dinner; it's the best meal of the entire year. Do I feel guilty about stuffing myself stupid when there are people starving? Not really. Me having a miserable Christmas isn't going to help them is it? What's the point in two people going hungry when only one needs to?

I almost bought a pet turkey the other day.

Wait, you mean Mary and Joseph didn't have turkey and mashed potatoes to celebrate their kid's birth?

Sniffy said...

Mash? Are you out of your mind? MASH? It's ROAST potatoes for goodness' sake!

Mmmmmm chipolatas....

weenie said...

I don't feel guilty either - I've worked to put the dinner on my plate and I'm gonna eat it.

I eat until I'm bloated.

When I was a nipper, I could never understand why little starving kids had big tummy's.

It makes you sick, being so greedy.

I find it amusing that at a time that is supposed to mean 'caring/ loving/ thinging of others' half of you think 'FUCK 'EM!'

Lovely.

I as always will feel guilty when I eat and then feel even more guilty as I fall asleep in front of the telly due to over eating and the sedative effect of turk.

Mashed potatoes=American

Roasted potatoes=Brittish

Candied yams=Southern! with brown sugar, orange juice and tiny little marshmallows on top lightly browned. Daddy's favourite. :-)

Dave wants to try roasted duck this year. I'm afraid to try it. I don't like dark fowl meat. He'll have to cook it while the boy and I are in L.A.

dfndyo word verifications!

I sponsor a turkey every year. I can't bear (bare) to eat one that's been murdered for my benefit. Plus, I don't recall ever seeing anything about little baby Jesus ever eating one either. (see, I *do* have a conscience!)

I'm pinching your pic for today, by the way, as I think its fucking excellent and sums up my thoughts at this time of year too. Brilliant!

P&T - I'd be honoured - especially with yow skills in the arts and that.

Yeah, I usually feel bad in the sense of sick to my stomach after eating dinner and then looking forward to doing dishes.

I feel badly for the rest of the world really in the days leading up to Christmas. I dunno, I think I get moved by the spirit or something like that. Seeing nativity scenes for example always bring a tear to my eye. Not sure why. Not sure if it's happiness/sadness or a combo of all feelings.

Anyway, *sigh* it's whipped potatoes for goodness sake with creamed corn and turnips and....*god I'm getting hungry* stuffing without nasty giblets.

TP: ? What's sponsoring a turkey mean?

oh and candied sweet potatoes here, that the same as yams? I think it is...

Rowan said...

I think this one is my favourite so far.

MHN for short said...

Sweet potaoes and yams are very close and most folks think they are the same, so yeah same thing. :-)

Karen said...

Guilty? Nah. I usually participate in some sort of charitable Christmas giving-type thingy every year. Even though those that do more than me (like buy an entire dinner & gifts for a poor family) tell me that the people never say thank you.

Wait a sec... Last Christmas I spent alone in my apartment! There was no decadent turkey dinner! I don't have any guilt at all!

And hell, currently I'm an unemployed bastard... Am I not the one that all you turkey-munchers are supposed to be feeling guilty over? ;)
