Happy Tofurky Day!

Thanksgiving is always my favorite holiday.  No rampant commercialism or bubbling patriotism, just food and family.  This marks my first Thanksgiving as a vegetarian.  I was having a bit of a veggie existential crisis over whether I would make a Thanksgiving exception and eat the bird or opt for faux turkey.  I ultimately decided that I would  remain meat-free and got some strange faux turkey log.  Given that last year I was in Sumatra eating steak and durian for turkey day, I am used to going without the traditional bird.  In any case, Happy Thanksgiving to all.  I will close out this entry with a great story about Butterballs in Baghdad.

And the idiots are concerned whether they are halal (or maybe kosher)
