    Tryptophan Addiction

    Every year around the 10th of November, it starts; an undeniable craving for the luscious sleep-inducing turkey-drug, Tryptophan. Now, I'm not craving turkey, I simply need the pleasant drowsiness and sense of well-being that comes on after gorging on the bird., especially this year. Turkey is the best way to get this fix of course, as it also contains chemicals that speed up your metabolism so that while you are in your stupor, you body digests through the feast quicker, so not gaining as much as you might have without the saving graces of the great bird.

    All hail turkey, the master meat for all diet nuts!

    Not that I really care personally, but it's nice to know that the holiday season has some built-in weight-loss. *grin*

    Today, I get my tryptophan, and all will be well. *chuckle* Planning on heading over to a friend's house right after an oil change in our poor Eeyore (that'll probably include a full 2 hours' wait because we procrastinated with all the other lazy folks this Thanksgiving), but it will get done.

    Later, we'll be going on over to spend a few days at Keeb's mom's house. She'll be gone until Sunday afternoon, and we have permission to not only use her high-speed internet but also sleep on her wonderful pillow-top mattress (that we gave to her when she moved from our old place). Sleep will be rich tonight! *grin*

    Happy Thanksgiving all. Stay warm and safe!

    Update: It didn't take two hours to get the oil changed! *grin* Come to find out, if you procrastinate longer than all the other procrastinators on the planet, they'll all be done and you'll show up to the oil change place to a bunch of bored mechanics playing some sort of ball game in the repair bays. *chuckle* Yaaay for no waiting!

    And we had a fabulous time at our friends' place. *smile*
