She's Got the Right Idea

The Ninja in Repose

I took this picture of the cat a week ago, but seeing it again now that I’ve filled up on turkey and stuffing has me thinking she’s got the right idea. The sun’s gone down so I’m not sure I’m going to find a sunbeam, but my folks do have a cushy recliner sofa that will make a fine substitute.

Meanwhile, my family appears to be thankful for aliens. We started out letting the boys watch Stargate, and now we’ve moved on to War of the Worlds (Spielberg version) after a brief debate about Transformers (Bay live action). The flicks have their flaws, but the rugrats are having a good time and it keeps them still while the rest of us are too sluggish from tryptophan to chase them.

Maybe now is even a good time to get some writing done, assuming the trypto haze doesn’t turn everything I type into gibberish.

    I read somewhere that, though the Thanksgiving dead bird has tryptophan in it, you’d need to eat an inordinate number of whole turkeys (hundreds…or was it thousands?) for it to do its dirty work on you.

    Sounds like a mission, Mike. How many turkeys does one need to eat before one suffers from a Dead Bird-Induced Coma? I don’t wanna look that up here in the…well, you know where I am.
