Three Turkeys and a Microphone

Happy Thanksgiving! I am pleased to report that I did not succumb to temptation and eat any yams this holiday. I am feeling fine, well, almost. Thanksgiving in Santa Barbara was typically scientist-heavy which invoked deep feelings of nostalgia. Dr. Bertie baked (1) 22-lb turkey and deep fried (2) other turkeys. There was a lot of meat. Guests brought lots and lots of food (I contributed a Greek salad, cream puffs and a cheesecake) and the bounty was plentiful. A hippie presented a live cornucopia. Conversation included the best methods to effectively communicate/argue scientific principles, faulty FDA standards, Seymour Duncan designs and folklores.

Dr. Bertie and The Argentinian danced the mambo and Poge played the banjo. The scientists observed and heckled Grey’s Anatomy. Someone claimed the abomination Just Friends was hilarious so up it came on the big screen. The scientists thoroughly enjoyed it. I was going to stay the night but became uncharacteristically sneezy so I darted out sometime in the wee hours of the morn’.

Tonight the scientists will go bowling and I will eat desserts with the LA crew at the reception.

P.S. I didn’t solve the Thanksgiving Miracle.
