Turkey Nuggets

I'm going to paint you a mental picture with my brainbrush right now. This is what's happening. I'm sitting in my childhood home. The kitchen. I'm in the kitchen, on the computer, drinking a chai, watching the Purina National Dog Show. 

The turkey just went into the oven. Moments ago, my dad said "Why does 'wisdom' have the word 'dumb' in it?" quickly followed by "I just thought that up right now. I just came up with that."

There are so many smells.

I've made the Jell-o. Jell-o making is the only job I'm to be trusted with. Apparently, since age 7, I've acquired no skills that are helpful in a Thanksgiving scenario. Whatever.

I've got some time on my hands, guys. A couple of days ago I asked you via Facebook to give me suggestions as to what I should doodle. I was in a vacation state of mind, what with the holiday coming up, and the intention was to bang out a few shitty doodles while listening to Taylor Swift's new album unashamedly.

I went a little overboard. I drew every single suggestion. More or less. I had a lot of fun doing it, and I seriously considered putting them up in my usual style - as in - the graphics you're used to seeing on here. But I decided that that would defeat the purpose of the exercise, and I'm nothing if not a lady of my word, and of exceptional grace. So I've put them here, in their original state. Above the sketch is the suggestion that inspired it.

Happy Thanksgiving, you filthy nuggets.

  1. Thank you for this. Seriously. Reading your blog is some of the best time I spend on the internet because it actually makes me laugh, instead of making me anxious: http://thejoyofcaitlin.com/2012/11/22/new-in-town/

  3. Oh my god you are so talented. I think I love you! Not even sure which one is my favourite, the stood up baby elephant and the slow dancing horses melted me a little though!

  5. Eep! My name! IN PEN! The rest was also very much good. This made my Thursday a more enjoyable experience all around. You're great!

    And reading my silly comment again I realize it actually does not make any sense, unless you use my brain when you read it, which in itself should pop some warning lights in both our camps. What I tried to say was: The Last Day talking to The Second Last Day before the apocalypse. Does that make more sense? Am I scratching myself behind the ear or is that you?

    Love and high-five!
