Happy Turkey Day
November 24th, 2011 by slangon

Thanksgiving is upon us, and I have to say, this is one of my favorite holidays of the year. It combines all the cool things (stuffing yourself on food and booze, watching foosball all day and hanging with family) but doesn’t have a lot of the stressful things involved in other holidays like Christmas (figuring […]
