turkey annnoyances

So, Costco gave me a turkey for Christmas, and I thought we could do a big dinner-y thing, with Jessica & Scott & Kyle & I. But now that I've made the damn turkey, everyone else is too lazy to cook anything, and too poor to just go out and buy anything. So now I'm all different flavors of annoyed. I think I'm just going to eat this thing by myself. I don't have any of the side dished to go with it, and I didn't stuff it (well I shoved it full of oranges & garlic) because Jessica made noises about making Mac & cheese. Plus I'm getting more annoyed because it's taking longer to cook than I thought it would. It's a bigger bird than I though. Because I got it for free, it wasn't weighed, meaning I had no idea how long to cook it. I grabbed the smallest one I could find, and I figured it was about 14-15 pounds, but it's been in the oven around 3 and a half hours and it's still not done. Though I did take it out a little bit ago because I thought it was done, though when I cut into it, the juices still weren't clear, so I put it back into the oven.

If this thing is like 18 pounds, which I think is likely, I am going to have soo much food leftover. I'm glad I'm not making all the sides. I could but I'm glad I'm not. I have to pick all the bones later, so I can make broth.

I think the guy I have a thing for at work likes me. I'm not sure still, but I get the feeling that he wants to ask me out. The problem is that we work together. When I asked Gina about being a shift supervisor, she said that I'd probably have to get transferred to another store. So then he and I wouldn't work together. Which would be very good. But then I probably wouldn't see him as much, unless we did start dating. Which is probably just wishful thinking on my part. Oh well.

Question of the Day: What do you eat with your turkey?
