Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers out there.

Had some seafood with the family last night. Never sure what time with my extended family might be like, but it wasn't too bad. Did come to the realization that my Uncle is really an 'old boys club' kind of guy when he asked where I was working these days and I told him, and then told him that my cousins use the product that my company produces. He thought that product might be good for him, and instead of asking me about how he would go about using it (since, you know, I support people who have technical questions about said product) he started asking my cousin. My cousin is a man. He only asks other men business related questions. He asked T and my brother an opinion about some business venture he has going on. He would never ask me that same question. None of this is much of a surprise, really, but I just had never thought about it that concretely. He really dismisses the opinions of women. He's on his third marriage, and I think this one will last because she's a helpless princess and he can take care of her. That makes him happy.

We meet at my parents at 3 today. I made the applesauce a few days ago and I just finished making some deviled eggs. Next I'm going to make our family's delicious carrot souffle recipe. Yum!

Hope everybody has a good day.

Sounds like my grandfather - my brother and I both changed degree courses from something more rigorous to something we were more interested in and he was moaning to me about how brother was "wasting his brain" and I pointed out he was happier in his new subject and doing well, as was I. "Oh, it's all right for you" (subtext: because you're a girl)
