I’m no one’s Thanksgiving dinner!

If you’re planning on cooking this Thanksgiving but haven’t let procured your bird – or other creature – you might try one of the local sources for fresh turkeys listed by the Washington Post this past week. Another option they don’t mention is one of the vendors in Eastern Market. We purchased a goose there and were very pleased with the experience, in no small part because it yielded the following story.

After she placed the order, my darling fiancée had this exchange with the butcher.

“It’s fresh, right?”
“Let me put it this way. At the moment it’s still wandering around the yard enjoying its lunch.”

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
