Plissken (Escape from New York)

Doesn't "Black Friday" sound like a 70s Blaxploitation version of "His Girl Friday?"

Ah, Thanksgiving. The day that separates those who have learned how to carefully pace oneself so that one can maximize the effects of the never-ending onslaught of foodstuffs whilst keeping oneself from being sick... and those who haven't. I am quite glad to fall into the former category.

I haven't in the past been a big fan of sweet potatoes, so I have tended to avoid them. A few weeks ago, however, I ended up trying some sweet potato fries, and I enjoyed them. I therefore set my resolve that I would try the sweet potato pie this Thanksgiving. I'm glad that I did; one of the main advantages of periodically trying food that one had not enjoyed in the past is that occasionally you find something that you've come around to. It is very strange; I understand what it is that I didn't like about sweet potatoes in the past, but simply no longer agree anymore.

And now for something completely different....
