Black Friday 2011

Thanksgiving is not my favorite time of year. It's a time for family get-togethers, which for me means there's going to be way too many bodies in the house. It's not that I don't love my family; I just prefer to admire them from a distance.

This year my cousins Coco la Boosh and Ra are visiting for the week. Actually they're not so bad. Coco stays stuck to The Animator's Wife's side because she's afraid of my big brother Osiris (she's a Shih Tzu, but still smaller than us kitties). And Ra, my kitty cousin, has decided his base of operations will be the second floor, which is fine with me because it means I still get the craft room all to myself. But tomorrow The Artist and Mr. Law School are coming to visit and bringing with them Froylan and Orange Julius. That makes a total of 5 kitties, 3 dogs, 5 humans, and a baby for Thanksgiving. It's gonna be a full house!

The Animator's Wife, on the other hand, is very excited about this holiday weekend. Every year for the last five or six years she and The Artist do the early morning shop-til-you-drop thing the day after Thanksgiving (see their Black Friday shopping strategy here). This year is no different, although The Animator's Wife has a nasty cold at the moment so she might get started a bit later this year.

Of course, we can't expect her to take advantage of the Black Friday sales without offering any of our own, can we? Here's what you can look forward to from Crochet Kitten this weekend:
