Last holiday season, I took a long ride all the way down to Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. Why? Because I wanted to see what these folks who clearly have way too much disposable income had done with their holiday decorations that year. Sure, these are all really extravagant, lovely displays but isn’t it just a tad bit excessive? Especially last year when we were still in the throes of a massive recession. Ah, who am I kidding, you don’t own these sorts of home without the bankroll to be able to pay the electricity bills that come with these light shows.
This is the turkey we had for dinner last Thanksgiving, a turkey we hadn’t planned on having but ended up making anyway. We were gonna do a Chinese-heavy Thanksgiving dinner since my brother was moving into his new apartment the day before and wasn’t inclined as such to go the whole traditional Thanksgiving route. But the fates conspired to force him into the kitchen for hours when our father’s friend gave him a frozen turkey. I mean, what were we gonna do, not cook it? Thus, we ended up doing a Thanksgiving that was pretty much the same as it always is in the Wong household – some traditional, some Chinese, all good.
And on that note, Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Eat well – I know I will!
I was walking from the G train along Metropolitan Avenue to Fette Sau for some pre-party eating and, for some reason, I just felt like taking this photo. It was well since my Project 365 ended (all 365 photos were taken but I got lazy and stopped posting months ago) so it’s not like I was compelled to take a photo that day. Dunno, maybe it was the cool reddish sunset breaking through the overcast skies. Or maybe it’s the sad, solemn (in my mind, anyway) Mets fan waiting to cross the street.
