Special Thanksgiving Edition of #DozVsTheDozen Airs Tomorrow at 10:05 am and I've Got a Nice Lil Appetizer for You Today
Tonight is usually one of my favorite nights of the year, Thanksgiving Eve, aka Drinksgiving. I wrote about this glorious night back in the inaugural year of DOL, and despite still fucking with the concept, I'm not really feeling up to it this year. For one I have a little bit of a cold, but mainly because I didn't go out last year due to the whole Covid pandemic situation. So a bunch of the people I'd run into haven't seen me since Drinksgiving 2019 when I was thriving, "slim," enjoying existence.
Two years later, I've blown up like Violet Beauregarde and have some Rudolph-like growth on my nose, so I'd rather stay away and give myself another year to get my shit together. (maybe my 30s will be "my time") Some of my friends will be like, "nobody cares, bro, just go out" well, I care. I'm embarrassed by what I've become but can't break this cycle because the last two years have broken my spirit. I'm trying to inch my way back, but my job, the GQP & multiple fucked up relationships don't help. Sorry, nobody clicked on a #DVTD preview expecting all this to get dropped into their lap, but then again, nobody will see this blog, so it's all good baby, baabbbbyyy.
Regardless of whether I go out tonight or not, the show must go on! Tomorrow, The Dozen returns to its 10:00 am time slot for Thanksgiving, which means #DozVsTheDozen XXII is moving up as well. 10:00 am is sorta early for me on a non-work day, so I'm posting this now to give everybody ample planning time. Plus, you can pregame tonight with #DVTD XXI.
I plan on waking up at like 9:55 am, maybe 9:45, to give myself ample bathroom time. Then it's time to play some trivia and go to my Grandma's for Thanksgiving since my dad cares more about his third wife than his firstborn!
Tomorrow's match-up should be a doozy: (2) Frank and the Frankettes vs. (6) UrMom. Since I'm posting this the day before the official match, the graphic isn't out yet. My spread for last match ended up being pretty spot on so let's see if I can keep it going....Frank and the Frankettes -2.5.
If a living person is reading this, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving Eve. Whatever you do, I hope you have a good time and stay safe (which includes not gambling on the Lions-Bears game). You can catch #DozVsTheDozen XXII tomorrow, November 25th, 2021, at 10:05 am EST on my IG at @dozonlife. That's instagram.com/dozonlife.
I can't wait to see you there! Happy Thanksgiving.
