Thanksgiving in Charleston

Yesterday was spent downtown.
We met my Charleston family (sans nephew) for lunch at one of our favorite places, Jestine’s Kitchen. Mac and cheese, green beans, and unbelievably yummy fried chicken, (which I ate in my systematically OCD way of picking off and eating the fried bits, picking the meat off of and discarding the bone and then eating all the meat).

We wandered and shopped King Street. Jessica had a list we needed to check off, I was just along for the walk.
Turns out that I did a little shopping too. What’s curious about this shopping is that I only purchased things for myself. That’s unusual for me, normally I purchase for everyone else first.
It was fun though, because I bought sort of silly and frivolous things.

As we walked past Copper Penny, I saw a scarf on a mannequin in the window that made us stop and go in. It was the only one in the shop and the girl climbed into the window to get it for me.

I may have a slight scarf ‘problem’…if I don’t reign it in, it could blossom into a full fledged addiction. (Surely, there are worst things I could be addicted to…so scarves might just be OK.)

Candlefish was so cool! They even have candle making classes! I diffused oils, so I never really burn scented candles, but they had some really lovely ones. Of course I bought these adorable bobby pins at the candle shop. And that makes a kind of sense that really doesn’t. Who really cares? I absolutely adore these little moon and star hair pins!

In a curious little boutique called lou lou, I bought this precious little headband.

We stopped for a post-shopping cocktail at the Thoroughbred Club in Charleston Place.
I had a delicious concoction called the Courtesan Cocktail.

After a visit to my Charleston family for more cocktails and time near the fire pit, Jessica and I went over the Tattooed Moose for a late dinner. Their french fries are cooked in duck fat. I mean, my God those fries!!

This beer though!

After all that we came home and watched Chadwick Boseman as James Brown.
If you haven’t seen it, you simply must!

Today, we’ve eaten breakfast, watched the parade, and gone through a box of old photos. Now we’re watching Hairspray while I write…

We’re going to Sweeny’s for dinner this evening.
Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!

My favorite James Brown song.
Please listen responisbly.

divided we fall #teamironman vs. #teamcap

Thing C and I are getting really excited about Captain America: Civil War.

Of course I’m “#teamironman” all the way. Cap might have a point about the “registry” but the scene in the first trailer when both Cap and Bucky are beating the hell out of Tony just makes me cringe.
I don’t want to hate Cap! He’s my second favorite Avenger!

Thing C, YBW and I had an interesting conversation about it while we were making breakfast Saturday morning. Thing C asked off the cuff if we were “#teamcap” or “#teamironman”. Well we know where I stand.
We are a house divided. (Well a couple divided anyway.)
YBW is all about “#teamcap”. He doesn’t believe anyone should keep tabs on the super heros.
He even likened the “registry” to the yellow badges of Nazi Germany.

I just shook my head: I can’t believe you’re playing the Jew card!

We discussed the way the Avengers are divided. How Nat and Clint are on different sides of the war is fascinating. We’re worried about Rhodey. We LOVE Don Cheadle.
Thing C, in true Libra form, never shared which team he’s on. Though I secretly think he’s on “#teamironman” with me…perhaps that’s just wishful thinking.
He’s especially interested in Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. We LOOOOOOOOVED him in the James Brown movie, so it’ll be cool to see how he plays Black Panther. Perhaps Thing C is simply “#teamblackpanther” and nothing more.
We’re also curious about this new Spidey.

Anyway. I feel anxious about this movie and where it will leave my beloved Avengers.
But one way Thing C and I ease that worry is by finding the most ridiculous Captain America: Civil War memes and share them with each other. I laugh more than I should…but I can’t help it. They’re so stupid!But so GREAT!

Thing C posted this one to my fb page this evening.
civil war meme
Bahahahaha!
Thing C began watching Friends on Netflix during winter break and we talked about the episodes and what he thought about them, etc. So this one is especially funny for us.

I saw one in which Tony says he liked Frozen better than Tangled and Cap just gives him the stink eye. In that particular case, I’m “#teamcap” all the way! I hated Frozen!

To show you the absolute stupidity of these memes I present this one.
captain-america-civil-war-memes-duck-season-rabbit-season
Y’all read that in Bugs and Daffy’s voices didn’t you?

They’re absolutely the most ridiculous damn things but we laugh like idiots. I’m just going to leave this here in case you want to laugh like an idiot too.

I am a Tony Stark girl like nobody’s business, but I also love Steve Rogers. This movie will be interesting and complicated. Just like my very dorky feelings regarding it.

It opens the weekend between YBW’s and my birthday and we’ll be there, popcorn and Coca Cola in hand to watch it!
