The 'Trots' and a Big Holiday Meal: a Better Combination Than You Might Think
It's Thanksgiving Day
, Thursday, Nov. 23, and there you are, sprawled across your Laz-E-Boy turning tryptophane cartwheels in marshmallow skies as your lard-laden gluteous maximus
sits motionless, save for the digestive rumblings of its neighbors to the north in eager anticipation of the crowning glory: a mondo slab of pumpkin pie with homemade whipped topping. Urp!
The only other thing moving on that reclinered ass of yours is the rhythmic thump of thumb against remote as you channel surf past the Thighmaster infomercials and Richard Simmons' Sweatin' Til Yer Moldy
holiday workout special. Oh, you had your chance. You could've gotten up early with the rest of Austin and gone to the 10th annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot
sponsored by Thundercloud Subs and benefiting Caritas
at 7:30am. But no. You slapped the snooze "just for 10 minutes!" and didn't even see this side of dawn until Aunt Bessie called you for turkey at 4pm. Snnnrrrxzzzztttt!
Oh my! It was only a dream! There's plenty of time to run your boo-tay off before you pile it all back on this Thanksgiving! The 7:30am time is actually registration time, with the run/walk starting at 9am. It all happens at the Zilker Park Soccer Fields this Thursday. You can get pre-reg info at all T'cloud locations as well as at RunTex Town Lake, 422 W. Riverside. Or, as the well-budgeted, over-advertised, and cheap-foreign-labor-contracting would say, "Just do
No More Silly Tamale Puns -- Until Tamale --
We lied. Sure, it's chili today, but it'll be hot tamale when you order up some swell Holiday Tamales
in your choice of flavors: bean, pork, chicken, and/or jalapeño from the fine folk at Manos de Cristo
, who provide low-cost dental care to low-income folks. Tamales will be available for the ordering through December 12 and for pickup on December 15. Chicken tamales are $7.50 per dozen and all the rest $6. 477-7454.
Holidazed & Confused!
The next few weeks in "Public Notice" will be brimming with all sorts of holiday cheer and compassion.
