Just got this in my inbox:
I want to remind you that Thanksgiving is coming and to continue this tradition although we're far from home, we're organizing a dinner at one of the American restaurants in Madrid. If you're interested, please come to the office and let us know before Wednesday, November 10. The cost of the dinner will be approximately 21€ (which you would preferably pay when you sign up).
Let's see. I could haul down to the office RIGHTNOW and fork out $25 for a dinner that will probably not even be a reasonable approximation of American food...or I could go to KFC and get a meal for two for $8. HMMMM. WHAT DO YOU THINK.
(I'm just mad because I actually would pay about $20 just for stuffing. However, I doubt that they would give me enough to satisfy my jones, and I would thereby be left wandering down strange streets of Madrid, partially bloated and mumbling Spanish profanity in a carbohydrate-soaked haze.)
I actually did stab myself. In the tongue. It really hurts. I am an idiot.
