Turkey Day

Yesterday there was an incident that may have involved me taping a piece of bacon to Katie. It's also quite possible that Kelly took pictures of it. It would also be reasonable to assume that I had planned to post about it today. But I will not. I'll save it for next week.

Instead, I want to wish all of you a great Thanksgiving tomorrow, or just a REALLY AWESOME Thursday if you don't celebrate T-Day. I don't plan on being anywhere near a computer and if I am, I won't be in any state to post.. so, yes, tomorrow is a vacation day for me from both work and blogging.

I once read that there is actually more trytophan  (the stuff in turkey that's supposed to make you sleepy) in beef than in turkey, and that it's generally the holiday over-eating that makes people so lethargic. Is that true? I don't know. It really doesn't matter, since either way I'm going to be eating enough turkey to put a cow to sleep. If cows ate turkey.

Carnivorous cows.. now that would make for some scary farms.

    Turkey has more tryptophan than beef. Beef is relatively high in tryptophan, but even cheddar cheese has more tryptophan than beef.

    Are you sure? A quick google and I didn't find anything that claimed turkey has more tryptophan than beef.

    I'd like to find some sort of chart though. This information HAS to be available in chart form.. right?

    I JUST watched something on CNN Headline News about this. The reason people get so sleepy on Thanksgiving is a combination of several factors, the two big ones being over-eating and travel.
