Three days before you'll be packing your gullet with butter and gravy and rolls -- in other words, the whitest edibles ever devised by man. Fortunately, there's still plenty of time to load up on food, frankly, that's a hell of a lot more vivid and interesting than sweet potato casserole.
Our advice? Get yourself to J-town today and start inoculating yourself against boring at tiny, delicious Suzu Noddle House -- salmon sashimi, followed by a bowl of peashoot ramen. Who knows? The taste might carry you through Thursday, meaning you'll still have a smile on your face when your uncle Martin describes how Sarah Palin is saving the country from godless usurpers.
Worth a try, anyway.
