  1. *I'll put up my Xmas decorations this evening* I'm doing mine tomorrow! Today is pulling everything out (I've got to scale back my enthusiasm for the after Christmas sales on this stuff) and taking a look at what I've got and trying to figure out where to put it. Tomorrow will be conning a friend of mine into helping me put up lights outside. *Hooray! I am so looking forward to the Christmas spirit... we really need it this year, imho* Imagine how great New Years will be!!! If only the inauguration could happen on January first!
  2. *My usual family Thanksgiving dinner now has ten adults and four kids. Okay, make that eight adults and six kids.* You count yourself as two kids? *I do?* I thought so-you tell stories about your nieces and nephews and your family in general. *We "adults" ended up playing different games throughout the night. I didn't get home until 7:00 AM.* Cripes! What kind of games did you play? Wait...maybe I don't want to know. *Miss G is a wreck at all times* *Yes, Rohanaka is the spreader of germs; poisoning her poor, darling family. That's what* *the "blech" was all about.
  3. *Hiya Minya! I never thought I'd hear the words "Chinese" and "turkey" put together in one sentence... I think now I've heard it all. ;')* A Christmas Story is bountiful in excellent terms!!
  4. *Now that truly is impressive when you consider you didn't know how many folks were gonna show up. How many did you end up with?* Ten. That seems like a lot to me, but you have lots of family around so it must seem like not that many to you. You have good family stories, you must have one from Turkey Day.I mean, Miss G (or maybe rohanka-now I can't find it!! ;( ) has the sick family (what was the origin of that anyway?), at my house Cindi accidentally set the yams on fire when she tried to flash broil the marshmallows, Bronxie almost had Chinese Turkey.... *Did you treat your dad well
  5. *Oh, that's a fine compliment, coming from you Mr. Grimes!* Ohhh, he's just jealous because he doesn't know how to cook anything.
  6. *Speaking of blechy cooking, how did your dad and friends enjoy their Last Supper?* I'll have you know that we recieved many, many compliments. There was just the right amount of food so that there wasn't a ton of leftovers (just enough for a turkey sandwich, which is almost better than the actual meal on Thanksgiving for me). So there. Lots of food, lots of laughter. The highlight of the day for me was that Cindi's Dad was able to attend. He hadn't been feeling too hot lately (and they have another six hour day of blood work and x-rays coming up) and she wasn't sure he was going to b
  7. *all blechy things considered.* What blechy things?
  8. *WOW! I'm "D" impressed! I'm impressed you actually have friends*. You just couldn't resist, could you? And on Thanksgiving, too. I'm going to go cry in my turkey. *I actually could eat most of that, which is saying a lot because I hardly eat anything of substance. The maple pumpkin pie sounds delish.* Well, if you can be here by about four West Coast time, you can have some. And the pie is delish, indeed. Gobble, gobble!
  9. *She's telling me we might have to go to the Chinese buffet.*
  10. *Hope you really enjoy that, Minya! Happy Turkey Day!* Thanks!! I think I will-it's been ages since I've seen any episodes and it will be a good thing watch over the weekend. Have a good Thanksgiving too!
  11. *So are you cooking Thanksgiving dinner for your dad this year?* My Dad, my best friend and her husband and his son and her Dad, another mutual friend of ours and two and possibly three other friends! Luckily, my best friend is a really good cook so between the two of us we're cooking a small turkey (which I just put in the brine), a standing rib roast, mashed potatoes, yams, corn souffle, two different kinds of stuffing, maple pumpkin pie and chocolate pie. The local emergency rooms will be on alert. *If you are, you should throw in some extra treats for him. He deserves them fo
  12. *For you non-MSTies out there it?s the robot Crow from Mystery Science Theater 3000 dressed as a turkey. MST3K, my fave show, debuted 20 years ago on Thanksgiving, and for that I am truly thankful* Me too! I had no idea they premiered on Thanksgiving. About fifteen or so years ago, Comedy Central (or maybe Sci-Fi) used to run the show on Saturday mornings, and I spent many a weekend morning practically spitting out my cereal because I was laughing so hard. There was one in particular, and I think it was The Touch of Satan that had me busting up because of the voice overs. Ahh, good times.
  13. I couldn't find a good, classic film Thanksgiving message clip, so I'm using this instead. A warm, wonderful Thanksgiving to you all!
  14. *Awwwwww... isn't there any way to grant them a pardon?* I know! I wish I didn't find them so delicious. Every time I look at this I crack up-there's nothing quite like a disapproving animal face.
  15. *I love his hair in this one. lol* I think that picture is where the people at Nickelodeon got their inspiration for the cartoon Jimmy Neutron. Coincidence? I think not. Also, these guys wanted it expressly understood that they DO NOT approve of this Thanksgiving thing- Mmmm..delicious!
  16. *I found Drop Dead Fred to be nearly impossible to sit through.* I love this movie, but admittedly, Rik Mayall had a lot to do with that. I've thought he was tops since watching the Young Ones in high school (BBC, not Cliff Richard )
  17. *The question is, how will you be able to sleep tonight?* In a nightmarish haze. Naw, I always listen to NPR as I'm falling asleep, and I'll just wait until the BBC World Service comes on. There's something about that newscast that I find immensely relaxing and comforting.
  18. *Well, I'd like to be able to tell you that I was in Chicago last week and on "the short list" for appointment as Secretary Of State (with a side trip to pay respects to Professor Ayers) but, of course, I can't say a word about it.* No, no, no of course you can't! Nudge, nudge, wink wink. Say no more! (and I'll stop there and so resist the urge to do the whole Monty Python sketch) Besides, I'm pretty sure if you told us, you'd have to kill us. *("I am not a revolutionary subversive! I am just a classic film fan.")* Uh-huh. That's what they ALL say. *I think the Google Toolbar
  19. *Feast your eyes! Glut your soul on my accursed ugliness!* I'm feasting as I write this. I have a pretty good imagination, so I can come up with some really ugly pictures.
  20. *And we probably don't even know the half of it, heh?* Totally! And I'm sure it involves oooh, weird things.
  21. Kyle, I'm worried about you. The links that would show up on gmail when I have stuff in my inbox from your thread always made sense up until now-Underwear by Kyle, classic movie posters, that sort of thing. The one that was at the top of the page this time was a link to an ACLU site and it was attached to a story titled "Are You A Terrorist? Check ACLU's list!". Is there something you haven't told us? Is that why you took some time off? Have you been hanging around with William Ayers?
  22. *Well, now I've a better idea of what might bring a smile to your face, Frank.* So now we know part of what makes him smile is dark and also is accompanied by a Huey Lewis soundtrack. Dark indeed.
  23. *I stuck a mannequin in her place, I?m surprised you even noticed the difference.* HILARIOUS! Poor Grimey, always having shots taken at his dream girl. As for Ricky Nelson, I was never a big fan of his music, but I always though he had the dreamiest eyes.
  24. *"Once in a While" is better than nothing.* Agreed! I love the image, and it reminds me of a place that used to be around when I was a kid. It was called Pizza and Pipes and they would show Phantom Of the Opera and at some point a guy dressed up as Lon Chaney would come out and play the organ. This made me cry because he was pretty scary. Luckily I can look at him without crying anymore and I can now appreciate the poster.
  25. *Are you Abby or Martha?* Martha Brewster: [to Mortimer] One of our gentlemen found time to say "How delicious"! [after finding the dead body in the window seat] Mortimer Brewster: But - what happened to him? Martha Brewster: [cheerfully] He died.
