As for me I will mow down some bird, mashed potatoes and corn. Then watch some of the football games. Each game has a star performing at half time, Lenny Kravitz is preforming at the lolJets vs. Pats game.



Might catch some tunes on Saturday nite...RRE and Strangefolk at the Capitol on the radar.



What'cha got going on?

Wednesday night: the weekend starts tomorrow night with DeadBeats-giving at Valentine's.
Thursday: "dinner" at my mom's at lunchtime, and then have dinner with my housemates and some friends later in the evening
Friday I have off from work and no plan at the moment, may be hitting a friend's birthday party.
Saturday I am probably heading down to see Liz, we may check out Stragefolk at the Capitol Theater.

Looking forward to a fun weekend!!

We are doing Thanksgiving dinner this year, so...lots of wine will be in order. :lol:

My Mom and brother and nephew are coming in addition to Rich's Mom, Dad, and brother.

We are making lots of tasty noms. Turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, creamed onions, sweet potato casserole, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, zucchini casserole, stuffed mushrooms, peas and pancetta, carrots...the list goes on and on.

Miss Emelia is wearing her Thanksgiving dress. I am excited to watch the parade with her! She will be having some green beans and sweet potatoes (not from the table...ones I've made for her in her baby bullet :lol: )

It's going to be a good day. I have a lot to be thankful for. :)

First and foremost, I refuse to feel guilty because my European ancestors migrated to this continent.

Secondly, it's just another day. What's the big whoop about dinner?

Third, prolly NRBQ at Toad's Place on Saturday. Prolly.

Holy moly Georgi...enough food for a army.


Were not getting nuts this yr with the food. Every other yr a shit ton is cooked and it ends up getting thrown out...well except for the turkey.

You guys go with a frozen or fresh bird? We roll with the fresh ones.

Some gluten-free choc cake.... we shall see if it's edible...

We'll get in Friday late afternoon, basically to drop our stuff and go have a nice dinner before the show. When we figure it out, we'll drop you a line - maybe have a drink with us before the show? send digits.

Going to a friends house for the "Better Homes & Gardens" variant of T-day. I say that because they really do create a picture perfect scene with all of the trimmings. I support with some desserts and breads.

Then, sometime later in the weekend, I roll up my sleeves and have a Second Thanksgiving. Usually make a few basic Thanksgiving staples (burn up that cheap turkey I just bought with my $25 purchase at A&P), try a few other cooing experiments, have a couple locals over, and just hang out. Very casual. Considering running my smoker just for the turkey.

wed: clean the house/we were going to do our annual splintered sunlight pre turkey day show but I think we're going to go see Red Skiles and the Electric Hookups instead (a bunch of local musicians getting together--they are supposed to be awesome).
thurs: we're hosting some friends as we usually do, turkey dinner with all the trimmings
friday: have to be up at 4 am to be at work by 5, since our new district manager has decided that we should open at 7 instead of 9. I doubt we're going to have a lot of customers but you never know. good thing is I can leave at 1, go to the gym, take a nap, then splintered sunlight at brownies
sat: work 3 to midnight
sun: I am actually off, so we might go visit some local friends who we haven't seen in a while
