As you feast upon bird today and sleep it off, have a great and happy holiday and don’t forget what this day is for: remembering how our ancestors raped and pillaged the Native Americans and their land.
Oh, and it’s about fellowship and togetherness. Although what would Thanksgiving be without a little dysfunction? Huh? How about just a smattering, then?
I’m TiVoing the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and I’ll be working from 12-6 and if a customer so much as cops an attitude with me or trots out their, “You’re working on Thanksgiving?” spiel (Bitch, I’m getting paid time-and-a-half! I work every holiday! $ is good!), I’ll drop-kick them.
Then after work is over, I’ll be feasting at my sister’s apartment. It’ll be my mother, myself, my sister, her boyfriend, and their roommate and his girlfriend. They’re frying a turkey, a ham will be cooked, my mother’s making potato salad, I imagine stuffing will be involved; pumpkin pie will rear its decadent head. So whatever you do today, have fun, be safe, and enjoy yourself. I’ll also be regaling myself with xm’s Special X channel of quirky novelty Xmas songs.
BTW, I can safely say that The Office is my favorite comedy on television. It is aces all around.
Also, the company that made the leg lamps from A Christmas Story actually bought the house the movie was filmed in (on eBay!) and they’re holding a fundraiser/movie screening/Q+A with some of the cast this weekend in Cleveland. The company plans to restore the home to its original look in the film (it’s looking good so far) and then turn the home into A Christmas Story museum! Really cool!

I’m off to watch a TiVoed episode of The Simpsons and then hit the hay. I’ll leave you with this timeless holiday image. From Norman Rockwell’s famous 1943 Four Freedoms series, this piece is entitled “Freedom From Want”. Enjoy the holiday everyone.
