Happy Thanksgiving!

So, I caught ANTM last night but missed Project Runway. I may spare you all my recap of the former, unless I'm in a giving mood tomorrow. I hope to catch PR on one of its many reruns, and then perhaps I can give you all a double dose of (semi-scripted) reality.

Now, it's time for that fall PopEye tradition where I refer you all back to my very first Thanksgiving post,
A Thanksgiving PSA from Tom Turkey. Sure, it's totally dated. Yet, strangely timeless. At least in my eyes. I still think of it as my best post ever.

Ah, what a warm feeling to know that I peaked less than six months after my foray into blogging! I'm enjoying the downhill slide, and I thank you all for letting me take you down with me.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to mentally and physically prepare myself for the post-Scattergories family brawl that will take place later this afternoon.

Happy Thanksgiving! I love that none of your commenters from back then have stuck with you either apart from beloved WP. It was funny, you're funny, models are funny too in that man, why am I wasting my time watching that shit way.

Thanksgiving means Festivus is right around the corner! Happy TG!

Happy thanksgiving to you, miss. I've never played "Scattergories," but if it's anything like dodge ball, I bet Grandma's going down.

Happy Thanksgiving! I love family games after a big feast. Someone's always cranky - and they usually lose!

The giant wattles suit him somehow.

Thanks for reposting that for those of us laggards who didn't see it the first time. If turkey leftovers are silver, reheated Thanksgiving posts are gold.

And now, with supreme turkey envy, I wish you Happy Thanksgiving.

I hope you're not in the midst of a family brawl! But then again, maybe you're having fun in one. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yeah, that post was pretty damn funny! Glad you linked back to it.

I'm drunk and it's now 22 minutes after Thanksgiving, but I hope it was a good one!

A classic post that was worth revisiting.

Hope you survived Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! Hey, have you ever seen that Mr Bean Christmas special? The picture of Turkey/Kramer reminded me of it. It's sooo funny!

Moxie said...

That was great. Hope T-Day was a great one and that you kicked ass at Scattergories!

"No one understands the history of Thanksgiving. No one understands the history of this turkey drug." HAHAHAHAHAAAA

I think it's timeless. And he won't become un-crazy. I assume you know of the existence of this song, which is amazing.

Hmm. Those comments ar actually more cogent than half the stuff Cruise actually says.

So hope you enjoyed your family and holiday....just getting caught up after being off-blogs for a few days

Hope you're having a great Thanksgiving with the kin. And PR will run five times a day, so you won't get behind.

Love your Seinfeld references. One of my favorite episodes. "Put a fork in me. I'm done!"


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
