Heh. I’m thankful that I’m the FIRST to post a message on Thanksgiving! Take that, Fatwa!

Happy Thanksgiving, GN!

Just saw that; you were up virtuously early for a holiday, sir.

Happy Thanksgiving, Gerbil Nation!

I’m sure grateful for having met all of you…especially LambiePieK.

Hope that the lot o’ ye -- and yours -- have a terrific day. May your turkeys be moist and your pecan pies not molten. 😉

Happy Thanksgiving, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven the First, and Fatwa!

I’m thankful that I’ve met the lot of y’all, both here and IRL. You truly are a wonderful group of people.

Heard from Teh Younger last night. He’s hosting Thanksgiving dinner for those of his search and rescue team that are staying on campus. Yesterday he told the person in charge of the turkey to plan for 13 people. As of last night it was 18.

Hai, Sven and Paddy!

Paddy --

Hope you’ve got your menu and food prep schedule sorted out. 😉

Yep, pretty much. The roasted root veggies are done and the dressing/stuffing has been made. The turkey will go in the oven in a couple of hours. Beverages are chilling. Although Mrs. Paddy asked where the Harvest Salad mix from Trader Joe’s was. I told her it was wherever she put it. That began the “I told you to pick it up”, “No, you didn’t” discussion. She’s now out looking for a market that’s open.

I’m working on the pasta, cuz nothing says Thanksgiving like a big plate of spaghetti.

So long as it’s a big plate, I see nothing whatsoever wrong with spaghetti on Thanksgiving.

Hey, Mac!

I lurve me some turkey sammiches; they’re one of the few proper uses for mayonnaise. (Along with chicken salad, tuna salad and BLTs.)

Brenda likes mayo with her french fries; I think she’s a crypto-Belgian.

I am truly grateful to call y’all my family -- ‘cuz that’s what you are.

*mwah!*
