Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, Americans! It’s just Dan and me today, so I’m making a turkey, fresh cranberry sauce, green beans, and salad. The smallest Trader Joe’s turkey was 12.5 pounds, so we’ll have plenty, heheh.

I’ve got the Macy’s parade on tv, but the coverage sucks, as usual. Too many celebs, too much “entertainment”, too many musical (ha!) numbers. Why, oh why, can’t they point a camera at the parade, and let us just watch? This has been aggravating me ever since I was a kid. I want marching bands, dammit! Not a crappy, lip-synced, musical remake of a crappy movie, or, god forbid, “Up With People”! Yeah, I know why, you don’t have to tell me. Gotta push the TV shows and musicals and acts and what-not. Oh well.

Oh my god, they’re actually SHOWING A MARCHING BAND RIGHT NOW! Please hold while I watch… Well, that was an enjoyable 30 seconds :)

Ok anyway.

Yesterday I acquired all three seasons of James Burke’s amazing TV series, Connections. I’ve been waiting and waiting for this show to be released on dvd. I remember watching it with my parents on a little black and white tv in the early 80s. Mom and I watched the first episode yesterday and it was just as mind-blowing as we remembered.

Here’s a screenshot from wikipedia (hope they don’t mind me linking)

Dan’s up now and we’re watching the parade and making fun of the crappy acts :) Why doesn’t Macy’s consult us? We would tell them how to un-suckify their parade. At least there have been a few 30-second marching band shots. We love the corn-fed midwestern flag girls! So cute!

    We missed the parades. We’re watching…no, they’re watching…a football game right now. (I’m getting a little introvert alone-time fix!) We had a lovely feast, and Scott’s dad and stepmom are here, along with John and Dan’s girlfriend. It was a lot of fun. Port and pie are still to come, but we’re all kind of full right now.

    I hope you had a nice day—I’m thankful for my wonderful family, including you, Dan and Henry.

    Homemade cranberry sauce is the way to go, and it’s not that hard either!
