Some last minute Thanksgiving thoughts
To all the people who have been in line at Best Buy since Tuesday waiting for Black Friday. Even if you save $500 you are still an idiot.
Thanksgiving marathons used to be a big treat but now there are marathons on TV channels every day. Is there really that much demand to see SISTER SISTER repeats?
THE MINDY PROJECT should be really thankful. They’ve got a full season’s order despite their ratings dropping like a stone.
Why are the Cowboys America’s team?
Okay, I’ll admit it – I love “Merry Christmas Darling” by the Carpenters.
If turkey is so great how come we never order it any other day of the year?
If you’re in New York, the real fun of the parade is watching them blow up the balloons tonight. They do it near the Natural History Museum.
I miss Underdog.
Everyone says turkey makes you drowsy because of the L-tryptophans. It’s a myth. L-tryptophans only work on an empty stomach and even then only slightly. You’ll feel much drowsier watching THE MASTER. The real reason people feel sluggish after a big turkey dinner is because they ate too much and their digestive system is going nuts trying to process it all.
I notice my neighborhood Chinese restaurant is closed for Thanksgiving. Unlike Christmas, Jews don’t go out.
It’s going to be sunny for the Macy’s Parade. But cold. Those Broadway dancers will be freezing their lip syncing asses off.
Have you noticed that airfares this holiday season are way up from last year? Is it because oil prices are up (although they’re now coming down) or just because “they can?”
Stupidest Thanksgiving song ever: “Turkey Lurky” from PROMISES PROMISES.
I love Thanksgiving because it’s the start of the holiday season that now lasts until Superbowl Sunday.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
