Three Thanksgiving Traditions

Here at Chez SFL, we have three Thanksgiving Eve traditions.

The first is to pig out on the new Dungeness crab of the season. Unfortunately, Mr. SFL and I both worked late tonight and didn’t have a chance to get crab, although we already had our first crab on Saturday.

Tradition number two is to watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. The scene of Snoopy fighting the fold-up chair never fails to make me laugh hysterically.

And then in closing, tradition three, we find the best possible clip on the tubez of WKRP in Cincinnati and the Turkey Drop episode.

Happy Thanksgiving, Stinquers. I’m thankful to have all y’all from my dysfunctional virtual family to talk politics, soccer hotties, FLOTUS fashion, Sarah Palin stupidity, cat-blogging, dog-blogging, bunneh-blogging, food porn, car porn, wine porn, Teabagger Outrage de Jure, closet-case Republicans, my Stinque Department of Lady-Bits screeds, or whatever may strike our fancy.


Amd to you, and may the Tree v. Bruins game on Sat drive us both to strong drink.

@Dodgerblue: I just hope one side or the other jumps out to an early lead and maintains it. If it’s close I may start stroking out — as well as Mr. SFL who has calculated the odds of the following simultaneous events: U$C beating the Popes, Uklah beating the Tree, Florida State beating Florida, Georgia doing something, and the Ducks beating the Beavers – if all of these things happen then the Ducks still have a chance of going to the national championship.

As God is my witness…

Happy Thanksgiving, Lefty! And the rest of you all Stinqers, also too.

@Dodgerblue: I think you have better odds than Los Patos.

We’re going to enjoy a traditional Limey Thanksgiving: cock-a-leekie soup, then toad in the hole, followed by spotted dick with lashings of Bird’s custard.

I got back from the East Coast at 11 PM last night. Today, we start what I hope will be a new tradition: Thanksgiving dinner at our favorite local French restaurant. Losing Stinque even for a brief time this week made me realize more than ever how much I rely on you guys for what passes for my sanity. Very thankful for nojo’s continual selfless efforts on our behalf. Enjoy the holiday, or at least try not to kill your relatives.

@SFL: It’s not Thanksgiving until I hear, “As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.”

@Mistress Cynica: T minus 3 hours before I take a Xanax to prepare for a meal with the in-laws. We should start a betting pool on whether or not we have to leave early.

P.S. So sorry about the kitteh. She was lucky to have a human like you.

@Tommmcatt May Just Have Some MJ In His System As Well, So What?: I thought the same thing.

@Mistress Cynica: Not totally selfless. It’s also my business server.
