Let's dish.

What do you usually do for thanksgiving? Have dinner with your own family, with the spouse's family? Or are you like me and go fifteen different places to eat before the day's over? Or, perhaps, your family goes OUT to eat on Thanksgiving?

Ahh, the holidays are fast approaching, and I can't wait.

And while we're at it, what's your favorite Thanksgiving dish? Maybe we could even post unique recipes, LoL

I'm like you Kenny... :)

I eat at my Mom's house, then Gran, then Nana, and later that night I go to a friends house late at night and we munch on leftovers and kick off the Holiday season eating and watching Rudolph.

My fave dishes are Broccoli Casserole & Earthquake Cake

german chocolate cake mix, flake coconut, cream cheese, pecans, walnuts, cherries all swirled into a cake.

But the trick to the cake is half way through baking you have to shake the cake to make it fall. after it falls it gets gooey and chewy around the edges.

Is anyone else a dork like me, watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade every single year? Every one of those cheesy musical acts -- I eat it up!

of course! I always spend the night at Mom's and she wakes me up right before it comes on. the smells of dinner and watching the parade makes me all nostalgic.

Damn, that cake sounds scrumptious, LoL.

And isn't the parade ALL about nostalgia? Seriously. I'm such a sap when it comes to holidays. Hell, I could cry during Halloween if I just thought hard enough about it and memories I have of previous Halloweens, LoL.

I think this year I'm going to try to make it myself. I've never done it before so it should be interesting. We usually go to my moms but I really can't stand her husband so that's out. I loooooooove stuffing. Can't get enough. I keep seeing commercials and it's making hungry for it already. Well that and I'm about 2 1/2 moths pregnant. Wish me luck with my dinner!!! :D

I make it a point to catch all the Charlie Brown Specials during the fall! I love ABC for running them every year, I used to even catch them when they were on CBS.

My favorite holiday dish is Chocolate Delight. The best ever.

I like to watch Charlie Brown too. This year I finally bought the box set of Charlie Brown. It contains the Thanksgiving, Halloween and Two Christmas eppys. The Thanksgiving one and the Halloween one have a extra bonus eppy. I still need to get the Valentines, Easter and New Years ones. :)

I feel so bad for Everyone in New Olreans around me. What do they have to be thankful for??

They have everything to be thankful for, more than anyone in the world right now. They lost so many material things and some had the misfortune to lose things of far more importance, but those who have their lives and their health? How can they not be thankful?'

Ah, this society and their material things. With the pain that comes with human tragedy, the important things are almost always truly realized.

    • 1-25   I saw Lauren's episode.   I liked it, but it really screamed missed opportunity to me. Always happy to see Jill, but does anyone care that Jill and her are still sisters? Fen coming out and it all happened off screen? And so much focus on Paul...but where was he? And no Brad? And the worst fear realized for some here...they all just sitting around talking. Please register in order to view this content   I did love the flashbacks. OOOOH MARY HOW I'VE MISSED YOU!!! That whole scene...lol. No one really does shade like how Paul's mother did it. I don't have enough scenes of Joanna who it was nice seeing her. It was great to see the Traci/Lauren rivalry touched on. And we know I LOVED seeing any of the Sheila/Lauren lab catfight...still hoping she shows up now that she's attached to Bill Spencer. Could you imagine Lauren's reaction? And I don't know about everyone else, but during the midway point commercial breaks, they did a montage of Lauren's appearances in the various openings. I didn't know Lauren was around for the...paint stroke(?) Y&R opening. More proof of her legacy.    Liked it, but again missed opportunity.    Nice to know I am not the only one who likes Sharon. 
    • I feel like the history of the show was pretty clear after a recent review of the 1984 SOD news on Tumblr. There was a long planning period, NBC built a new soundstage, they spent millions developing sets, including floors that looked like tiles but could be silent on camera.  They cast actors from other popular soaps, and they set up an expensive PR campaign for the debut. However, they miscalculated and set the first week of episodes during the summer Olympics in Los Angeles.  Perhaps they looked at the 1980 games that were boycotted by the US, but created a boom time for summer soap ratings, and they thought audiences would be looking for alternative programming because the Russians were boycotting the games; who knows.  However, the first ratings were a complete flop.  New World was new to network daytime programming, NBC had spent a fortune, and now everyone was in a panic.  They fired multiple cast members within the first few weeks.  They moved up the scheduled earthquake story in order to garner interest once the games were over.  And, there were weekly leaks to the press about how the network was pissed over the poor ratings. So, whatever bible was planned was clearly out the window, and whatever creative freedom was given to the Dobson's was quickly subverted once New World and NBC felt that they couldn't be trusted to bring in new viewers. 
    • Once again those damn heaven/purgatory mess from beyond Salem 2. Carlivati repeating the same boring sh!t again!
    • They did once and rumors are Will would return to take Sonny with him to New Zealand.
