A Very G:TB Thanksgiving

We don't have many traditions here (though I know how eagerly you're all anticipating the Twelve Days of Gheorghemas), but our sort of annual (this is the third time we've done it) Thanksgiving tribute to humanity is one of them.

Do enjoy, and may you and yours continue to have a cornucopia of reasons to be thankful.

Headn over to defend my title in the jogging stroller division at local turkey trot. Kind of a big deal.

rob said...

we expect so much of lebron that he's kinda lost the capacity to amaze us, but he's shooting 60% from the floor this season. 60%. that's absurd.

Took the bird out of the fridge, plied bacon twixt the skin and breast, and put the thermometer in place. Once we're up to room temp it's time to fire up the oven and apply the rub.

Greetings from Whale's Vagina.

Today I'm thankful for lots of stuff:
-the fact that I don't live in SoCal
-Shark attacks at Tortuga's
-turkey stuffing made with sausage
-my wife and family
-Dr. Johnny Fever

Also on this list is G:TB. Thanks to all of you for making life that much more enjoyable.

May your turkey be moist, the scotch be 18 years old, your sweatpants be loose, and the leftovers be plentiful.

TR said...

Not intentionally trying to be a tough guy, but I just started hitting the wine at 69 minutes past noon. Clicks.

Marls said...

Toughness just comes naturally TR. Toughness and body hair.

Danimal said...

1 bloody and 1 bourbon milk down. The buzz is stronger than I'd like with this many hours left in the day not to mention the turkey carving thing.

Danimal said...

Thankful for my wife who felt compelled to put Xmas lights up yesterday and a mom-in-law who gives us some semblance of sanity (SOS) including today's 3 hours of entertaining the 2 oldest at her place.

zman said...

My in-laws arrived 1.5 hours early.

Ron's not making many twitter friends with his declaration of disdain for pumpkin pie.

zinlaws

T.J. said...

i also hate pumpkin pie

T.J. said...

but then again, i eat like a child...so, rob, what is ur excuse?

zman said...

When TJ Lang is hurt does the teej feel pain?

rob said...

it tastes like shit. that's my excuse. i love food of all kinds. i dig most types of squash. just don't dig on the pumpkin. pumpkin beer, too, is an abomination.

Danimal said...

Totally agree. In fact, I have NEVER bitten into a piece of pumpkin pie nor will I. I've eaten all sorts of crazy shit but that is off limits.

zman said...

zinlaws brought bagels. In honor of all the Jewish pilgrims?

Danimal said...

Pumpkin spice?

T.J. said...

who is tj lang?

T.J. said...

i feel pain when k.d. lang feels pain

zman said...

Who is tony lucca?

T.J. said...

rob, will you be live blogging our trip to the howard/w&m game on saturday?

Marls said...

Cousins Sol and Irving Bradford were written out by that anti-Semite William.

Shlara said...

Gheroghies--happy turkey day.

I'm in a bit of a panic today--attempted to take my timed, take-home ethics exam on the old MacBookPro. Two mins in, the computer froze and I was forced to restart...therefore shutting myself out of the test completely. Going to stress eat with some turkey & stuffing.

T.J. said...

Shlara, we have booze and food. Come on over.

Mark said...

When I went to Tallahassee this summer I introduced my brother in law to Fat Tire. I've been informed that its his new favorite beer. I'm out here doing the Lord's work.

zman said...

Shlara - welcome to the modern education experience! My first day of law school threw me for a loop when everyone started taking note ... on laptops. I thought someone threw a box of tic tacs on the floor.

TR said...

My grammy's pumpkin pie was the shit. If only you all were lucky enough to taste her pie.

Also love Fat Tire. Won a Fat Tire shirt in an Aspen apr├Ęs ski open mike event and have been a fan ever since.

Danimal said...

I tasted that pie TR.
Glad I took the cowboys in a 2 game parlay.

TR said...

We'll played Danimal. Thought I'd leave that one out there to see who couldn't resist

Danimal said...

I just beat everyone else to it....they can and should respond as if I had not. But I do miss her.

zman said...

I prefer the taste of your granny's brownie. I am so bloated.

zman said...

Who is this little girl and why is she ripping off Terror Fabulous?

zman said...

Or was that Buju Banton?

TR said...

If we're gonna rank jailbait pop tards, there's 18 y/o Jessica Simpson and everybody else far below. Like Doc Gooden, she brought her best heat for a short period in her late teens.

Mark said...

We had 15 desserts on the table at my Mom's house. Danimal saw the picture in twitter. I'm so fat right now.

zman said...

I can't name a single Jessica Simpson song bu like TR I greatly appreciate her early work.

TR said...

White wine > red wine > Irish coffee > scotch.

When you're bloated, scotch gets it done. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking some up.

Mark said...

Sipping on Crown XR. Delicious.

zman said...

Malachai sold out for a Sears commercial?!

Mark said...

Hot Egg Bowl action on ESPN. Get some!

Marls said...

I just confirmed it with a second piece of pumpkin pie. Rob is an idiot.

rob said...

wright thompson is just killing mississippi state's uniforms on twitter. justifiably, as they're as disgusting as pumpkin pie. a sampling:

Imagine if Alabama's uniforms were designed by the lineup of a Reno whorehouse. Those are State's uniforms.

State bought these uniforms in Panama City.

rob said...

mike tomlin just pulled off a subtler jason kidd.

Mark said...

Mississippi State's uniforms just missed a game winning FG.

zman said...

Shockey Brown sounds like the result of an unfortunate romantic interlude not a cornerback.

Mark said...

Mississippi State beats their archival. Gets bowl eligible. And gets to .500. They do it at home. In OT. Greatest night ever?

zman said...

Leveon Bell's injury is awful. Even with a helmet he would be unconscious.

rob said...

just realized my tribe hoops plans interfere with my iron bowl watching plans. hope my portable internet thingy works.

rob said...

utep's win over tennessee denies us a chance for a usc/utep matchup at the battle 4 atlantis. that's a shame.
