Quite a nice meal, eh?
adlib 7 days ago
A tad too warm here for turkey, but we did have nice salads!

It’s never too hot for turkey! Try a turkey milkshake!
adlib 7 days ago
I don’t think so, Tim!

Turkey wine cooler?
adlib 7 days ago
BRB getting some of that! actually a coffee!

Much better!

So who went Black Friday shopping today?

Hey slm! Yep, same here, and chilling out.
adlib 7 days ago
It’s chilly in LA?

I’m really bothered by the Thanksgifing day shopping. With this trend, it will no longer be a holiday or a day with much meaning, just about consumung food and products.
adlib 7 days ago
It was pretty warm today, actually. How are things your way?
adlib 7 days ago
Totally agree. I usually wait til next weekend when things have calmed down.

We got a bit of Thanksgiving snow, freezing until Sunday when it goes back into the 50s

Gives you the best excuse to stay home, warm and cozy.
adlib 7 days ago
Exactly!!

So who cooked?

I know we’ll finally get a winter here but thanks to Climate Change, not yet!
adlib 7 days ago
My wife cooked, daughter helped, I carved, had friends over, a very nice evening.
adlib 7 days ago
Did you cook?
adlib 7 days ago
Sounds nice. Yes, I cooked for myself and my man and also cooked for my landlord and his sons.

Two kitchens, two meals, slept like a baby last night.
sillylittleme

Sounds great! You earned that sleep!
adlib 7 days ago
Without a doubt.

Kind of feel like corporations are trying to run over Thanksgiving because it’s not a profit maker for them…until they had Black Friday back over it.
adlib 7 days ago
Of course, money is all they care about. What a sad statement about society…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Yes, what angers me though is that Americans are just blindly embracing this encroachment of shopping and stampeding to stores into T-Day. It’s making retail workers lose this day as a holiday and breaking up family and friends from spending that day together. Pretty awful IMO.

State elections here in Victoria today. Liberal (GOP) incumbents will probably get thrown out by Labor ( dems) as a protest at the Federal Bunch of eejits

Evening Glenn, survive Thanksgiving?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I’m in a safe GOP seat but I’ll still vote Labor.
pinkpantheroz

PPO – So sounds like the reverse of our election.
adlib 7 days ago
PPO – Any restrictions against gerrymandering there?
adlib 7 days ago
Evening, Silly, Ad, and PPO. Yes, I did have a nice Thanksgiving. Sounds like yours was nice, also, SLM.

Ad – seems like we are backwards from the rest of the fully developed democracies…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Great to hear, glenn!
adlib 7 days ago
Yes, ad, but it is only one state, and the gerrymander is alive and kickiing! But the demographics are starting to change, so….. we live in hope.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO–your situation sounds like mine. I’m in a red state, but still vote Dem.
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn – I had a lot of fun cooking!!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
At least we do get a large voting turnout, due to it being compulsory!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – The gerrymandering is so bad here that Repubs won this year even though the demographics have been strongly changing against them. But off year elections cause this.
adlib 7 days ago
SLM–good on ya for cooking. Luckily, I rely on my son-in-law and daughter to do most of the cooking nowadays. My son-in-law made baked ziti, as well as turkey and all the trimmings. Lots of leftovers!
glenn

PPO – wish that we had compulsory voting…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
fix that, Ad by making it an honorable duty to vote.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Glenn – yum, nothing better than a man who knows his way around the kitchen…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
PPO – Hard to instill a sense of honor in the apathetic.
adlib 7 days ago
SLM, yes it’s really no impost, especially when the elections are held on Saturdays and it only takes a minute or two. Plenty of booths, few queues.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad – if it were compulsory, then apathy wouldn’t be tolerated,
sillylittleme

7 days ago
All-I am so pissed off with all those lazy ass Dems who didn’t vote, and I really don’t care what their reasons for not voting were. I’m going to sound like a tbagger here and yell, “I want MY country back!” Rude, disrespectful repubs are talking about NOT inviting the President for the State of the Union address. WTH is wrong with these people? They’re sore losers and even sorer winners!
glenn

Glenn – couldn’t agree more, want MY country back to sanity and sensibility
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm – I agree, compulsory voting would be the best way to solve that. But Repubs don’t want more people voting, they’ll stand in the way of that happening.
adlib 7 days ago
Ad – of course, because they’d never have another seat in any position
sillylittleme

7 days ago
ad, you’re probably right, but couldn’t the US at least vote on a weekend?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Glenn – who do they think will give the SOTU address?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – What? Some Repubs are saying they don’t want the President giving a SOTU address to Congress?
adlib 7 days ago
SLM, David Letterman’s Top Ten!

SLM–They want the President to give it in writing; they just don’t want him to be able to speak in Congress.
