Thanksgiving Day 2007


Labor Day seems like it was just yesterday and yet here we are and it's already Thanksgiving Eve Day. It's a very busy day for a lot of Americans. Some people will be driving, some will be flying, some people will be cooking, and cleaning. Me? I'll be watching TV and spanking my bird.

Well... not all day. I still have to go shopping. Yes, I'm one of those assholes who waits until the Day before a holiday to do his grocery shopping. I hope I don't get into a brawl with some senile old lady over the last bag of flower this year.

But what I really want to write about today is how grateful and thankful I am this year. I've said it many times and I'll say it a million more before it's all said and done, this has been the best year of my life. Here's a brief explanation, but I think most of you know who, what, where, and why this has been such a great year for us.

I'm really looking forward to spending tomorrow with my wife and son while we watch the parade and eat cinnamon rolls and drink coffee. Then we cook, and then we go over to Allyson's Mom and Dad's house for food, drink, football, miracle, and expanding.

But while I'm doing all that we'll also be celebrating the official start of the Holiday season here on the log with the traditional Corky's Thanksgiving Day/Weekend Comment Parade. That's right folks, I'm also thankful for all of the wonderful comments I hope to receive. I want to know everything... What are you grateful for? What are you watching on TV? How many drinks have you had? Who's driving you crazy? What's your all time favorite drug? Is the Christmas tree up yet? What are your Thanksgiving traditions? Anything and everything goes!

PS All my friends from other countries and planets are encouraged to celebrate Thanksgiving with Corky and the Gang too. I wouldn't have it any other way. ;)

captain corky said...

Brilliant!

karma lennon said...

Have a great holiday! Mine will be interesting....let's see if I survive....

eric1313 said...

I just can't wait for that turkey and all the fixings. It's not even cooking, but I smell it already.

Have fun on Turkey day. Of course, I just might drop by before heading out to shoot some pool after dinner.

Peace out, Corky.

captain corky said...

Karma: Everything will be alright. You have a great holiday too and I'll be checking in with you.

Real Live Lesbian said...

Happy Thanksgiving Cap'n! I love all the *little* kermits underneath him! Great pic!

Jay said...

Thanksgiving came up in a hurry this year! I guess I better go kill a turkey today or we'll just be having nachos and beer for our Thanksgiving feast. Or maybe pizza. Pizza is good!

I wonder if the strip clubs are open on Thanksgiving?

Heather said...

Don't forget to get those petals out of the 'flower' ;-) or flour. It made me giggle and I couldn't resist.

Anyway, happy turkey day corkster. My mother in law has assured me that they have loaded up the house with plenty of adult beverages so that we are all able to survive the two days together. Woot!

furiousBall said...

You don't want to know where Kermit's inflation nozzle is located.

Canadian flake said...

We got our 1st snow overnight...so everything is white and sorta purdy...I will be back with more comments over the weekend.

Nancy said...

Happy FIRST Thanksgiving Max!

Cork & Allyson,
Eat, drink, and be safe!

captain corky said...

Eric: I can't wait either! Make sure to stop in often.

Real Live Lesbian: Happy Thanksgiving! And welcome to the family. ;)

Jay: I'm sure the strip joints are open on Thanksgiving. Maybe you could score some coke and then you guys could have coke with your Nachos and beer. That would make for a real down-home Thanksgiving.

Heather: Um... I was just testing you. Good catch. ;)

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Furiousball. LOL. Nope.

captain corky said...

Flake: Awesome! Plan on taking any pics?

Nancy: Happy Thanksgiving. Have a great Turkey Day.

fiwa said...

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! I'm making a personal pledge to comment at least 20 times. I can do it. I can. I have my nikes on.

lovins,
fiwa

Sassy Lucy said...

Shoot someone already mentioned you are buying "flower" and not flour, how do you bake with flower and which do you suggest?
Followed your insightful comments from RLL's log, and as you must be a trekkie I was intrigued.
Have a great holiday, and maybe if you ever wanna visit my little chunk of the blogosphere say hi.

Guilty Secret said...

Aw thank you so much for the personal invite to us non-Americans. You've made me feel very welcome here. Tomorrow is just a normal day at work for us here in UK, but I do like the idea of thanksgiving, so I might just try to incorporate it into my day somehow.

Ok, seeing as this parade is supposed to last all weekend, I'll come back later to answer some of your questions.

Metal Mark said...

Waiting until the day before to go shopping? That's crazy! I am not going to go fight a bunch of old women over the last can of cranberry sauce. Good luck though.

nikki said...

I'm grateful that my three year old can finally wipe his own butt.

nikki said...

Oh and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

RockDog said...

Jay...strip clubs are always open. How else are they ever going to be able to "pay off those college loans". I urge everyone to stop in their local strip club...remember, strippers need love too!

Good parade so far, Captain!

qofd said...

You are such a dork. It's "flour", not "flower". Or maybe you meant "flower" instead of "flour" because you're picking up fresh greenery instead of a baking staple in which case I'm the dork.

Metal Mark said...

Have a good holiday!

The Artist formerly Known as Purpleworms (!) said...

Hey, Cork, I'm thankful I'mnot the deer I just hit on the road yesterday - and living a lot more in the present at the moment. I'll see you in the grocery store later today -I also will be figting that old lady - no wait - I AM that little old lady and you aint gettin' my bag of flour, Buster! The Justice League will be all over your ass if you do something so uncivilized!!

Tod said...

A year has gone by already since the last Corkathon? Blimey!

Happy Thanksgiving to you guys!

captain corky said...

Fiwa: I look forward to reading all 20 comments. I just love me a team player. ;)

Sassy Lucy: Welcome! I'll be sure to visit. I love making new friends. ;)

Guilty: I'm glad you like coming around and I'm am thankful that we have become such intimate friends. Too bad if we walked past each other in the street we would have no idea who we each other was. LOL

Metal Mark: We made out a live and in once piece, thankfully.

Nikki: That's a lot to be thankful for. Have a great holiday!

captain corky said...

Rockdog: Exactly! We should all support the youth of today for a brighter future tomorrow.

QofD: I guess I failed to turn you on with my mental prowess... This time. ;)

Metal Mark: You too man. By the way, two comments gets you an extra helping of pumpkin pie.

TAFKAPW: Just out of curiosity, you're not having deer meat with your Thanksgiving meal are you. ;)

I'm glad you're ok!

Tod: LOL! More like two months.

Thanks pal.

Dana said...

Hey Corky! Looks like I've become a regular visitor - one of the many things I am thankful for, along with dark chocolate in 100 calorie bars, stretch denim and wet t-shirt contests. Oh, and I'm thankful that I am not a turkey!

Biddie said...

Happy Thanksgiving!
I think that I will watch the parade tomorrow. Unless it's on at 1:00, b/c I have other stuff to do. Otherwise, I'm there. I love Santa. I do, I admitt it.

MyUtopia said...

I hope baby has a wonderful first thanksgiving! We having over 12 people over tomorrow. It is really stressing me out!

RockDog said...

Did some one say wet t-shirt contest or is my hearing starting to go???

Ms. Tuesday said...

i will be joining you in the AM cinnamon roll/ coffee tradition.

happy turkey day

Bonnie Blue said...

Have a GREAT turkey day. I plan on taking some pics of the food not the process though because well...I'm lazy. I'm already pissed...I fucked up the pumpkin pie. I made the filling while I was on the phone and added an extra 1/4 tsp of clove and forgot the salt. I hope my guests LOVE clove. hehe. I'll drown it in fresh whipped cream...that oughtta do it. :)

I have to say...the flower made me laugh too. :)

I miss Kermit...he was a good balloon. I have to share one more thing...I grew up 2 blocks from where they blow the balloon up for the parade so every year I had to go and watch...OMG THE CROWDS. I have nightmares just thinking of it. It's so much nicer to watch on tv. ;)

captain corky said...

Dana: Welcome to the family! I'm definitely thankful for wet t-shirt contents too.

Biddie: I Hope everyone gets a chance to check out your Christmas village. I showed it to Allyson as soon as she came into the room.

Myutopia: Thanks. That's a lot of work for you! Make everyone else do everything while you sit on the couch and enjoy yourself.

Rockdog: I think I heard the same thing. ;)

Ms. Tuesday: Sounds good! You guys have a great day too.

captain corky said...

Bonnie Blue: I don't know what happened. Usually my spelling is right on pointe!

I grew up 20 minutes from the city and every year we vowed to make it in for the parade, but never did. One day though. ;)

Bonnie Blue said...

Oh Corky...DON'T go to the parade! It's a HUGE mass of people. It's awful...but I also hate the Macy's fireworks. I'm not one of huge crowds. So much better on TV. Or if you can go to someone's place and see everything from there. That's fun. Someone's roof for the fireworks and someone on Central Park West's window for the parade. That's the way to do it.

captain corky said...

Bonnie Blue: My friend owns a place in Brooklyn and we've watched the fireworks up there for New Years and the 4th of July. It was amazing both times, but DC is the best for fireworks on the 4th of July. Plus, I always spend a couple of hours at the Smoke In when I'm in DC on the 4th. ;)

Tod said...

One of these days I will be in New York for the parade. I don't care if it's not as good as that film. I know I will love it. :)

Bonnie Blue said...

I've never done the 4th in DC but I've done memorial day and that's a blast.

Tod...enjoy the parade if you get here but make sure you take a bottle of Valium or xanax first.

Leighann said...

Well, I'm back for the second day in a row, does that officially make me a stalker? *hoping!*

Anyswho.... our traditions are as follows.... watch the parade and cook as LITTLE as possible!!

::cheers::

etain_lavena said...

YAY al Capitan:)

Well I am grateful for a family that loves me.
I dont watch much TV...sorry:(
Today no drinks.
Who drives me crazy...my apparent soulmate that is nowhere to be found...whahahaha.
Xmas tree goes up 1 Dec.
No thanksgiving traditions...:(
Thanks for visiting my blog and the comforting words, appreciated al Capitan.
Keep safe.
HUGZZZZZ

Pink said...

Well over here in London I'm spending Thanksgiving eve watching the England v Croatia football (soccer) game and caring if England wins and makes it into the European cup.

I had goats cheese and vegetable salad for dinner.

I've become a European :(

(Gasp!)

Princess Pointful said...

All this talk from my US bloggie friends has inspired a very fierce craving for gravy... not a good thing.

kat said...

Wow that sounds like a LOT of fun. I will participate as long as I can. I've got driving to do tomorrow.

I hope I am online here when you see the Hitler balloon. Apparantly they added one to the parade route this year. Your commentary upon sighting it would make it that much better.

HAR said...

Thank you Corky.

I was wondering how I was going to get through Thanksgiving with the crazies. Now I know. A good old fashion comment parade.

nikki said...

I wanted to say something about flower, alas I was at work. Also, I get paid on Wednesdays. Guess what day I had to shop? It wasn't as bad as I thought. My brother was working at the store though and he said he had to stock the stove top stuffing things every 20 minutes.

nikki said...

my dad used to make his own stuffing. Who says dressing and who says stuffing? I think my dad said dressing.

nikki said...

someone else has my same name. cool for them. I'm the one with a picture of ghost rider though.

nikki said...

I'm just posting because I should be baking something and I don't know if I'll be online tomorrow to post.

Canadian flake said...

I am back again to see how the comment parade is coming along..lol. I posted some pretty pics on my blog of the white stuff we got...we are getting a lot more tonight and I am thinking there will be no school tomorrow...got some booze I can have? LOL.

Bonnie Blue said...

I'm back. I cooked ALLLLLLLL day!

Phew...I'm BEAT! More to go tomorrow. Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend so far!

fiwa said...

#2. I'm almost finished with my Thanksgiving cooking! Everything is assembled, all I have to do tomorrow is cook it all. Woohoo!

Professor J said...

Hey Corky,

I am taking a break right now. I have baked corn bread for the stuffing, set the table, swept and vaccumed, started a squash soup, and had three glasses of wine. I'm still thirsty, though. I plan to watch the parade and the national dog show. I am thankful for wine and for my sweet family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving!

jAMiE said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Corky...be safe..and happy and most of all have fun!!!

Casdok said...

Happy Thanks giving!
I only know about it from watching Friends!

Cazzie!!! said...

Awesome stuff, what a wonderful time

captain corky said...

Tod: That's a good goal. I still wouldn't mind going one time. But it would only be worth it if I could get a front row seat. Plus, I would bring something to nurse on. ;)

Bonnie Blue: I try to take a bottle of valium or xanax every where I go. I never leave home without the stuff!

Ok... That may not be completely true. ;)

Leighann: I love being stalked. Being stalked is one of things that makes life worth living. I've been stalked many times. I only cook one part of the meal, the mashed potatoes. Yum!

Etain: Great to hear from and I hope to see pics of that tree. You keep safe too. :)

Pink: People who eat goats cheese and vegetable salad on Thanksgiving Day here in American are subject to deportation. Good thing that you're in England eating that stuff. ;)

captain corky said...

Princess: Lots of salt consumed on Thanksgiving Princess. And Sugar and spice and everything nice. Um... yeah. ;)

Kat: Glad you're going to be here for some of the fun! Curious.

Har: I like to be here for my friends when they need me most. ;)

Nikki: I was surprised about the shopping too. It really wasn't that bad, but I did go early and they are open today until 5. That might have something to do with it.

I'm pretty sure we say stuffing, but I don't eat it anyway. I'm not a big stuffing guy.

Also, there might be one or two other Captain Corky's out there, but they all seem to own boats. ;) Hope to see you later. Have a great Turkey day.

Flake: I need to check out lots of blogs today. Good thing it's only 5:30 AM right now. LOL

captain corky said...

Bonnie: It bet it smells really good over at your place right now. I'm loving it so far.

Fiwa: You up yet? LOL

Professor J: I'm thankful for wine too, and beer and vodka, and... ;) Have a great Thanksgiving and have a glass for me.

Jamie: Thank you very much. So far it's perfect. I've only been up for a couple of minuets though. ;)

Casdok: It's a blast. Hopefully some day you can come to the states and celebrate with us. ;)

captain corky said...

Cazzie: This holiday would be right up your ally!

HAR said...

I'm hungry already.

captain corky said...

Har: Me too. ;)

CRUSTYBEEF said...

Your posts always make me laugh and smile and you inspire me...

you go daddy!! Happy first Gobbles to Max...is he gonna get to pull the wishbone?

Cinnamon rolls and coffee..see? inspiration..I'm off to do my morning "read" and than to the store for my last minute things (as well) along with an added item-cinnamon pillsbury rolls..to begin the start of our Hello kitty super girl cape watching Macy's..

Look for the legally Blond cast..they're costumes are locked up on the other side of the picket line, therefore improv is needed.
Always,
Crusty
Thanks to you!! :)

CRUSTYBEEF said...

Okay:
I love Beer with Football, the smells of the turkey, the kids happily playing on the floor..The anticipation of the corn casserole, or awesome stuffing, the liver,..weed would be my all time favorite drug..probably because that's all I had ever tried..except that one time..when I was 20-YIKES!! Bad mistake..
but I love thanksgiving..the excitment in the air..something about it..

HAppy gobbles to your better half, your adorable growing genetic half and to you. :)
Always,
Crusty

captain corky said...

Crusty: It sounds like Thanksgiving is going to be amazing over at your place. Thanks for the kind words and the warm wishes. :)

dawn said...

happy thanksgiving.

tonight, after i finish cooking & cleaning, i am watching my most favorite holiday movie, love actually. i bet you would totally get full service if you pick it up at target. i just got it for $6.50.

captain corky said...

Dawn: My wife and I love that movie. Me and the Birdman do a piece on it every year on our blogs. I called one of my posts a piece... do I take myself to seriously? LOL

abbagirl74 said...

Happy Thanksgiving!

captain corky said...

Abbagril74: Thank you. Same to you and your family. :)

captain corky said...

The day is starting off just right. It's 43 degrees outside and won't get much warmer today.
Perfect.

I've fed Max once already and then he went back to sleep. I don't know about you guys but I'm really hungry and want my coffee and rolls, but I'm going to let Allyson sleep for another half hour. I'm just that kind of guy.

I'm very happy with the way things have gone around here on the log yesterday and today considering how many people are off doing their Thanksgiving thing. Plus, I've made a couple of new friends and strengthened some other friendships, which is very cool and what this is really all about.

Dana said...

It's good to hear your Thanksgiving is starting off just right! We woke up to snow and 32 degrees in Chicago!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

captain corky said...

Dana: Awesome! How much did it snow?

HAR said...

Children are washed and mom is happy. Which is a good thing. "If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."
So I am thankful the girls were in cooperation "mode." this morning.

i am so thankful that I don't have to cook.

captain corky said...

Har: "If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."

Funny, that same rule applies here! I need to get into the shower while everyone still sleeps.

gawilli said...

The pies are in the oven signaling the start of the Turkey Day cook-off! We are so looking forward to this four day holiday - especially the part where we don't have to go to work. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Corky! I will enjoy my family and I know you will do the same!

fiwa said...

#3 Happy Thanksgiving! We are having cinnamon rolls too, once my spouse gets up. And it's below freezing here - there's ice in the bird bath.

erika said...

to answer your questions sir: i am grateful for your blog :)

erika said...

the tv is not on, though i'm sure later will be football

erika said...

no drinks yet (it's 10 am), though i have been up for two hours, so i should start in about 30 minutes or so

erika said...

no one's awake and i'm not spending the holiday with the fam so no one is driving me crazy, yet that is ;)

erika said...

makers mark is my fave drug, but if you're speaking of the illegal kind i have no idea what you are talking about whatsoever

erika said...

no christmas tree yet, though my sis is taking off monday and tuesday to decorate so that means the entire house will be covered with lights

erika said...

we're no longer upholding tradition.

Dana said...

We've only got about an inch on the ground so far, but rumor has it there is more on the way!

Will someone send me their Thanksgiving smells? We are eating out today ...

HAR said...

Next phase of the operation, clean up around here before we leave.

I hate this part. BUT it is worse coming home to a messy house.

HAR said...

I'm so glad that it is beautiful weather here in NY. Friends are at their 20th year of going to the Macy's Day Parade in NYC.
It is always so nice for the family when the weather is nice.
Especially the kids on the side of the road who can hit by one of those floats if the wind is intense.

captain corky said...

Gawilli: This is the first year I'm off on the day after Thanksgiving in 7 years! I'm pretty pumped about that. Happy Thanksgiving!

Fiwa: Sweet. Allyson and Max are up and the rolls are cooking and the coffee is brewing. The parade in on and i've decided to go with CBS. Doogie Howser is one of the side line reporters.

Erika: You... Football?!? Looks like there's a God after all. Can I come over and watch your sister set up the lights? I like watching your sister in action.

Allyson is having Thanksgiving Morn coffee out of the mug you made her and I'm having mine out of the snowman mug I bought at Target for 3 bucks.

Dana: I wish it were snowing here! I won't have the full smell until 3 or 4, but coffee is a great start.

Har: I've been doing a lot of cleaning here lately. Especially bottle and bib washing.

captain corky said...

Har: I'm watching and they say it's close to 60. Crazy. I'm glad it's much colder here. Much more appropriate for today.

Palm Springs Savant said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you Corky, the missus and Corky Jr.!
-Rick

captain corky said...

I don't know how much longer I'll be able to take the broadcasters though. I may have to put my TV on Mute for the next hour and half.

captain corky said...

Palm Srings Savant: Thanks from all of us, and you have a happy Thanksgiving too.

BottleBlonde said...

Happy Thanksgiving, lovey!

I'm thankful for my stubble free armpits.

Bonnie Blue said...

Good morning...

Snow...pfft...it's a sunny 65 degrees here in NYC. I don't get it. Oh well...

Turkey's in the oven and ready to go. I forgot 1 damned thing at the supermarket so I have to go back which I didn't want to do. Think the place'll burn down if I leave the turkey unattended while I go? I hope not.

Hope everyone who's celebrating Thanksgiving is having a good one.

Corky, Max gonna have his first turkey? or is solid food a bit advanced?

nikki said...

43 degrees? it's only 25 here! I am kinda glad I'm inside baking. I should have done this last night. Oh well, I can smell pumpkin cheesecake RIGHT NOW!

her indoors said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, hope Max enjoys his first thanksgiving.
and thank you for inviting us to join in your celebrations.
I am thankful for my pc without it i would never have met so many great blogging buddies!
just opened a bottle of bud, which will lead to another and another, nowt wrong with that then!
eat drink and be meryy x

captain corky said...

Bottleblonde: Happy Thanksgiving to you too. I bet they smell like roses too. ;)

Bonnieblue: He's eating rice and fruit right now. Not ready for Turkey just yet, but before I know it he;ll be going to town on the stuff, just like his old man. It's too warm in NY.

Nikki: Sweet! I bet it smells amazing at your place.

Her Indoors: I'll be having my Budweiser very soon. ;)

dilling said...

Gobble gobble...I am thankful to be an American living in Canada which means I get to celebrate Thanksgiving TWO TIMES... woot woot. Double the stuffing, double the fun.
And plus? I am thankful for lots of stuff...Happy Thanksgiving, Corky.

Bonnie Blue said...

YAY...I didn't burn the house down!

But...driving back from the supermarket I passed a gas station and I was at a red light and there was a fire at the gas station. I thought I was gonna explode. I didn't though. Gas station is NOT the place for a fire.

Is it turkey time yet?

Corky, how are you dealing with your tv dilemma?

captain corky said...

Dilling: Two Thanksgivings are definitely better than one, but this one is turning out to be a pretty good one. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Bonnie blue: It's always a good thing when you don't burn down the house.

We're not eating for at least another two hours and I'm HUNGRY!

The Packers games is pretty good as of right now and Miracle hasn't started yet so I don't know what I'm going to do... ;)

Dan said...

I'm grateful for being able to leave comments about things I'm grateful for. Ask Spock. He'll understand.

Hi Corky! Happy Thanksgiving!

fiwa said...

#4 At the last minute I changed my mind and made Cheryl's pineapple bake instead. It's like pineapple bread pudding - YUM. Oh, and coffee... I forgot how gooooood coffee tastes. I'm going to be in pain later tonight. :)

HAR said...

I am actually enjoying the day so far. Turkey yet?

TheBirdman33 said...

you are a whore

HAR said...

I had to stop and get coffee at Dunkin Donuts as per a request.
Hazelnut coffee. I don't drink coffee but it smells yummy.

Big Pissy said...

Cork!

Hope your Thanksgiving has been all you hoped for! :)

We here at the casa....that being 8 humans and 6 canines...are all well fed and resting now.

*sigh*

mjd said...

Happy Thanksgiving Corky, Being the boring non-drinker, I have had zero alcoholic drinks. The hubby and I are having a relatively quiet day at home. We did have three lovely offers of festivities elsewhere, but our traveling is currently curtailed.

I hope that your day has been fabulously filled with food, football, and family.

leslie said...

Happy Thanksgiving!
Wearing my elastic waist "buffet pants", and getting ready for the pies...

Canadian flake said...

HAPPY TURKEY DAY... I see the comments have topped 100...I popped over to see what I have missed. I watched "Miracle.." today on NBC in your honour...we trekkies have to stick together..lol.

Bonnie Blue said...

I never want to see food again...

TheBirdman33 said...

you put up these shameful requests for comments every few months...how does it work EVERY TIME?!?!

HAR said...

A really great day. I hope you, your wife and Corky Jr. had the same. Bring on Saint Nick.

Cheryl said...

I knew there was a reason for me to be wide awake in the middle of the night...to comment during your comment-a-thon.

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. What's Jr. thankful for this year?

DJ Kirkby said...

Happy Thanksgiving weekend CC.

Tod said...

It's Friday, the boss has the day off and I'm eating a Mars Bar and reading blogs instead of working.

It feels pretty festive here today too :)

I hope you and your family had a great Thanksgiving Corky! :)

captain corky said...

Dan: Glad to see and hear from you Dan! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

Fiwa: There's nothing more perfect than a cup of coffee with a taste treat. ;)

Har: I ate like a horse yesterday. It was glorious.

Birdman33: You have a black soul my friend. The good news is that there's still time left for salvation. Through Corky and Corky's log you will learn to love yourself and your fellow bloggers.

Har: I love Dunkin Donuts coffee and live on the stuff when I'm in NJ.

captain corky said...

Big Pissy: It was really good and I ate enough for four. ;) It sounds like you guys did plenty of eating and celebrating. Enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend. ;)

MJD: Lots of football, food and family. It was a lot of fun. :) Glad you guys got to have a nice peaceful day.

Leslie: LOL Sounds like a good plan. I need to get me a couple pairs. ;)

Flake: I hope you enjoyed it! Do you think those bastards at NBC will give me some kind of kick back or something for getting people to watch Miracle? I doubt it... bastards!

Bonnie Blue: I felt that way last not, but oddly enough I want to do it all again today. LOL

mjd said...

Good Morning Corky,

mjd said...

You are not shopping this morning?

Dana said...

Hey Corky, thanks for the Roll Call spot! I've decided the only bad thing about eating at a Thanksgiving buffet is the fact that there aren't any leftovers! I could really use a turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce sammich for breakfast!

Birdman: These are no longer "shameful requests." This is a holiday tradition in the making. Just like a family puts up a Christmas tree or mistletoe, Corky has a comment-a-thon. Feel free to leave as many comments as you like. Join in on the comradery and friendship. We welcome you with open arms. ;)

Har: It was a great day, can't wait for Saint Nick!

Burfica: Glad to see you! Four dinners?!? Now we're talking! I'm hungry again, let's eat!!!

Cheryl: Anytime is a great time to comment. Jr is grateful for having a dad that likes toys even more than he does. LOL How was your Thanksgiving?

DJ Kirkby: Thank you my friend. You do the same. ;)

Tod: That's a great way to spend the day working if you ask me.

We did Tod, thanks.

MJD: Good morning. No shopping for us on the day after Thanksgiving. I usually do mine the first week of December after I get my Christmas bonus at work. :)

Dana: I'm craving Turkey too, and I didn't bring and like a fool I didn't bring any left overs home. Rats.

No shopping for us either, my husband and I actually enjoy shopping on Christmas Eve morning.

mjd said...

Did you put up your Christmas tree and other decorations?

captain corky said...

MJD: Normally we do on Thanksgiving, but not this year. I think we're going to put up our tree on Christmas Eve this year.

mjd said...

When I was very young, my parents used to put up the tree on Christmas Eve. I really liked that custom. I can remember my father buying a tree on a Christmas Eve; we took the tree home on a wagon as we did not have a car.

#5 I am never cooking another bird that big again. What a pain-in-the-ass. But it sure was good. I watched Miracle with you.

Enemy of the Republic said...

I am very grateful that my son is growing up into a fine young man. I am proud of him.

I am also grateful that the Chicago Bears got into the Superbowl last year and this year got rid of that miserable quarterback.

Enjoy your weekend.

Jay said...

Well I survived Thanksgiving! How bout you?

Jay said...

But I'm kind of late to the commenting party.

Jay said...

So I'll make up for it by commenting several times today.

Jay said...

And tomorrow too!

Jay said...

In between watching football, drinking, eating and shopping.

Jay said...

Of course, I'll be on the road Sunday. But, Sunday night I'll be back to participating in the comment party.

Jay said...

But now I gotta go to the beer store. We're getting dangerously low on beer. Can't have that!!!!

Jay said...

I think I've done my fair share of commenting now. I hate not carrying my share of the load!

Close to 200 comments and this only Friday afternoon.

Lady K said...

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm grateful for cool blogs like yours!

WORK is driving me crazy.

I haven't had any drinks yet today but you can bet your ASS I'm having several when I finally get the hell out of here today.

I think my all time favorite drug is weed. Percoset runs a close 2nd, though...

captain corky said...

MJD: That's pretty wild that you guys didn't have a car. I look forward to reading about more of your family's Christmas traditions and history.

Fiwa: I'm so mad at myself for not taking some Turkey home with me from last night. Biggest mistake I've made this year. ;)

Enemy: With all the insanity that goes on in this world it's nice to hear that your son is doing well. I pray we do a good job with our son.

Jay: Glad to see you today! Can't have anyone running low on beer. Especially with all the football yet to be played.

Her: I was stuffed last night but now I'm hungry for more Turkey, and mashed potatoes, and mac-n-cheese and green beans and of course, beer. ;)

Max had a blast!

captain corky said...

Burfica: We had turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin Pie, pecan pumpkin pie, mac-n-cheese, stuffing, green beans with pinto beans, rolls, and beer. Lots of beer. ;)

Enjoy all the great food tonight and tomorrow!

Jerrster: Thanks man. Your blog kicks ass too. Lots more to come. ;)

MJD: We're definitely moving along. I like it!

Lady K: It sucks that you had to work today. This is the first time I've been off in 7 flippin years. It's nice. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Bonnie Blue said...

Wow...people have been busy here.

Glad everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. I had a great time but the caesar salad I made was gross. Never using that recipe for dressing again. (it was supposed to be the original recipe...whatever) My friend gave me a recipe for cornbread that had bacon, cheese and creamed corn in it...YUM. Turkey was great, pies were great, sweet potatoes great...oh and stringbeans...

I also put a bottle of white wine in the freezer to chill...forgot about it...remembered at 4am...it froze and the cork popped out...oops.

Today is a day of rest. Screw the shopping...I'd become homicidal if I went out today.

While you all have fun decorating for Christmas, I'll be cleaning the wax out of the menorah from last year. Fun times...lol.
