Counting Shades of Light


So, we here at hope that all our readership (yes, all 12 of you) had a happy and cozy Thanksgiving Day. We had a very enjoyable time cooking, dining, and hanging out with friends. Despite some early concerns, we managed to produce a tasty meal – and weren’t reduced to serving toast, popcorn, and jelly beans ala Charlie Brown.

Also, as tradition dictates, we watched a little of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The parade, as I’m sure you’re well aware, is famous for the spectacle of gigantic high school marching bands from Florida, swarms of questionably-dressed teen cheerleaders, roving bands of Broadway musical performers, and the ever-popular and ever-lame commentary from over-paid morning show hosts. (Al: Gosh, Matt, that Turkey can really trot! Matt: You’re cornier than Kansas in August, Al! Katie: Someone get me a drink.) Still, if you’re a fan of the parade, you’ll want to check out this link for a surreal glimpse at what goes on the night *before* the parade.

    Happy TGiving Day to the staff!

    In Seattle we had a tofurkey, garlic mashed potatos, green beans, yams with marshmellows, corn bread muffins, turkey, brussel sprouts, cheese noodles, bourbon cranberry sauce, and more.

    Anyone need any leftovers? There is plenty.

    everything sounds yummy, brandawg…except for the brussel sprouts, of course. brussel sprouts are the devil’s work.

    Happy belated Thanksgiving to you guys!

    I was curious about tofurkeys because I’ve never actually seen one (this being meat-lovers country and all), so I googled a pic:

    I hope my appetite comes back sometime this year.

    Thanks, Sedalina! Glad to read that your T-Day went swimmingly as well. And I agree about the tofurkey. An alarming sight indeed.
