My ex girlfriend called last night saying she was lost in OTR and didn't have her wallet or keys. I did not answer as I was passed out. I wonder if she is okay...

Right. Coz you're somehow noble if you abstain from material consumption today and tomorrow. Every other day of the year however, being a greedy consumption monster is a-okay. Saturday November 24th = iPads nom nom...

Thanksgiving tips:
- Keep annoying guests, or all guests for that matter, out of the kitchen! Keep hors d'oeuvres and the bar/beverages in the dining/living room.

- Don't use that final roasting minutes tip of painting on soy sauce on the bird to make it look brown and glazed, it only dries it out.

- If there's a limited amount of gravy, serve it yourself so that nobody hogs it.

- Before guests arrive and even if you're running behind schedule, force yourself to get refreshed and have a drink and relax. You don't want folks to see you flustered.

What other tips to Sloggers have today?

Yeah, I got a tip. Try not to gloat too much to R74 rejecting relatives. That's gonna be a challenge for me today.

Thank You Wonkette:
Happy Thanksgiving, America. May all your Hoverrounds come equipped with TruckNutz. May you return safely from your holiday travels without having actually punched any wingnut relatives in the nose. May your attempts to recite “Alice’s Restaurant” from memory be at least 30% successful. May you see everything twice — unless you get dragged out to that thing about sparkly vampires, or that other thing that’s a remake of that 1984 thing about Rooshians invading Colorado. (North Koreans? As if.)

Started turkey day with morning sex and then a joint shower. Now off to eat eggs and bacon and bake cornbread, biscuits and candied bacon. Best holiday ever!

Grocery shopping is okay before noon. Just noChristmas shopping.

@21: It's a holiday. Do you really need another assortment of news and politics articles to get outraged about and a cute video?

I'm sure you all know this already, but the 12 days of Christmas start on the 25th, they don't end on the 25th. There are always so many ads and commercials that get this wrong.

Hector "Macho" Camacho pronounced brain dead after being shot in the head outside of a bar in Puerto Rico. I always maintain a soft, nostalgic spot in my heart for those 70's & 80's era boxers, the last era when the sport still held solid footing in the mainstream American sports conscience (and I know it's likely for the best, as the sport can be unspeakably brutal and inhumane. Still.)

RIP.

What the fuckin' fuck is with folks that put up their fawkin' X-mas tree before Thanksgiving? There are three in my neighborhood.

Wouldn't you just be massively tired of it all by the time X-mas finally arrives? And what Care Bear said deserves repeating: the twelve days begin on X-mas. It used to be the custom to put up the decorations and the tree on X-mas eve.

Open thread?? I only comment in closed, monogamous threads!! Outrageous!

Wait... this doesn't count ok? Please don't tell that last post I was commenting in! Oh God, what have I done...

Wait. This doesn't make sense. Am I saying the thread is like a marriage/relationship? If so I should ONLY comment in open ones.

Wait. What about all those other threads? Damn it. I'm such a whore.

@30 The REAL problem with putting up your Christmas tree before Thanksgiving is that the needles will have fallen off by Christmas.

@35 The answer is a fake Christmas tree of course. Another artbasketsara family tradition! Those real ones are soooo lazy... I only hire artificial.

@33 Stop looking in my basket!!

Socialized medicine is the bomb! News from Sweden: A friend of a friend (both Swedes) was sick, swollen, and miserable. She went to the doctor on Monday, they suspected cancer. Did tests. Confirmed Hodgkins Lymphoma this morning and she started chemotherapy three hours later. Suck on that, relatives who believe that socialized medicine is a death sentence!
