  1. Here’s a question. Why is it called “a pond”? A pond is something small. Maybe with a few coy in it. Not a big frikken huge body of water :)

  2. Happy Thanksgiving all. Hopefully everyone is able to find something this year that they can be thankful for.

    Try not to eat too much today :)

  3. Time for bad Thanksgiving jokes:

    What did the mother turkey say to her naughty son?
    If your dad could see you now, he’d turn over in his gravy!

  4. The football team had just finished their daily practice session when a large turkey came strutting onto the field. While the players gazed in amazement, the turkey walked up to the head coach and demanded a tryout. Everyone stared in silence as the turkey caught pass after pass and ran right through the defensive line. When the turkey returned to the sidelines, the coach shouted, “You’re terrific!!! Sign up for the season, and I’ll see to it that you get a huge bonus.” “Forget the bonus,” the turkey said, “All I want to know is, does the season go past Thanksgiving Day?”

  5. I’m reminded of that joke.. what would Elvis Presley say if he was alive today?

    Why is it so dark in here?

    I’ll just do a preemptive GROAN!

  6. So think I will be eating light tonight compared to US DP contingent, just a couple of soft boiled eggs and toast. There will be no soldiers.

  7. Just wanted to proclaim my best wishes to the Deadpan on this U.S. holiday!

    Special guest appearances by the Smarty Hotties & Co. and Nomad!
    Even TEB was being coy. ;)

    Take care everyone.

  8. Wow, I never anticipated so much activity on T-Day! Rock on. I hope everyone is enjoying the day.

    I believe TEB also invited me up for an interview ;). ahem. Thanks about the music. What instruments does Mr. Bunny play? If I ever find my way to Alberta, I’ll be sure to bring a guitar. And a space heater.

  9. He plays the guitar, also. You wouldn’t need to bring one though, Jack. We’ve got more than one (I think six was the last count if you include the electric bass and 2 acoustics).

    Space heater?

    We also have a guest room with a (semi) private washroom to save on pesky hotel costs. :)

  10. Just got back from the doctors. I was put on new meds about three months ago. I think this is the first time I’ve ever had a (close to) normal report. We were both very happy.

  11. I brought the laptop and iPod with me and listened to the Deadpan sex-erview during my three hour tour to Grandma’s house this morning.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone. :)

  12. w00t for the good report, TEB :) And thanks for the invite. That sounds like the guitar collection in Spinal Tap. . . all he needs are amps that go to 11. Your hubby is welcome to contribute his own recordings to Deadpan.

    Thanks, Cj! Best T-Day wishes to you and the family.

    OK, I’m off to Charlie the Beer Guy’s Turkeypalooza.

  13. And yes, Canada can be cold but, believe it our not, we don’t live in igloos, and we have central heating systems in our homes, so you don’t need to bring your own heater :)

  14. Good luck with the yellow belt test TEB.

    Dub, I’m reminded of a certain scene in Pulp Fiction..way too much information.

    Morning Pan, cold hands again, this is becoming a trend.

  15. I just attended my very first Black Friday sale. I have satisfied my morbid curiosity and will never do it again. A woman was bleeding (not my fault.)

    They were sold out of my coveted item by the time I shimmied my way through the mass of crazy people to get to the back of the store.

    I was so pissed off that I bought the last Baby Alive just so nobody else could. That made me feel better and my daughter will love it.

  16. Someone told be it was called Black Friday because this is the day when the store’s bottom line goes into the black. After that story CJ, I’m more inclined to think it’s actually short for “black and blue Friday” which is what you’ll be if you try to shop on it ;)

  17. Busy day for today. Besides it being month end at work, I have my normal Friday stuff:

    Clean the upstairs bathroom
    Go shopping
    Bake cookies (the cookie of the week will be Lemon Almond)

    Plus, my MA is having their year end party tomorrow, after testing. It’s pot luck. I’ll be making fudge today to bring.

  18. Van, I have the feeling Master Park has said or done something (maybe asked him to come on different days?). While he used to attend every class I did (Monday, Thursday and Saturdays), he has not been in any of these classes since I’ve been back from World Fantasy. I know he’s been attending other days as some of the other students have mentioned him. I know it seems vain to think his schedule has changed because of me, but it still seems a little strange from always being with me to never being with me without some sort of intervention.

  19. Well I’m off to see Quarantine. Not so keen on horror but the good reviews have tempted me….yeah yeah I know it’s been out in the US for ages but some moves take a while to cross the pond.

  20. Happy post Turkey day! I’m posting from my folk’s computer in central Kansas. Damn it’s cold here. LOL Ditto is as super cool as I expected. We had a really nice chat. Hopefully there will be more in the future. :) Also, thanks for the latte ditto.

  21. I’m sorry to hear that, Van. I don’t do scary movies as a rule. I go once a year with my daughter, but that’s it. Then she usually laughs at me because I jump at everything.

  22. Well, I’m glad to see that all have apparently survived Thanksgiving. We had a good one with my family. The wife and I did go out this morning for the running of the bulls. There was nothing out there this year that I felt was really worth camping out for and things were pretty orderly at the places we went. I think at this point its more of a bonding experience for us than it is about scoring some mega deal.

    Though, I think I can hear my scale cringing in anticipation of my return home tomorrow. It will not be a happy meeting.

  23. You’re not supposed to count calories during the holiday’s Ed. It’s supposed to be one of the many things you are on holiday from.

  24. Glad to see that everyone’s T-Day went well. I’d always thought Black Friday had been named by retail employees, because of the horrors faced on this day (I worked many Black Fridays at Sam Goody in the mid-90s). There was never any blood, although I recall a few occasions when there should have been.

    I’m going to continue to do some things around here and laze for a bit – but I expect we’ll see 112 in a few hours.

  25. I haven’t read the full article yet, but it appears that ‘heavy’ water is better at eliminating free radicals in the body, FRs have been implicated in the aging process.

  26. There’s this green tea they have at the downtown office. I love it simply because it says on the package “prevents free radicals”

    I always find that statement amusing.

  27. Here’s a silly question. I know why US and Canada celebrate Thanksgiving. Since England is more of an original, not a colony, do you have a similar holiday?

  28. Well it’s related to harvest festivals..which are mostly irrelevant for people who live in urban areas.

    So the answer would be a no. In terms of families getting together for a big meal, it’s really only the Christmas holiday.

  29. Have fun, everyone. Sorry for the extra day’s wait, Vanamonde. In the meantime, here is my blahblahFish creation (thx for the link, Bunny):

    Sufficiently it is sufficient! It was that of the snake of these motherfuckin of the plane surface of this motherfuckin in me

    OK, now to edit.

  30. Sorry for the delay TEB.

    Just checked through my desk drawer and couldn’t find the codes for a 1.5m transfer. :(
    The best I could do is the codes for $2.29, $4, and $12.50 (U.S.). Oh, and of course the LAUNCH codes which are given out to every American.
    Just in case.

  31. Just returned home from the Merry Main Street Festival in Safford, AZ. More exciting is the fact that I just discovered Mork and Mindy Marathon on Sci Fi!
