Put On Your Fat Jeans and Watch a Movie!

Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

This is the first Thanksgiving in YEARS that I haven't had to work! No way in hell I'm stepping in a theatre on blessed Turkey Day unless it's to be one of the masses attempting to escape my family!

This year I plan to spend Black Friday not at the mall, but rather, on my best friend's couch, eating leftovers and watching the worst of the worst girl movies and holiday films. The line-up includes: Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, Baby Mama, Made of Honor and maybe the Family Stone to get us into the Christmas spirit. If motivated, we may head out to see Role Models, but hell, we've been saying that for weeks now!

Now, just because I can, I'm gonna list my top 5 Thanksgivings in no particular order.
1. Thanksgiving 2003, Spokane, WA. 4 pies, 4 people. Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Paul McCartney's Back in the USA.
2. Thanksgiving 2004, Brockton, MA. After feeding the homeless, singing BOYZ II MEN on the top of the car, during a windstorm at Old Silver Beach on Cape Cod.
3. Thanksgiving, 2000, Spokane, WA. An introduction to hockey. Lifetime movies with candied yams reheated with extra marshmallows.
4. Thanksgiving 2007, New York, NY. After staying up all night, going to the Macy's Day Parade still drunk.
5. Thanksgiving 2002, London, England. Singing in the American Choir at St. Patrick's Cathedral, eating some version of the American meal at a British restaurant, while skipping school!

"Role Models" eats it.

You both suck. I've noticed that none of your favorite Thanksgivings are spent with your family. I curse you -- may you spend the next Thanksgiving listening to Chinese Democracy on repeat. And NOT driving around the Buttes.

That's because when I spend Thanksgiving with my family, I usually end up in the middle of nowhere (ie the Buttes) listening to Chinese Democracy really really loudly.

That sounds like the best Thanksgiving ever! I wanna be a Maxwell!

"Over the River and Through the Woods" - down; "Chinese Democracy" - up.
