    Thanksgiving Menus and Recipes

    First off, I love this thread. A few days ago, a "friend" on FB posted some meme about how no one needs to see your T-day picks, it's the same thing. BAH. My favorite posts are always food ones. I need to see some pics of birds and STUFFING. The wrong things y'all do to stuffing fascinate me. :P...

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu/BritBox Binge Watching: ******** Edition

    I tried reading the Wheel of Time books in college because a newer friend was reading them and, you know, bonding. I stopped reading around book five/six because (1) I feel like he just lost his way plot wise and was adding more storylines/people to compensate and (2) I had A LOT of problems...

    Hurricane Ida

    Oh man, all this time we could have been watching skating together! We've probably passed each other in Target :lol: or the old Charming Charlie's :wuzrobbed And trust me, you made a good decision not going to Brookestone. It has gone REALLY downhill in the past year and a half. I was planning...

    What can I say, we’re all gluten for punishment!

    Hurricane Ida

    Oh, one more: some friends of mine in PA arrived in Mississippi, escaping the damages from Ida. The idea that one escapes hurricanes by coming to the LA/MS GULF COAST is :lol: He's VERY salty about it.

    Hurricane Ida

    @TanithandBenFan , I'm an idiot. Are you talking about the River Chase in Jefferson, or the River Chase in Covington right off of I-12? If it's the one off of I-12, then yes, that's very, very close to me. I'm across from Pinnacle Parkway on the other side of 12. So update. MORE FUN! Soooo...

    Hurricane Ida

    No I'm on the Northshore in Covington, but weirdly, owned by the same property management company. I had a friend who lived at River Chase, she really liked living there.

    Hurricane Ida

    Sixteen years ago, I remember watching MY STREET flooded as hell on CNN from Hot Erica's apartment in Baton Rouge. I sort of detachedly noted that hey, that looks like my dresser bobbing by and Hot Erica asking me if I was, in fact, OK. I was not. I was worried. Not only about my dresser, but my...

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Games Closing Ceremony - Arigato Japan!

    This woman singing the Olympic Anthem is every kind of fabulous. +4GOE. Someday, she MUST play Ursula. This is one of the better closing ceremonies I've seen--I don't even really miss the crowds. I like that everything is done for the athletes, at eye-level for the athletes. This rendition...

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Games Closing Ceremony - Arigato Japan!

    I LOVE the tree girl. I mean, she was a tree. I know she was supposed to be a tree, but she totally embraced TREENESS. I hope some of my students watched the closing ceremonies; so much to discuss in a world history class.

    Your moment of the games?

    Congratulations to all the countries who won medals for the first time, or in events for the first time. It seems like there were more countries than usual who made it on the medal table. While I'm kinda :confused: by some of the new sports included and don't that all of them will (or should)...

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Games Closing Ceremony - Arigato Japan!

    Watching behind, but I'll be the lone voice in the woods who really likes the US closing ceremony outfits. It makes everyone look like happy, preppy sailors. You know like where their daddy bought them a commission.

    Rhythmic Gymnastics - Figure Skating's Summer Cousin!

    BUT DID THEY HAVE QUADS?!!!! Seriously, from what I read, what Liony did was the equivalent of a skater having an oopsie just skating around, just a weird mental break, which we all know judges tend to ignore, or at least not penalize too severely. It's a non-scoring element while Dina had...
