happy thanksgiving!


okay...

i wish you all, of course, a wonderful thanksgiving, a chance to spend time with and nurture your families, and especially a chance to take a moment and reflect on the things you have to be thankful for.

while i will be here on friday and i will have an all-new "five for friday", my pal, alison, sent over this great thanksgiving turkey trivia link and we thought it'd be fun to share with you! give it a shot--test your thanksgiving knowledge and see how much you know about that bird you're always eating...!

also up; i think i first linked this site a couple years back for anyone inclined to play some cool halloween hangman (which sharon and i played a little too often this past halloween season...) but now they've taylored it to take on thanksgiving as well (and, with that, can christmas be far behind...?)

Wow, 8 out of 20 on my Turkey Trivia. Not too good, but apparently high enough to be "turkeyrific."

I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving.

Todd- (and everyone else)
Have a great Thanksgiving.

I'll check out that Turkey trivia later.

I knew Cameron's character was named Natalie on the Angels 2 fer, but I didn't remember her surname being Cook.

Later.

I totally bombed in the Turkey Day quiz! I think I got like 7 right, but then I was just guessing really on them.

The hangman was really cool, even though I only did it once.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!

Happy Thanksgiving all!

I got 10 out of 20 on the quiz...And got wrong the one that involved the state I live in. Ooops! Who knew?
(Not me, obviously)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I'll give the turkey trivia a shot after I pick up some wet leaves.

I got 11 out of 20, my feathered friends should be proud of me.

We do Turkey on Christmas at my house, but what does the other 50% of american households eat. Ham? Roast Beef? Take out chinese?

Won and scored a 45 on Thanksgiving Hangman, but only played it once.

Happy Thanksgiving to Todd and the audience. Next Thanksgiving, we'll have read another several issues of our favorite comic!
