happy thanksgiving!


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...?)

here are the finals on that "five for friday" name the actor to the character to the movie question....

1. robert deniro

paul vitti--analyze this (and that)
james "jimmy" conway--goodfellas
archibald "harry" tuttle--brazil

2. winona ryder

susannah kaysen--girl, interrupted
annalee call--alien: resurrection
veronica sawyer--heathers

3. humphrey bogart

charlie allnut--the african queen
frank mccloud--key largo
rick blaine--casablanca

4. bruce willis

jack mosley--16 blocks
harry s. stamper--armageddon
butch coolidge--pulp fiction

5. cameron diaz

natalie cook--charlie's angels (and charlie's angel's: full throttle)
mary jensen--there's something about mary
tina carlyle--the mask

have a great thanksgiving!
smell ya later!

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.

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!
