  I already had Canadian Thanksgiving in October...so I don't get to do anything in November...
I'll probably just be working on my paper.

There is no reason why you can't celebrate both holidays... They are in different months after all.

Personally I'll be visiting family on the day of for the big meal, then I'll be visiting friends back home for a day or two til I have to go back to work. I'll also be doing lots of homework during the week off from school.

I would like to celebrate American Thanksgiving...but there's no one to cook it for me here! And I'm certainly not going to...so, hopefully next year I'll be back down in California for thanksgiving.
Plus, I have started to see Canadian thanksgiving as the legit one, because American thanksgiving was moved from October to November way back in the day.

I'd cook something for you! I just don't know where you are and I'm a bit short on travel expenses for this year. :/

  First Thanksgiving in 22 years without my son being with us. : (

No plans this year. Maybe I'll go to McD's and get a McTurkey burger.

Yeah, but now there will be more leftovers for you, though it's not as much fun without him to share them with, I'm sure.

  Oh I think I'm going to do some extra special dishes this year. If I could get the funds, I'd make a turducken. Maybe a little Ferran Adrià inspired desert. I haven't used my siphon in a hot minute. I feel like putting an italian twist on the holiday...fried cranberry chèvre raviolis/apple spice gastrique/roasted balsamic cipollini onions/maple-whiskey sweet potato puree...well that's just off the top of my head...hmmm...

My bro and I usually hit up Ryan's or Denny's out of spite for traditional family holiday dinners. It's been a few years, so I don't think I'll be able to stomach Ryan's anymore.

  Ahriman, if you haven't got girls fawning all over you already, go find yourself a small flock and talk chef to them. Without that last little smug part, of course.

Seriously, I don't even like fancy dishes and I'm sitting here thinking, "Oh my!"

why's it gotta be all exclusive, huh? I mean, uh... I'm not fawning; I'm just appreciating an artist.

>Without that last little smug part, of course.
psh! No way, dude. It's totally necessary.

A turducken ?
Why would anyone eat something that begins with turd ?

  Working. Day shift this year for the first time in two.

I think the resorts stay open so it will probably be a day like any other, with some structure fires related to burnt food tossed in the mix.

Not that it matters...

lmao! as cool (or not) as a turducken may be, i find them to be 1. overly cheesy and not in the tasty way and 2. requiring an extensive amount of preparation and are generally a pain in the ass (mostly for the various birds involved).

but i have to agree with the turd comment...and to be honest i've never thought of it that way before. :/

  Happy Thanksgiving GTers!
And don't forget gluttony is a sin, and so is wasting food...so try to find the perfect balance between the two. : )

  I'm not sure if it's because I wore pants that fit or if I ate properly and knew when to stop, but I made it out feeling fine.

  See in November in the UK we look forward to something called Bonfire night, fireworks night or Guy Fawkes night. On this night we burn effigies of a guy called Guido 'Guy' Fawkes and unleash fireworks into the stratosphere with furious intent.

It's meant to celebrate the foiling of a plot by Guy and a band of conspirators lead by Robert Catesby to blow up the houses of Parliament and kill King James I and his family who attending the state opening of parliament.

due to my former catholicism and strong pro republican* beliefs I don't really celebrate it, i just thought i'd tell you what we get upto while you guys have your christmas practice run.

xx

*Small r republican before anyone says anything!!
