Look what we’re getting for Thanksgiving

Oof! It is upon us.

Still, we’re poised to do the thing. You know…the thing. We eat our T’day as an evening meal, about 9:30, because – what the hell? It’s England and nobody knows what the traditions are. I make ’em up as I go.

Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone! Or had one, as the case may be.

Yes, Happy Thanksgiving, fellow minions. If you hear a loud bang! echoing across the pond in a few hours time, it’s not Vlad finally having lost it, it’ll be Stoaty’s pressure cooker. Wish us luck. See you on the other side.

@Uncle Badger, I was always skeert of pressure cookers after Mom’s blew Swiss steak all over the kitchen.

I’m thankful for my fellow Stoatians and all my invisible online friends, and if family is far away…this is still pretty good advice.

Even with all the global sources of feces being thrown into a a million fans, there is still much to be Thankful for, today and every day. Let’s be thankful that we’re not among stranded travelers in some third world airport, e.g. Trenton, New Jersey.

Thank you Stoaty, thank you Uncle Badger, thank you all for being here.

We had a nice roast chicken, with mashed potatoes, kang kong (local veggie) and canned cranberry sauce that I have been hoarding for a couple of years. Just barely over the expiration date (months, not years), so it still tasted okay.

We don’t dare buy a frozen turkey at a foreigners shop – they cost from $75 and upwards for a small bird. Ooof. And the local birds (we have a couple on the farm here) are rather . . . gamey. Okay, REALLY gamey. Not an enjoyable eat.

Everyone having fun on Twitter these days? Should be a treat next week after Musk opens the flood gates and un-bans the currently banned.

I read an article that analyzed the Twitter financials and it speculates that with all of the layoffs, Twitter should be profitable now. Would be nice if true. Now if Musk would just buy the US Government and do the same type of house cleaning.

Ah yes, pressure cooker, beans and mutton in Nova Scotia, the relief valve popped, firing beans in a stream at the ceiling while the poor Labrador scuttled from place to place trying to avoid ricocheting bean bits and mutton chunks.

For those brave enough to use one…omg…some awesome recipes. See Pressureluckcooking.com. We use one at least once a week without blowing things up.

Happy post-Thanksgiving to the Badger and Sweasel! Do ya’ll have an equivalent to Black Friday? MizChitlins and I are determined to stay home and overdose on leftovers and college football today.

Hope all the Weaseloids had a magnificent Turkey Day! Who knows what the future will bring?

From the book of Turkeydamus.

The future will bring: turkey soup, open faced sliced turkey sandwiches with gravy, repeat turkey dinner, turkey pot pie.

@Durnded Kim Kardashian in a thong, No. Chris Hemsworth in budgie smugglers, yes.

Brits have adopted Black Friday, but they have no idea where it comes from, so they start it a week earlier. This invariably makes me panic thinking I got the Thanksgiving date wrong (I did one year).

@BJM, I like Kim and the Carcrashian extended hoard as much as I like smallpox and Duchess Meagan of Wails and former Prince Ginger.
But the Daily Fail has this daily multi article fascination with them.

@BJM — Many thanks! I’d never run across the term “budgie smuggler” before. Funny and ever so vividly descriptive!

@Durned…it’s not a fascination; it’s a mutual cash machine…the Kardashians make takusan okane from photo rights and the Mail sells ads, gets clicks, ect… it’s a con game of sorts…been going on since broadsheets were invented. The Kardashians may be the tackiest herd on the planet, but The Momager never misses an opportunity to turn a buck…she may be the shrewdest entertainment manager ever.

@Uncle Al…too right, Aussie English is colorful, blunt, and they enjoy punning and wordplay.
