Of course, I should have known that. Return of the rusty Spife

heh. Yeah I guess that's what it boils down to! …out of all the cosmos in the universe to the understanding of concrete human existence and the meaning of life, we celebrate an entire history of fat-interracial-sex… with food! Oh, it is good to be human! : D

I see Thanksgiving as a day to be thankful for everything you have. While it began with some Native Americans helping some religious immigrants, nowadays that's how I see the holiday. So I'll be thankful for a (mostly) loving family, a job that's scary and satisfying, and being part of the community that we all call DrunkDuck (and the fact that it was there when I found myself “outed” from another community). :)

i dont think so. nor am i related to the wow server or the robot in germany.

i like the idea of a holiday in honor of interracial / international sex! that would be a great way towards world peace.

'Lothar of the Hill People' is an old SNL sketch..

I'd have to agree about the interracial sex. Really it's what sex should be, in terms of a genetic ideal. And that's a holiday I could support without reservation.

Only in upstate New York and some parts of Maine.

I think it's pretty cool that we do take time to count our blessings once a year. I do have a good deal to be thankful for this year too, so I guess in that respect I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving.

This will be the first year I haven't spent Thanksgiving with my family. Instead, I'm spending it with my best friend BetaJess's family! ^.^ It's very exciting, I think we'll have to bring our own food since we're vegetarians.

I'm going to Chicago for the break…To see “THE ADDAMS FAMILY MUSICAL” before it hits broadway. I win. I will also be doing homework during intermission.

duuuuuude. If you're gonna do that, you should definitely drop by. It's only like an hour drive up 94. And we've got way more cool stuff than Chicago. Though, that seems like a heck of a long drive just to see a musical.


I realized I never actually said what I'm doing. Aside from stealing all the left overs, I'm going to celebrate here before I head home by making a turducken. One of the security guards gave me a turkey because she didn't want me to go Thanksgiving without something ( For a while, it wasn't looking like I was going to be able to go back to my parents for the holiday. ), My boss gave me a duck from his most recent hunting trip and I'm going to buy a cornish hen at the market. I can't wait to find out how it tastes.

That is a big family… in a small house. Well, on the bright side you probably don't see most of them most of the year.

Great…. now you make me wish I had children… T_T

What cretin thought up the name for that abomination?

Because it looks to me like “turd” (as in a lump of poo) and as if the last part is just missing an “f”, not a “key” and a “chick”. -_-

Apparently in Europe they traditionally made that and similar sorts of dishes for at least the last thousand years… and yet they never in all that time came up with a name for it that awful.

Makes you think.

Still, I hope it tastes Marvellous! :)
Enjoy your thanks giving and time with your family!

No. everyone should boycot the holiday. main reason being that its all based on a lie. europeans waged genocide on the original people of the Americas. thats how they got the land. now they try to paint it like it was a big hugfest where everyone helped eachother. bullshit ! tottaly overlooking the fact that millions of people were systematically eliminated over several centuries.
LIES ! thanksgiving is a joke
thanks for the land. we're giving you smallpox !!
Technically, all holidays are built on lies.

~Jesus wasn't born in December. Christians stuck Christmas there to coincide with pagan holidays.
~Halloween was invented to harass the pious people celebrating All Hallows Day.
~All the Easter symbols are still pagan fertility symbols.

That said, I love holidays of all sorts. Not for their roots but for their current state and meaning. Virtually no one celebrates Thanksgiving as some kind of American white people meet natives holiday. It is simply a celebration to be thankful for what one has, the people around them, shelter, food. It's good to be thankful and appreciate these things because not everyone does have them. And it is arrogant and selfish not to take time and thank your good fortune, lucky stars, or Creator that you are alive and can eat food every single day, drink clean water, watch football, and have someone to enjoy all those activities with.

The original Thanksgiving wasn't “a lie” either. Even though it was a pretty violent, nasty, warring time. It was still a harvest season, and the people who were feasting were pretty damn happy to be alive. Only idiots think it was a “hug fest,” but it was still a harvest feast to show some humility and gratitude that they didn't starve to death in the wilderness (which was partly because a few of the native people were actually generous enough to show them how to live – even if they were not repaid kindly).

If you want to be technical, the “holiday” probably existed nearly at the dawn of human consciousness as a harvest feast. Ever since people first prayed to a rock or a tree, they have been giving thanks to divine beings for their harvest. Americans (and most other countries in one way or other) just slapped a name and date on it and attached a cute story to tell the kids.

~~~~

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It hasn't been corrupted by too much commercialism crap. To me, it is the ultimate holiday stripped down to the most basic essentials, enjoying time with family and friends and good food. Also, I love turkey.

a havest festival to thank the Earth or god or whatever is a great idea .
but the sugar coated fairy tales sold to kids on thanksgiving are wrong . better to say nothing at all than to show the native americans and the pilgrims hanging out partying together like everything is all cool . its just white washing history.
maybe if the original Americans had let the european invaders starve to death they would have had more time to get ready to defend themselves ..

I wouldn't mind having thanksgiving again. Living off Mac & Cheese is awful.

Got me. I never even thought about it. To me it's just been a combo word like brinner. At least until now. Now I'm just going to spend the entire time I'm eating it envisioning someone thrusting a giant turd… -_-*

I wanted to try making deep fried turkey, but then I was told of the horror stories of people who set their houses on fire… O_O

That's why the traditional way to do it is with a propane burner, a giant pot and several beers out on the driveway away from the house.

Heheh…. what a way to end my Thanksgiving… car broke down quite a ways from my house, and now I had to leave it at an apartment complex and walk home for an hour. Hopefully I can find someone to help me tow it home so I can work on what the problem is. From the way things look I think the fuel line may be clogged… or the fuel pump is out of commission… :(
