In this post: The real Santa Claus, a Thanksgiving Day confession.
Yee-haw and HAPPY THANKSGIVING, people! Although I’ve run through the Howdygram’s entire holiday menu in a couple of previous posts I’ll include it again for you now in case you give a remote crap about this: 1) a Boston Market turkey thing that you have to bake for 90 minutes; 2) a small definitely-NOT-worth-the-price container of Boston Market’s spinach casserole; 3) a box of turkey Stove Top stuffing; 4) a can of Ocean Spray cranberry sauce; and 5) gravy. From a jar.
For dessert Sam will consume a pumpkin pie as big as a radial tire with an entire can of Reddi Whip. I can’t have any because I’m diabetic, but that’s okay ... watching him eat pie is the best part of our evening entertainment. However, since we’re figuring on dinner at 5 p.m. I have to get our turkey thing in the oven RIGHT NOW. (Excuse me for a few minutes. Thank you.)
In case you missed Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this morning on TV — or avoided it on purpose, like we did — I’m pleased to provide the following four animated GIFs with highlights of the entire event. From top to bottom: Al Roker, the Rockettes, Ronald McDonald (terrifying) and Spongebob Squarepants (nice teeth).
In case you’re wondering, I decided not to bother with a GIF of Santa because he didn’t look anything like Edmund Gwenn. I refuse to accept substitutes.
