Happy Thanksgiving, You Hosers!

It's Thanksgiving in Canadia! See?? Bookie is educational, too!


Basically, Thanksgiving here means I will be roasting a turkey, NOT going to any sales and giving thanks for:



That picture. I mean. Honestly

My family, of COURSE. I tease about my kiddos a lot, and they totally are hooligans, but they're also the best thing in my life and I'm grateful every single screamy day that I was lucky enough to have them. Damnit and now I've veered into maudlin. Dance break!!


Yeah you know me! That's better. Okay; onwards!

I'm thankful for friends, online and irl-ies, been an unusual year and it's tested me in a lot of ways. I've changed too, I remember GossipMonster once said people came to Bookie because I was kind and I don't actually think that's the case. For one thing, I'm not the Kind One, that's Reno; I'm the One Who Thinks She's Hilarious. And people came to Bookie because it was a lot of fun. It's much quieter now, and that's not necessarily a bad thing, but new voices would never go astray. I'm a person of strong opinions and I dig those that are straightforward about theirs. I LOVE learning new perspectives.  I'm thankful for the good people I have around me.

I'm also thankful for good health, and good drugs for the hubs as he heals (WITHOUT THE DILL PICKLE SPITZ Gaaaawwww!!) and this platform to yak and yak and yak and yak and YAK so I can appear more normal elsewhere.

Ooh! And chocolate and coffee too! Violet reminded me. Without coffee, I wouldn't have the wherewithal to search out chocolate, which was made by the gods to provide happiness on earth.

Happy Turkey Day all!

  1. well happy thanksgiving to you. I hope you are cooking mountains of food to celebrate.

    We have no similar holiday here. Not sure if that just makes us ungrateful bastards or not?
    In any case, I am grateful for chocolate; my log burning stove; and the fact that V1's bedroom has remained immaculate for two whole weeks and 1 day.

    3. Oh my goodness, I completely misread that!!

      Does it smell like he's away at boarding school, like the commercial??

      Does it feel sort of empty good or empty bad?

      My reading comprehension isn't the strongest, I thought that was V2! And it was a miracle

  3. I've been completely wrapped up in this interview with Nicki Minaj; it's fantastic. She HANDLES it

  4. I read that as Piglet having a very small head. I put quite a lot of thought into the fact that his head is actually quite large in comparison to the rest of his body. Then I re-read it when my eyes were open all the way.

    That's all I've got. It's Monday for crying out loud.

    1. It's kind of blurry, hey??

      Delete
    2. It takes a good 20 minutes before my heads not blurry in the mornings. Especially on back to school Mondays.

    3. I think it's his ears that look so big

      Delete

    3. Except having to wait a week in between eps

      Delete
    4. Yes! Binge watching is so much better. And less commercial-y

      Speaking of...how are we looking for The Strain?

      Delete
    5. Finally finished S01 last night, so ready when you are lady! Not sure how often I'll be able to watch, hubs is back in a couple of days. But we should be able to squeeze a few in here and there!

      Delete
    6. Woo hoo! Maybe we can do it in the evenings after bedtime when all the east coasters are tucked in. We can play it by ear!

    7. Lol I can't believe I'm excited to watch Dr. SeaMonkey Wig again

      Delete
    8. It was flapping about all over the place in some parts there. I still lub him tho.

      Delete
    9. I first saw him in Law & Order LA with your Skeet, he played a playboy cop and I just couldn't quite get there with him...but then Peter Russo made me forget all about Playboy LA Cop

      Delete
    10. I started House of Cards S02 but had to take a break. Still so mad, and they are just all getting so much worse. Will probably pick it up again tonight now I've finished The Strain.

      I just had a look at Law and Order pics, that moustache! Ahahahaha

      Delete
    11. Wasn't that awesome????? Like a caterpillar died right on his face. You know they tested that with focus groups, right?? "Needs to look more testosteroni, sans melon hair. Let's give him a ridiculous pronstache!!"

      How does S2 open again?

      Delete
    12. It's Claire threatening baby mama, Frank fucking with the Chinese, Stamper being weird with little hooker girl, Lucas being set up by the FBI for cyber terrorism. Nothing too bad, but they're just throwing people under buses (or trains) left and right

      Delete
    13. I love that he embraces the bald IRL. I'm digging these pics

      Delete
    14. Oh yes, he's much more handsome without the bad wig. He did an interview about it where je pretty much said "only for Guillermo".

      Delete
    15. He looks great. I think he's got a lot of swagger, that mustache was soooooo not necessary

      Delete
    16. So maybe S02E01 tomorrow?

      Delete
    17. Sure, when is good? I've got it in download form, which reminds me, I think C-Dawg was gonna watch too, better find out when is good. Evening-ish?

      Delete
    18. Yep anytime tomorrow is good for me. After DWTS?

      Delete
    19. Count me in! I intentionally haven't watched S01. That way I will be totally lost and can focus on snarking over following the the actual story line

      Delete
    20. Ok well - New York, strange virus, teeny parasitic worms, gross stingers that come out of mouths, VAMPIRES!, eye worms, heads cut off, silver swords and bullets, terrible wigs and haircuts, abysmal accents, Nazi/Jew backstory, vampire turf war.

      Plus everyone's loved ones come back to feed on them.

      There pretty much caught up.

      Delete
    21. Woooooo. Awesome. I feel so in the loop now

      Delete
    22. How could you leave out Neck Baginas? They're the best part!

      Delete
    23. Oh shit, is that what you call them? I'm gonna go read the old episode blogs.

      And a sexy, blonde hacker broke the internet. On purpose.
