Best decision I ever made was to stop going anywhere for major holidays. We stay home for Thanksgiving and Christmas and everything else. I won't start traveling again for holidays until my kids have families of their own, and only whenever they invite me. Stay home from now on!! You deserve it.

Oh. My. Glob. That is completely horrifying and also amazing at the same time. And I'm glad no one was hurt!

Thank you! This happened 7 years ago so I've had many more relaxing Thanksgivings since then. Staying home is the best.

It is the most bizarre thing, isn’t it? I would take a nap and wake up and find myself significantly thinner. It was shocking and also fascinating, like a mad-scientist science experiment. I wish I had thought to take pictures of myself!

Hah, thank you! Luckily, everything turned out just fine, although I haven’t gone anywhere for Thanksgiving since then. I figure I’ve earned my right to stay home from now on. :D

The last time I traveled for Thanksgiving was when we drove up to my uncle’s house when I was pregnant with my youngest child. We were a full two hours late because it took us almost 8 hours to get there in some of the worst traffic I have ever seen on Thanksgiving Day. I spent the entire drive with a pie on my lap, Read more

Given that these turkeys are spending November terrorizing an area known as Holiday City within the town of Tom’s River makes me think that turkeys have mastered some concept of irony. That’s one of the signs of the apocalypse, right?

I watched Arlen Parsa’s video about twenty times in a row last night. It felt good.

I spent the first eighteen years of my life living in a haunted house. It was built in the 1700s and was one of the original houses in the town I am from. In its long life it was, at varying times, a boarding house and a foster home for wayward boys. It was also situated in the middle of nowhere. Our nearest neighbor Read more

I am just here to say that I hate Blippi. Haaaaaaaate hiiiiiiiiiiim. I think any other actor playing that “role” (if you can call it that) would be a vast improvement over this whiny-voiced whacko.

When I was 15, I got a job at Wendy’s. The usual, kind of shitty but mundane fast food job, where you work your way up from cleaning restrooms to tables to restocking the salad bar and the Frosty machine, until finally you get to either flip burgers or take orders. I wasn’t technically old enough to flip burgers (you Read more

I don’t know if this happens to anyone else, but one weird thing about my perception of pain is that deep somatic pain doesn’t faze me nearly as much as superficial pain. Breaking a bone, childbirth, those things hurt, but are totally bearable and basically don’t need meds for me. But I stub my toe? One of my kids Read more

Yep! I cannot imagine a parade of these guys during mating season. Stuff of nightmares.

Nope. Its not. These things have been known to attack birds. BIRDS.
