Thanksgiving MIsadventures

After hitting a freak snowstorm in the Virginia mountains, we found we were really tired, so we called up TheCSO's mother in Charlotte and asked if she'd like to have dinner with us so we could have an excuse to get off the road.

After dinner, we were tired.

Now we're staying at the CSO's mom's house for Thanksgiving lunch.

Smile. Nice thing about family, they have to take you in.

So I am blogging, drying dishes, watching the parade and eagerly awaiting the happy faces that will ensue when TheCSO's grandparents get here to find us. My sister-in-law has made a great Thanksgiving lunch.

We will get to Atlanta in time for dinner.

Katie Couric just doesn't sound into it this morning. She has a Ben-Stein-like delivery. Maybe she's not feeling well. TheCSO and I decided that it would rock if Comedy Central set up their own reviewing stand and had wiseass commentary. The CSO and I don't normally watch things like the Macy's Parade, but we would totally tune in for that.

Tommy Tune as Doctor Doolitte? Tell me Jon Stewart couldn't do something hilarious with that.

Kristen Chenoweth creeps me out. I'm not sure why. But as the ChaliceMom's daughter, I can totally sing along with "Oklahoma!"

I'm not sure why the Brooklyn bridge needs its own float, but the lead singer of the band playing on it is a cutie.

PB is live blogging her Thanksgiving, too.

who really has asked "is there anything I can do?" a bunch of times.

Oh and here's a quirky blgo quiz:

I'll be seeing you in purgatory eventually, I guess.

You know why Kristen Chenowith creeps you out? Because she's a perky little munchkin with the raw, naked ambition of Eleanor of Aquitaine, and that's a creepy combination.

There is NO NEED to add an obligato the final verse of "Oklahoma." None at all. The lyrics are, "And when we sayyyy, YAY! A yip-eye-oh-ee-aaaaaay! we're only saying you're doin' FINE OklahomA! OklaHOMA, okay!"

It is not, "And when we saaaaay, aaaah aaaah aaaaaa AHHHH ahhh!"
