Emily says I need to go back about 50 pages and start reading to find out what the parade is about. Okay, I will, but not tonight. I should get to it in the next couple of days. Tomorrow is a fairly rare Saturday that I am not working, so I'll have some time to read.

:lol::lol::lol::lol:

Oh this cracks me up........the very scholarly Peter, goign back to see our TOTAL and COMPLETE buffoonery and madness.

:lol:

Folks........can I just say this............I am sitting here, as we speak, cooking the herb-incrusted turkey breast, five pounds, for which I paid TWENTY-ONE DOLLARS. :o:o:angry:

Yeah, no one had a fresh or frozen certifiably gluten-free breast in town........so I had to go to this posh market.........it's free-range, organic, and it has a college degree, this turkey. :huh:

Yeah, just for me...........$21. Good gawd. Can't you guy a whole turkey for around $30? :huh:

will begin selling precious valuables on ebay next week.

:huh::lol:

To say that I would NEVER leave the house on the day after Thanksgiving is a MASSIVE UNDERSTATEMENT.

:lol:

I can't imagine a WORSE day to shop.................but hey, it's like a contact sport, and many people love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wait until Monday, when crowds are safely gone, to venture out. :lol:

I hate crowds. :ph34r: But listen here, you spry young thing, you have a great time, battling all that bargain heinosity.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

:lol: spry young thing, *giggle* Just thinking about the extravaganza of jaw-dropping sales coming up sends a sort of gleeful energy zinging through my body. I... LOVE... bargain hunting! :D It's one of my main missions in life. The first time I went shopping on Black Friday, I was hooked.

Now I'm one of those people that gets all the circulars in the paper the day before Thanksgiving... circle everything I want, draw up an itinerary of where I want to be, and when. (This also must be coordinated with my father's shopping list- I do a lot of his shopping for him! Cuz I love shopping.) Of course, I also schedule in time to meet the girls for lunch!

I love shopping and bargain hunting so much... It's a good thing I'm always broke, or we'd have way too much crap.

Speaking of bargains! :( Egad on the itty bitty turkey breast!

I actually bought my turkey tonight. I hadn't planned to yet, but- I was at Walmart and spotted a freezer full of Country Pride turkeys, and I though, "Hmm, that brand sounds familiar." I walked over and flipped one over, and sure enough- it was labeled gluten-free in bold print. Fabulous! 21 lbs for 17 bucks. :ph34r: Don't smack me, Susie! :lol:

Ah, Peter....should be quite an adventure, wading through the madness of our plans from so many pages ago. Sit down, and grab an alcoholic drink... :D

Susie, we really shouldn't put Annie under added stress. We'll forget the squirrels, and Gus can just be entertained with the smell of yeti. ...Ah, and the smell of The Hoff!! Man, that may just do in the sensitive olfactory system of my dog. But, the smell of wee is a wonderful thing to them...

I forget what a huge holiday Thanksgiving is to you guys. As big as Christmas, isn't it? No big fanfare here on our holiday... :( just the Monday off.

Black Opal Chardonnay (from Australia) was a start. After about 20 pages, I needed something a bit stronger. A snort of St Remy kept me going.

I went back fifty-three pages to page 280, and was surprised that I had only gone back 17 days to October 24. Geez, this thread is active. I read from there to the current post, but I didn't find the parade answer, or the origin of the yeti. I guess that I will have to go even farther back. Tomorrow is another day.

Peter, Peter ...(he of splendiferous felines)......you are indeed a brave man to :unsure: ....go back in this thread.

Chardonnay (though nice) is not nearly up to the job and I would advise hard spirits liquor - it's v.dangerous and you may be gone for days lost in the Silly vortex..............good luck old chap....we'll be thinking of you!!!!

About 25 years ago I purchased a fresh turkey from a turkey farm and for about an 18 lb. bird it ran me about $25. Now I can't tell you how it tasted and if it was worth the money because my hard-headed mother in law overcooked


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Mygawd...we've been circling through this vortex for a lot longer than I thought. I think this kind of thing commonly happens within vortexes--time bends, and perhaps even disappears completely. I have spent a moment on here, and the sun has set, the kids are suddenly home from school, Gus very badly needs out...an hour, not a moment. :lol: Guess it'll be 100 pages back to hit the Parade Plans, Peter (wow...that alliteration should be put into a song--so catchy!

Congrats Ptaum !!

Hubby had his first after around 2 yrs gluten-free (boy did he turn it into 'man flu' instead of just a cold :rolleyes: )

OMG- man flu :lol: :lol: :lol: I can ONLY imagine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE the BADASS snow poodles! Alaska- Where the odds are good, but the goods are odd!!!!!!!

Gus can just be rented out for poodle warmth - THAT's IT!!!!!!!!!! I really do think he looks fabulous in his hat........... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Red rover red rover send warm Gus right over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Allo, Will, and Bev's kitties can certainly use Peter's kitties in their fish-shaped float. This will mean the cats and dogs each have their own.....

Yea--whatever happened to the parade--is it still on? :unsure:

Parade still on!!!!! My female cat, Frisca, would probably SHRED the yeti....uh oh...is that like frisking the wookie? "God, I'm tired. I was really shredding the yeti last night!"

Peter- Send me your family photo! Just PM it to me. I love Meow Meows (have 2).

Emily- I love the new royal headress as modeled by Gus. Shall we call him King Gusteau????

I'M BACCCCCCKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I missed you guys- I was getting my bacteria evaluated in NYC and I have to admit if anything good has come from getting Lyme and it's evil co-infections it's that I get to go to NY and try to explain American women to a cabbie from Bangladesh who wants to get married but fears us (don't blame him!) and listen to stories about love child houses and polygamy from a Muslim cab driver in Harlem. And I FINALLY got to gorge at Risoterria. New York is FUN!!!!!!!! And this country mouse NEVER thought she'd say that!

I forgot what St. Remy is. Maybe THAT's what we need, whilst reading? :lol:

The yeti - - should I tell him? I do recall it had to do wtih whether a restaurant in the south was gluten-free/cf/yf - etc. And we just went wild with it -

Chardonnay (though nice) is not nearly up to the job and I would advise hard spirits liquor - it's v.dangerous and you may be gone for days lost in the Silly vortex..............good luck old chap....we'll be thinking of you!!!!

OMG spirit liquor. :lol: How DO you do that word cross-out thing you clevah girl???????????

:lol:

Hi Deb!!!!!!!! OMG - so glad your MIL isn't poisoning - er, cooking any more........ :unsure: Um, 15 minutes a pound? well that's why my bird was a bit on the dry side............and BTW I couldn't discern ANY huge different in taste in my pedigreed breast............... :angry::lol:

OMG :lol: :lol: :lol:

You know, we haven't heard a PEEP from our founder during her WHOLE honeymoon.....what has he been up to, exactly? :huh:

Yes- we need the Susie's Lame Psychotic Dingo fund!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SAVE the dingos! OMG- SusieQ maybe the panic attacks are due to being overworked as a model. has she been out late night partying with Kate Moss and living on lettuce?????? :ph34r:

THAT is where she's been, so late at night! and all the coffee and cigarettes - I just HAVE to get her into rehab right away..............I'll call Lindsay's agent..........

Bev, as former and most recent queen, I second your motion that Amanda gets extra time in her reign. Perhpas - 20 extra pages? Of course - that really throws us off our neatly-arranged Reign by 100 marks.......... probably too hard for us. :lol:

I'M BACCCCCCKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I missed you guys- I was getting my bacteria evaluated in NYC and I have to admit if anything good has come from getting Lyme and it's evil co-infections it's that I get to go to NY and try to explain American women to a cabbie from Bangladesh who wants to get married but fears us (don't blame him!) and listen to stories about love child houses and polygamy from a Muslim cab driver in Harlem. And I FINALLY got to gorge at Risoterria. New York is FUN!!!!!!!! And this country mouse NEVER thought she'd say that!

Bev OMG. King Gusteau, YES! that's it......but isn't he our queen? and the Badass Snow Poodles - methinks that would make a GREAT name for a band!!!!!! :lol: In fact that's IT, those are the traveling musicians who will accompany our parade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and your cab driver counseling - why how perfectly fun and fascinating!!!!!!!! The one time I was in New York - I walked around a couple of nights, alone, until midnight, in Manhattan. SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!! Fascinating, just tons of people around - not like this dreadful bore of a place in which I grew up..................... :huh:

more later - - will tell you about my FABULOUS pre-thanksgiving Thanksgiving yesterday.........

OMG listings are ending on ebay in two hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Vintage purse is at $99........way more than I thought!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've seen these things go for $40 and $50 - - IT MUST BE THE CANINE SUPER MODELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :rolleyes:

Jacob addresses the man behind the counter: 'Are you the owner?'

The pharmacist answers, 'Yes.'

Jacob: 'We're about to get married. Do you sell heart medication?'

Pharmacist: 'Of course we do.'

Jacob: 'How about medicine for circulation?'

Pharmacist: 'All kinds.'

Jacob: 'Medicine for rheumatism and scoliosis?'

Pharmacist: 'Definitely.'

Jacob: 'How about Viagra?'

Pharmacist: 'Of course.'

Jacob: 'Medicine for memory problems, arthritis, jaundice?'

Pharmacist: 'Yes, a large variety. The works.'

Jacob: 'What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for Parkinson's disease?'

Pharmacist: 'Absolutely.'

Jacob: 'You sell wheelchairs and walkers?'

Pharmacist: 'All speeds and sizes.'

Jacob: 'We'd like to use this store as our Bridal Registry.'

"Peruse our Parade Plans, Peter"...)

Finding the first suggestion of a parade (by Emily, as it turns out) took me back 131 pages, to post number 3021 on page 202. And that was only a month ago. I have been reading off and on all day, and am now on page 244. I started on page 280 yesterday, so I still have a lot to catch up on. You people here are, well, I'm not quite sure of the right word for it.

The St Remy brandy helped last night, but this thread calls for something serious. A new, non-feline avatar is called for! :lol: Cheers!
