Sunday Funnies/Happy Thanksgiving

Today we celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving. That's right it's not at the same time as American Thanksgiving. We put some space between gobblers and Santa. And at this time of year we still get to play golf.

Always great funnies, dufus!

Regarding the Nobel Prize for locating the brain's GPS: I wonder if the woman, being the spouse of one of the scientists, was 'finally' asked to join the two-man research team.

Forgot to add: Happy Turkey Day!

Love the Grand Poobah launching the CF18.
I almost wrote "christening" instead of launching. But the planes are older than that.
Yesterday, I completely missed scrolling down to see the rest of your post on Canadian Thanksgiving. I guess it's only apropos that I'm seeing it now, eh? Happy Thanksgiving, you and Maryse. Hope you're having a good one...doing whatever it is that you Canadians do on this day. :)

So, wait, do you eat turkey on Canadian Thanksgiving, or do you just visit a Tim Hortons or something?
I guess we have Tim Hortons in Michigan now, though I still haven't been to one.
I hear good things.

Since I don't really celebrate Thanksgiving, I'm happy enough just to stick a frozen pizza in the oven.

Behind every man searching for a brain is a woman with one.

And we had plenty. Thanks.

Isn't that crazy. Do you think they'll hold up on the flight over to Iraq?

thanks Bryan. Actually we spent the afternoon driving back from my brother's using all the back roads and avoiding the major highways. It was a delightful, lazy drive.

We do both. At Thanksgiving Tim's has a special Turkey donut with double double cranberry flavoured coffee.

I'm not sure what's more embarrassing; the fact that I can't tell if you're joking or the fact that I would actually be excited to try a turkey donut. It would be like stuffing in convenient glorious handheld form!

I know it'd be great. Alas it doesn't exist. I, and my odd-ball gastronomic tastes made it all up. Sorry to keep you hanging, Janna.

Ok, I googled "turkey donut" and found this...

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
