My friend didn't get a second copy of that*, someone else grabbed it first.

A bee-hive, cause she's a sweet honey.

Gotta go help the boy with his toys. It's tough job, but someone's gotta do it.

Yep, it's a beehive.


Gotcha. So what's up with the boar with tentacles? (I'm mostly kidding, presuming it's just supposed to be a stylized head.)

Yeah, I can't draw to save my life, so I used some clipart. All I did was the colouring.


Happy Thanksgiving everybody from America, around the world, and back to America again.

May all you FAWTLers have a great Thanksgiving (those who are celebrating it), and an equally marvelous Thursday to all the rest of you. *Headbonks* to all!

What's important is that he is being treated now. I'm sorry he waited so long, but let's be fair- I would probably still be waiting! I'm glad he could get treatment in time for turkey day so that he could enjoy it with you! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


*cough-cough-cough*

Ouch. Cough got more intense.


British are terribly undecided on what they want in CV - each site and template I see is different and they often contradict each other about order of presentation or expected information.

Or maybe Google just deliberately sends me contradictory information...


Mother is wrecked by cough as well.


At least I am writing monster for Monarch Of The Monsters...

Maybe you should do a Choose Your Own Adventure resume?


Only one job applied for today but I don't really feel like doing more on thanksgiving. Anyway shouldn't the dump be closed.

Thanksgiving calls COMPLETED!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!


Father hasn't returned from work yet - and its about two hours he should be back. There is no cell coverage around factory so he might be still there doing extra work.


Those were three hours of overtime. And he has to get up at 4:30 AM tomorrow for his next shift.

Scarab Sages

Family, good food, and football! What an awesome Thanksgiving.

I hope everyone is having a lovely day!!!


Well, FAWTLers, it's been the usual war with the pie crust, and once again, I lost. I don't get it. My mom, my sister-in-law, my best friend's daughter - they all say, "Pssht, there's nothing to it!", and turn out these lovely, flaky creations that could win the state fair. I....produce concrete. As in, break-you-teeth, you-could-use-this-for-battleship-deck-plating hard. Everything else, I can do. Turkey, no sweat. Stuffing and side dishes, ditto. Pie crust - well, at this point I should probably throw my paws up and admit that it just isn't going to happen. At least the pumpkin part will taste good!

Oh, yes. I am so, so thankful for modern antibiotics. Crazy got an actual night's sleep, and the cough is getting better. My parents are okay, so are the rest of the relatives, and you guys all rock. Happy Thanksgiving, all.


Need large blanket. Ate on large turkey and I have no energy to rampage....

Out of morbid curiosity, what recipe are you using? And how are you mixing in the butter/margarine? I'm trying to figure out how that is even possible. My mom had the same problem with pie crust and I had less than stellar results with mine until I found a better recipe than she was using.

This year is actually the first time I got the pumpkin filling 'right'. My previous efforts were perfectly fine, but not just like the pies from the store and my family was not happy with the difference. This was the first time I got the whole pie right. Didn't need the backup frozen pie after all. :)

I use the one my sister-in-law gave me, and she's gone and taken classes in food chemistry(!). For a 2-crust pie: 2 c flour, 1 tsp salt, mix, add 3 cold tbsp shortening (she uses Crisco. I use Crisco), blend w/pastry blender until you get little pebbles. Add 3 more tbsp shortening, blend, blend, blend until it looks like cornmeal. Add 1 tbsp ice water at a time, using your hand to work the ingredients together until it all forms a ball. Roll out with plenty of flour on a silicone mat, and that gets my SIL fantastic results every time. I've watched her do it. I've done the same damned thing, and I still get cement. *Throws paws up* If you've got a better idea how I could propitiate the Pastry Gods, I'd be thrilled to hear it.


Use vodka instead of water. No joking, it really does make it flakier.


Good Thanksgiving lunch, leftovers for dinner, burned an evening playing Final Fantasy, reading Terry Pratchett, and listening to awesome music. Time to snooze it all off and repeat the process tomorrow and Saturday, plus Kingmaker tomorrow night!

Anybody who has the unfortunate luck to be out of the house over the next two days, drive safely and be careful, and may God have mercy on your soul.

My wife is just learning her way around pie crusts now. She has made not one but three butterscotch pies. She is happy.

Got check by mail. Now, what I have to do with check to get money?

Maybe go to bank and open a current account. It's free in the UK and there's no cost to cash a cheque. (and sometimes there's freebies for current accounts)

Good morning FAWTLY Folk! Happy Friday!!

The boy barely stops moving, unless music comes on. For that he'll (temporarily) sit still. What's that about music and savage beasts.....?

In a game with my 7 year old nephew I once introduced them to the island of Nevlund, populated by pirates, barbarians, and a village of halflings who worshipped Pytorpin, Emperyeal Lord of youth and adventure.
