    Everyone in my family, and I mean EVERYONE, from in-laws to my mother's branch to my father's branch of the family tree, are either recovering or closet alcoholics, so I've actually never celebrated a Thanksgiving where alcohol was served. Since I am a *closet* alcoholic, and we are having Thanksgiving at my house this year due to the MIL's recent heart surgery, I am going to remove my BOX O'WINE from the refrigerator & hide it before they get here tomorrow.

    I can't think of a Thanksgiving that was particularly remarkable, either way. Maybe we should start serving alcohol & create some memories.

    I would serve myself wine openly. They're the alcoholics, not you. Well, I don't believe you are, really! I see nothing wrong with drinking wine on a regular basis. At all.

    If you're going through all the work and trouble of having dinner at your house, you deserve a drink or three.

    Ohhh, I deserve it all right. Let's just hope my brother-in-law who just got out of alcohol detox & my sister-in-law who just got out of rehab for her crack addiction use moderation, as my Southern Baptist mother & father-in-law look shocked!

    There is no one so tediously pious as a recovering addict. The psycho babble alone is enough to make me run. Drink, and drink heavily. Do it in the kitchen if you have to. You will need all you can get tomorrow.

    I'm one step ahead of you, girl. I'll be slipping off to the hiding place, now & then.

    I've never liked Thanksgiving, and I wouldn't mind if it went away. It can be a pain in the ass, it's filled with the stress of travel and being around family members you may not get along with. I'd much rather have a nice dinner with people I want to be with, instead of being crammed in with people out of obligation. Bleh.

    This may just be the bitterness from years of being dragged to family dinners with cousins that I can't stand.

    LMAO! I have to chime in here. Only way to survive the tediousness of a family member being a recent rehabber is booze, lots and lots of booze, for you, not them. The constant babbling about the evilness of their substance of abuse choice during the meal will be enough to drive you face down in the wine barrel.

    I did finally remember a very memorable Thanksgiving, way back in 1976 when my Uncle Joseph hosted the family. He put hash oil in the dressing. Post meal time everyone was too stoned to fight.

    Worst one was a couple of years ago when on all days my oven door broke. I had to bunge cord my oven door shut. It was a convection oven with a switch the door closed in order for it to run. Managed to cook the turkey, but i was sure in panic mode till i thought of the bunge cord!

    Just got in from my Thanksgiving weekend filled with lesbians, cock fighting and surfing. More details later. Unforgettable.

    I love Turkey dinner so I usually gain a couple of lbs during the holidays.

    I've never much liked Thanksgiving anyway. It basically celebrates stealing land from indigenous peoples, not to mention massacring them in a variety of ways. People have lobbied to get rid of it in Canada since it's just an excuse to make money -- we never used to celebrate it until merchants got wind that it was another excuse to buy things. I'm not usually PC, but this is one holiday I can easily do without.
    I kind of agree with you on this. What happened to indigenous ppls are usually tossed aside by commercialism. I think Columbus Day could be another good example. But I also think that Thanksgiving, as phoney as it might be, can give willing ppl a chance to be reminded or learn what really happened in the history (e.g. you sharing your opinon on it with us). We don't have to feel guilty because we weren't the actual clonizers but it should still be acknowledged that indigenous peoples had their autonomy and land (means of subsistence and livelihood) taken away in order for nations to be built.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    The best Thanksgiving I can remember was the year my mom decided to make a ham in the pressure cooker. The thing exploded with a huge boom and was all over the kitchen. There was a huge stain on the ceiling that we never quite got rid of. I'm sure my parents thought that it was a disaster, but to a kid, it was sooo cool. Luckily, no one was in the kitchen at that moment.
    That sounds hilarious! Someone should start a "favorite exploding foods" thread!
