    My family serves roasted prime rib in a Dijon mustard crust. Never had turkey, goose or ham for Christmas.

    We always had another turkey when I was growing up. I remember my mother trying a goose once, but to mixed reviews. Ham is for Easter.

    At my house Christmas was Mom's day off. We'd get a deli tray, some cold-pack cheese, and a selection of crackers and munch on those all day in our pajamas. Probably some spiced apple cider (non-alcoholic) in the Crock-Pot.

    My family does neither Thanksgiving, Christmas, nor Easter, but we have turkey regularly. Like usually at least once a month. It's cheap protein.

    IDK, not turkey or goose or duck that's for sure.

    Usually been turkey and ham when invited to
    dinner for either winter holiday.
    Be happy with a tub of fries, fish sticks, and tartar
    sauce. No point in getting all stressed out about
    what to eat.
    Though I suppose if you are so inclined, you can
    roast a chicken, after popping a cheep beer and
    making it sit on it in the oven. :p

    Hey, lemme out!!!!


    That happened to our cat once when I was a kid. He'd crawled into the laundry basket for a nap in a nice, warm comforter, and boy was Mom surprised when the blankets started moving as she was loading the machine! Check those blankets, people...

    True, but I'm one of those picky people who like to flip the bird halfway through (did I really say that?) to brown the skin on both sides. If the limbs are loose it makes the process awkward, if not dangerous.

    That's an option. But the toothpicks worked.

    Or in our house, Easter and New Year's both.

    We always had turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas, too. The main difference was that while both feasts would have pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, and all that, Christmas dinner began with oyster stew and finished off with German sweet chocolate cake. Which I didn't like, because of the coconut in the icing.

    TMW, you're outside, playing fetch with your Labrador/Alsatian and you hear a literal ground-shaking boom followed immediately by two...shrieks?

    I'm a little freaked out, I admit. Dog gets bored. I go out to play with him. Big boom happens. Not unusual. It's KY, there always someone dynamiting something, sometimes even using it to mine. Then I can't explain what happens afterwards. It sounded at first like a high-pitch female shriek(like a seriously upset, short, monosyllabic scream), but it was repeated exactly. It happened twice, like a recording played twice, separated by a single pause. Like some sort of fucked up siren? Gonna stay in now.

    Guys, it's happening again. I can hear it through the walls of my house. It's freaking the dogs out. It sounds like cannon-fire. WTF!?

    That moment when you're only four scenes away from finishing the detailed plan for your WIP, so f*** it, you're staying up until it's done.

    I didn't know they let you live on the artillery range in KY. :p

    Honestly though that sounds kinda scary, might want to stay
    in, and possibly a fair distance from windows, just in case
    they break due to the shockwave from the blasts.
    Stay safe. :)

    And because life is determined to leave me with more questions than answers...I will never know what in the hell that was about. *sigh* It happened a maximum of three times and never again. My brain is going to spend the rest of the day coming up with different possible solutions of what that was and none of them will be right.

    I'm just going to write it off as someone blasting land for construction purposes or mining and maybe it had a weird safety alarm or something.

    They’ve arrived. Watch out for the black clouds and lightening bolt striking the same spot three times in quick succession.

    That moment when you learn that the sharpening stone in the sheath of those five-dollar 80s "survival knives" (the ones with the bottle opener on the spine and the compass cap on the hollow pommel) was inspired by a real knife issued to special operations forces in Vietnam:

    TMW you find two books by two different authors and publishers (and cover artists) with the exact same snake design on the cover. same color, same shape.... the only thing different about the covers is the titles (obviously), and the background the snakes are on.

    TMW you're not doing anything but your job and your friend just says aloud: "Pacman is better than Ms. Pacman."

    TMW you realize that everybody's 'fifteen minutes' has merged into a continuous stream.
