I went to the same place I've gone every year since getting married (17 years now) to a little town Northeast of Manhattan,KS called Frankfort, KS. It's on KS hwy 99, south of US 36. The routine is: 50 or more people in a two bedroom farmhouse, meal at noon, touch football on the high school field at 1:30, pie at 3pm, head home around 4:30pm.

No TV, so I listened to the Green Bay/Chicago game on 810 -their signal booms in the daylight hours- and fell asleep in the la-z-boy. I'm too old to play football anymore. Learned my lesson a couple years ago. Play for an hour, nurse a sore hamstring for three weeks after. Let the kids have the fun now.

I really like Frankfort. Everybody has been really nice to me there, although I'm the only Mizzou Tiger in the family. The rest of the family is pretty much an even split between KU and K-State.

A couple pictures: The Frankfort skyline, a Frankfort Limo, and the bunch coming home for pie after the family football game.

Hope you all had a fun Thanksgiving!

It was ok. Went to the grandparents house like we always do. Had a big "dinner" at 1 o'clock for about an hour, then went home and took a 2 hour nap. Damn turkey. Then I woke up and watched some of the Ravens/9ers game, watched some Seinfeld, played some Skyrim/Bioshock/Zelda til about 2 am. It was a nice calm lazy day.

I had second round of turkey/taters/cranberries (the holy Thanksgiving trilogy) and watched the SF-Baltimore game. It was a good game, fell asleep right afterwards, woke up about midnight, turned off the TV and then slept today till 9:30. That's what makes America great!

I took two naps, watched a little football in between, made taco salad and went to a high school basketball tourney in the evening to see my daughter do her pom pon routine. Damn near perfect.

It was awesome, Mr. gblowfish. Thanks for asking.

I ate some turkey and fixin's (had some excellent pumpkin pie with homemade crust and real, fresh whipped cream on top). Sat by the lake for awhile. Made scary faces at some squirrels. Watched a little crappy football. Decided to write a 3-act musical/play about Jim Morrison. Worked on a new invention I call, "The Orange Peel Attack Device".

All in all, a good day. Didn't get arrested and at no point was I forced to wrestle a full-grown chimpanzee.

Pretty good, so far.

I don't get them ripped from my skull until Monday, Mr. seclark ... the 28th. So in the meantime, we're spending a lot of time together in order that, after they're gone, we will always have those memories to fall back on.

Seriously, though. I am not ... at all ... looking forward to this. As of now, I'm trying to decide if I should have all 4 taken out (per my dentist's recommendation) or just go with 2. The fact is that only 1 is bothering me, but I don't want to be un-even. Honestly, I don't know which way to go on that particular point.

I'm a bloated pig still, and it's been well over twelve hours since I "stopped eating." Good thing I work this weekend. I'm hoping that the family finishes off the rest of the food without me. Oh fuck. That pie is calling to me again. Gotta go.

Went to my girlfriend's dad's TG in Cameron. Ate a whole bunch. Died slowly on the couch for about an hour. Went to my dad's TG in Savannah. Too much driving. Proceded to eat a bunch of dessert until I felt like I was going to die. Drove back to Platte City.

Died on the couch for a while. Played GOW3 for a bit. Watched Hoosiers. Pie break in between. Watched Edward Scissorhands. Slept from 1 until 11 AM. Woke up feeling awesome.

My thanksgiving was alright. My wife's birthday ended up on it this year so we got a sitter and celebrated wednesday night, went out to eat with my friend, his grilfriend and one of my wife's friends. Had a great dinner then went out to the p&l district and then went home to drink. Played a 'strip' card game and we all ended up naked about 2am. Then had an orgy type thing until about 8am. Slept till 2 when the kids came back and had turkey at the inlaws. Then played football at my family's thing and sprained my ankle a little. Hurts pretty bad but I'm hoping it'll be good for work monday. Will be resting all weekend.

There's a lot of research that shows that women are more attracted to men with symmetric features. Just to be safe you should have the same number removed from each side.

Thanks, Mr. Rain Man. I was thinking the same thing. Plus, I have dimples on my cheeks that the chicks seem to dig. I am exceedingly hopeful that my wisdomtoothectomy will improve them without making it appear that I was once shot by an arrow in Mexico while attempting to steal one of the 13 Chrystal Skulls from an indigenous tribe.

By the way, do you guys know if they observe Thanksgiving or something similar in New Swabia? It seems like they would be really thankful just to be alive down there.

So if I randomly pick one person out of that pic, maybe you can tell me about them. I'll randomly pick...ohhhhh...let's see.....the person on the far left.

A lot of times, the people of New Swabia are just standing around or hanging out doing nothing particularly special and they freeze solid for no reason at all ... except for it being cold and all. Then, when that happens, they just leave you standing there all frozen and junk because you're now considered bad luck.

They say that, during a conversation in New Swabian, you are supposed to nod your head a lot to subtly confirm to the other person that you haven't frozen up yet. It would be bad if you were a narcoleptic down there. A guy could easily be confused with a frozen guy when he's just taking a short nap.

I was checking up on their local news. The biggest paper there is The New Swabian Examiner and it comes out once or twice a year. The lead story last year was about a chunk of ice that contained a prehistoric mammoth which is like a real, hairy elephant. They didn't know what to call it was, so they called it a real, hairy elephant that must have fallen asleep and was now bad luck.

New Swabia is pretty darn fascinating, really.

Crime is almost non-existent in New Swabia ... unless you count talking visitors and tourists into licking mailboxes and light poles. Shuddering is the National sport. And, it's the only country in the world where the snowflake serves as both the National Flower and Bird. They has a flag once, but it broke. Their National Anthem is, "Holt Mich Der Holle Hier Raus" or "Get Me The Hell Out Of Here."
