    I received my SS delivery on Friday, just as I was leaving for the weekend. It doesn't make any noises, but it's still hard not to open it!

    My world is changing
    I'm rearranging
    Does that mean Christmas changes too

    Where are you Christmas
    Do you remember
    The one you used to know
    I'm not the same one
    See what the time's done
    Is that why you have let me go

    Christmas is here
    Everywhere, oh
    Christmas is here
    If you care, oh

    If there is love in your heart and your mind
    You will feel like Christmas all the time

    I feel you Christmas
    I know I've found you
    You never fade away
    The joy of Christmas
    Stays here inside us
    Fills each and every heart with love

    Where are you Christmas
    Fill your heart with love

    Dreamer, do you know "A Hard Candy Christmas"? It was a Dolly Parton song. I haven't heard it for a long time, even though I live right down th road from Ms Parton. Would love to have you sing it - if you can....

    Just wondering if anyone elses turkey is still realtively frozen. I took mine out of the freezer on Saturday and set it on the top shelf of the fridge. Birdzilla is still pretty much frozen. I guess I'll leave it out tomorrow to thaw.
    Gran of six have you ever tried the spiked eggnog you can get at the liqour store? I'll bring a bottle to the corner and you can try it with me. Anyone else like to join us?

    I haven't tried it because I am lactose intolerant; but I will try the spiked part of the egg nog. We used to make it back when I was a kid. But with the raw egg fuss, I would go with the stuff from the liquor store. I guess if there is enough alcohol, it wouldn't matter whether I was lactose intolerant or not. Is there any vodka floating around? I am a vodka drinker too. And no one has mentioned Mimosas, we can drink them for breakfast.

    Mimosas did someone just say mimosas? I almost got whiplash from my head spinning around! Every day would be better if we started it with a mimosa!!!!!!!!!!!! IMHO anyway.

    Hey, maybe I'll dye my hair
    Maybe I'll move somewhere
    Maybe I'll get a car
    Maybe I'll drive so far
    They'll all lose track
    Me, I'll bounce right back
    Maybe I'll sleep real late
    Maybe I'll lose some weight
    Maybe I'll clear my junk
    Maybe I'll just get drunk on apple wine
    Me, I'll be just

    Fine and Dandy
    Lord it's like a hard candy christmas
    I'm barely getting through tomorrow
    But still I won't let
    Sorrow bring me way down

    I'll be fine and dandy
    Lord it's like a hard candy christmas
    I'm barely getting through tomorrow
    But still I won't let
    Sorrow get me way down
    [ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/c/c...christmas.html ]
    Hey, maybe I'll learn to sew
    Maybe I'll just lie low
    Maybe I'll hit the bars
    Maybe I'll count the stars until dawn
    Me, I will go on

    Maybe I'll settle down
    Maybe I'll just leave town
    Maybe I'll have some fun
    Maybe I'll meet someone
    And make him mine
    Me, I'll be just

    Fine and dandy
    Lord it's like a hard candy christmas
    I'm barely getting through tomorrow
    But still I won't let
    Sorrow bring me way down

    I'll be fine and dandy
    Lord it's like a hard candy christmas
    I'm barely getting through tomorrow
    But still I won't let
    Sorrow bring me way down

    I'll be fine and dandy
    Lord it's like a hard candy christmas
    I'm barely getting through tomorrow
    But still I won't let
    Sorrow bring me way down

    'Cause I'll be fine
    (I'll be fine)
    Oh, I'll be fine

    Yup, my 20# bird isn't as thawed as I would like...but don't let it out on the counter. That's a good way to get sick. Stick it in the sink in a cold water bath...check out the Butterball site. They will give you all the info.

    Happy Tails and Blondeslave....we are just glad that you are here and making comments...it's hard to be newbies...we have all been there.
    As you can see, most of us just like to tease Dreamer....cuz she's such a good sport and so naughty most of the time...

    Wow I had a long day at work yesterday and this morning have almost 10 pages of comments to catch up on.

    I checked my SS tracking number and the package is about half way there. I shipped on the 15th and was told it should be delivered next week. I had to go with the lower cost shipping option, or send fewer goodies. I thought more goodies was better as long as it gets there in time.

    For those in the naughty corner, how about some Blueberry Tea? A lovely cup of Earl Grey tea, with Amaretto and Grand Marnier. Add a cinnamon stick and orange twist. Yum, especially in front of the fire.

    I got home from work and DH had decorated the fireplace and mantle. It looks lovely.

    I hope all those in the US enjoy your Thanksgiving Dinner, Football and Black Friday.

    Boy! I should be writing down all these drink ideas. Who ever thought of Earl Grey tea with booze in it? May have to try that one.

    I am watching for the mail lady, with baited breath. Surely, I should be getting a package soon. I won't put up my little sewing tree till the package comes. And Friday the Christmas CDs go in the player and I will be singing from then till Christmas. Can't wait to get the Cyndi Lauper Christmas Music out.

    Wish I knew if mine had - particularly as it can't be tracked.

    Mine is still frozen. Mom usually is the turkey purchaser, but she was visiting the cousins in Cali so Dad bought it. She usually buys about a 16 lb bird - he bought a 21 pounder. If I had known that, i'd have taken it out earlier. I didn't realize how expensive turkeys had gotten. Wow. Looked at the price tag and just about had an attack. Going to have to figure out how to use every scrap out of that bird!

    I received a box yesterday. My husband knew I was waiting for it and didn't tell me it came so I wouldn't stress over it. Boooooooooo!!!!

    And my November Secret Pal was on my chair this morning when I came in to work. I'm a happy girl!!

    Happy Thanksgiving all!
