When I think about Thanksgiving, I think about family, and love, and all that stuff ... but mostly about the Thanksgiving food fight in Cheers...

For those of you who haven't seen it in awhile (or, god forbid, EVER) here it is in all its glory...

And my new favorite TV Thanksgiving tradition:
HAPPY SLAPS-GIVING! from Rich Shook on Vimeo.

May we all have a holiday filled with even half as much laughter. Happy Slapsgiving Food Fight Day.

The Most Beautiful Words You'll Read Today...

"When God had made The Man, he made him out of stuff that sung all the time and glittered all over. Some angels got jealous and chopped him into millions of pieces, but still he glittered and hummed. So they beat him down to nothing but sparks but each little spark had a shine and a song. So they covered each one over with mud. And the lonesomeness in the sparks make them hunt for one another."
— Zora Neale Hurston

Things I Found This Week

Here are some things that I found interesting and/or funny this week:

1. Here are some photos of New York in the dark. I truly never thought I would see the day. Some of these are hauntingly beautiful. Some are just haunting me.

2. This made me happy this week. It's a look back at our childhood style icons. Out of 22 icons,  I still find myself dressing the most like Punky. This should surprise no one.

3. I'm pretty sure there's never anything better than these photos of bad dogs being bad. My personal favorite is the little guy who barks at pants. Hey, sometimes pants suck.

4. How the times have changed. I remember being in New York City in 2008 when Obama won the first time. This is the blog post I wrote the next day. I found this pretty interesting, too. It's a video comparison of election day celebrations from 2008 and 2012, filmed on the same block in Williamsburg both times. New York has been badly bruised, but it will not break.

5. And, to end on a somewhat lighter note, doesn't Woody Allen always know just what to say?
