1. My tradition is watching "Home for the Holidays".

The perfect T'giving movie. Also it was filmed in the city where I grew up -- B'more. So, yes, I can relate.

Of course that was back when it wasn't easy for a kid in the sticks to own every obscure song much less have the ability to play it anywhere. Now I own the song and still play it on Thanksgiving to annoy my kids, but it's not the "rare" treat it was back then.

35. From the picture, that might inspire me to go back 30 years and jerk off again.

 

Sorry. That's just sort of freakish. I find most of that stuff to be "Barbie" unrealistic. The biggest problem I have with it is the imposition of unrealistic physical attributes on young women and girls. I've got three daughters, fortunately all self-confident, but even my wife who weighs all of 95 lbs wet thinks she's fat. Society has really fucked up the female self-image.

Yeah, I like naked chicks. I've been to strip bars (and my wife knows that by the way), and I like slender women like my wife, but the Photoshop "airbrush" jobs on the magazine covers (they all are) and the images like you just posted only serve to make women feel inferior.

Sorry for the rant, but I'm one of those guys who considers women to be equal to men. And if that's supposed to be an anime version of you, I've seen your pictures and you're way prettier than that. Just saying.

On Edit: Curiously, I actually knew "You're welcome". My wife and daughters are all black belts in Tang Soo Do.

63. Everybody pitches in to do evening barn chores so that's about 30 minutes of intense exercise

Then we have coffee and desserts while we play card games like Michigan Poker for a couple of hours.

For me though, its all of us pitching in together to take care of the animals that's my favorite part. Even my 80 year old mom helps - she loves to scoop grain and hear the whickering of the horses as their dinner arrives. Little ones get to throw hay down the hay drops and push brooms around (I don't care if it gets clean, its the exercise and the "doing it together" part that matters).

75. On the day after Thanksgiving ("Black Friday" to some), my family would always take a car ride.

We would skip the stores and drive out into the country, to see a historical site or nature park, and grab a good dinner to eat.

I plan on taking my daughters for a ride Friday as well, and skipping the malls.
