I know the Tri-State is the center of the world
I'm always fascinated by subjective views from outside. What the stereotypical American accent is in other countries, etc. I've gone on a few rants about this before.

So what do you people in the rest of the country get on Thanksgiving for TV fare? I know you poor people far from the light and glory that is the Tri-State still watch the ball drop in Times Square if you're still EST, or see it an hour or so before your own celebration if you're further from grace. I understand that particular event doesn't translate out of the timezone well.

So we have a big parade in these parts. It's what just about everyone watches or has on the background Thanksgiving morning. I know you outsiders come from all over to visit it, I know people near the Tri-State often watch it. But you people across the continent, do you have it on your local NBC station? Does everyone/anyone/your dog watch it?

Feeling: groggy groggy

Yep. I'm in Vegas visiting my folks and the parade was televised. I think they tape delay it though.

Well, considering that it would otherwise end at ten in the morning, that makes sense. I can see doing that. I mean, it's not like it's a live call in show or telethon or some other time sensitive deal.

The NY parade was televised on two channels here. One of them had a Bob Hope tribute when I turned the tv on, the other had John Stamos singing in Central Park, so I gave up in disgust. I actually hadn't thought Stamos did anything nowadays aside from those phone commercials.

But then there was a dog show on, so I watched that. Puppies.....

Stamos does something else. Rebecca Romijn-Stamos. Seriously.

I read pieces all the time from people visiting movies, photo shoots, or other events with her. He's usually there, just hanging out, joking around with people. He doesn't work on his career, and just spends time enjoying hers.

I too watched the dog show, hence my later comment in my journal regarding dogs. The Australian sheep dogs were so cute.

Schenectady had its famous post-Thanksgiving parade this evening, in the rain and the cold Sch'Dy-yness. As soon as I got done with work I ran the hell away before that godforsaken human abyss could swallow me.

Also, people were putting up decorations today and I realised that I couldn't dis them anymore, because it's actually an appropriate time to do so. Grr.

Yeah, the post Thanksgiving decorations I forgive. The post Halloween decorations I worry about.

My only real beef with appropriately-timed Christmas decorations is that if I break my foot on someone's fuckin light-up candy cane during my innocent delivery duties, I get fired. That's how probation works, and probation for me lasts into January...when a lot of these wankers will still have lights up. Kill!

Already I've turned my ankle on a maverick can of hash that was rolling free from its Thanksgiving-food-drive-destined buddies.

damn right the Tri-State is the center.

I've decided that, since fate has out me here for a while, I might as well make Beacon my base of operations and big it up in the process. it's funny because if you replace Beacon with Earth it's still true.

But if you replace Beacon with Earth, you want to use the Presidio as your base of operations.
