flist friday: thanksgiving  
Hello Flist!

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day, a day not all of us celebrate, but we all know about, thanks to, yes, TV shows (that's where I've learnt basically all I know about America, and I hope it will be enough for when I'll have to go through my Naturalization Process LOL, kidding, I'll study for that...).

Even if not all of us sat down eating turkey (or meat substitutes), mashed potatoes and pumpkin pies, there's one thing we all do toward the end of the year... We look at the year that just passed, and think about what are we thankful of... so:


- What are you thankful for?
- What is the best thing that happened to you this year?
- (For the US friends) What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
- (For the non US friends) If you were to celebrate Thanksgiving with your family, what do you think it would happen?
- Some american shows do Thanksgiving episodes... What is your favorite one? What's the best scene?

This has been a pretty insane year for the World: we lost great artists such as Alan Rickman and David Bowie, the US Presidential Election happened, Britain left the UE, the Zika Virus, Hurricane Matthew, The Heartquake in Italy, the attacks in France and Bruxelles,... I'm sure we're ready to put this year behind us, but I'm sure there's something to be thankful for...

The Juno spacecraft reached Jupiter. Tiger and Panda numbers are growing. Volunteers in India planted 50 million trees in 24 hours. LEONARDO DICAPRIO WON AN OSCAR! There’s a new Harry Potter book and a new Harry Potter Movie. Gilmore Girls is Back! Basically all that is Netflix is so good it hurts! Huge steps were made in the medicine world on fighting cancer and alzheimer. All the new memes, all the new books, all the amazing movies that came and are coming out,... I can go on, because I refuse to stop at the bad stuff!

- What are you thankful for?
On a personal level, I'm thankful for my family. I'm glad they're all okay and happy. I'm thankful for my husband, who's the best human being on the planet and I snatched him. I'm grateful for my friends, even if they had some bad days, weeks, months they're still fighting and doing great all considered. I'm thankful for everything I have, and for not taking anything for granted. Also David Tennant's face... I'm always thankful for that!


- What is the best thing that happened to you this year?
The best thing that happened is that I decided to quit my job and I did it! I'm still recovering from the damage it made, but I'm getting better!!! It was a huge thing for me!

- (For the US friends) What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
I only spent one thanksgiving with my american family and it wasn't as I expected... Being italian I was expecting WAY MORE FOOD (LOL) and some drama, but it was a pretty chilled evening. I can't wait to be able to create a Thanksgiving Tradition with Eric... I only know it won't have a Turkey in it, because Eric is vegetarian and I don't like to cook animals...

- (For the non US friends) If you were to celebrate Thanksgiving with your family, what do you think it would happen?
I imagine it to be a lot like Christmas minus the presents. My dad would cook so much food to feed a village, and we'll all eat it... I can't imagine my dad cooking a turkey though... He would probably change the rules and make something else (I know him xD), but yes, it would be all about being together and eat xD

- Some american shows do Thanksgiving episodes... What is your favorite one? What's the best scene?
Friends! Friends had the best Thanksgiving episodes! HIMYM had some pretty good ones too but I still can't forgive them for what they did with the finale! The best Friends Thanksgiving episode is “The One With All The Thanksgivings” (Season 5). When they all look back at their worst thanksgivings... I love flashback episodes and I loved the whole situation with Monica nad Chandler being together in secret and seeing flashbacks of her having a crush on him... The best scene is (since I'm a die hard shipper) Monica goes to Chandler and dances with her head in the turkey, and he says to her he loves her (and than takes it back because it's too soon... just ot say it again a couple of episodes later)! I love that episode!!!

Have a happy Black Friday (that's something I definitely want to try LOL)!!! :D I have Eric doing some book shopping for me in Florida! Fingers crossed!!! :D

- What are you thankful for?
My son and my parents, always!

- What is the best thing that happened to you this year?
Going to TAFE!

- (For the non US friends) If you were to celebrate Thanksgiving with your family, what do you think it would happen?
My mum would cook the best meal, we'd all eat with my siblings (minus one of my brothers) and then my siblings would leave as soon as they'd eaten leaving the rest of us to do the dishes lol

- Some american shows do Thanksgiving episodes... What is your favorite one? What's the best scene?
I can only recall the Friends episodes, like the scene you used in this post and the other post. I think my favourite part was when Rachel made that gross trifle that tasted like feet and Joey thought it was delicious haha

Ery-chanerychan86 on November 26th, 2016 01:01 pm (UTC)
Awww kids <3

LOL sounds like Christmas at my place xD

Have you ever seen the bloopers about that episode? When ross says "it tastes like feet" and everyone starts laughing xD Oh so funny!!!
Jesscrinkle on November 28th, 2016 08:38 am (UTC)
Noo! I haven't! I must see if I can find them haha

- What are you thankful for?
My family, my dogs, my friends, and my home are the most important things I'm thankful for.

- What is the best thing that happened to you this year?
I can't pick just one! Passing my certification exam, vacation to Las Vegas for my sister's 21st, seeing my favorite band in concert twice, and I'm sure my upcoming trip to Disney will make the list, too. :D

- (For the US friends) What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
Just spending time with my family, eating delicious food, and watching football.

- Some american shows do Thanksgiving episodes... What is your favorite one? What's the best scene?
I agree with you, Friends has the best Thanksgiving episodes! I loved the one with Brad Pitt. That one was hilarious!

- What are you thankful for?
My dogs, my cat, my family, my friends, that I may finally be about to start working on my house (assuming we figure out the loans), coffee, and being employed & healthy.

- What is the best thing that happened to you this year?
Probably either the DC trip with the girls or the Rockville music festival w/ my friend

- (For the US friends) What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
The food.

- Some american shows do Thanksgiving episodes... What is your favorite one? What's the best scene?
I'd say all of the Friends Thanksgiving episodes. Also, thanks to my parents I watch some older tv shows to, so I'll add the WKRP Thanksgiving episode.

Glad you quitting your job ended up being a blessing. :)

Hope you had a lovely thanksgiving.
Ery-chanerychan86 on December 1st, 2016 08:26 pm (UTC)
Coffee is a great thing to be grateful about!

Quitting my job was THE BEST decision ever! I feel so much better now! And now that I'm working (to stay busy and missing Eric less) on this store for a month I am getting better... The fear of being mistreated and all the crap seems to be gone, and I feel like I can do it! That job broke me! I loved the owners, they were fantastic, but my direct superior made my life a living hell!
