Thanksgiving — TPL Break — Fuzzy Umps

So, greetings to one and all!

Here’s the thing: Thanksgiving is this week.


You didn’t know the pilgrim ladies gave the indian chaps cherry cookies, did you?

Now, since Thanksgiving is this week, TPL will be off. For the week, that is.

But I must wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, just for kicks, giggles, and gurgles.

Also, here’s the turkey.


I will ship it to you, if you’re interesting in having it. You just have to pay for the shipping.

See, the professor isn’t fond of the turkey; and the turkey isn’t fond of the professor.

This turkey is most definitely a gentleman.

One last thing I shall leave you with:

Science has proven that the feeling you get after the Thanksgiving feast is quite normal, however, it’s also quite dangerous.

They’ve even come up with a scientific title for it. It’s called: Fuzzy Umps.

In a sentence: “I’m so stuffed, and feeling only so great. I definitely have the Fuzzy Umps.”

Anyways, take care, happy Thanksgiving! Love you, guys. See you next week.

    So, here’s the thing, Professor: it appears you have forgotten something. Namely, that any week that includes November 4 does not also include any date that comes after November 11.

    Hi Professor,

    I wish you a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving! I hope there are no scary adventures during this time, just a lot of eating.

    See you in a week my friend. :)

    I hope no one eats that one on the sidewalk. He looks like he’s seen a thing or two in his day. Be a shame not to hear about them.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, professor! And thanks for that beautiful gentleman turkey photo. Is that a real turkey?!?

    The turkey that you’ll ship at a cost… is it my eyes playing games with me or is a bit hollow? Can’t get stuffed (as in turkey :-) with that one.

    Happy Giggles & Gobble Gobble to you Prof!!!

    Aw, gee, Professor, have a Happy Thanksgiving yourself! I know that Fuzzy Umps feeling and welcome it. I’m sorry you don’t enjoy turkey, but it’s actually quite good for you ( I thought about taking a little break myself, but I’ll just hold down the fort a bit longer. Enjoy your week off and we’ll see you soon. By the way, I’m glad to read you found that heart you lost — must’ve been on the plate of cherry cookies, right?!!

    OMG! (And I don’t use that lightly because it’s quite awful.) The Professor got mushy! I love it!! I just knew you were adorable. Sorry. I’ll stop. Happy Thanksgiving, Professor! I’m definitely using Fuzzy Umps. I’m glad you finally put a name to my affliction after over-eating. It will replace Turkey Coma as much jazzier, more academic, substitute. I’ll be offline as well so I’m happy to know I wouldn’t miss anything. I hate to miss a party, you know. xx
