TVM -- holiday movies and other (fun) stuff and CARDS!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

I am thankful I can sing. I love to sing!! Unfortunately I cannot carry a tune in a bucket, but that doesn't stop me, I sing anyway.

My hubby bought me a sweatshirt that said on the back:

If God gives you a beautiful voice: Sing loudly and give thanks
If God gives you a bad voice: Sing loudly and get revenge :twisted:


So I'm thankful..thankful that I have a song in my heart, even if no one really wants to hear it :D

LK don't forget us torcers :hug:

LK :hug: You have us! And kitties, yes?

I don't have much in the way of family but I'm grateful for my hubby & daughter.

I used to be able to sing then one year I got a horrible cold with a really bad cough and my voice has never quite been the same. Maybe others are grateful for that? :D

Ninui, I hear ya about some of those dances getting harder as we age! One of my favorite things about the folk dancing I do is that it can be done by people of all ages and (almost) all levels of ability. It is indeed great exercise, and I'm thankful that I can do it!

Witchy, I like that tshirt! :lol:

LK, I am thankful for you :hug: And all the rest of TORC :grouphug:

Hi everybody! Sorry I've been absent for a couple of days - there was just a lot of stuff going on, between family reunions and funeral arrangements. But it's okay now: the funeral was on Monday, and everything went well - there was some drama, as there always is when my family gets together, but it didn't get out of hand. As of right now, everyone is relatively calm: that is, until Thanksgiving, when we're supposed to get together again - my sister is coming over from England and we're going to meet her baby son for the first time. I'm a little nervous that there might be some trouble: my sister is very reserved and protective, whereas my aunts have no boundaries whatsoever - they've clashed before on multiple occasions, but this one is going to be more stressful than usual. There's already a undercurrent of tension about who's going to be allowed to hold the baby.

:lol: I'm the latter, unfortunately. I love to sing, even though I know I'm not particularly good at it. But then again, maybe I should try singing something a little easier than "May It Be" by Enya, and see how that goes.

Ahhh Thor..family can be a crazy mixture. All I can say, in the way of advise,it to sit back and enjoy the show. You don't have to be a part of the craziness and can even learn to enjoy the drama if you step outside the crazy zone and observe. Life, death, drama, anger and hopefully a big under current of love permeates most families, hold on to the love part and step away from the drama and anger, you might find it a lot more bearable. I'm sorry about the funeral and the loss you have recently had to go through, it's never easy to say goodbye to someone in this life...I watched my own beloved mom wither away and die when I was in my early 20's..it shaped who I was to become, hopefully for the better...hang in there, try to enjoy this ride we call life even when relatives and holidays collide :hug:

This Thanksgiving, we are all going to the Persian Restaurant in Minneapolis to eat around 2pm..no dishes!!!! Then we'll come home and have some pies and snack foods for the rest of the day. We have done this for the past 3 Thanksgiving and it certainly has lightened the load for the Holiday Season.

Thor-n, Am so glad things are getting better for you and your family. And I'd recommend Witchwench's advice. Sit back and watch the entertainment. Bound to get a giggle or two.
Stay happy and well my friend. And have a fantastic Thanksgiving !

I saw a lot of Sesame Street, but never really watched the Muppets outside their brief appearances on Sesame Street. I do love Mahna Mahna, though. :rofl:

Thor, I hope the family drama is less severe at Thanksgiving than you anticipate. I usually bring a book to uncomfortable social gatherings and retreat with it to a corner whenever possible.

Witchy, Making a tradition out of the Persian restaurant sounds like a great idea, keeping the cooking and cleaning to a minimum while you all celebrate.

Love it! :thumbsup:

Going out for Thanksgiving dinner sound like a great idea. Then just lazing around the rest of the day eating desserts and snacks----oh yeah! I could get into that. :D

Thor'n---good to see you back. Try not to stress about the holidays. As Melwa said, just take a good book (or three) and hide in a corner if things get to crazy.

I always liked the Muppets. Animal was one of my favorites.

Yep, that's probably the best idea: family can definitely be crazy, but it all has a way of figuring itself out - even if there are some unforeseen bumps on the road. Thank you for the words of wisdom, and I hope your own Thanksgiving get-together is a really happy one! Sounds nice! For the reunion, my sister is renting out a house somewhere near where I live (though she won't say where exactly), and we're all going to have to trek up there: I think it's somewhere rural. As much as I want to spend time with family, I hope it doesn't snow heavily while we're there, trapping us in the house together for more than the two days we're supposed to spend there. :D

Sorry I've been away. Took my mum on a short cruise (and got way from the bushfire smoke) and went down south for a couple of days. We put into port in a place called Eden where they make excellent jam. My mum came home with 4 jars. Dad is very happy. Not sure I got as much rest as I'd like as work is back to crazy levels again.

But I am thankful for short breaks...and jam...and mums.

Witchie....I took always have a tune in my heart and on my mind. I used to sing in bands....for decades actually and now my voice is too rough and sung out to do much with it but warble at our family get-to-gathers. When I was young I always sang loudly to the radio and my brother would say one of two things...."sing by the window and I'll help you out" or "I used to wish I could sing, now I wish you could". LOL....funny because he begs me to sing now. Kid brothers....amirite????

I went to the doctors today, more on the HELLO for that....and had a ton of blood letting done. I go back on the 5th and they are changing one med. *shrugs* I just want to feel better.

See ya soon...work tomorrow if I can take a full shift.

Toodles....

*grabs Tooks credit card and orders Chinese delivery for the group* Save the Mu Shu Pork for me please.
Love is as big or as little as a hug!!
