Giving Thanks, 007 & Karaoke

Ok, I’m not the happy holiday type gal.    It’s just not in my nature to get into the giddie-ness of the season.

I think it’s all over commercialized and truly just a big bunch of money-makin crap.

That said, as I try to make my rounds to the blogs I stalk on a regular basis… there are some of them that have listed things that they are thankful for.

So, regardless of my disdain for the holiday season as a whole, I’ve really had no choice but to reflect on things that I have to be thankful for.

And heeeere we go.

Family. I have 2 kids, Big T has 2 kids…. that equals 4, plus one grandbaby.  It’s taken me well over a year to adjust to having the new additions to my life, and it’s not been all that easy on my children either… but somehow we’ve made it work.

Friends. Without them, life would be obnoxiously boring.  Hollyrock and Mario are my best friends in the world and I love them with all of my little heart.

James Bond. Without the James Bond marathon and football (BTW the VOLS blow) Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same.  I’ve watched the Bond-a-thon on Turkey day with my Dad since I was a kid.  And I don’t give a rat’s ass what anybody says, Roger Moore is, in fact, the best Bond.

Most excellent Bond flicks, in no particular order….

Live and Let Die, View to A Kill, Diamonds Are Forever, You Only Live Twice, Goldfinger….  and I gots ’em all on VHS cuz I’m all hi-tech and shit.

Karaoke. Oh yah, Babe.

There’s nothing that entertains me more than a night out drinkin and singin some ridiculously cheesy songs.  Nothing.

Piss on a bunch of American Idol.  They’re all just glorified karaoke singers.  And Simon is an evil troll…

I’m so sucked in by listening to myself make all kinds of noise that Big T went and bought me a super-deee-dooper system for the house.  Complete with my very own Diva microphone stand.

It’s not that I’m all that good… til I’ve had a few beers and then a few more beers… then I’m damn good.  Heh.

I thankful for lots of stuff.  I really am.   But to list them would take too long, so I covered the highlights.

I know you people have Turkey to eat and football to watch!

So, take it easy.  Save some food for tomorrow and do it all over again.

Love to all y’all and yours.

  1. Ohhhh, I want my own karaoke system! Of course, one of my best friends is a karaoke hostess, so I can get off cheap if I ever really need one, but it would be hella cool to blast the tunes here at home.

  2. Great list! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I’m with you on “The holidays are a commercial crock of shit”

    Thanksgiving is just an excuse to pig out on awesome chow drink LOTS of BEER & watch FOOTBALL…so I’m good with that one. 🙂

    Oh alright I’m thankful for Jesse, my family & friends & of course my internet F&F. Happy T-Day darlin

    But Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ not that the wise men gave him gifts. Thats all I have to say about that.

  4. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is my favorite of the Bond movies. They’re all great though.

    Casino Royale with Daniel Craig as Bond rocked too!

    Have a great Thanksgiving!!

  5. I LOVED this post!!!

    I feel the same way around holidays.

    Lvin’ the karaoke pics!!!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Thanks for sharing… Happy Turkey Day!

    just bob

  7. Karaoke really is a lot of fun. That’s great to have your own setup!

    The Vols beat Vandy, so the season’s not a total loss.

  8. Shit, I am such a family man I can’t stand myself, but hey I am content. I believe in the season but I’m not sold on the comercialization of it all.

    Bond, Jose bond… I take my mezcal with a worm and you can stir it or shake it dear, I really don’t give a damn. Yep, my first Bond movie was “The Man With The Golden Gun” so to me Roger Moore rocks, this last blond Bond just doesn’t cut it for me. But if you must know who my favorite is… drum roll… Well, it’s the Bond girls of course all of them.

    So, my sister from California is coming for Thanksgiving and we will all go to Manny’s on Friday for a big karaoke showdown. Songs planned for the night amogst others are, “You gonna miss this”, “Believe”, and for mi chica I’ll probably sing “Lady”, and probably a few in Spanish. Wish you were here to party with us.

    Happy Thanksgiving your divaness.

  9. Happy Thanksgiving! I’m up in Portland right now with friends as my daughter is with the ex but I guess I am still thankful that I am no longer married to him. Ah, look, see how I found that silver lining right there? Not bad huh? 😉

  10. Are the Vols going to hire Kiffin?

  11. Happy T-day Cat.

    I think the Vols should go after Brian Kelly from Cincinnati. He’s a young guy and an AWESOME Coach.
    It just ain’t right seeing the Vols hurting. They’re a top program in this Country and ALL of us enjoy seeing them competitive.

  12. Hey, thanks for reminding me to catch some bond!

    Maybe I’ll sing along to the gold finger theme song in your honor.

  13. Happy Thanksgiving from Mexico!

  14. I love karaoke too. Happy Thanksgiving, Cat!

  15. Happy Day After Thanksgiving….ugh.

  16. Sweet list.

    til I’ve had a few beers and then a few more beers… then I’m damn good.

    Of course. Heh.

    Hope you had a great day, chickie. Wish I could have had you over for dinner. 🙂

  17. Looking GOOD at the Karoake deck!

    … I still want to sing with you someday 😉
