Sunday Steal...

1. Are You Celebrating Thanksgiving At Home Or Elsewhere This Year? With Whom Will You Spend Thanksgiving Day?
Justin and I will be celebrating Thanksgiving at my parents' house this    

2. What Do You Have For Breakfast On Thanksgiving?
Same thing I have every other day of the year. Tea or coffee.

3. Do You Go To A Thanksgiving Parade Or Watch One On TV?
Neither. I watch The Godfather (1972) all day long.

4. Do You Serve Appetizers, Lunch Or Snacks During The Day?
My mom typically has big bowls of fruit and nuts out and we pick on other random things.

5. What Do You Wear On Thanksgiving? 
Comfy clothing. It's normally just my parents, sister and I so we try to be comfy but with makeup on because my sister and I love Instagram.

6. What's Your Thanksgiving Table Like -- Do You Use Special Plates/Silver/Glasses, etc? Do You Have A Centerpiece? A Color Scheme? Candles?   
My mom might throw a tablecloth on the table but that's really it. Like I said, it's typically just the four of us.

7. Do You Serve Buffet-Style Or Family-Style? What Do You Have To Drink? 
Family style.

8. Once You're At The Table, Do You Say Grace Or A Toast Or Does Everyone Go Around And Say What They're Thankful For?    
None of those things. 

9. Do You Have Dessert Right After The Main Meal Or Later On?   
Later on. We digest a little and then go to town on dessert.

10. What Do You Do With Your Leftovers?
My mom makes stuff with it, like turkey pot pie. I'm honestly not a huge fan of the Thanksgiving menus because I don't eat turkey, etc.

Stuck In My Head: I Will Always Love You | Thanks Hello Geeky...

Thanks to the ladies over at the Hello Geeky podcast I've had Whitney Houston's version of "I Will Always Love You" from The Bodyguard (1992) soundtrack stuck in my head since last night.

I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston on Grooveshark

Fun Fact: At seven-years-old I sang "I Will Always Love You" in two talents shows and I absolutely LOVE The Bodyguard (1992) soundtrack.

For those of you interested in why I got it stuck in my head, here is their sixth podcast...

Smart Boards & Pancake Videos...

A couple of weeks ago my library got a Smart Board and my Director has been on me to use it in my programs. And the minute the man saw me today he was like "Are you using the Smart Board today?" and I just looked at him like he had five heads and informed him that I had a cooking program today.  He started with the "You can put on blah blah blah..." To which I responded "We are making pancakes..." and I walked away.

When I got into my department I told my Department Head and she was like "Can't you try to find something to show them, so he can tell the Board of Trustees that it's been used?" So I sighed and went over to my desk to search YouTube for pancake videos. The first one I found was amusing to me but the guy making pancakes started cursing three seconds into the video. Womp womp!

Then I saw a video on making pancake apes on the sidebar and oh my God, it was amazing. After finishing up that one I started watching his other videos and my mind has been blown. Look at this...

How amazing is this guy?!

I know at least one of you is sitting there going, what was the point of this whole post? Well, the point is I love my job when I get to do random things like search the internet for pancake videos. That's it.

Sorry/not sorry for being so random.
