    In Pnin, on p. 57, Eliza Wind tells her ex-husband Pnin " you know Timofey, this brown suit of yours is a mistake; a gentleman does not wear brown."

    I'm happy this year's turkey was finished off with out having to throw 1/4-1/2 of it away.... I just kept on making sandwiches (two versions one with mayo and honey mustard, and the other with cranberry sauce) and giving them out to people, neighbors co-workers, and friends... usually its ironically hard giving out sandwiches even to people that are hungry, but this year people snapped them up and even asked if I had extras.

    Also the wife just left for Chicago this morning... so I've got some alone time to do some chores around the house that I normally wouldn't do at night time.

    There is no such thing as leftovers in my family.

    I don't call them leftovers. I call them meals I haven't eaten yet.

    It has been about half a decade since I had a proper post-Thanksgiving turkey sandwich.

    :(

    It has been about two decades since I had a proper Thanksgiving turkey.

    :(

    I have great homemade north Indian food every Thanksgiving, but no turkey.

    This is nonsense. I do believe Mythbusters debunked this.

    It worked on my wife... she was half a sammy in and was out cold... I was about to pounce but already had a sammy earlier... we both woke up naked and the dog looked suspiciously guilty.

    My mom always cooks too much.

    Never have to buy sandwiches for lunch.
