Isn't cider a hot drink as well though? Idk, that's the only way I think I've ever had it. Like hot chocolate, but with apple juice.
That's the only kind of cider I've had, but I'm pretty sure that other parts of the world use cider to refer to an alcoholic drink.

I love cider, both non-alcoholic and alcoholic. It's one of my favorite drinks ever. I love going to apple orchards and getting the ciders straight from them, like Apple Hill here in Cali. Only one thing beats fresh, cold and raw cider.

Also, I hope everyone is having an awesome and wonderful day today :)

My Thanksgiving has been decent, working for the first part of it does at least get me some bank and not having to work for my family. But I can't say I am liking having to put up with these new children...

As for cider, apple cider is something I have liked before, even though it's not a drink I end up having a lot.

Thanksgiving was amazing. Truly bliss, as it always is. I ate so much food, I think I set a new personal record lol. Out of everything I ate, turkey with stuffing was the best. That delicious meat combined with the flavor of the stuffing. Mmm, can't beat it. Then I had tons to drink as well. Overall, truly amazing day. Satisfied my expectations and then some <3

I'll be celebrating Thanksgiving with my family tomorrow evening, but I did have a nice day today playing games with Ravey, so I'd still call it a good day. C:

I had a good Thanksgiving, especially in the early morning and the evening (I played games with Christy in the latter time)! I didn't really cook anything and I wasn't with my family because I'd have had to fly home for a couple of days and was assuming I'd have gotten a ton of homework anyway. This was the first year I wasn't at my mom's house for Thanksgiving but it was still enjoyable :happyazurill:

Somehow this doesn't surprise me.

I'm happy to be able to say that I had a very enjoyable Thanksgiving as well. My mom always like to cook a big meal no matter how many people will be participating, and this year my family shared it with my uncle and his girlfriend. Afterwards we watched a couple football games on TV and played cards. Good times.

"watched a couple football games on TV" <-- Hope you weren't rooting for the Redskins, haha.

Anyway, just got back from some Black Friday mayhem. Was in the mall for like two hours and I will say it's interesting seeing all the deals that the stores have to offer, I mostly just bought some clothes, some T-shirts and other warm clothes to prepare for what's ahead. But having to make your way through the crowds and long lines isn't fun. Dx

That's why you do all your Black Friday shopping online if at all possible. That way you can avoid all the crowds and the lines.

My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the stuffing tbh.

I agree with Kilza, Black Friday is definitely a time where you should try to shop online, if possible, or be super careful. I've never been to a store specifically for Black Friday, but last year (or maybe 2 idk) I was at a strip mall with a Best Buy and it looked like chaos in and out there. There definitely are deals that are worth it though, so if you're being careful it can be a good time to go shopping.

Better them than the Cowboys, not that it mattered.

It's been raining all day here. The forecast said freezing rain, but it hasn't been quite that cold, so at least we escaped that menace. Tomorrow around lunchtime I'll be heading back to the airport to return for my last couple weeks of the semester.

I was momentarily confused because it isn’t cold or rainy here at all then I remembered you’re visiting your family right now haha

It's been around 0 C/32 F here the past few days, which is nice. No rain or snow to speak of.

No, I'm so jealous of Texas right now. Y'all's Texan attitude has infected me and I want to be back. Virginia weather, for the most part, sucks.

I do hope you all are able to keep up with the "Page *blank* that is pretty cool" for every page as long as TSI lives.

@Typhlosion Heh, given the standings in our division at the moment, we needed the Cowboys to win for statistical purposes. If we win against the Giants tomorrow we'll be tied with them. And it was raining the later part of today, too, but in a usually warm state like Texas that wouldn't be much of a surprise.

@Lazuli Wonder if that really will happen. A massive posting spree would have to happen for it not to!

Regarding the online vs in-store topic, while I was in the mall yesterday, I read a board talking about the disadvantages of ordering online, including more packaging and more gas emission to get it delivered compared to driving in your car and being able to get your products easily. I don't have exactly what it said but I'm sure it's still there.

So tonight we had a party for multiple things going on - my sister's children being here, my nana turning 95 today, and my brother and his spouse's engagement, that was a thing too. We had some of our relatives over for it, which was nice. But we've got a lot of food and drinks to fridge, not looking forward to that. x_x And I will indeed be going to tomorrow's Eagles game, because my dad can't find anyone else who would go with us. If we can't beat the Giants then we're definitely screwed.
