By the way, are you watching the live version with Carrie Underwood on Thursday? I drive by the set every day (it’s outside!) but I just don’t know if I can stray from the original…  [edited to add: I was wrong on the location, it's being filmed in NY!]

Ok, yeah, I’m totally watching it.

I’m back for more Thanksgiving chat. But this time around it’s all about leftovers. How do you feel about them? Love them? Too soon to talk about them?

primizie snack crisps. OMG. I don’t ever want to buy these again. They are so good and I can’t stop eating them. (Updated to add: I’ve bought them numerous times.) The whole look and feel of this brand is just…I love it. Not to mention they’re addicting-ly tasty. dunkin donut k-cups. Ok so I hate
