Three Things Thursday

So, back to a regularly scheduled Thursday, which is not nearly as much fun as a food-gasm Thursday, which is what last week was. I guess every day can't be a holiday. Sigh.

1. In a desperate attempt to eat something for lunch other than a bag of Kettle Chips and a Pepsi, I nabbed some Hormel Natural Choice smoked turkey (yes, I am well aware I should be over turkey, but I'm not. Deal.) I'm not a huge fan of lunch meat, but this was pretty good. Of course, when my gluten-free teff wrap fell apart, it left me eating rolled up slices of turkey with my hands in my tiny work breakroom. Still tasty.

2. Next week is the big date with University of Chicago. I will be seeing one of the celiac specialists there, as well as a nutritionist. Which means my days of Reese's Cups are probably behind me. Maybe not a bad thing, as I am running out of pants that fit? Whoever said going gluten-free makes you skinny ... obviously didn't realize the extent of Hershey's gluten-free offerings.

3. If you are a fellow gluten-free blogger, check out Marlow's Gluten-Free Blogger Secret Santa. She's still taking names for a few more days, and it sounds like it will be a blast.

3.5. Unrelated to any of this, Luke and I are starting our annual undertaking of watching a Christmas movie or TV special every day in December. We have our list pretty much set, but does anyone have any great, must-see suggestions? Bear in mind that our favorites include A Very Brady Christmas, Saved By the Bell Christmas and Die Hard (both one and two).


  1. I signed up for Marlow's Secret Santa Blogger fun times too! Woo hoo!

    Also, #3.5! I love it! We watched the Saved by the Bell Christmas special last weekend and were laughing our asses off. I remember back in the day it was so serious and heartwarming. Now it's just plain hilarious!

    I also LOVE the Colbert Christmas special. That's a must in our house along with Home Alone (1 & 2), National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, White Christmas, Sleepless in Seattle & You Got Mail, Elf, and soooo many more! Share your list! I'd love to see what I'm missing!

    1. We'll also be doing Christmas Vacation, Elf, White Christmas & Home Alone. I forgot about Colbert!
      We're also planning for Scrooged, Miracle on 34th Street (the original), Muppet Christmas Carol, and all of the Rankin/Bass classics (Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rudolph, Frosty, etc.). We'll probably watch Christmas Vacation like a dozen times, because it cracks me up without fail.
