Good morning! Welcome to your first edition of MORNING CHEER! The dog (my parents' dog) and I are the only ones up, and he's gazing at me adoringly, which is nice, but he's kind of stinky. Anyway! You need a morning song! I promise I won't use Glee music every day, but we've been decorating my parents' house, and I love their version of "Deck the Halls" . . .
A few Thanksgiving-specific links I didn't manage to post before Thanksgiving:
Where to Buy Last-Minute Thanksgiving Pie in New York
What all the food magazines are pushing this year.
The women of Slate on mothers and holiday cooking traditions. (Warning: This made me cry.)
I know I already recommended this Awl series in general, but this apple pie recipe reads like some sort of cross of Spencer Ackerman and Jay McInerney, and it's completely hilarious and now I want to make pie. (The pie crust article it links to is pretty great too.)
Backstage at the Macy's Parade
These were written for Thanksgiving but will work for the whole month of holiday events to come. Want to win all the arguments at the holiday dinner tables?
Slate and Foreign Policy have you covered.
The early, out-of-print novels of Rafael Yglesias are now available as ebooks.
Looking for a movie to see with family or friends over the holidays?
TWoP has you covered.
Annie Lowrey visits the offices of one of the companies that makes those airport scanners everyone's talking about.
Which books are Penguin authors giving and hoping to get this year?
I liked the
Avalon High movie better than the folks at Forever Young Adult did, but their take on it is hilarious regardless.
Not quite feeling the holiday spirit?
This is for you.
