That dreaded day of possibly-dysfunctional family togetherness, interminable and expensive travel, the shameless three-hour commercial that is the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Roman Empire-level gorging, drunkenness, and football looms again, dear Vaulties. You will survive, hey hey. And to those of you who grew up in the Tri-State area, don't forget to dust off your DVD copies of KING KONG — original version only — SON OF KONG, and MIGHTY JOE YOUNG, plus a classic-era Godzilla movie of choice. You know why. If I may recommend the Godzilla flick, I'd go with GODZILLA VERSUS MOTHRA (which went by GODZILLA VERSUS THE THING when we were kids) or GODZILLA VERSUS THE SEA MONSTER. And if you have the MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 version of that last one, so much the better.

Maddie and I sat down to watch our "Memories of Channel 9 Thanksgiving Marathon."

She wasn't interested in the original KING KONG (I know--sacrilege!) but we made it through KING KONG VS. GODZILLA.

We then started KING KONG ESCAPES, but I just wasn't feeling it this time around, and Maddie wasn't too interested either.

So we watched two episodes of THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN.

Oh well, I tried!
