Central BBQ is selling smoked turkeys for Thanksgiving. They are $39.99 and are 12-14 pounds. Last day to order is November 22. I’ve previously posted that Lunchbox Eats and Flying Fish are also selling turkeys.

If you were a U.S. poker player on Full Tilt Poker and the site owes you money, you have until tomorrow to file a claim.

I had a good time at the Blind Bear last night listening to Charvey McLemore. The Nuh-Uh Girl was there and as usual, she went around seeing what everyone was having to eat. Here are a couple of pics:

Wrapping things up at work in preparation for a three-day weekend. I decided that Monday in a cubicle was not really the way I wanted to spend my birthday, so I put in for a vacation day. Right now, it’s time to hit Publish and head to Target, where I’ve discovered that they sell bacon jerky. That would make a great late-night snack so I’ll be bringing several bags home today.
