And now Tuesday's TV Tuesday.

1. What's your favorite thing you've watched in the past week?
CSI and Without a Trace were both excellent last Thursday. And Veronica Mars was great as well Tuesday. For that matter, so was Lost last night. Can I say everything?

2. Have you found anything new you liked? (You can use disliked or any other adjective you want.)

3. For those who had access to them, did you see any really cool parades on TV?

~Bonus~ Holiday dinner: TV on or off?

That was easy after the first one. :)

And, finally today's Thursday Threesome. This week, it's brought to us by weird animals and The Back Porch.

Onesome: Dancing-- Dancing? Does anyone go dancing anymore? I mean, disco died, and the club scene? Hmmm... Is dancing dead? ...or are we just here on the web instead of out for the evening?
I'd love to go dancing. I miss my ballroom dance days. If Master's ever changes their rules against dancing, then I'll start dancing again, trust me!

Twosome: Polar-- Polar bears seem to do well in the snow... How about you? Is snow just another thing you deal with when it shows up, or is it shutdown time? ...and if you're posting from a non-snowy locale, do you make trips to actually see snow? It's okay to admit it...
Considering I'm freezing to death in a 50 degree with strong wind climate, I think we know how well I'd do in snow. :) Often take a trip to see it, but usually with the youth.

Threesome: Bears-- Bears? Christmas Bears? Have you seen the number of bears on the shelf this year? Are you getting one for anyone? ...or are you looking forward to receiving one? ...or do you still think that inguana in the elf outfit is more your style ?
I'm really not into stuffed animals, period. And if I did, I don't know if I'd put out stuffed Christmas bears. My roommates would probably revolt. :)

I forgot last week's, didn't I? I'd better correct that. Two Thursday Threesomes for the price of one this week. :) Last's weeks was brought to us by the Salvation Army.

Onesome: Christmas-- Is it Thanksgiving? ...or just the day before the start of the "Christmas Season"? (...and how are you supposed to shop if you're all stuffed with food?) Hey, is anyone going out tomorrow to save tons of money standing in endless lines with 10,000 of your closest friends? Just curious...
I dont' think I've ever shopped on the day after Thanksgiving. And this year was no exception. And last Thursday was definitely Thanksgiving.

Twosome: Bells-- Okay, we'll give in and admit that maybe the season has started: what decorations are you looking forward to seeing in the next few days? ...the lights in the downtown? How about knowing you'll soon have a tree with that memorable ornament? The Toys for Tots drop off? What makes you comfortable knowing the Christmas season is really here?
Looking forward to digging out some of my favorite ornaments this weekend. But I also plan to head down to one very decorated part of town this year. The neighboorhood is amazing. Haven't been for several years, so hopefully it will hold up to memory.

Threesome: are Ringing-- your ears? What song are you just dreading to hear this season? Come on, the one that just makes you scrunch up inside and want to duck into an iron foundry so you can't hear it? Weird Al? Something from "The Nutcracker"? Those dogs? I mean come on, there's some bad stuff out there ...
I might hear a Christmas song I hate once or twice my the jr. highers. But for the most part, I can't think of anything I hear that I hate. I love too much Christmas music and concentrate on that.
