It’s the silver anniversary of “Oprah’s Favorite Things” and it’s bigger than ever before!
In fact, it is so big, it’s in 2 parts.
Oprah started the show asking her audience if they meditate. A few people raised their hands… Oprah then went on to talk about the need to mediate in order to do nice things like give things away.

Saturday 9: Happy Turkey Day 2010
1. Tell us about you very favorite (yes we know that’s redundant) Thanksgiving.
I’ve answered this like 16 times today on various memes. So, this time, I’ll say, watching Oprah’s favorite things and then writing about them!
2. What are you doing for Turkey Day this year?
Reflecting on my parents- it would have been their 62nd anniversary.
3. If you were to go to somebody else’s house, what would be your favorite dish to bring?
4. Tell us about the funniest person that you’ll be with this Thanksgiving.
Depends what Willard Scott is doing I guess.
5. What would surprise us to know about your Thanksgivings?
We eat Turkey.
6. Does your usual mix of guests result in drama, or is it a group you’re happy to see?
You know, not everyone is celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday.
7. What did your family do for Thanksgiving when you were a kid? Do you still do it?
We’d meet at Charlie Brown’s house to help decorate the tree. Can you tell I’m done with Thanksgiving questions?
8. We know you’ve been asked this probably 15 times this week. But share with us in 2010, what are you most thankful for? Wasn’t this in Friday’s meme? I’m thankful that not every question from every meme is repeated.
9. Okay, the big question: are you going to ‘attend’ any of the “Black Friday” sales? …and if you are, are you hard core serious like the 5 am “be there” crowd?
Posh on a Budget is going to post (tomorrow) the Ultimate Guide to Black Friday. TONS of TIPS and DEALS!
