Put The Giving In T-giving

Thanksgiving. The best holiday ever: football, parades and unnecessary amounts of over eating. Top that off with a bit of booze and an afternoon nap, and you have yourself the perfect weekend. Well, almost.

Leave The Leftovers

Thanksgiving is awesome. There’s nothing quite like watching the big game with your family, drinking until you fall over and spending the day eating nonstop. However, having the whole family over to enjoy some turkey usually takes three days of cleaning, two days of cooking and then at least one solid day of recovery.

Speed To Lo Spiedo

Taking a vacation is awesome, except for that whole packing, getting to the airport two hours early to stand in the security line before getting on a plane where a baby will inevitably scream at the top of its lungs the whole time, part. Sometimes that alone is enough to make you never want to leave Philly again.

The Sleep Walking Dead

The sound of an alarm clock is probably one of the worst sounds in the world. Seriously, there’s not much worse than being pulled out of a sound slumber, well except for maybe finding out that your girlfriend is cheating on you with your brother (ouch, sorry pal).
