And if you like British humor, the IT Crowd is great! It's one of my faves.

As for the tv stuff, I love Scrubs! That and Psych are both good choices. Community has always been my favorite of the NBC sitcoms, followed by Parks and Rec. Some other good ones to look up are Fresh off the Boat, Brooklyn Nine Nine, or Bobs Burgers if you're looking for light and short.

Second Bob's Burgers, it's one of my favorite animated shows atm.

Which brings to mind Archer. Love that series, too.

Archer!! A guilty pleasure of mine. I need to watch the later seasons, I've only seen up to the point where they move.

Also beat someone on my ps4 golf game yday and he threatened to come to England and kill me (erm, only about 5000km out mate). Quite funny when I was laughing at him down the mic and he got more and more angry. First thing I did was google his play station name and the top result is his address, telephone number and email address from an estate agent website. Second thing I did was google mine and nothing came up.

What should I send him for Christmas?

The Thick of It is always good for a bit of British swearing.  As I love Armando Iannucci, I loved watching Veep.  I just finished the fifth series which was good, but the first four series are excellent.

Jonad!  The J Dog!



Actually, I'd go as far as to say that Jonah 'The Human Scaffolding', is one of my favourite characters in a long long while.

Going to a Korean friend's house on Sunday to cook up some basic Thanksgiving food for her and her family. Not gonna **** with a bird, so we're just going to order a whole cooked chicken from a chicken place, and then I'm gonna make stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and I think I've been roped into making a blueberry pie after saying how easy it is to make them.

I have no idea what to make for a vegetable though. I've heard green beans are expensive and my friend hates carrots. Thoughts?

Braised red cabbage.  Fry some onion in a saucepan, chop up the red cabbage, and add a peeled, chopped apple, some vinegar and then water, salt and pepper and then cook for a while.  You can add spices like cinammon if you have it.

Ooh, that sounds like an excellent backup plan if the beans are expensive. Thank you!

@yirj - my friend HATES carrots with a passion. It was my first thought too. I'll ask what she thinks about corn but corn is kinda weird in Korea

There's so much random corn on things that I thought it'd be a safe bet, hahaha

Ooo what about creamed spinach?

Some coworkers just came to the office bearing gifts-- snacks heated drinks from the local mart.  8)

Debating whether to venture into the city for a Thanksgiving meal. Thinking I might. Shame the restaurant is only doing it tonight and not Saturday as well. But I might take early leave so as to get there in time

Is spinach easy to find? I admit I don't go grocery shopping that much.
