For Robert Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson represented the type of politics that John F. Kennedy was elected to do away with. He saw Johnson as a man who believed in nothing, who had no principles, could not be trusted, was crude, was rude, was uncouth… an absolutely detestable human being. He hated everything about Lyndon Johnson. And the interesting thing is, Lyndon Johnson felt the same way about him. – Steven Gillon

anonymous asked:

tsoip pack thanksgiving: go!

Hahahaha OKAY SO. Stiles has this down to a science. He has charts and diagrams. Everyone has a specific job and responsibility and a deadline to meet.

A TSOIP pack Thanksgiving that includes immediate family only would have, at the end of TSOIP, 32 people at it. (33 if Cora’s there, but if Cora’s there it means the alpha pack is there, which would bump it up to 39, so let’s just say 32.)

Rule of thumb is 2 lbs of turkey per person so that means SIXTY-FOUR pounds of turkey, so three large birds. Pretty sure the first time they did a pack Thanksgiving, Stiles had Derek install a second oven.

Stiles is responsible for turkey and gravy. This is his only job, because, you know, three turkeys is a lot to manage. (He occasionally experiments with deep-frying and other methods but his favorite is just old-fashioned, oven-roasted turkey. He also sometimes does entire trays of turkey legs, because the legs are always super popular, especially with the kids.)

Derek does yams. There’s an old Hale family recipe for candied yams which he makes every year.

Scott, as per usual, is not allowed to help cook. His job is to set the table and make sure there are enough drinks.

Allison and Isaac are responsible for the stuffing. Allison is the only one who’s willing/able to cut a bunch of onions. All the wolves whine about their delicate nasal passages. Allison dons goggles and nose plugs and tells them that they are babies. Isaac chops three heads of celery without complaint. Sometimes apples, too, depending on what recipe they’re using.

Boyd does potatoes. He has that trick to peel them by boiling them briefly and then twisting the skins off, which Stiles still thinks is super cool and thus makes him do it every year.

Erica is responsible for cranberry sauce. Both canned and fresh, because there are people of varying tastes at this shindig. Danny is responsible for dinner rolls and cornbread and no, Stiles doesn’t care that that’s lame, it’s crucial! A Thanksgiving dinner without bread is no Thanksgiving dinner at all.

Mac does the green bean casserole, because she was super disappointed the first year when it had bacon in it and she couldn’t eat it. She took over that duty. Often makes roasted brussel sprouts as well.

Jake helps Victoria with dessert, because he’s the only one who isn’t super intimidated by her, and also, she makes the most fantastic pumpkin pie anyone has ever had. She also makes pecan pie and apple pie, because you can’t have enough pie at Thanksgiving.

Chris and Melissa are responsible for alcohol. Tom is responsible for making sure everybody who gets drunk has a ride home.

Stiles sleeps until noon the next day.

Songs We Love: P.S. Eliot, ‘Bear Named Otis (Demo Version)’

“It’s a long way from the songs she writes now as the ever-evolving Waxahatchee, but is indicative of a time when punks (particularly with acoustic guitars) burned the songwriting handbook to make something raw and honest.”

Today on Songs We Love, Lars Gotrich, reflects back to P.S. Eliot’s raw and melodic sound in anticipation of the 2 CD compilation of recorded works, 2007-2011, (incl. the home recordings!).
