5 Style Bytes You May Have Missed: #Thanksgiving Edition

‪@chrisrockoz: The five stages of waking up:
1. Denial
2. Bargaining
3. Anger
4. Depression
5. Coffee
We’re thankful for Thanksgiving, and the break from this routine – minus the coffee. We never take a break from coffee.

‪@CollegeCandy: You won’t believe how many calories there are in #Thanksgiving Dinner (or how far you have to walk to burn it off.) ‪http://bit.ly/19LJBAF 
Say it with us: who cares? (Okay, okay – we’ll go for a walk after.) #eating #alltheturkey 

@Allrecipes: When Thanksgiving leads straight into Hanukkah, you get the greatest food holiday of all time! http://ow.ly/qMFa8 #Thanksgivukkah
Hello, eight days of light, liberty, and latkes. Our dream come true.

‪@BravoTopChef: What’s on your #Thanksgiving menu? Might we suggest this bacon mac & cheese? ‪http://bravo.ly/1cI9xQQ  ‪#TopChef
Uh… yes. Yes, you may. While you’re at it, what else would you like to suggest? We’re all ears.

‪@HuffingtonPost: Stuffing cookies are the new pumpkin pie ‪http://huff.to/1bMO8rn  ‪#Thanksgiving
We have a hard time believing this is a thing that tastes good, but it has “cookies” in its name. So we have to try it. It’s in the rules.

‪@dabushscott: Now I understand why people listen to Christmas music early. It puts you in a good, festive mood.
Which makes us feel better about ourselves when we gorge on cookies and candy canes in November.

‪@mikeskupin: If ‪#money can’t buy happiness … explain ‪#pizza
Dough, sauce, cheese… oh, that’s not what you meant. Okay. Fair point.

‪@HotelFoxtrot: Who has 2 thumbs, speaks limited French, & has tickets for The Hunger Games double feature Thursday night?  This moi.
Do you have a date? On y va.

‪@ZooeyDeschanel: I wish my dogs could text me.
Tell them you love them. They ask for dinner. Repeat. All day long.

‪@MrJayManuel: ‪#ootd Green is the staple 4 ‪#menstyle this winter season. Step away from black. gucci with ‪@Prada shoes. ‪http://instagram.com/p/gtd9rBwQpB/ 
Hmm. Love this color, but what happened to emerald? Bueller? Bueller? Pantone? Bueller?

‪@Variety: “This Is the End” was the last movie rented from Blockbuster ‪#irony | ‪http://on.variety.com/1fxcC8v 
Let’s take a moment of silence for our childhood. Okay. Now: This seriously couldn’t have gone any better if they’d planned it.

‪@KaitlinRee: Off-brand BBQ chips have a recipe for meatballs on the back. I get all my recipes from bags of chips.
You can make meatballs with BBQ chips? Time to call every Italian grandma we know to ask why she never mentioned this magic.

‪@justinshanes: Running out of cranky co-workers to blast with my “Sounds like someone had their Grumpkin Spice Latte today” line.
We’re keeping this in mind for a future Monday.

‪@BostonDotCom: The latest news on Mike Napoli is that the Red Sox ‘absolutely’ want him back. ‪#RedSox hot stove 2013: ‪http://bo.st/1aCvgqu 
We absolutely want him, too. Oh. Did we say that out loud?

‪@rb4312: If ‪@altonbrown ever retires from ‪#IronChefAmerica, I’m pretty sure rainbows will cease to exist.
Along with macarons, the white Burberry trench coat, flights to Italy, and everything else good in the world.

‪@MandyHubbard: There’s definitely still some green paint in my hair from yesterday’s Seahawks game. Rather than shower again, I parted my hair differently.
Next time, we suggest a French fishtail braid, but it’s the thought that counts.

‪@RL_Stine: Did you know that monkeys can blush? I didn’t either. What do you think you have to do to make a monkey blush?
Compliment her shoes. Oh, wait.

‪@WolfsonLiterary: I’m glad I was out earlier and froze. Now I’m wearing 42 layers and I’m merely cold.
Excuse us while we mentally prepare ourselves for approximately four more months of this exact same tweet.

‪@BostonTweet: Well, according to Starbucks it is now “officially” the holiday season. ‪#TooSoon ‪pic.twitter.com/S7XKwWzJwI
Too soon? We’re in the holiday spirit the second the porch lights go out on October 31. #bringit

5 Style Bytes You May Have Missed: #Halloween Edition

‏‪@LaunchpadDillon: I just so badly want a Halloween tree to call my own.
Those are called “pumpkins.” Just FYI.

‪@WMUR9: Reese’s, M&M’s top 2013 list of most popular Halloween candy ‪http://on.wmur.com/1avoUeu 
Maybe it’s us, but we’re confused as to how this is (still) newsworthy.

‪@JordanPeele: My Halloween costume is going to be Siri. I’m gonna have my friend do a couple of laps around a party with me on speaker phone.
This sounds like a really bad idea. If you’re not at the party, you don’t get the candy. #duh

‪@greatideas: Whip up this caramel-butterscotch ‪#pumpkin milkshake; go into glorious food coma. ‪http://ow.ly/qecyJ  ‪#halloween
We usually don’t do food comas until Thanksgiving, but we may have to make an exception.

‏‪@GMA: There exists a #Halloween lobster and you can see it on display: ‪http://abcn.ws/Hmro6o 
That’s way too cool for “perfect for Halloween brunch” jokes. This year. Next year, she’s fair game.

‪@NYCeditor: In bed before 9:30 PM. I feel like I’ve won the lottery.
Will you consider splitting your earnings?

‪@TheGoToMom: You will be effortlessly filled with as much as you can open yourself to receive.
We’re open to receiving new chunky sweaters and leather leggings. No, really.

‪@dkny: Turkey bacon deserves more props.
As far as we’re concerned, turkey bacon deserves a parade.

‪@jodimeadows: Introduced Hubs to “What Does the Fox Say.” Feeling both amused and guilty for doing that to him.
Totally understand. Show him “Stonehenge” next. (You’re welcome.)

‪@WholeFoods: We’d like to introduce you to the very versatile butternut squash… ‪http://bit.ly/1cbN3fe
We’ve met. But is spaghetti squash in your network? We’d love to connect.

‪@tawnafenske: Trying to figure out a viable way to avoid getting out of bed today.
Simply not standing up is the popular method, but please let us know if you decide on something better.

‪@RuPaul: Quick Reminder: Don’t dumb down. Own your greatness
Is the official deed for our greatness on file somewhere? We’d like to review the terms.

‪@BostonGal04: Nothing proves that chivalry is dead like riding the subway
More evidence: walking in Times Square during tourist season.

‪@carlmliebenberg: To avoid a painful side stitch while you’re exercising, avoid drinking caffeine for at least an hour before you start.
So, in other words, we have to get up even earlier for a pre-gym coffee. This world is not fair.

‪@LaurenDeStefano: “Dear opening scene of The Lion King: Thanks. Thanks for that. Jerks”- Cats whose owners lift them and shout “Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba!”
Guilty. Oh, so guilty.

‪@MalcolmWHW: How did people get out of bad moods before Youtube?
Retail therapy. Oh, wait. We still do that.

‪@PBFingers: Candy corn M&Ms: You are simultaneously disgusting and delicious.
Thanks for summing up our exact thoughts on anything with white chocolate in it.

‪@CatWrightStyle: Once again spin class hurt me…and I’ve finally come to terms w/the fact that the cuter I dress at the gym the harder I want to work out
Excuse us while we write that down. It’s like Newton’s Law of Physic(al Activity) or something. 

‪@Jenny_Lundquist: My hand is cramping from writing all these postcards. I foresee a good combination of coffee/wine/chocolate in my immediate future.
Now we’re talking. Let’s just slip a massage into the mix too, shall we?

‪@NYCeditor: A great day for leather, no?
Forget sweater weather. Every day should be leather weather. (Go ahead and say that ten times fast.)

‪@NatalieandErika: If I ‪#shutdown every time I couldn’t agree with myself on something I would be running around naked.
Our cure for autumn indecision: cashmere. Not that we’re trying to run a government, but you know.

‪@jennyandteets: We all make sacrifices in life. And having a baby is just the only way I’m ever getting back in the trick-or-treating game.
You could also wear a costume to the drugstore for reduced-price candy on November 1. Just saying.

‪@nataliewhipple: If I bury myself in cupcakes, nothing can hurt me, right?
The most valid of valid strategies.

‪@Mhernon10: To every girl wearing tights today in Boston: really? check the weather ‪#FallInNewEngland
In our defense, our recently turned-over closets are wicked confused.

‪@Bethenny: I think octopus has the same publicist as kale.
We’d also put chia seeds on that client list.

Think it’ll help us get dressed faster in this turbulent world of in-between weather? Consider it downloaded. 

‪@mikefrosty: Driving these trucks is kind of a pain in the ass
Try walking in sky-high Louboutins.

‪@jodimeadows: Me: I have this event next week and this one… Hubs: I thought those weren’t until October. Me: Next week is October. Hubs: … Me: I know.
Okay, final straw. We’re hiding our calendars.

‪@sfujita55: Guy wearing tank-top with world’s longest armpit hair just ruined my experience in the Whole Foods produce section.
Please, guys – for the love of all that is good and stylish – take note: scissors are your friends.

‪@HotelFoxtrot: Excuse me Peyton Manning but I really need to throw a few more TDs, please and thank you.
This tweet better be related to fantasy football, neighbor. Or we’re revoking your Boston residency.
