Behold photos of what Russian woman, Marta Yegorovnam, is claiming to be an alien corpse that she kept on ice for the past two years. Marta says she discovered ET (who incidentally looks more like Slimer from “Ghostbusters”) at a 2009 UFO crash site near her summer home where she rescued it’s frog-like body from a mess of “unbearably hot” metal. Instead of calling the authorities, she threw the creature in her fridge to preserve it. Yes, naturally. What’s that rancid smell in your fridge, Marta? Oh, it’s just the rotting alien corpse I keep in there. Don’t mind it. Allegedly, the creature was confiscated last week for investigative purposes. Interesting.
OK, I’m taking bets. Real or hoax? I say, HOAX! What say you? [Daily Mail UK]
Thanksgiving can really suck when you’re single. I should know, I’ve flown solo to six consecutive turkey dinners. A few years ago, when I thought I was going to have my first coupled-up T-day in ages, I got dumped out-of-the-blue two days before. To add insult to injury, my parents, who had planned to spend the holiday with me in NYC, had to cancel their trip because my dad was seriously ill. I ended up sitting on a semi-stranger’s floor, heartbroken and lonely, eating turkey off a television tray. It should have been miserable, but against all odds, I ended up having a really good time.
That’s when I decided that, for me, Thanksgiving is the day that I make the best of whatever s**t sandwich life hands me. It’s when I roll glass half-full. Instead of sulking over my stuffing, I prefer to try to make the holiday (gasp!) fun. I can choose to feel like a displaced orphan, sleeping on a cot while my brother and his wife take my Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress in MY old bedroom, or I can be the footloose, fancy-free chef happily getting sauced while preparing my favorite “Recipes For Lazy People.” After the jump, 10 reasons I’m thankful to be single (again) this turkey day.

“I do know how the whole show ends … It came to me in the middle of last season. I always felt like it would be the experience of human life. And human life has a destination. It doesn’t mean Don’s gonna die. What I’m looking for, and how I hope to end the show, is like … It’s 2011. Don Draper would be 84 right now. I want to leave the show in a place where you have an idea of what it meant and how it’s related to you. It’s a very tall order, but I always talk about ‘Abbey Road.’ What’s the song at the end of ‘Abbey Road?’ It’s called ‘The End.’ There is a culmination of an experience of people working at their highest level. And all I want to do is not wear out the welcome. I was 35 when I wrote the ‘Mad Men’ pilot, 42 when I got to make it, and I’ll be 50 when it goes off the air. So that’s what you’re gonna get. Do I know everything that’s gonna happen? No, I don’t. But I just want it to be entertaining, and I want people to remember it fondly and not think it ended in a fart.”
– Matthew Weiner on the denouement of “Mad Men“‘s final season. Maybe I misinterpreted his quote, but it sounds like we’re going to get to see Don Draper, present day, in the nursing home and find out what became of him and all the other characters. I’ll bet he’ll still be a hot, whiskey drinking womanizer at age 84. I need it now! [Grantland]
Terry Trent of Ohio was eager to get a jump on the Christmas season. The 44-year-old, allegedly high out of his mind on bath salts, was arrested for breaking into a Dayton home and putting up Christmas decorations. He was discovered watching television on the couch by the 11-year-old boy who lives there. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. I’ll get my things and go,” Trent told the boy, shortly before a neighbor called 911. By “things,” he meant the pocket knife he was armed with. He was charged with burglary and spreading the Christmas spirit. No word on how the tree looked. If only every burglary ended so well. [NY Daily News]
