Good Morning, It’s Friday!

Yore Weekend Eve Open Thread is up, running and ready for business. I don’t have a lot to say up here today because (1) no one reads the Mythical Words Up Top, and (c) I got home from work at a decent time and have a chance to get to bed before midnight, so I’m taking it. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s the Friday, time to take half a day off and start the weekend early!

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to wash your hands, wear a mask, complain about Coral and Welcome Aboard!
