It's our Wednesday, sorry retail people happy Monday for you, though. The weekend was chilly with a side of snow and Giselle learned first hand just how hard it is to be outside. Countdown to Turkey Day is on!

6:15 AMAs

Did anyone watch the American Music Awards? Was anyone else just utterly confused by Gigi Hadid and Jay Pharaoh? We were too. They were kind of a sad excuse for hosts, but who can even believe they were available? Big win for our friends Tyler and Josh in Twenty One Pilots, Ariana Grande took home artist of the year, and Prince (actually his sister) took home an award for best soundtrack that everyone was kind of confused by. Oh and Chris Brown is still winning awards.

6:30 Celebrities For President 

Now that president-elect is a celebrity and Kanye West announced months ago he was running in 2020, we wanted to know what other celebrities would make spectacular (just ungodly horrible though) presidents. Ben wants Waka Flocka Flame for president. Tom Hanks and The Rock have a real chance, because who wouldn't vote for them? Winnie Cooper is very smart but Cheech and Chong would totally make weed legal.

6:50 The Trend

Trump has been absolutely destroyed left and right with recent Hamilton controversy and the American Music Awards. Alec Baldwin is back as Donald Trump while Kate McKinnon retires Hilary and takes on a new roll as Kellyanne Conway. In happy, politically-unrelated news, the Vikings might actually go to the Super Bowl say what??

7:15 17 Things You're Doing Wrong with Thanksgiving 

You are probably screwing up Thanksgiving right this second. First rule, buy your turkey three to four weeks before and it better be thawing now, because did you know that a proper thaw takes 3-4 days? You can't have regular potatoes and sweet potatoes mashed because that's just too much for guests to take. Ditch the mediocre side dishes that everyone feels they just have to eat. The most important rule of them all, always over-estimate on the booze.

7:30 $1000 Minute 

Joseph played this morning, he was pretty pumped about the long weekend and took home $50.00. You could win too!

8:15 Get To Know 

Everyone has those holiday movies that help you get through the Thanksgiving food coma. Ben's favorites are Home Alone and Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Dana is kicking back to Rocky 4, because there's a fight on Christmas Day in Russia. That counts right? Charles Brown (do you know him?) is a favorite at Giselle's. The Family Stone was a popular choice among our texting audience.

8:30 Family at Thanksgiving 

Luckily, we don't have nearly as many family issues as some people have, but everyone has that one uncle or cousin they just dread seeing twice a year. Those damn crazy relatives. Giselle had a pretty uncomfortable situation she ran into a couple of years ago with an ex boyfriend's family. We heard from a lot of you that just have to struggle through the holidays. The worst story was from Jeremy, who's mother recently sued him for college tuition. Praying for everyone, including all of you battling different political views.

9:30 Free and Fun Shenanigans

Date Night at Day Block Brewing with pizza and beer.

Pop-Up Beer Garden at The Bachelor Farmer, so get your drank on.

Did someone say kegger? Check out Psycho Suzi's this Wednesday to get black out.
