WOW. Just ... wow. It's more than a little mind-blowing, right? I've never seen anything quite like it outside of an investment banker's office. This woman's Thanksgiving is bound to go off without a hitch -- and yet, there are a few things about this spreadsheet that do raise some serious questions. Such as:

4. Fifteen minutes to take out the cranberry relish?
