Remember to always consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. Dear Anita: Thanksgiving was the usual hassle for my wife and me. Our son and his wife insist on having the dinner at their home and won't allow any of our friends to come, so we always eat and run. They don't understand us and we don't want to hurt their feelings, but we don't want to stay and spend a lot of time with my son in-laws. They are cranky and aggravating and complain about everything. Dear Reader: Families are often friends you didn't get to pick. Don't give up. Why don't you have the "bird" at your home next year?

She is a reporter for the Kings Point newspaper and a regular columnist. And she is a "Sunshine Girl" for a local Mason's group, sending get-well and birthday cards to local residents. She also enjoys playing bingo and mah-jongg each week, attending movies and dining out with friends. "This is all the things I do that I enjoy," explained the grandmother of five. "I hate to be idle.

Forget recipe lists and laundry hints these publications boast sexy updates and focus on fitness. By Alex Beam Tne Boston Globe So what do the new women's magazines tell us about the New Woman? Three new publications have appeared more or less simultaneously Jane, Sports Illustrated WomenSport and Conde Nast Sports for Women vying for distaff mind share and the almighty Clairol advertising dollar. My conclusions thus far: New Woman much like the Old Woman: I've been savoring the debut issue oijane, the hot new Disney-Fairchild rag that seems to be targeting the same demographic as GQ. Those GQ men who are looking for second wives, that is. The eponymous Jane is 34-year-old editor Jane Pratt, a twice-failed talk show host, whom The Wall Street Journal dubs "a firecracker who has made more noise than money." In 246 advertising-choked pages oijane, I spotted three flashes of semi-originality: 1. "It Happened to Me," a grown-up version of YMs terrific "Say Anything" column. Instead of menstrual mishaps, Jane showcases the unpleasant consequences of testifying in a sexual harassment case. 2. "Fashion Isn't Brain Surgery," a brief essay on fashion by ... a brain surgeon. 3. Posing as a personal assistant to John F. Kennedy Jr., Kato Kaelin and others, a Jane staffer tries to score complimentary tickets to an upcoming U2 concert. John-John and Carolyn get Women are athletes and men competition in this new magazine from Sports Illustrated. All-Access passes. As for the K-Man: "We're so sorry, Mr. Kaelin, but we don't have any more tickets to give away." Even New Women have to eat: Jane prints six recipes, most of them elementary. The current issue of Good Housekeeping has 23. Articles In Jane you won't find in Good Housekeeping. "I Hate the Spice Girls"; "Helium May be an Acquired Taste." (Helium is a Boston band.) Vice versa: "Pet Insurance; Is it Worth It?"; "Does Pre-Treating with Detergent Work?" a . Jane celebrity interview: "Did you know there's a fish in Belize that can reproduce with itself? That's so groovy and empowering." Drew Barrymore. GH celebrity interview: "I am more balanced because of David and the children" Michelle Pfeiffer. Conde Nast Sports for Women celebrity interview Weight lifting and running shoes are hot items in Conde' Nast Sports for Women. that could run in GH. "It's funny, I have a very psychotic, wild side, but I also love knitting." Tea Leoni. (On second thought, maybe not.) B Jane advertisers you won't find in the women's sports mags: Virginia Slims, Misty Light Slims, Parliament Lights, Kamel Cigarettes, Skyy Vodka. B Old Woman asks: "When my husband and I first met, we made out all the time. Why doesn't he like to make out anymore? Are most guys like this once they're married?" Red-book. New Woman asks: "I have been told that lifting free weights can stunt your growth. Should I continue weigh tlifting?" Sports Illustrated Women! Sport. B Jane considers men to be: meat. SISW considers men to be: competition. SUSHI From ID studio executives stand outside, rain or shine, for up to an hour, waiting to be seated and possibly abused by a man tjiey say makes the best sushi in town. The nondescript-looking eatery, located in a Studio City strip-mall, does not take reservations, has no valet parking and lacks any of the other amenities of a trendy restaurant. The clock on the wall runs 30 minutes fast to encourage diners to leave when they finish eating. At the handful of tables, customers are allowed to choose their sushi from the menu, but a seat at the sushi bar, where owner Kazunori Nozawa presides, is where the real action is. While New York's Soup-Nazi grudgingly allows customers to pick their own soup from the menu, there are no such niceties here. When you sit at the sushi bar, Nozawa decides what you are going to eat. Sit down, shut up Here the old adage "The customer is always right" has mutated into "The customer knows nothing." With a piercing look that some might take for total disdain, Nozawa assesses your palette and decides what you are going to eat. "He has a professional eye," his wife Yumiko said. "He knows your tongue and tries to treat your tongue. Some people like tuna with lemon or prawn sauce, but he refuses. If they want to argue with him or pressure him, he kicks them out." At least two or three times a month customers find themselves banished, never again to savor the delights of Nozawa Sushi. In this restaurant, the mandatory "We reserve the tight to refuse service to anyone" is not lip service, it is a battle cry. Behind the counter another sign spells out the rules to new customers: "Today's Special Trust Me." And don't nibble on your sushi. It is one piece one bite. This is not negotiable. Nozawa, 52, does not mince his words. "They don't know sushi, American people, so I have to teach American people good style, so trust ffie," he said. "I have to teach Americans sushi manners. If you don't like it 1 .1 iH.n .1.11 1 11 ijk. WiitlWB' liniw vj i i volume in front of all his custom-' ers. Indeed they might better be; called his devotees. Many diners approached the sushi bar before leaving to shower Nozawa with praise for the "experience" with which he had graced, their lives. One suggested it Was better than sex. " Tim Zagat of restaurant guides Zagat Survey said it was the combination of good food and an odd-' ball chef that made the restaurant a winner. "This is one of the highest-rated restaurants in the survey . . . it is fabulously highly rated," Zagat said. "If you have wonderful food and you see the abuse element as a fun thing to come and see it can be amusing. As long as your expectations are right it can be a turn-on." Nozawa said he has been making sushi for 34 years and still it is not enough. His quest in life, he said, is to make his rice softer and softer. This is what makes him happy. v. "Rice, fish, seaweed, wasabi and soy sauce, that's it. Five kinds and five kinds of best is the best way," he said. "I have the five best, and the technique too." .; Emmy-winning actress HeleJi Hunt, star of the situation comedy Mad About You, said the "sushus simply the best in town." ' ' ',; Other famous actors, and character actors whose names you never remember no matter how often you see them, also eat-'at Nozawa Sushi. But they do not get any special treatment. "We don't know who are khe very famdlis people. Thby're all just customers," Nozawa's wife said. : Mailman explains 'Santa Claus Coming to Town' Holiday TV mas Donkey: An orphan donkey leads Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem. Animated.
