Americans only: Do you "prime your tummies" for Thanksgiving dinner?

Have you ever been a) too full to eat or b) so hungry that you can't fully appreciate a large dinner? I am heading out to my friend's house to help him cook and work on some projects around his house. I "primed" my tummy just now with some sourdough bread, butter, cream cheese, and lox. (And some red onion.) Hopefully I will have just the right amount of hunger when the turkey and trimmings emerge. Do you "prime yourself" for big dinners? Inquiring minds want to know.

@vandana7 I have made it home from Thanksgiving dinner. I must attend to either: a) the beautiful French poet and musician girl beckoning to me, wearing only one of my Brooks Brothers shirts, or b) the two star Sudoku I started last night but fell asleep before I could complete it.

Before we ate a turkey dinner(all the trimmings), I ate an orange/cranberry muffin with about three cups of coffee(milk). It tied me over until the meal was ready. The darn turkey wasn't fully cooked! So, Jay cut some white meat off for me and dark meat off one thigh (his favorite) and the remainder of the bird went back into the oven for another hour. Thank heavens, everything else was ready to eat:) We had a nice meal together!
