Giving Thanks

Posted By on November 22, 2007

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful day of eating and drinking and spending time with those they love. Or at least tolerate. With copious amounts of alcohol.

I figure instead of talking about how stupid turkeys are?and why God was doing them a favor by making them the centerpiece of a holiday meal, that I will list out things I am thankful for this holiday.

  • I am thankful for bullets. And the fact that bullets are the lazy man’s cop out on real blog posts.
  • I am thankful that I am home for Thanksgiving. I spent a lot of Thanksgivings away from home and it is nice to be with my family. Even if my mom’s turkey is always a little dry. (Keep reading mom. I say nice things.)
  • I am thankful for alcohol. (See above re: spending time with family.)
  • I am thankful for some of the best friends money can buy, especially those not in Illinois. We don’t get to see each other every weekend any more, but God I miss you. Can’t wait for our hypothetical New Year’s!
  • I am thankful for still being close, if not closer, to friends from high school. Because you guys have seen me through it all.
  • I am thankful for all of you reading this right now. And for your comments. I don’t think I can ever express how awesome all of this is.
  • I am thankful for having a job. For right now. Because that is one more day I have a paycheck to pay the bills.
  • I am thankful for nieces and nephews.
  • I am thankful for people who wax your hair, specifically your eyebrow hair and bikini line. Because that means I don’t have to do it and fuck it up.
  • I am thankful for spandex. And its stretching qualities. And for manufacturers putting spandex in pants. For those of us who gain 30 pounds and refuse to?buy new pants.
  • I am thankful for my brother and sister-in-law. For so many things.
  • I am thankful for my mom. I lucked out that day when they were handing out Moms to the new babies.
  • I am thankful for laptops and wireless internet. Although it leads to inactivity. But at least I keep the Spandex makers in business.
  • I am thankful for reality TV. What we did before you, I don’t know. Yes, I’m all for the writers and WANT them to come back because I watch a lot of non-reality shows. But I can’t give up my reality TV. Even when The Bachelor is a huge ass. Good luck with relationships now, douche bag.
  • I am thankful for the internet. Because I have met so many cool people in the last year through blogs, etc.
  • I am thankful?for MamaPop open threads and MamaPop Talk. Which gets me through the slow days.
  • I am thankful for grapes and the genius who decided to ferment them into wine. You are my God.
  • I am thankful for holidays with days off. Because I sure was in need of one.

And finally,

  • I am thankful NaBloPoMo is almost over.

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone! Be safe, happy and full of yummy food!

    I’m thankful for a 9-2 season thus far, even if our “hypothetical New Year’s” got crushed by Tommy Trojan last nite… And I’m thankful for many GT2 in your fine city the past few years, and more to come.

    Have fun in St. Louis! Be safe. πŸ˜‰
