Thanks to You

Ugh. Another T-giving post. This makes what - five now?

I feel when I get to holidays like this, the posts are forced - as I'm supposed to have something insightful to say. And I don't.

....haven't you people been paying attention???????

Sure, I'm grateful for having a great partner and two somewhat loving cats. I have a decent family - and incredible friends. And fuck - this year, I still have a job, so that's saying something in these dark times. I ain't complaining.

I'm thankful that it is almost January 20th. ...and that I've only been to the ER once this year and that my permanent crown is going to be on in less than two weeks.

So this afternoon, I'll have to endure two of my sisters - but that can be done....and even with no alcohol, if I chose. IF. And yes, I'll have to eat the blandest, monochromatic meal that was ever devised.

I'm making salad.

What? Not a big deal to you? It is to me. We don't have salad traditionally on T-giving. So fuck if I'm not bringing something I'll eat.....or that I'll want to eat. But there will be pie also. No pumpkin for me though. I can spackle the walls with that stuff, but I ain't ingesting it.

But whatever your traditions are, and whatever you're thankful for - enjoy the day.

Anonymous said... do realize that this post came dangerously close to "Monday Moaning" material, don't you? Then again, wasn't there a "Thankful Thursday" column as well? I seem to remember the old cranks managing to twist that one into a slew of bitter rants as well though. Oh gawd, why do I remember this stuff?
