Happy Thanksgiving!

Standard

You know what time it is.  Once again, give thanks and have a laugh.

Besides all the usual stuff, what am I thankful for this year?  I’m thankful for all the great music I’ve heard and will hear.  I’m thankful for real and virtual friends.  I’m thankful for dog shows.  I’m thankful for The Twilight Zone and good scary ghost stories.  I’m thankful for the endless cat videos on the Internet.  I’m thankful for all the books sitting on my shelves that I’m looking forward to reading.  I’m thankful for Coca Cola, my one true vice.  I’m thankful for Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin, Galileo, Sir Isaac Newton, and all the other brilliant scientists for moving us forward.  I’m thankful for podcasts.  I’m thankful for DVRs.  And this time next year, I’ll be thankful that Donald Trump is not president.

Thanksgiving Repost

Things have changed since I originally wrote this (I made a couple of edits to reflect that).  But I’m still grateful for everything I was then, and more.  And if you’re as grateful as I am, please take a couple of minutes to visit The Greater Good sites (I get there through thebreastcancersite.greatergood.org).  You don’t have to buy anything or donate money.  You just click to give.  Give a little back.

I hope everyone has a happy day, without too much stress. Remember to be grateful every day, not just today.

I’m thankful for having all the basics, for food and shelter and clothing. I’m grateful for my health. That I have the luxury of fancy electronics and cable television. I’m grateful for all the wonderful people in both my real life and my virtual life. I’m grateful for the right to vote and free speech. So, thanks to whatever higher power exists, and thanks to everyone here (including me) that helps make all these things possible. And a special thanks to that poor turkey that gave up its life for my holiday meal.

Right now, I really grateful that I can listen to this wonderful song, the only Thanksgiving-themed song that is any good. And I hope you’ll be grateful that Arlo Guthrie spent nearly 20 minutes singing/talking about “Alice’s Restaurant.” Enjoy, and have a great time eating yourselves stupid.

Turkey Day Repost

Standard

The holidays are different this year.  I had a bit of a bad time while I was out shopping yesterday, but I powered through it.  (I’m sure I’ll have a nice big meltdown before Christmas.)  But I’m still thankful.  I have my mom, and the rest of the family, and my friends.  I have my furry family members.  I have good health, and a roof over my head.  We’re having the big meal tomorrow, because a lot of people in our family have to work today; Mom and I will do something smaller here at home tonight.

I hope y’all have a lovely day today.  Enjoy your families.  Go shopping if you want.  Eat yourselves stupid (or not; that’s probably better for your health).  Enjoy listening to the massacre.
