Here in America,Thanksgiving is a week from today. You might not know that from all the freaking Christmas commercials on TV, but it's true.

As far as I'm concerned, Christmas can fuck off until at least December 1. So let's talk about giving thanks.

I'm thankful for:

Technology that lets me access both the internet and my favorite TV channels even though my laptop has a busted screen.

Wonderful people who have offered to buy me a new laptop (thanks, but see above).

An amazing daughter who is determined to be a self-sufficient, fiscally responsible college student.

Clients who actually pay for my freelance writing services.

A cat who keeps me warm on chilly nights and purrs loudly when I offer chin scratches.

Friends who stick with me when I don't necessarily give them reason to want to.

Twitter, for making me laugh every damn day.

What are you guys grateful for? Share with me, please.


  1. That's an awful lot to be grateful for. Fortunate indeed.

    I'm thankful that this year has been an interesting year. Haven't had one of those for a while.

  2. I'm so glad for all the things you have to be thankful for and--okay, I'm just gonna come out and say it, thankful for your writing. You make me laugh frequently. And I think you need to know that you're appreciated.
    And thank you for emphasizing taking time to give some thanks. I am always thankful for focusing on one holiday before we move on to another.


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
