happy thanksgiving everyone!

i've just returned from my annual family thanksgiving... dinner at the beach. it's non-traditional and a little weird, but always ends up being fun.
the best thing about thanksgiving is that we eat early... like, at 3 pm. this is good because right about when er starts, i'll hop up and make myself a hot turkey sandwich... the only appropriate way to end thanksgiving.
and becasue i'm a dork, here are the things i'm thankful for.

- my family. they're slightly dysfunctional, but what family isn't? they are great and they really take care of me. i love them.

- my housemate. before she moved in, i had a pretty lousy track record... only one of the four previous housemates/roomies was a tolerable human being. i've very very thankful that i live with someone that i can stand. and i like her too! ;-)

- the internet. sometimes i take it for granted, but it really is one of the coolest things ever.

- broadband. this makes the internet coolness level rise about 100 times.

- school. i may be bitching about finals in a few days, but i know i'm really lucky to have a college education.

- friends. i'm lucky, because my friends tend to stick around for a long time (case in point - me and donna have been best friends since 1993.) the new friends (hi debbie) are wonderful, and i hope they will soon join the crowd of 'old friends'.

- music. i love live music. i love that i get to go see live music on a regular basis. i miss phish, but i'm thankful that i got to see them 11 times... and hopefully i'll see them again in the near future.

- freedom of speech. not to get jingoistic, but i am very thankful for the fact that i can sit here in front of this here computer and write whatever the hell i want and put it up for people to read. even with all it's flaws, america is a pretty fucking cool place, and i'm glad i live here.

ok, that's enough of that. time to go set up my christmas tree and watch friends. ;-) hope everyone had a great day!
