Hi there! So, it’s November! That means we’re coming up on my favorite holiday (and no, I don’t mean Christmas). Yup, it’s almost time for Thanksgiving! Because of this, while everyone else is getting all excited about Santa and elves on shelves and all of that wonderful stuff, I have decided to dedicate my posts this month to what this part of the season is really about: giving thanks. Each week, I will list five things I’m thankful for. Feel free to join in!
What am I thankful for?
1. Family, of course. This includes Dads and Minions and the like. I was raised in a way that let me realize early on that family isn’t about blood and biology, it’s about the people who love you for who you are regardless of what you can do for them. They are the people who stick around (whether they live close by or just keep in touch) and let you know they think of you. So, for my family who’s reading this, I appreciate everything you do. I love you. And that’s enough sap for a long, long time. Never speak of this again.
2.Friends. My creepy kindred spirits. Whether we’ve known each other for 10+ years online or for less than a handful of years in real life or anything in between makes no difference to me. You guys (and gals) are pure awesome covered in awesome sauce with a cherry on top. And now, back to our regularly scheduled creepiness, please.
3. The Interwebz. Aside from the fact that most of my friends live in there somewhere, it just makes life easier. I don’t know how many stupid (or disturbing) questions I’ve found the answers to in order to make my stories more accurate. The NSA might have me on a watchlist somewhere, but at least I know the correct procedure for performing an enucleation (and that’s not even close to the weirdest thing I’ve looked up). Plus, I can stalk people. Take that how you want.
4. Spiked coffee. Whoever originally accidentally spilled booze in their coffee (or vice versa) and decided it was a good thing, you are wonderful! And each person who has experimented with different combinations ever since is kind of great in their own right. Then you have the genius who added whipped cream (you rock). Don’t ask me why (because I really don’t know), but I love the stuff. Disclaimer: I swear I’m not a lush.
5. The fact that I can block posts on Facebook from all of the people who started posting nothing but Christmas stuff at 12:01 AM on November 1st and they will never know. Not that I would ever do that. But, if you don’t hear from me until December… well, yeah. Sorry, not sorry.
