Giving Thanks

Well, Turkey Day is hurtling toward us, and since today is my only day off this week (yes, I will be working on Thanksgiving) I thought I would make a list of things for which I am thankful.

~I'm thankful that I have a large, wonderful, funny, generous, normal Dysfunctional American family.

~I'm thankful that I have a job that, when it isn't making me suicidal, is actually kind of fun.

~I'm thankful I have a car that runs and a roof over my head.

~I'm thankful that I discovered blogging as a creative outlet because it's a lot cheaper than psychotherapy.

~I'm thankful for the Master of Munuvia, the amazingly brilliant yet incredibly unselfish Pixy Misa, who rescued me from the Slough of Despond (aka Blogger).

~I'm thankful for the thoughtful insights of Frank J.

~I'm thankful for the Zen-like innuendo and amoral rectitude of Harvey.

~I'm thankful for the inspiration from dozens of other bloggers too numerous to link. (They're all in my blogroll anyway).

~I'm thankful the Pilgrims served turkey and not raccoon.

~I am profoundly thankful to be an American.

Mmmm, raccoon...

Good thing about raccoon is that there's always leftovers. No matter how small the raccoon and how large the dinner party, there's always leftovers.

Tastes a lot like squirrel. Only not quite as nutty... :-P

I'm thankful you never gave up on begging me to come to MuNu, where the beer is always cold and the women are always warm & frisky ;-)

"I'm thankful the Pilgrims served turkey and not raccoon."
I dunno. Raccoon tastes just like chicken. Or maybe it was the spotted owl or California condor...

I'm just thankful that most Americans stay in America, which is thousands of miles away.

Happy thanksgiving
