It really sucks Kuwait's history doesn't involve pilgrims and Native Americans and turkeys; every time Thanksgiving rolls around, I get grumpy. I want gravy and green bean casserole and to do nothing but watch American football and beat up younger family members while crushing beer cans against my forehead.
Ah, yes, the American Thanksgiving, how I love it so. Despite the grumpiness, this is the time of year I like to focus on the things I am thankful for.
My loyal readers (hi, dad?) may notice I've cut my 'Thankful' list in half this year; take that as you will.
In any event, 2007's 25 Things To Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving:
1. Good friends
2. Melted cheese
4. Text messages
5. John Legend's Let's Get Lifted
7. Not being tied down to sucky jobs that drain your energy and leave you flustered and miserable
9. Good weather
10. My family
11. Poker nights
12. Music downloads
13. My BFF
14. Gay boys
15. Hours-long gossip sessions
17. Digital cameras
18. Letting go of the past
21. The perfect red lipstick
22. Unconditional love
23. Acoustic guitar
24. Weekend getaways
Happy Turkey Gobble Day, boys and girls. May you be safe, happy and warm.
"This year, I'm gonna celebrate Thanksgiving the old-fashioned way; invite everyone in the neighborhood over, feed them an enormous meal, kill them and take their land."
