Giving Thanks

Finally…Thanksgiving is here.  If you’re like me, you get a short day on Wednesday to prepare for what usually turns into a pretty weird night of drinking.  While Thursday is nothing but a multiple-nap, football watching glut-fest, it is also a time to give thanks and I want to spend the little free time I have right now to touch on that.  This year, I am thankful for being married to an amazing girl/my best friend, a great family, good health, a job and incredible friendships…but I am also thankful for a host of other things:

  • Chic-fil-a chicken biscuits
  • Degree deodorant
  • Staplers
  • Extra large hats
  • Canned goods with a pop-top lid
  • Jack Dalton
  • HOV lanes
  • Flannel
  • Maker’s Mark
  • HD
  • Mexican restaurants
  • Seasonal beer
  • Wayfarers
  • Men’s league softball
  • Saved By The Bell re-runs
  • Cheese grits

I really could go on and on about things that I am thankful for this year, but I feel like today’s entry wouldn’t be complete without me explaining a few things that I am, in fact, NOT thankful for. 

  • People who drive the speed limit
  • The New Moon Saga
  • Politics
  • Clowns
  • Kentucky Grilled Chicken
  • Visitor parking in apartment complexes
  • Fire drills – especially when you’re on the 23rd floor
  • The Swine flu vaccine
  • Made for tv movies
  • Poker on ESPN
  • U2 or Green Day
  • Joe Cox

I hope that everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving.
