Thanksgiving

The last two years I've used dedicated a Thanksgiving post to all the things that I'm thankful for that year. Which, besides eating my body weight in a variety of carbohydrates is the point of Thanksgiving, right?

This year I am getting out of town early (tomorrow) to Portland to visit friends, hike Forest Park, snowshoe, eat deep-fried turkey and quite possibly hit Mary's Club. Most of my local friends are getting out of town this year, which is cool- the weather here is shitty. Not that Portland will be much better, but I'd rather be in shitty weather near the mountains and ocean than in Chicago.


It has been a tough year for me and some of the people I'm close to, and it's hard to look back and feel good about a lot of it. Don't get me wrong, there is plenty that I'm thankful for (Always Sunny in Philadelphia; Capes, and the people who wear them; Crowded House reunion; The fact that I got off my ass and went back to school) but mostly I'm just going to focus on the fact that all the people in my life are healthy and strong, and that we're alive to experience another Holiday season. I also want to thank all the people I've met- and become friends with- through this blog.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! PROPER.

OK, 1st off, you're welcome. As I know you were talking about being grateful for having met me and not any of those other hags.

2nd - I am stealing your idea for a "thankful" post but will give you the proper credit.

So there.

Oh and have fun in Oregon.

I'm thankful you haven't hit on me, even though I'm probably the most handsome straight guy you'll ever meet.

What about being thankful that New York decided to do a sequel? Or that Hell Date exists? (Clearly I've been watching too much TV)

I hope you enjoy your time in Portland. erhaps we will stroll by eachother and have an out-of-blog experience.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I figured since you didn't mention them, being thankful for trannies and Helen Mirren's boobs was just implied.

Happy Thanksgiving, Panda.

Actually I have the flu, but thanks for your concern. Is it wrong to get slightly aroused by deep-fried turkey?

Uh...how come you didn't tell me you were coming??? You're going to call me so we can meet up while you're here, right? RIGHT?
