I'm sitting here at the computer stuffed and ready to crash out. As usual, the food consumption level was gloriously high. My sister flew up from Hawai'i to visit and her and her friend wants to pull an all-nighter and head over to the mall for some Black Friday Frenzy...hell no..we won't go..
I love Thanksgiving! When I was little, I used to love drawing turkeys! And I was really good at it!
What's not to love? You eat, there's football, you eat some more, there's more football, a little more eating, and then you sleep! Only to wake up and splurge on cheap ass stuff that you'll never really need in the first place!
But today was a little different.
I took my sister and her friend to Universal Studios Theme Park all day (thank goodness for my annual pass) and ended up going straight to a distant family member's house for some lovely gluttony...and some Bingo! I've never been involved in such an intense game of Bingo before. But then again there was never $400 on the line...Damnit Great Aunt Sally!! Lady luck was on your side and I will have my revenge!
But through the grand adventure that was today, and with the many texts sent and received, I began to think of all the things that I was really thankful for in life, as well as all the things that I'm NOT thankful for.
THANK YOU for all my family and friends. I love you all and, as cliche as it sounds, I really don't know what I'd do without you guys. You all influence me in different ways and help me keep my sanity in this crazy ass world of ours. NO THANK YOU to my cousin's dog, who was sitting on my face when I woke up this morning.
THANK YOU for all the wonderful food that I ate today (and everyday for that matter!). The endless trays of BBQ chicken, fried chicken, king crab legs, lobster, poke, and prime rib was beautiful and I'll be eating good for the next couple of days. NO THANK YOU for beets. Seriously, does anyone eat these things on purpose?! They taste like ass! The first time I had them I thought it was some kind of chopped sweet fruit like strawberries or something and so I took a big bite...blehhhhhhhh!!!
THANK YOU for the opportunities I'm getting in my career right now. It's a slow and tedious process but I really feel that I'm on the right track and I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing in life. NO THANK YOU for the 12 hour minimum work days..arrghhhh!
THANK YOU Zack and Miri for making a porno. NO THANK YOU for not casting me in it....bastards.
THANK YOU for being so sexy. NO THANK YOU for being so damn sexy! What can I say? When the packaging is this good, people tend to not care what's on the inside.
THANK YOU for being single in a time in my career where, time-wise and financially, I can't afford to worry about the needs of another person. NO THANK YOU for being single in a time in my career where, time-wise and financially, I can't afford to worry about the needs of another person but I wouldn't mind if I had to.
And lastly, THANK YOU for life and it's quirky sense of humor. No matter how much shit we seem to go through, things always seem to have a way of working themselves out. NO THANK YOU for the serious undertone that this entry just took. Such corn!
Happy Thanksgiving people!
I hope all the guys got drunk and passed out on the bathroom floor and all the women gained at least 10 pounds!
