Full of Thanks
I’m not doing one of those “This is My Life,” posts. I’m not. I’m not going to post about food or family because that is trite and you don’t care. But there are things I’m thankful for.
I’m thankful for the Queen performance at Live-Aid. I’m thankful I was old enough to be alive to see it and young enough that it was formative in my understanding of music and performance. To me, that moment was like church and Freddie Mercury was our priest.
I’m thankful sanity and strength and being smarter than the average bear.
I am thankful for language and the ability to put words together in a way that people seem to appreciate
I’m thankful for election and an informed electorate and WINNING! That’s always nice.
I am thankful for Rachel Maddow and her tireless work to keep said electorate informed.
I am thankful for little sisters and smart hoars (you hoars know who you are.)
I am thankful for no longer being in a relationship with a clinical narcissist.
I am thankful for blogging as it allows me to speak the truth as I see it in my own little corner of the ‘verse.
I am thankful for cute shoes and fat girl clothes.
I am thankful for Facebook, Twitter, and cell phones so that I can wish a bunch of people Happy Gluttony Day without having to talk to them. Because I know a lot of people and even a five minute conversation is going to eat into my life.
I’m thankful for whatever clever little proto-human picked up a feather or a flower or whatever and decided that it needed to go in the hair somehow and thus invented accessorizing.
LOOK AT THIS HAT
I want it!
I’m thankful for two sticks and some string which has kept me sane and allowed me to make pretty things.
I am totally making this.
Shut up. I do too need more hats in Florida.
I am thankful for friends who invite me to their houses and don’t make me clean afterward.
I am thankful for pets. ‘Cause even though I don’t have one right now I remember what it was like to be the bipedal food delivery system. They seem to like that.
I am thankful for Dr. Who.
I am thankful for Netflix, which I will watch once I get home until I fall into a food coma.
Happy Gluttony Day youse guys.
