I Am Also Thankful for Robot Movies

So it is late, and I want to go to bed because I just finished some really, really boring work and I am tired and H is like, "COME TO BED ALREADY," but I am not going to be able to post again for several days, so I must get one more post out before I go. I like to think you care and would miss it if I didn't post, but in reality, you are probably thinking, "Eh." Or you could be thinking, "What does it mean when a guy says don't call me I'll call you?" because that is the exact search phrase someone just used to find my blog. And, dear searcher, it means that you should not call him, and he is not going to call you. No one really says this though, I hope. But then why is someone searching for this? I don't know. Where was I? Oh, NOWHERE BECAUSE I AM JUST BABBLING.

It's almost Thanksgiving so I should probably talk about things for which I am thankful.

I am thankful that I was not involved in the horrible accident I witnessed this morning. There was only one car in between me and a dump truck that went crazy and dumped an entire truckful of sand into the middle of the street while taking out a street light and the entire metal post and arm connected to the light.

I am thankful that I will get to spend time with my mom, her s.o., my sister, and H this weekend.

I am thankful that Jenny introduced me to beergaritas.

I am thankful for all the comments on my blog.

I am thankful for wonderful friends like the Gopester who reads my blog but doesn't comment. (Secret note for G: a certain high school coach never did contact me though he apparently stalks you on the internet. How rude!)

I am thankful for my job.

I am thankful for free tickets to a really fun college basketball game this weekend.

I am thankful for Diet Dr Pepper. And regular Dr Pepper. But not Caffeine Free Diet Dr Pepper.

I am thankful that the Holiday House is decorating for Christmas this year! Already there are lights up, and there is a little fence-type thing made of giant plastic candy canes.

For what are you thankful?

I'm thankful for my family (most of the time), bloggy friends, muscle relaxers,and I'm sure much, much more.

Maybe you can tell me Friday who that stalker coach is. The answer probably won't surprise me. In fact, I'm already formulating ideas. haha

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful for my son, my husband, my job, our home...

The title of your post reminds me of the way my truck-loving son always ends his prayers of what he's thankful for: "Garbage trucks, pick up trucks, Mommy, Daddy, Amen."

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'll keep it simple: (it's been a rough year)

I am thankful I am still breathing. And blabbing.

I am thankful that, even when I am in a crappy mood and wondering where all that gratitude I was gushing with a couple weeks ago went, I can still read something like "I am also thankful for robot movies" and immediately crack up laughing.

Happy Thanksgiving, R. Have a safe trip!

Wait, you are thankful for my friendship, or thankful that I don't comment? Hopefully it's not the latter!

I am thankful for my new husband and our families, for friends like -R- who have always been there for me, and for the fact that I am done sending 52 job applications! Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful for my health, my husband and my friends and for all the love I receive on a daily basis.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

I'm thankful for all my friends, family, my home, and health. I also love Diet DP. It is one of the only decent diet drinks in my opinion. :)

Thankful for long weekends. My boyfriend, however annoying he has been of late. A cat who seems to be doing a little better. A house above my head. My family and friends who always make sure I'm okay, and love me even when I'm not, or when I'm impossible to deal with. And I'm thankful for this group of bloggers which I refer to as my "friends" in the regular world, but only pronouncing the airquotes in my head. Oh, and also very thankful for mashed potatoes.

Hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

Jenny said...

I'm thankful for my wonderful friend who not only tried the beergaritas but also liked them. Or at least is lying to me to save my feelings. You rock, -R-.

Right now I am NOT THANKFUL for bloglines, as it is not working, and no one is updating, and I MISSED THIS ON TUESDAY for God's sake.

I'm thankful for an assload. And I want to know what a beergarita is (or did I miss that, too? DAMN YOU, BLOGLINES!)
