Get Thankful, You Ungrateful Bastards

Hey! It's the Wednesday before Thanksgiving! Which can mean only one thing! A 5+ hour drive to Michigan after work today!

YES!

Thanksgiving is supposed to be about tradition, so in recognition of this truth I am officially rolling out a new blog tradition - a blogdition if you will (wait, that sounds stupid) - for Clever Title:



THREE THINGS FOR WHICH I AM THANKFUL THIS YEAR

THING #1: I am, as always, thankful to have the next four days off from work. The closest thing I've had to a vacation lately has been getting ill. Before that, it was moving apartments. Before that, I don't even know. Probably getting ill again. I'll tell you what, though, working in Telecom gets to you after while. I can really use the chance to just chill out (even above and beyond my general distaste for work), and Thanksgiving is the harbinger for a season full of days off.

THING #2: I am thankful that I will be going home to Michigan this Thanksgiving and that my beautiful girlfriend will be along for the ride. The long drive home is much easier to take with someone else in the car. Now I won't have to pick up hitch hikers!

THING #3: Butterflies. They're beautiful.


And...


ONE THING FOR WHICH I AM NOT THANKFUL THIS YEAR

Detroit Lions football. I mean Jesus H. Christ, you people make millions of dollars you can't win one lousy freaking game? And this is what I have to watch on Thanksgiving? What an enormous pile of suck.



The plan is to do this every Thanksgiving season. Of course, chances are I'll forget come next year. Whatever, it's my blog. Don't judge me.

What are you thankful for, oh six loyal readers?
