09 October 2010

Once again, it's Thanksgiving up here in the Great White North.

As Canucks all over Canuckville celebrate with turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, poutine, etc., I've come up with a list of things we all should be grateful for...

  • falling asleep watching a tv show on a lazy afternoon without a care in the world, because you're with your dad, who is so awesome, he can protect you from the monsters even in his sleep...


  • taking pictures with your sis, even when that smartass camel decides it would be fun to bonehead the shot...


  • looking at bling with your cousin Jess, while your bro tries to kick Jess's boyfriend's ass at Wii Sports Resort...


  • having an oldie-time blacksmith pound out a nail for you to take home and NOT hammer into your bedroom wall...


  • a lovely new personalized cat pillow that you and your Mom decorated for the mental cat, who didn't say thank you because she just expected that she deserved gifts...


  • driving a go-kart that matches your pretty yellow party dress, at your buddy's birthday party...


  • riding an oldie-time tractor even if it is indoors, because you decided it was time to trade up from go-karts...


  • visiting with Gramma, who, if you didn't stop her, would spend the entire visit looking for cookies just so she could have something to give to you... aw...


  • enjoyin' The Forks and struttin' around in your fly fresh hoodie, because it's the place to see and be seen, yo...


  • pretend mouse burgers for your stuffie cat, because the rest of your stuffies are vegetarian...


  • priceless beloved friends, who invite you over,


    ... ply you with booze, and cook so much delish meat for you that you blissfully die from the meat sweats...

    ... yummmm...

  • racing up... from the river... toward your Dad and Mom at the top of the bank... because you can... and it's beautiful out... and you're so happy and alive...


  • Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    May you have many things to be thankful for...
