*taps edge of wineglass with spoon*

Ahem…

*glares at everyone still running their mouths*

I say, AHEM!!!

I’d like to propose a toast.

Every year at this time, we gather together around a giant bird that’s been yanked, pulled, gored, and otherwise molested until it achieves the most glorious honor of sitting in the center of our table amongst mounds of various traditional side dishes for just a few moments before we rip into it like a pack of voracious, yet well-mannered, hyenas. But before we do, let us all take a moment to reflect on all the things for which we are thankful. I’ll go first.

I’m thankful for so many things, really. Britney Spears, whose new album drops on Dec. 2… the cute, argyle socks I bought at Target… pizza with cheese baked into the crust…

I’m also thankful for my 3-month old niece, who is destined to become the jewel of our bloodline and the savior of all things good and true… for the imminent return of Li’l Sis from across the wide ocean… for my family and friends… for my new job, which at the moment seems secure and exciting and fulfilling… for my health and independence…

But most of all, and I say this with the utmost sincerity, I’m thankful for Hugh Jackman.



May he continue to be hounded by photographers, now and forever.

Cheers! And Happy Thanksgiving!

@ Mary - Thanks! I'm thankful for yours, too. I'll post about the new job shortly. To be honest, I'm still getting my head around it ;-)

@ Erin - yeah, I know. It's been way too long. And you know, I've grown up a little bit, and I now understand the need for appointments. They don't make me cringe anymore. Anything we have to do to finally catch up will be worth it. 'til then...
