I'm going to try and get a better post than this up, but all bets are off as to whether or not I'll manage it. In case I don't get back, here's a hastily constructed list of what I'm thankful for:

Family... even when they do things like leave silly putty-encrusted pajamas in your fridge... *kudos to the lovely lady who actually had to deal with that ;)*

Identical twin sisters... even if they don't get you all the time... because even when they don't get you, they've still got you... you get me? :)

Friends... the ones that give you surprise parties... even when they've been so busy with their own lives that they had to throw things together at the last minute...

Cats that keep my lap warm... even if it means that they're also sitting on my ms... or hitting random keys on the computer, erasing vital information...

Ponies that don't buck me off... even though they do insist on acting like a ta tas...

A steady job... even though it feels like it takes time away from my writing and makes me older...

A steady job... because it keeps me physically fit and young... and gives me inspiration for the writing I'm convinced it inhibits most of the time...

Rejections... even when they piss me off... and use the word 'but'... and temporarily crush me...

BLANK PAPER... because it gives me something to do with all of that *stuff* I get from those rejections... and it gives me a place to go, whenever I need to leave... a future to look forward to when the present is questionable... and a past to look back on once I've left where I am...


  1. Awwww. Happy Thanksgiving, A.!

  2. May your day be filled with blessings!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving!

    And thanks for the shout-out about the silly putty pajamas. Yep, that was quite a shocker to open the fridge and see them inside :)
