50 Things I'm Thankful For.

On this day before Thanksgiving, I'm busy compiling the best comments of 2005. There are hundreds, they are all funny, and it's a huge hassle. This, coupled with actual work, has left me far too occupied for a real post today.

However, in the spirit of thanks and giving, I wanted to cast out the nets and see what everyone is thankful for this year. I want to see if we can get the list to 50 by the end of the day.

Post once, post 50 times, I don't care. Tell everyone at the CDP what you're thankful for, and we can all share and be merry in the comments section. Here, I'll start us off:

1. John Madden Football 92-98 for the Sega Genesis.

Let's go. I'll be back before you know it with the best comments of 2005. Is Lost on tonight? I can never remember.

Comments:
2. Mayo.
 
3. To be said in a well-rehearsed voice: "I am thankful to have a hubby that scrapes my windows in the morning."
4. I am thankful for Debbie bringing me a bowlful of naked taco dip for my birthday today.
 
Putting 2 thankful things in one comment won't get us to our goal any faster. God, I hate you so much right now. I could just set you ablaze and strip the skin from your flesh.

5. The Missus. Totally. (Her birthday is on the 27th, by the way. She'll be the big 2-2!
 
)
 
1. A wonderful husband who puts up with all of my baggage.
 
2. A beautiful, majestic, lion-like cat who loves to cuddle with me on the couch and in bed.
 
8. People who don't understand the concept of numbering things. God bless them all.
 
9. Mark Linn-Baker, and the rest of the cast of "Perfect Strangers."
 
10. The Wafflehouse
 
11. IHOP, but not for their Cheese Blintzes.

12. Arrested Development's doomed third season.
 
13. My capability to apologize to Sherry for making fun of her a few comments up.

Totally kidding. Franklin and Ben rule. They should open a craft store together.
 
14. My ability to realize that it is not really a threat when my husband says he's going to burn me strip off my flesh.
15. Being diffcult enough to put 2 "thankfuls" in this post, even though it resulted in an idle death threat last time.
 
*and
 
16. The Missus utter fearlessness. Seriously, that woman isn't even close to being afraid of me. And I'm scary!

17. Two "thankfuls" in one comment. I sort of like it now. It's a package deal.
 
18. The hubby's proclamation that I am fearless, even though I burst into tears at the mere thought of spiders.
 
19. Spiders.
 
20. Stepped-on spiders.
 
21. Shoes.
 
22. Leg muscles that enable stomping.

23. The human brain's ability to store thousands of seemingly useless quotes from television shows.
 
Gabe's mouth no longer being a vile, rank death-hole teeming with filth.
 
24, that was.
 
25. My TV.

26. Feline Dentists.
 
27. Self-check out stands at Walmart and Home Depot.
 
28. Getting paid a day early due to Thanksgiving.
 
29. Chuck D.
 
30. Candied yams, creamed corn, and acorn squash.
 
31. Tofurkey and Potato Salad.
 
32. Mildly amusing incidents that translate well into blog posts.
 
33. Cheese in a spray can.

34. The Sugar Puff Daddy.
 
35. Editing your post so you can meet your goals easier.
 
36. Seinfeld Seasons 5&6 gift set
 
(With Puffy Shirt Collectible!)

37. Trivial Pursuit Pop Culture Volume 2 Game.
 
38. The almost non-existent possibility that I may have enough knowledge to beat Ryan at least ONCE at a game of Trivial Pursuit Pop Culture Volume 2.
 
39. Carnation Chocolate Malt Mix.
 
40. the one am radio
 
41. Boston's Gourmet Pizza for the delicious lunch today.
 
42. hopefully sleeping in all weekend.
 
43. Tony Little
 
44. Fat Tony.
 
45. Feeling like the smartest person in the room at every single one of my classes at college, but feeling like the dumbest person in the room when I hang out with you people. Damn that humbling feeling...
 
46. My grandma's stuffing.

47. My mother-in-law's mashed potatoes.
 
48. No Wind Ensemble today.

49. Going on break with Benny tonight at Fox 11. It gives me an excuse to eat fast food.
 
Well, we are pretty smrt.

48. Mrs. Jenkel's mashed potatoes.

49. Mr. Jenkel's lack of shame.

Who wants #50?
 
Looks like I got it, actually. Good for me!
 
I wanted 45 to be Tony Danza. Or Rich Little. Or Randy Savage.

CELEB-BLAM!
 
Not thankful for: Thinking I'm buying Seinfeld Season 5&6 gift set and getting home, and opening, Season 1,2&3 gift set, the DVD's of which I already own... (mint!)
 
It's Thanksgiving, I've been up for 5 minutes, and grandma has already asked me if my soul patch is a gang mark. Since there is no MARKED 50...

50. Having to work today, so as to not deal with crazy grandma.

I always have been happy with the CDP's customer support. I don't think you have too many jobs available, but maybe there's new postings I haven't seen yet.

YOU keep keeping on!
 
GOBBLE-BLAM!
 
That's "GOBLAM!"
 
BLAM! Doesn't take a holiday. Ever.
 
That's sad... I would have hoped that BLAM! would spend some time with it's family today. Eat some turkey, or tofurkey, if that's its gig. Maybe BLAM! is just like the old guy that buys a 12 pack of beer every day.
 
You know the guy I mean.. what's his name... oh yea! Aaron!
