Turkey Day!

Look, I resisted titling this "Happy Thanksgiving, bitches!" Aren't you proud of me? It took a lot of willpower.

Today's post comes to you straight from the front desk of work- how original! Nope, no Thanksgiving off for me! Two of my sisters plus various nieces and nephews are over at my house right now, stuffing themselves silly. I hope they leave me some leftovers!

Yesterday was my "day off". I put it in quotes because I ended up working for almost 6 hours anyway. But hey! That's less than 8, so it was still good!

My original plan had been to get up early and go to the Springfield library before dance class. Then I found out that we didn't have dance, so I volunteered to come in and work after my library trip.

I stopped at my favorite gas station on my way to Springfield, and as I was washing my windows, a van pulled up just *blasting* Metallica. I gave them a raised eyebrow, which basically said "If you're going to play something so loud that we all have to listen to it, couldn't you come up with something a little better than Metallica?" They left it playing while they pumped gas... "EXIT LIGHT! ENTER NIGHT!"... they left it playing while they went in to pay... "OFF TO NEVER NEVER LAND!"

I finally finished my windows and got back in my car, turning my own music up so that I wouldn't have to hear theirs anymore.

"BLACKBIRD SINGING IN THE DEAD OF NIIIIIIIIIIIGHT..."

For the record, some songs just don't work well at full blast. (And I discovered that if you're going to use the Beatles for this purpose, Come Together works MUCH better)

And on that note, I am going to totally change topics here and present you with this list of 20 Things I'm Thankful for this year:

1. 39 days till the end of the year. I will survive!

2. My taxes are going to be super easy to file this year. I had only ONE job this year! And it's the easy kind where they give you a W2 and everything! I'm going to be able to do my taxes in like three seconds!

3. Today is Thanksgiving, and not only has it not snowed yet this year, it was eighty degrees when I left the house today! The temperature drops a LOT when the sun goes down, but just having sun this late in the year makes me blissfully happy!

4. I was just sitting here wishing that someone fun would come in, because the last several people have been so grumpy. A few people later, a girl noticed I was watching Gilmore Girls (the Thanksgiving episode, no less!) and asked if I watched it Tuesday. Apparently her DVR ate it, so I got to give the two minute summary, which was surprisingly fun! Not many of my friends watch the same shows I do (Except for KT), so getting to discuss it all girly-like was fun.

5. Tallulah Jane.

6. My momma. She made me brownies a few nights ago! I am so thrilled anytime someone feeds me.

7. Vacation coming up, super soon!

8. Starbucks frappuccino. I would not have survived this year without it! I doubt I would have survived this DAY without it!

9. Music. Music is so therapeutic for me. I am so grumpy every morning (and by “morning” I mean “2:30pm”) when I am leaving the house, but I throw on some good music, and I’m in a great mood in no time.

10. I’ve been able to work a ton of overtime lately, which I reeeeally needed with my upcoming trip!

11. There are supposed to be leftovers waiting for me when I get home. YAY, food!

12. I’m thankful for the creative streak I’ve been on lately. I’ve been very much in the mood to create, and I love when that happens!

13. I am so thankful for my comfy chair at home. This chair is the single best piece of furniture I have ever owned. Everyone who comes to my house wants to sleep in it, even though we have guest rooms. This is one awesome chair, my friends!

14. Speaking of friends, I am also thankful for those! I have one friend that sings me Elvis songs over the phone. It doesn’t get much better than that!

15. I am thankful for Taco Bell, which has been keeping me from starving lately.

16. I am thankful for the awesome jeans I am wearing today, because they look awesome on me, and they even give me a butt!

17. I’m thankful for the point of my life that I’m in right now. I am a little freaked out by 25 being right around the corner, but for the most part, this is a good age.

18. I’m thankful for my awesome car, Apple. She has been very good to me this year, other than that whole needing new brakes thing. Oh Apple, you even go topless anytime I ask. You rule.

19. I mentioned Tallulah, but not Tiger Lily or the birds or the fish, so I’ll add them in here. Lily always makes me laugh when she sits like a person, or flops down like a little drunk kitty.

20. Did I mention that there’s just over a month of work left? And that I get to go on vacation soon? And that they’re even paying me unemployment this year? And that there is just over a month left? And vacation? And and and!


One thing I love about the holidays is that they are always playing a ton of movies on TV, and just in case you happened to miss the fact, I loooove movies!

They’re supposed to be playing the first three Harry Potter movies on ABC Family this weekend, to kick off their 25 days of Christmas. WHY do they always play HP as a “Christmas” movie? Yes, most of them have a Christmas scene, but they are so not Christmas movies! This confuses me so much! Spiderman has a Thanksgiving scene, right? So why aren’t they playing it today? Rent has TWO Christmasses in it, why isn’t that a Christmas movie, then? Two minutes of Christmas does not a Christmas movie make, people! Arrgh!

Oh, come on, you have got to be kidding me. I was just flipping through the channels to try to find something to watch until Grey’s comes on, and they are playing Spiderman 2. If it were Spiderman 1, I would think that fox was watching what I type. This is freaking hilarious!!! It’s a good thing the lobby was empty when I found it, because my jaw dropped and I said “You have got to be fucking kidding me!” a little too loudly. And then I nearly fell on the floor laughing.
