The way we normally celebrate Thanksgiving in this house has apparently had a big ol' honkin' wrench thrown in the plans...
Colin decided to tell me that he was hoping we (& by "we" he means ME, since that guy can't cook anything that doesn't say "heat on high for 3 minutes" and have a Cumberland Farms label on it) could go more traditional for Thanksgiving... which means he tried to convince me to cook a turkey (which I don't like), make stuffing (which I don't eat), cranberry sauce (which I won't eat), and then went off on a drunken tangent about side dishes he'd like to have. I told him I wasn't a fan of turkey, I refused to cook one, and the best he'll get out of me is some chicken I'll throw in a crockpot. Pretty sure he accepted it since he really didn't have any other choice in the matter.
This year however, if/when asked what I am thankful for.... I will have a big long list. At the top of it will still be my Thanksgiving LAST year. A Thanksgiving I spent in a country that doesn't even celebrate that holiday (& understandably so, since we did kinda give them the big ol' "Peace out! Chumps!"... then came here to America to steal this country...)
I will also be thankful for :
my kick ass new faux fur throw on my bed (even if it sheds on me like a cat in late spring),
the killer boots I just scored that are actually tall enough for my long ass stems (even if they put me at 6'2)
the dress I fell in love with in blue, and found in orange (♥) too (even if the majority of people hate orange, I LOVE it)...
the new(to me) car I just got (& will be obsessed with for quite a while),
and the fact that I am finally able to stop sneering at my reflection in the mirror most days... trust me, that's a big one.... I figure I'm less than 2 months from 40 (*gasp!* I know!)
|11/11/11... no make up, no nothin'... early morning taking the beast out for her morning... well.. you know... :)|
... so I had better just suck it up and accept things as they are, and If I can do that, and other people can not? Um... fuck them! I'm (almost) 40! I'm fun! & I still get carded... and I will always find wearing devil horns to be funny.....
