With Thanksgiving drawing near, I feel it is important to grouch less and give thanks more. Yes, dear hannihaus readers, tis the season to reflect and be grateful for those things that make life worth living –Things like God, family, and . (God I love that show! And I love you too Mischa Barton, even though you don’t really have any boobs to expose.)
So yeah, Thanksgiving. This year as I gather with family and friends around the holiday table, I will be giving thanks for the following:
1. My iPod –My favorite toy since February, I have scarce spent a day without plugging her in and tuning out. I love the thing so much. Seriously, I haven’t had this much fun with an electronic device since 1998 when I stole CG’s camcorder to film a re-enactment of the Trojan War for English class. We spent six bucks on rubbers for the battle scene, and still only got a “B.” We were robbed.
2. Chrismas music –Call me a freak, but I live for the stuff. From October 1 to December 31, I listen to Christmas tunes almost exclusively. You can imagine my horror then, when just last night, I realized there was no “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” on the old iPod. Reacting quickly, I visited my favorite Russian mp3 download site, picked out a couple cds, and for three bucks (or 86.423 rubles), I had a nice digital chrismix going.
3. Shame –Yes, I’m glad I feel remorse for downloading, as part of my (perfectly legal) Russian purchase, the . What was I thinking? That little yuletide monstrosity set me back $1.83. Damn! I could’ve spent that money on something that’s actually entertaining, like rubber bands, a generic toothbrush, or a 20-pack of panty liners, for instance.
4. Joy –While perusing the Web for the available offerings, I was pleased to see that Britney Spears was not included in the Mariah Carey/Christina Aguilera/Clay Aiken holiday CD club. As of yet, Mrs. Spears has not released Merry Xmas Frum Me 2 U Baby, and I personally hope she never does. On a related note, it seems Britney’s hubby, Kevin Federline might be doing a project for the Special Olympics… well, at least that’s what I figured after hearing his rap, because it was straight up retarded.
I’ll probably also give thanks for a few other misc. things like, you know, WINNING THE CHRISTMAS JESUS DRESS UP MAGNET SET (eff yeah!), clean underwear, Chipolte vegetarian burritos, the cool Bright Eyes DVD Maaa is sending for my birthday (Dec. 2 - and yes, I do accept gifts from adoring hannihaus readers), pink nike arm bands, boys who wear makeup, and sparkly silver belts.
So, dear hannihaus readers, let’s talk about the good things in life. What are you thankful for?
