Martha's Present To You

You know how at Thanksgiving dinner you go around the table and say what you're thankful for and the pressure is high and they always start at the furthest point from you at the table and you're thinking "family" but then someone else says "family" and then crap, you have to come up with a new answer but then someone else steals "this meal" and "my friends" and "my health" and "you all at this table" and you're thinking CRAP, PEOPLE, STOP STEALING MY ANSWERS!

My gift to you this holiday season: a kick-ass list of backup gratefulness!

Things to be Thankful For If You Are Lucky Enough To Have Them

- potable water
- literacy
- indoor plumbing
- the internet
- Adele's Someone Like You
- free speech
- your adorable (insert pet name here)
- the right to vote
- Timothy Olyphant
- a job
- equality
- The Vampire Diaries
- access to first rate healthcare
- a safe place to sleep
- any first world problem

Can I also stick in a personal gratefulness plug for Gigi going into the holiday season healthy? Sure I's my blog entry.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving weekend everyone!
