Thanksgiving
airbrushed, thoughtful

I know, I haven't posted for days.

I was busy finishing test 8 in my history book. I usually don't spend so much energy on one test, but I had incentive.

You see, all major tests cover a full unit. And all books (except for Planning Your Carreer which is only 5 units long) are 8 units long.

And there are no Final tests.

I just finished my history class. I'm thankful for that. And I bought myself Super Monkey Ball Jr. (GBA) to celebrate... that game kicks some serious tail. It is also harder than diamonds.

So, what are y'all (y'all being defined as "those who want to bother to answer") doing for Thanksgiving? Ours consists probably of ground-turkey tacos, chocolate chocolate-chip cookies (take 3 hrs to make and is worth every nanosecond), mashed potatoes, broccoli, and possibly green bean casserole.

Question 2: What are you all thankful for?

I'm glad that I got the lot in this life that I did. My family is in good financial shape, I'm learning stuff, I'm enjoying myself here. Sure, I'd rather be shaped like a dragon again, but we can't have everything.

And I've got friends- judo class, co-workers at the Science Center (we're a close-knit team), online...

I really don't honestly know what more I could want. I guess I'm just lucky. With all the problems I do have, I know I have it easier than most...

I don't take it for granted.

Answer 1: Absolutely nada. We don't really tend to celebrate your winning a war against us ;)

Answer 2: The fact that I've done half of my History coursework... that I'm academically (if not socially) intelligent... for my family and privileges, despite their problems... draconity, I suppose, is something to be thankful for..

Uhh... Mithent... about answer 1...

What's really funny is how that goes together. You're glad that half of History is done... while being a bit off on it. It's Independance Day where we rub it in that we kicked your-- uh, that we celebrate our independance from Britain. Thanksgiving is actually older, from the pilgrims actually getting food- thanks to the local natives.

Point taken. Incidentally, it's not American history - we don't study that except for the Great Depression - it's actually to do with Gallipoli in World War One.

All that fuss over taxes on tea, and now you all want coffee ;)

Well, I drink tea in the morning instead of coffee.

Well I spent my Thanskgiving doing very little. It involved doing laundry, mulling over cleaning my room and going to see my darling dragonmate on his lunchbreak, otherwise very little.

As for what I am thankful for. I am thankful to be in Michigan now. I am thankful I have good friends. I am thankful for many many things, but most of all, I'm tankful I have someone to love, who loves me back =)

Love is always a reason to rejoyce.
