My Annual Gratitude List


As I’ve mentioned in past years, bloggers are required to create a gratitude list each November. I think it’s written in the Affordable Care Act (somewhere between “quagmire” and “socialism”). Here are the things I’m grateful for this year:

  • My address doesn’t include the words “Syria,” “Juarez,” or “Detroit.”
  • I wasn’t involved in a sex scandal. (I wanted to be, but couldn’t make it happen.)
  • American Horror Story. Specifically Jessica Lange. Oh, and Kathy Bates. And Angela Bassett.
  • Shaving cream.
  • Lady Gaga overcoming her debilitating shyness.
  • Denny’s bacon menu.
  • Sloths

  • CAPTCHA security codes. (I feel like a secret agent typing the indecipherable letters/numbers.)
  • Dogs with happy, waggy tails.
  • The NSA set up shop in my backyard. Now I can feel safe.
  • Movie theater popcorn.
  • Miley Cyrus taught us how to appropriately appreciate demolition equipment.

  • My city has not been used in a headline with the words “typhoon,” “hurricane” or “Anthony Weiner.”
  • Dennis Rodman is our ambassador to North Korea.
  • Pie. Any kind of pie.
  • San Diego.
  • Kim Kardashian finally found true love. Again.
  • Swear words.
