A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Happy Thanksgiving 2008

I'm thankful for a great number of things, including all (both) of my Avid Fans.

I've also got a great nasty cold right now. I'm gathering strength for a family dinner. But I wanted to be thankful in public for, in no particular order:

Community theatre
Mme Metro
Steady, paid work
Reasonably good health
Living in a great community
The future government, which hopefully will either be an anaemic Conservative minority or a Liberal squeak with increased Green presence.

I hope that all of you have something for which to be thankful at this time.

Well I have to be thankful to God that I reached my 47th birthday because if it was down to the doctors sticking tubes in me and risking infections that kill I may not have done!

I have to be thankful I'm a Christian and live in a country with laws as my ex sent a couple of nasty upsetting missives that arrived on my birthday (and not by chance although that's what he would claim... as if I'd never met and got to know the man) and I could have happily punched him. May he stay in Australia having a wonderful time. Preferably in the outback.

I have to be thankful that PH has thrown his toys out the pram again over some huuuuge misdemeanor I've allegedly made in my comments on Conservative Home (Re: PH replies) and I've realised that nothing I say or do will ever be OK in his opinion.

And I have to be thankful for friends. Like you :-) Who can turn the niggles and spits of the day into background noise while I concentrate on thier good wishes.

Thankyou for your happy birthday, hope you enjoyed the beer for me :-)) I hope your cold gets better soon. Did you see the remedy I put on Raincoasters site? Brandy, milk and honey, warmed.

PS: I had a 'wobbly coffee' ie. a coffee with cointreau. hic!

@Az:
Word. I'm glad you have so much thanks to give at such a time as this.

@Philipa:
Sometimes I feel it's really too bad there's no way to punch your ex in the face via internet.

Also glad to see you've come to terms with Mr H's seeming inability to cope with your commentary.

And we should all be thankful for alcohol. If more people drank, the world would be a better place. Consider Mr. Bush, who claims to have been abstemious for many long years. Doesn't he always look as if he could do with a drink?

He does indeed, Metro. But as he has his finger on the nuclear button then I think the voices he hears whilst sober are quite enough ;-)

You know, everyone came to dislike Bliar and think anyone would be better. They got Gordon (engineered by Bliar) Just think - they could swop Bush for Palin!

@Philipa:
The voices he hears whilst sober come, alas, from inside his own head.

And I while I'm incredulous and cannot see why the M-P campaign isn't at ten percent (without apparent reasons other than truly ugly ones we'd like to believe people were well and truly past), I don't think the support McCain's retained is enough to make him successful.

It's truly a pity that someone who stood for something and was vilely slandered for it in 2000 has now come full circle. To the point where he even hired proteg├ęs of Karl Rove, the slimemeister who in 2000 scuttled his chances with a dirty push-poll in South Carolina, to shill for him.
